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.

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

of 6 watts.
✍ i.LINK is a trademark of Sony used only to designate that a product contains an
IEEE 1394 connection. The i.LINK connection may vary, depending on the software

connection may not communicate with each other.
Refer to the documentation that came with your compatible i.LINK
device for information on operating conditions and proper connections.
Before connecting compatible i.LINK devices to your system, such as an

add-on cards to expand the functionality of your system. The length of
the add-on card should not exceed 9.05 inches.
✍ Add-on card configuration varies by model. Some models, such as Configure-to-Order (CTO)
systems, may contain preinstalled add-on cards.

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 it is turned off. The lithium battery has
a typical life of three years, after which the battery may be too weak to
power the CMOS memory.
!
Do not handle damaged or leaking batteries.
The lithium battery may explode if mistreated. Do not disassemble it or
dispose of it in fire.
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).
1
Reboot your computer by selecting Shut Down... from the Start
menu, and then selecting Restart.
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 57). Make a list of all the BIOS options that
are different from their default values. 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.

Press Enter, type Y when prompted to discard changes, then press
Enter to exit the BIOS Setup Utility.

Choose the size of the memory module and configuration as shown
in the following table. Memory modules can vary in size and speed
between sockets. The minimum memory size is 128 MB. The
maximum memory size is 1.0 GB. The BIOS automatically detects the

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.
If a system error occurs, the Sony Online Support technicians require the
number of beeps your system produces.
