Ok--I build pretty nice desktops, but don't work or repair laptops and I'm stuck. Got the GF a sony vaio laptop model vgn-nr310e service tag # c3lr1b11 she has a 14 yr old son, so she set him up a limited use account, and herself a hidden admin account with a bios password. We broke up, and she left it, since I paid for it, but I can't clear it or do almost anything since I don't have admin privledges. How do I get by this ?? I tried my d-ban disk, but it won't run, since I would have cleared it and reloaded it. I have a dell that's alot nicer, and I want to sell this 1, but can't until i get passed this. Where is the cmos battery ?? I don't do much laptop work except to add memory or replace a hard drive. I tried a couple of passwords, which were wrong, but it gave me a key and said sony support would provide a 1 time password, but they won't !!! Worst customer service ever, by the way !!! Can anyone help ??

Your going to have to call Sony up, provide proof of ownership and they'll clear the password for you.
