FCC Part 68
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the
FCC rules. The ringer equivalence number
(REN) and the FCC registration number are
printed on the modem board. If requested,
this information must be supplied to the
telephone company.
The REN is used to determine the quantity of
devices which may be connected to the
phone line. Excessive REN's on the telephone
line may result in the devices not ringing in
response to an incoming call. In most, but not
all areas, the sum of the REN's should not
exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number
of devices that may be connected to the line,
as determined by the total REN's, contact the
telephone company to determine the
maximum REN for the calling area.
This modem uses the USOC RJ-11 telephone
jack.
If this equipment causes harm to the
telephone network, the telephone company
will, when practical, notify you in advance
that temporary discontinuance of service
may be required. If advance notice isn't
practical, the telephone company will notify
you as soon as possible. Also, you will be
advised of your right to file a complaint with
the FCC if you believe it is necessary.
The telephone company may make changes
in its facilities, equipment, operations or
procedures that could affect the operations of
the equipment. If this happens, the telephone
company will notify you in advance, in order
for you to make the necessary modifications
in order to maintain uninterrupted service.
If trouble is experienced with this modem,
for repair or warranty information, please

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.

i.LINK Card
The i.LINK (IEEE-1394) card provides two 6-pin i.LINK (IEEE-1394)
connectors for devices that are also equipped with 6-pin i.LINK (IEEE1394) connectors. The i.LINK (IEEE-1394) card occupies PCI slot #3.
The two 6-pin i.LINK (IEEE-1394) connectors on the card bracket are
accessible from the back of the computer. Each 6-pin connector can
supply power from the computer to a connected device if that device also
has a 6-pin i.LINK (IEEE-1394) connector. Each connector supplies 10V to
12V. The total power supplied by both connectors cannot exceed 6 watts.
A cable connects the 8-pin header connector (CN5) on the i.LINK
(IEEE-1394) card to an interface unit mounted behind the front panel
cover. The interface unit provides the 4-pin i.LINK (IEEE-1394) connector
at the bottom right side of the front chassis. A power supply cable
connects to the 4-pin header connector (CN10).

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...
...the following passwords are required:
User password only
User password is required at bootup.
Supervisor password only
No password is required at bootup.
Supervisor password is required by most
setup options.
Both passwords
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.
