Did you buy the computer new or used?

Can you boot to Windows or will it only get to the BIOS?

Can you change other BIOS settings or not?

If you are trying to get into your BIOS on a laptop to do any sort of overclocking/tweaking I highly suggest you do not. Laptops typically do not have adequate cooling and/or hardware temperature headroom to support this, and parts are much more expensive to replace.

I would suggest contacting the vendor to see if they know. If not, I would contact Sony customer support and ask if they know a quick BIOS reset (similar to what flipping a header would do on a desktop motherboard), or some other sort of workaround.

Hope this helps

I am not sure about this, but you may be able to reset the BIOS similarly to how you can reset a desktop BIOS with a reset jumper. I don't know if laptops come with this sort of feature, but it would require dismantling a little of the laptop... Many laptop keyboards pop out to reveal some of the internals... You might be able to do some research on it.

Sorry I couldn't help you more specifically :(  best of luck to you!
