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.

Video Card
The video card occupies the AGP slot. The video card has two connectors:
a standard VGA-style connector, and a DVI connector.
The VGA-style connector is a standard 15-pin high-density VGA-style
connector on the rear bracket.
The DVI connector is a 24-pin DVI connector that can be attached to a
Sony XGA LCD panel (PCVA-15XD2), which uses a DVI connector cable
(sold separately). The DVI connector can also be connected to any other
DVI-equipped LCD/VGA monitor.
You can physically connect both a VGA and an LCD monitor at the same
time. However, you cannot use both monitors at the same time. If you
operate only one monitor to the system, the system automatically detects
which monitor is connected. If you connect both monitors, you must
choose one monitor from the Display settings.
The video card in the PCV-RX270DS has 16 Mbytes of SDRAM and has a
64-bit wide bus. The video card in the PCV-RX280DS has 32 Mbytes of
SDRAM and has a 128-bit wide bus.

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

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.

† Data on a DVD-ROM is read at a variable transfer rate, ranging from 6.6X at the innermost track to 16X at
the outermost track (the data transfer standard 1X rate is 1385 kbytes/s). The average data transfer rate is
11.3X (15,255 kbytes/s). Data on a CD-ROM is read at a variable transfer rate, ranging from 17.2X at the
innermost track to 40X at the outermost track (the data transfer standard 1X rate is 150 kbytes/s). The
average data transfer rate is 28.6X (4293 kbytes/s).
‡ CD-RW writing speed may vary, depending on the media. The maximum writing speed of the CD-R is 8X
