not too sure what you mean here.you can reset bios to default or can set bios to factory reset.to set default ...when you turn on pc ,message at bottom left hand screen indicates which key to press to enter setup(bios setup) note...its very brief;mines f 10 for instance.at startup press this key and select load default then select save settings and exit;then ur pc restarts with default settings.
To reset bios to factory requires disassembly.
you locate rtc and remove battery(looks like large watch battery)for 5 minutes then replace,reassemble and restart pc.you dont need to know what rtc means(real time clock)or what it looks like cos the battery is right next to it.

SOURCE: How do you replace the DVD/CD Player in the Sony Vaio PCG-2J3L?

It sounds like the bezel (the trim piece attached to the front of the drive) is what came off. You can usually still get it to open in this condition, but you have to get creative a bit.
typically the eject button is a physical button, but it depresses a small electronic button when you press it. This should get it to open. Otherwise, you can right-click the drive in my computer and select "eject". If that doesn't work, use the paper-clip method. Look for a small hole (on the bezel) which lines up with the emergency eject button on the drive. Straighten a paper clip and insert it at this point, which should eject the drive.
Then I would turn off the machine, (leaving the drive open) carefully turn it over. Look for a locking (retaining) screw on the underside of the laptop. On many models the screw is accessible without removing anything else, but I have seen where the screw is hidden under other components; proceed at your own risk here.
Once you have found the screw and removed it, that should be all that is holding it in. You can tug gently on the drive and it should slide right out.
From there, find the replacement model (I like ebay quite a bit for this type of part, since it will be much cheaper. Note the Model # which is usually on top of the drive on a label. It will make finding a replacement much easier than trying to shop by your laptop model #.
The key here is getting the correct type of data connection. As long as the bezel fits your computer, and unit will work (make sure you get the right kind of drive: DVD-R, DVD-ROM, CD-RW, CD-R, or some type of combo drive). While you can also find these parts on the internet, watch for some type of warranty on the product in case it fails to work. Many reputable sellers will have at least a 30 day warranty, which gives you time to test the product.
Once you have your replacement, examine it and make sure any trim pieces line up (you can also remove them from your old one if needed), then slide it into the slot, reinsert your locking screw, and you should be ready to test it.
I would test all functions of the unit right away: if it's a recorder, test burning a cd or dvd, play a dvd movie etc. to ensure everything works. I have seen a DVD-R drive that works for everything except recording DVD's (will play DVD's and CD's just fine, but not record).
Good luck and thanks for your question.
Vern

Sony vaio pcg-2j3l desktop will not power on


Just to clarify, the box (power brick) in the middle of the power cord is the power supply. With that said, there is a light on the box (may be green, blue, or some other color). Does it come on when you plug it in (assuming that the wall outlet or serge protector has power)? If it doesn't then the power cable needs to be replaced. If it does then there is something wrong with either the cable going between the box and the computer, the power connector, or the connector on the computer.

Forgot bios password sony vaio model PCG-3A4L


Most motherboards are made with a reset switch. It is a line of three pins, with a jumper over two of them. To reset the bios (completely... everything back to factory settings) you move the jumper onto the other end of this line. Then boot the system up, turn it off again, put the jumper back into its original position and there will be no bios password.
