Well the failsafe way to do that is to remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard. But that involves opening the case to the laptop and finding/removing it.
Opening a laptop is certainly not an easy thing to do, however.
Another option is to find your model number, go to the SONY website and find the manual. There may be instructions in the manual on how to clear the CMOS password.
Also, there is sometimes a RESET button on the bottom of laptops. (It'll usually require a paperclip to activate it.) If your laptop has that, then it'll most likely clear the CMOS password.

Your Computer is shipped with the Recovery partition, a hidden partition in the Computer. You can use the Recovery partition to reinstall the preinstalled Operating System, Applications and the Drivers. Please note that performing a System Recovery will delete all the data from the Computer and restores the Computer back to the factory settings. However, you can backup the important data using the Rescue Data feature available in the Recovery Center (Recovery partition). Let me provide the complete details to backup the data and to perform the System Recovery.
Please let me know if this does not work.
