Question about Sony VAIO Notebook
Hi I have a sony vaio PCG-3E2L,How I can to clear the CMOS ? Is there battery jamper ? (CMOS didnot clear with removing the battery)
The CMOS is a block of static RAM that will lose its data if power is removed.
most newer laptops are using a small block of Flash RAM (perhaps a block of addresses within the Flash BIOS chip itself) or other type of EEPROM chip to store the password.
No amount of removing batteries and pressing power buttons will change it
you might get some more information from the manual
hope this helps

I have set the password for administrator when i entered the bios set up. you can change its setting but not the configuration unless you've entered the password. you can't change the password with a new one if you cant enter the old password. Next time dont forget your password because laptops has its security even when stolen you cant open its bios set up if its protected by password. CMOS battery is in the mother board. You need a service technician to open your laptop to reset the bios setup battery.
