Call Sony. Even one of the latest password removals cannot remove BIOS password. IBM and HP does it, I think Sony does it too

How can i reset my bios password ,logged out/dell computer


You can call Dell and they can reset the bios password for you. But if it doesn't have a warranty anymore you can simple open the casing of your computer and there's pin(jumper) on the motherboard that you can pull out and then put it back in. The password will be reset.

I think the convenient and easy way is to use a windows password recovery tool that can do all the job for you within a few minutes automatically! Windows Password Recovery 6.0 is an easy-to-use tool designed for resetting local administrator and user passwords on any Windows system. If you have forgotten your password, or are locked out, or you do not have access to the password of the system.

How do i bypass the primary drive lock password


On the mainboard near the coin battery you'll find a jumper. take it off and reboot. Replace it and reboot again. that works sometimes. If not you can go to the motherboards' BIOS like Phoenix and they have backdoors built in. Read on:
Backdoor passwords Many BIOS manufacturers have provided backdoor passwords that can be used to access the BIOS setup in the event you have lost your password. These passwords are case sensitive, so you may wish to try a variety of combinations. Keep in mind that the key associated to "_" in the US keyboard corresponds to "?" in some European keyboards. Laptops typically have better BIOS security than desktop systems, and we are not aware of any backdoor passwords that will work with name brand laptops.
WARNING: Some BIOS configurations will lock you out of the system completely if you type in an incorrect password more than 3 times. Read your manufacturers documentation for the BIOS setting before you begin typing in passwords

Somehow, somebody has manually placed admin password for your bios. Thats the only way it can be done. Try this

Introduction to BIOS Passwords The best method to reset a BIOS password depends on what BIOS the computer has. Common BIOS's include AMI, Award, IBM and Phoenix. Numerous other BIOS's do exist, but these are the most common.
if (!window.netshel_ord) { netshel_ord=Math.random()*10000000000000000; } if (!window.netshel_tile) { netshel_tile=1; } document.write(''); netshel_tile++;
Some BIOS's allow you to require a password be entered before the system will boot. Some BIOS's allow you to require a password to be entered before the BIOS setup may be accessed.
The general categories of solutions to reset a BIOS password are:
  • Using a Backdoor BIOS Password
  • Resetting the BIOS Password using Software
  • Resetting the BIOS Password using Hardware
  • Vendor Specific Solutions for resetting the BIOS Password
Using a Backdoor BIOS Password Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor password. The backdoor password is a BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOS password to. These passwords are typically used for testing and maintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwords from time to time.
AMI Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported AMI backdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.
Award Backdoor BIOS Passwords One reported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reported Award backdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo, d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, and ZJAAADC.
Phoenix Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX.
Backdoor BIOS Passwords from Other Manufacturers Reported BIOS backdoor passwords for other manufacturers include:
Manufacturer BIOS Password VOBIS & IBM merlin Dell Dell Biostar Biostar Compaq Compaq Enox xo11nE Epox central Freetech Posterie IWill iwill Jetway spooml Packard Bell bell9 QDI QDI Siemens SKY_FOX SOYO SY_MB TMC BIGO Toshiba Toshiba Remember that what you see listed may not be the actual backdoor BIOS password, this BIOS password may simply have the same checksum as the real backdoor BIOS password. For Award BIOS, this checksum is stored at F000:EC60.


The BIOS password can be reset on any system. Some systems are easy, others are more difficult. Any BIOS password can be reset with sufficient time, money and effort.

Sony laptop - phoenix bios password forgot .


You need to contact the manufacturer.

Most computers rely on one of three mechanisms
to reset a BIOS password.

1) Remove the CMOS-RAM 's keep-alive battery from the
motherboard, causing the CMOS-RAM to be cleared,
and the computer to revert to factory conditions.

This is typically a small silver cylinder, the size of a coin,
clipped or soldered onto the mother board. This is NOT the
same as your main battery pack.

2) Bridge (short circuit) a special jumper on the mother board
to clear the CMOS RAM. You need to know which jumper.
Shorting the wrong one could fry the computer.

3) A non-invasive reset using a secret code, key stroke
sequence or an RFID tag/dongle, similar to your car
immobilizer, which requires sending your laptop back to
the factory or authorized service center.
====

Modern laptops employ much stronger security measures, than
desktops, precisely because they are so portable and easily
stolen.

1) Each laptop has a unique serial number, permanently
programmed at the factory.

2) The BIOS password is much better protected.

3) Many laptops contain a proprietary crypto-chip, which
can be turned ON to prevent the hard-drive in a stolen PC
from being read or accessed.

4) Many laptops now have unique RFID tags embedded
which can be accessed from a distance to ID a lost
or stolen PC.

5) Many laptops with Broadband or Wi-Fi will periodically
call home, using dedicated WEB servers, and report
their GPS co-ordinates. This feature cannot be disabled.

For security reasons, manufacturers will not disclose their
secrete codes and features over the telephone, you may have
to send the PC back to them.

Sorry I could not be of more help.
