Configuring the System Board

The system board contains two configuration jumpers that provide three modes of operation: Normal mode, Clear CMOS mode, and BIOS

Recovery 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.

BIOS Recovery mode sets the CPU input clock to 100 MHz (fast mode) and attempts to perform a blind BIOS update.

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

Replacing the Lithium Battery

You may need to replace the lithium battery if your computer consistently loses the date or time settings after turning it off. The lithium battery has a typical life of three years, after which the battery may be too weak to power the CMOS memory.

!

When you remove the lithium battery, all values stored in the CMOS memory

(BIOS setup values and Plug and Play values) may be lost. Although the computer can hold the charge for a short time while replacing the battery, it is safer to assume that the settings will be lost. When the values are lost, the

BIOS values revert to their factory-default settings (see “Accessing the BIOS

Setup Utility” on page 18).

Do not handle damaged or leaking batteries.

The lithium battery may explode if mistreated. Do not disassemble it or dispose of it in fire.

1

Reboot your computer by selecting Shut Down... from the Start menu, and then selecting Restart the computer.

2

If the error message “Error: Check date and time settings”appears during the reboot sequence, press F3, then press F2 during the reboot process to access the BIOS Setup Utility. Otherwise it is not necessary to replace the battery at this time, and you can skip all remaining steps.

3

Compare all the BIOS options to their default settings (see “BIOS

Setup Options” on page 77). Make a list of all the BIOS options that

are different from their default values. You will refer to this list when you restore the BIOS settings later.

4

Press ESC, then select Exit from the main menu using the right arrow key. The Exit Discarding Changes is automatically selected (it is the first item in the list).

5

Press Enter, type N when prompted to save, then press Enter to exit the BIOS Setup Utility.

6

Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord.

7

Remove the left side panel (see “Removing the Left Side Panel” on page 24).

8

Remove the bottom panel (see “Removing the Bottom Panel” on page 25).

34

VAIO MicroTower System Reference

9

If necessary, remove any add-in cards (see “Removing an Add-in

Card” on page 31) to gain access to the battery. You may also need to

disconnect some cables.

!

Touch any exposed metal part of chassis to discharge static electricity in your body before handling an add-in card or other sensitive electronic component.

10

Insert a small flathead screwdriver into the small space at the top of the battery holder.

KY0072.VSD

11

Gently pry the battery out and dispose of it according to the instructions that came with the new battery.

12

Insert the new battery into the battery holder, with the plus (+) side up.

The Sony CR2032 battery is recommended. Using a type of battery other than a

CR2032 may present a risk of fire or explosion.

13

Replace any add-in cards that were removed.

14

Reconnect any cables that were disconnected.

15

Replace the bottom panel (see “Replacing the Bottom Panel” on page 28).

16

Replace the left side panel (see “Replacing the Left Side Panel” on page 29).

17

Reconnect the power cord and turn on the computer.

35

18

If the error message “Error: Check date and time settings.” appears during the reboot sequence, press F3, then press F2 to access the BIOS

Setup Utility. If no error message displays, the computer’s BIOS settings were retained during the battery replacement and you can skip the remaining steps.

19

Refer to the list you made in step 3 and restore any non-default BIOS

settings (see “BIOS Setup Options” on page 77).

20

Press ESC, then select Exit from the main menu using the right arrow key.

21

Select Exit Saving Changes using the down arrow key, then press

Enter to save the changes and exit the BIOS Setup Utility.

The computer’s BIOS settings are now restored.

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

91

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.
