    it's a bootup password. The sony is so old, and theres one on ebay for 30 dollars. I'd trash it before I'd contact sony

Hi, is this a windows logon password?
If so click on this link.
http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/
if it is for a boot up password then you may have to contact Sony.

I cannot guarantee that the software from the above link will work, as it may corupt some files, but give it a go.

Do you have any OS software to put on it?

I hope this helps, let me know.

Regards - Anthony

    You could check under the RAM compartment, under the ram might be the cmos battery which can be taken out and left for 5 minutes then reinserted.
    Take a look at this link, i don't know if any resembles yours but browes through it. you won't beleive what you will find on this site.

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.

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.

Sony Vaio Laptop PCG 9U1M


PCG-K415B is the correct model number the label is possibly the service tage or something.

Here are the specifications of your laptop
  • Intel Celeron D Processor 345 3.06GHz / 533MHz FSB
  • 512MB DDR SDRAM - Low cost double memory Offer - call for details
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD Dual Layer Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs, DVD+, DVD- and large Dual Layer DVD
  • 15.4" XGA xblacklogo.jpg Widescreen TFT Screen
  • ATI Mobility Radeon 345M 64MB shared graphics
  • Integrated wireless 802.11b/g LAN - Call for advice on Wireless networking
  • Integrated 3-in-1 card reader –Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition
  • Includes Sony Software Bundle
My guess is that the laptop is around 1 or 1and half year old as the celeron 3.06GHz is a relatively new processor.

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.
