The configuration jumpers should never need changing unless otherwise directed by a technical support or service technician.

!

Before opening the system, save any open files, exit Windows, turn off the power of the computer and all attached peripherals, and unplug the power cord.

Clear CMOS Jumper

The Clear CMOS jumper provides two modes of operation: Normal mode, and Clear CMOS mode.

Normal mode allows normal access to the BIOS Setup Utility. The Central

Processing Unit (CPU) input clock is forced to remain at 100 MHz (fast mode), and the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) uses the User CMOS settings (as opposed to the System CMOS settings). The CMOS and

NVRAM settings are only cleared if the checksum test returns false.

Access to specific setup fields is controlled by a supervisor password or user password.

The Clear CMOS mode removes the password that is stored in CMOS. No other parameters are cleared.

To change the Clear CMOS jumper, perform the following steps:

1

Remove the system cover (see

“Removing the System Cover” on page 20).

2

Set the jumpers as directed by a service technician (also see

“CMOS

Clear (CMOS)” on page 59).

3

Covering an Open I/O Slot

Slot covers prevent air from escaping through the empty hole. If air escapes, the components inside the computer cannot be properly cooled.

This may damage some components, especially the main processor

(which generates the most heat).

1

Fit the bottom end of the slot cover (removed earlier) between the chassis and system board.

KY0076.VSD

2

Push the slot cover in until it rests firmly on the lip in the chassis. All add-in card brackets and slot covers rest on this lip.

About User and Supervisor Passwords

The system allows you to specify up to two passwords (a User password and a Supervisor password) in the BIOS Setup Utility. The User password is required; the Supervisor password is optional.

Access to the BIOS Setup Utility depends on which passwords were previously set, as indicated next.

If you set these passwords...

User password only

Supervisor password only

Both passwords

...the following passwords are required:

User password is required at bootup.

No password is required at bootup.

Supervisor password is required by most setup options.

User password is required at bootup.

Supervisor password is required by most setup options.

Miscellaneous Technical Information

81

Beep Code Error Messages

During a normal bootup, a single short beep signifies that the system is

OK. Other beep patterns signify errors. The number of beeps indicates the specific error that occurred.

The Sony Online Support technical representative will need to know how many beeps your system produces if there is an error, so be sure to count the number of beeps before calling for support.
