Replacing the Lithium Battery
!
Before opening the system unit, save and close all open files, exit all open
applications, turn off the power to all attached peripheral devices, shut
down the computer, and unplug the power cord.
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 22).
Do not handle damaged or leaking batteries.
The lithium battery may explode if mistreated. Do not disassemble it or
dispose of it in fire.

Fax/Modem Card
The fax/modem card occupies PCI slot No. 1. Your computer is either
installed with a HomePNA modem or Lucent 1648 modem depending on
the configuration you purchased.
To determine the modem installed on your computer, locate the RJ-11
jacks on the back of your system. If one RJ-11 jack exists, you have a
HomePNA modem; if two RJ-11 jacks exist, you have a Lucent 1648
modem.
77
78
VAIO Digital Studio™ System Reference Manual
HomePNA Modem
The HomePNA standard uses frequency division multiplexing (FDM) to
use the same phone line for voice and data transmission. This enables
network access for any compatible HomePNA device that can be plugged
into a phone jack (RJ-11) in your home.
The HomePNA modem installed in your VAIO computer has a single
jack (RJ-11). If you want to use a single wall jack for your computer’s
Internet access and for a standard telephone, you can use an optional
1-to-2 jack adapter (splitter) in the telephone wall jack to accommodate
both lines.
Refer to the Home Networking Solutions: Using the HomePNA Modem with
Sony VAIO Computers documentation that accompanied your computer(s)
and the installation instructions that accompanied the HomePNA
device(s) for further information on the HomePNA modem.

Video Card
The video card occupies slot No. 4 (AGP slot). The video card has two
ports: a standard VGA-style port, and a DVI port.
The VGA-style port is a standard 15-pin high-density VGA-style port on
the rear bracket.
The DVI port is a 24-pin DVI port that can be attached to a Sony XGA
LCD panel (PCVA-15XD2), which uses a DVI connector cable (sold
separately). The DVI port can also be connected to any other DVIequipped 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 has 32 MB of SDRAM and has a 128-bit wide bus.

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

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.
