Cannot get on it because it has A password The person who sold it To me doesntknoW it. and the owner is deceased Idotget it off


Start with a live system (Ubuntu or Knoppix) and format the harddrive. Install a new System of your liking. If the laptop's bios is blocked by a password, it is more difficult, because you may have to open it and reset the the bios, by taking out the bios battery.
there is also password finder software out there, that you can download and run from a cd. http://password-and-key-finder.en.softonic.com/ for example.

Forgot bios for sony vgn-SR19XN


Bios passwords on laptops are only over rode by the the manufacture. This is because they are easy theft items. IBM for instance have a government contract so they will never offer you support for that. You can prove ownership to Sony they may have a master password. Good luck though not heard any company yet that will give that info over the phone. There is NO work around for a that other than Sony doing it.

Forgot password


Easiest way to recover password is use a password recovery tool like ophcrack, or do a fresh install AFTER you back up your harddrive as doing a fresh install could overwrite/format/delete anything you have on your harddrive.

I forgot my sony vaio bios password


Remove the battery, remove the power cord and start taking the laptop apart. You will need to remove the CMOS battery located on the motherboard and let it sit for an hour or two. Then but it all back together. The CMOS battery is a silver battery about the size of a nickel.

HAVE TRIED CHANGE THE CMOS BATTEWHAT CAN I DO NXTRY TO REMOVE BIOS PASSWORD BUT IT COUDNT WORK,?


Sony Vaio PCG and some Vaio VGN Series use the last 7 digits of the laptop serial number to calculate the bios master password. The serial number for a Sony Vaio is often located on the bottom of the laptop on a white sticker. The serial number may also be found by removing the battery and checking in the battery compartment. The link to unlockbiosrecovery.com below works on the following models:
PCG-C, PCG-F, PCG-GR, PCG-GRS, PCG-GRT, PCG-GRV, PCG-GRX, PCG-GRZ, PCG-N, PCG-NV205, PCG-QR, PCG-R, PCG-SR, PCG-SRX, PCG-TR, PCG-V, PCG-VX, PCG-X, PCG-Z, VGN-B, VGN-FS, VGN-S, VGN-T, VGN-TX1, VGN-X
I use http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Sony_Bios.php
For $20 they use the last 7 digits of the laptop serial number to calculate the bios master password and then email it to you in an hour. They guarantee it to work and you can call them if you have a question.

Hi



BIOS passwords can be reset in two ways,
1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting using software, here are two software's to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools

Please let us know if it works
