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 16).
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 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 “CMOS
Setup Options” on page 67). 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.

About User and Supervisor Passwords
The system allows you to specify up to two passwords (a User password
and a Supervisor password) in the CMOS Setup Utility. The User
password is required; the Supervisor password is optional.
Access to the CMOS 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
77
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.
