Configuring the System Board

The system board contains a CMOS Clear configuration jumper, and two sets of reserved jumper blocks (do not change).

The CMOS and Non-Volatile RAM (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.

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 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 69). 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 Select Exit Discarding Changes from the main menu using the right arrow key.

5 Press Enter, type Y when prompted to discard changes, then press

Enter to exit the BIOS Setup Utility.

6 Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord.

7

Remove the side cover (see “Removing the Side Cover” on page 22).

28 VAIO Digital Studio Reference Manual

8

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

Card” on page 25) 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.

9 Use a small flathead screwdriver or your finger to push in (not down) against the small tab at one end of the battery holder to pop out the battery.

Push in (not down) to pop out battery

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...

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 85

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.
