Motherboard replacement instructions vaio vgn

Regarding motherboard replacement instructions for a Vaio vgn fz260e, do you need to reset bios with new mb by disconnecting battery? Also, dip switch settings on new mb (4 switches on or off)? Have replaced the MB but cannot activate Nvidia Graphics Chipset after powerup in Vista, when I try to rescore the laptop in Vista (Graphics reads a 1) it goes through the test and when it gets to mutimedia playback it bluescreens. This is a new MB replacement also have put in new ram. All else works fine but cannot use anything that calls on the Nvidia chip for graphics.

Sony Vaio Model VGN-FS640/W does not show having a battery.


The main battery needs to be replaced, or the charging ciruit on the motherboard is not working, remove main battery get a stiff toothbrush and clean terminals in the laptop incuding the battery, if no change! check the device manager to see if battery is present, if no! reset bios to factory default.

I want break our vaio vgn-sz440 bios password.i forget it


BIOS password can only reset by changing Jumper settings on the Motherboard. For this you need to open your notebook. You have to be very cautious while doing this, if you are not comfortable doing this, take your notebook to a nearest Computer repair shop. You can refer videos on Youtube to achieve this as there is no other way aroud to reset BIOS password.
