This phone number is for FCC-related
matters only.
This device complies with Part 15 of the
FCC rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply
with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant
to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur
in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try
to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
❑
❑
❑
❑
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the
equipment and the receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a
circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/
TV technician for help.
You are cautioned that any changes or modifications
not expressly approved in this manual could void
your authority to operate this equipment.
Only peripherals (computer input/output devices,
terminals, printers, etc.) that comply with FCC Class
B limits may be attached to this computer product.
Operation with noncompliant peripherals is likely
to result in interference to radio and television
reception.
All cables used to connect peripherals must be
shielded and grounded. Operation with cables,
connected to peripherals, that are not shielded and
grounded, may result in interference to radio and
television reception.

FCC Part 68
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC
rules and the requirements adopted by the ACTA. On
the modem card is a label that contains, among other
information, a product identifier in the format
US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this number
must be provided to the telephone company.
This modem uses the USOC RJ-11 telephone jack.
A telephone plug and jack used to connect this
equipment to the premises wiring and telephone
network must comply with the applicable FCC Part
68 rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. The
REN is used to determine the quantity of devices
which may be connected to the telephone line.
Excessive RENs 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 RENs
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 RENs, contact the
telephone company. For products approved after July
23, 2001, the REN for this product is part of the
product identifier that has the format
US:AAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ##
are the REN without a decimal point (e.g. 03 is a
REN of 0.3). For earlier products, the REN is
separately shown on the label.
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone
network, the telephone company will notify you in
advance that temporary discontinuance of service
may be required. But if advance notice is not
practical, the telephone company will notify the
customer 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 provide
advance notice in order for you to make the
necessary modifications in order to maintain
uninterrupted service.
If trouble is experienced with this equipment, for
repair or warranty information, please contact the
Sony Customer Information Service Center at
1-888-4-SONY-PC (1-888-476-6972), or write
to the Sony Customer Information Center,
12451 Gateway Blvd., Fort Myers, FL 33913,
or find Sony Customer Service on the Web at
http://www.sony.com/pcsupport. If this equipment
is causing harm to the telephone network, the
telephone company may request that you
disconnect the equipment from the network
until the problem is resolved.
Repair of this equipment should be made only
by a Sony Service Center or Sony authorized
agent. For the Sony Service Center nearest you,
call 1-888-4-SONY-PC (1-888-476-6972),

Connection to Party Line Service is subject to state
tariffs. Contact the state public utility commission,
public service commission, or corporation
commission for information.
If your home has specially wired alarm equipment
connected to the telephone line, ensure the
installation of this equipment does not disable your
alarm equipment. If you have questions about what
will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone
company or a qualified installer.
Please use a surge arrestor against electrical surges.

The amount of preinstalled memory may vary, depending on the system
configuration you purchased. Your computer may ship with all available
memory slots filled. See the online specifications sheet for details about
the amount of memory installed in your computer. For memory
replacement or upgrades, use only 2.5 V, 64-bit, PC2100 DDR-SDRAM
Dual InLine Memory Modules (DIMM).
✍ You can purchase additional memory modules, accessories, and peripheral equipment from
your local retailer.

About Hard Disk Drive Installation
Your computer comes with an available internal bay to hold a second
standard 3.5-inch hard disk drive. Some models, such as Configure-toOrder (CTO) systems, may already have a second hard disk drive
installed. Your system can support ATA-33, ATA-66, or ATA-100 hard
disk drives. Sony recommends using an ATA-100 hard disk drive to take
full advantage of your system's features.
✍ The hard disk drive access indicator is lit when either internal hard disk drive is active.
!
Make sure you observe the proper safety precautions when you upgrade your
Sony computer.
Replacing the original hard disk drive
If you replace the original, factory-installed hard disk drive, your system
cannot restore the drive partitions, operating system, or original software,
using the preinstalled Hard Drive Recovery utility.
The Hard Drive Recovery utility is a quick and easy-to-use program that
can restore your system if it becomes unstable or stops working properly.
To enable you to recover your system with the VAIO Recovery utility, you
can purchase a Partition Recovery CD Assembly (Partition Recovery
ASSY) to restore your system.
Follow these steps to order the Partition Recovery CD Assembly:
1
2
Connect to the Internet.
