How do I unlock my Sony VAIO computer. It is asking me for a BIOS password XXXXX startup.
I will try to help you on this issue
Instructions 1.Press "Power" to turn on your Sony Vaio. 2.Watch your monitor to see the Sony Vaio logo appear. This logo usually appears after two or three seconds. 3.Press "F3" to unlock the BIOS on your Sony Vaio.
hope this helps
This did not work.
My VAIO screen comes up, I press F3 and it still goes to the BIOS password XXXXXX.
did you get any error now
It just comes up to a screen that says Enter BIOS Password. The screen is black and blue with white lettering.
ok now try to reset the BIOS password
How do I reset it?
I am now to a screen that is black and red with white letters. It says:
try to use the below Instructions 1.Turn on your Sony VAIO computer. 2.Press the F2 at the "VAIO" screen to enter the BIOS. 3.Press the left and right directional arrows to navigate between the settings. 4.Press the up and down directional arrows to navigate between the different values and fields of each setting. 5.Press the key specified at the bottom of the screen to modify and make changes to any settings. 6.Navigate to the "Exit" setting tab once all changes are made. Select "Save Changes" to save the current changes you made. Select "Exit Without Saving Changes" if you don't want to make any changes to your current settings. Press "Enter." Your computer will reboot with the new settings.
Hope this works
If any problem you can reply me
Key:V9FT-728R-JP7T-892TEnter Onetime Password
The F2 did not work either.
Went strait to enter bios password XXXXXX
just do the all steps
then tell me what happens
It will not go to a different screen. Goes strait to the black and blue screen to enter BIOS password.
Right now I am at the blue and black screen that says enter Bios password.
The AVIO screen and this screen are the only screens I can get to. The F2 and F3 keys do nothing.
I've found a few that will ask for a password XXX as it turns out there is none. You just hit enter with it blank.
to reset it is to clear it with the CLR_CMOS jumper/pins on the motherboard.
Another way would be to reflash the bios
