    Hi no when you turn computer on it has the name kam then it asks for a password i have tried typing one in but it keeps telling me it is the wrong one does this mean somebody has had this laptop before me as i brought it from Curry's. I cannot see that i have been issued one with the laptop.



    Thankyou

    Do you mean the product key? It's not a sticker on the notebook?

This is not a log-in password but the first user one ..and need to be written in the papers that came with the product ..or call to the seller and asks for it ..This will be asked for just the first time you use it ..and usually it asks for it when you try to install the operation system ..

Yes, it was pre-owned by someone named Kam.

Try this...

First try changing the login name to "administrator" and press enter with no password.

If you can not change the login name then...

When it is prompting you for the password, press together the CONTROL - ALT - DELETE keys twice.

You should get another login prompt and then try the name "administrator" with no password.

If you are able to get into the system, go to START > CONTROL PANEL > USERS and Create a new username for your self. If you are able to access the system later with the new user name, then later you can delete the Kam user.

You need to call Curry's with your receipt information and ask them about your laptop...ALL the info! whether it is refurbished or preowned.

Sony vgn-bx540b bios master password


If you are not the one who set up the Bios password, your options are to keep guessing or reset the cmos.

To reset the cmos, open your laptop and look for a small, silver, circular battery. Make sure everything is unplugged and remove the battery. Then, simply place the battery back into the computer. This should reset the bios and allow you to access it.

Hope this helps!

I need to change the boot order in my vaio vgn n32oe, and it asks for a password for bios....Then, after repeated attempts, it asked for a OneTime password, had some product key looking number...


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD.

Power socket is loose


dc jack socket for Sony VAIO VGN-FW is very easy to loose, I think you can replace the cabled dc jack, no solder work, plug in and work, see this reference page: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-vgnfw-series-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2647.html
the above item is with ground cable, it is known that sony FW uses both harnesses with or without ground cable, you can cut the ground cable directly if your laptop does not use it, or order from this page for the one without ground cable: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-07300012492a-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2782.html
hope this can help you

VAIO PASSWORD


it may not have a password set.
try just pressing enter.
if no password set then entering one would be wrong.
if it has no password then it would accept the blank space left when you just press enter and continue.
if not, let me know and i will try to run you through a few loopholes to get you past it.

UNINSTALL DE A.R.C.H.I.E. Program


Though Best Buy should of removed that for you, Sony has a hidden recovery partition that will restore everything to factory settings wiping your hard drive of anything you have now. When you boot up your computer press F12 to enter the recovery manager....If it's not F12 try F11, They are different for each manufacture.

Hope this helps.
