SOURCE: I need drivers for the sonvy vaio PCG-6F1L!

That is because the actual Sony model is VGN-S360.or VGN-S360P You should be able to verify it. The model nember is not on the bottom it is on the RH LCD hinge. I do not think you can download the drivers anywhere but you can try:
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNS360

or just buy aa set of recovery DVDs from Sony
If you have the VGN-S360:

SOURCE: forgot bios password sony vaio

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.

How Do I Boot A Sony VAIO PCG-Z505LS model # PCG-531A?


The BIOS one can usually be eliminated  by disconnecting the battery and shorting the terminals, if necessary, then plugging the battery back in.    The administrator pass work can sometimes be gotten around by pressing the F8 while loading,then changing it.   The most undesirable option is to reformat and buy another OS.   Sorry for the hard time.

Want to try to utilize an old sony Vaio PCG-F520


OK you can certainly add wireless to this machine. But be careful which type you buy. If this machine has windows 98 you have to ensure the wireless adaptor will be compatible. . you have two choices for the adepter type either USB or PCMCIA (aka PC Card) I'd go for the PCMCIA version, it will be more likely to play well with the older system. Also, Dont buy a MIMO card, a simple 802.11B or 802.11G compatible card will work. these are in the sub $40 price.

Dont attempt to install XP or VIsta on this PC, it will be unbearably slow. Stick with 98 or better yet windows 2000.

-Good Luck

Install Windows XP without a CD drive


You'll need to assign the CD drive (which should show up as USB devicein BIOS or setup) as first boot device, if capable on your model/Computer. After you press power button, you should see a menu or dialog that shows something like 'press F2' or 'Delete' to enter setup. Once in setup, you should navigate thru until you find boot options or something of that nature. Select 'Boot from CD' or ' USB Device'. You should now insert your XP CD into the drive, close the tray, then choose 'Save'. It should now let you boot from the XP CD. At the first screen, you should select 'R' for repair console. It will then ask you to select an installation, type a '1' and then press the 'Enter' key. Next line will ask you to type an Administrator password. If you have one, type it, then press Enter. If no password, just tap the Enter key. Now, at the prompt, type CHKDSK C: /r as in (C: a space /r). then tap the Enter. It shoild now attempt to repair your Windows 2000 installation. When it finishes, reboot, go back into Setup and change first boot device to hard drive. Select Save and reboot LT. Have fun!
