You can clear the bios in two ways; remove the cmos battery or some mb have a jumper to clear cmos without having to remove the battery. If you can enter the bios write down any settings that you may need since your bios will load defaults [and no password].
After doing this you will need to go into the bios and setup time, date, and any other parameters that are necessary for your computer.

:cool: Unfortunately, on most laptops clearing the cmos will not do anygood. Your best bet is to contact Sony support and they will provide you with a "master" password once you prove that you own the computer. If the tech you talk with won't provide you with the info. you might have to talk to his/her supervisor. I went through this a while back with DELL. Good luck. KW1
