Sony :: Vaio SZhow To Remove Known BIOS Password

May 14, 2010

I have a Sony SZ90 notebook, and would like to run a BIOS update on it. I have the latest BIOS (that I found with help from chaps on this forum). However it won't recognise the notebook when I run it.

I have wondered whether this is because I added a BIOS password to it ages ago. I know the password.

I would like to remove the password, but cannot for the life of me find how to do this in the BIOS.

Does any one know how to remove the BIOS password?

Dell Inspiron 6000 :: Bios Password - Reset Or Remove It

Mar 22, 2013

I have an Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop that has a Bios Password Set on it... and the password is not correct that we thought was the one for the laptop....  The password authentication system wont boot the laptop up until we enter the correct password... I have tried all the combinations that we thought the password is or was, but have not had any luck --- that being said the laptop is registered to me/ owned by me --- Can I provide the computer system tag -- that is shown on the screen and getting a reset password to overcome this obstacle.... The service tag is in my profile information and the computer system tag on the laptop bios password sign in screen is B*B*H*1-595B... I intentionally put the three * in the info, so I wouldn't compromise the service tag for my laptop for the world to see and use..

Sony :: How To Backup Vaio Z Original Bios While Flashing New Bios

Oct 16, 2009

Updated: Found a better way to backup Bios only, Please see the end of this message

Let say your Vaio Z is using Bios R4040M3 and you move to Bios R4041M3 to use the official VT support. Later on, you want to move back to R4040M3 to use the Advance Menu hack. Unfortunately, you cannot move back as Sony never publish the R4040M3 Bios update. This is my current situation.

I decided to investigate a way to back up the current Bios. Using a program called Universal extractor, I managed to extracted the files in the original Bios update. The bios update uses a program called Insydeflash to flash the Bios. The Insydeflash uses a file called platform.ini to control its setting.

In the platform.ini file, there is a section called [FDFile]. The section [FDFile] has a parameter called BackupName. If we put in a file name here, the Insydeflash should save your current Bios into that file. Unfortunately, I cannot make it work with the Sony supplied Insydeflash. (version 3.38).

I managed to get the newer version of Insydeflash (version 3.72). The newer version has a new ini section called [BackupROM], as the following:

..........
[BackupROM]
Flag=0
FilePath=c:
FileName=....................

Sony :: Vaio BIOS

Jul 10, 2009

I am very close to deciding on Sony for my next machine.

Half of the people hate them. Half love them. Half the reviews say there are crap. Half say they are machines built by Gods.

It is a lot to sift through.

The WEIRDEST thing I have heard is about the BIOS and how it is not really a completely hardware controlled BIOS like most are .....

Sony :: Vaio Z R4041M3 BIOS Disables EFI BOOT

Oct 24, 2009

I flashed by BIOS with the R4041M3 so I can install the latest NVidia drivers for Windows 7.

I wanted to enable "Advanced" options with the InsydeH20 hack (which requires EFI boot) - and I kept getting those

"Remove disc or other media" messages.

I thought something went wrong with my USB stick, tried at least 5 of them and finally also tried Windows image itself - with no luck!

Then, I switched back to old BIOS - and the EFI boot worked immediately on the first USB drive!

Sony :: Howto Enable VT On Vaio Z *tested*H2 Bios Hack

Oct 5, 2009

I`m very happy to have found a way to enable VT.

If you doenst know what VT is - YOU DONT NEED IT ^^

At first i was a little bit afraid, to take the risk to hack the Bios, but finally i take it.

Not only VT works now fine, also the advanced Bios Setup Screen, let me finetune everything i ever dream from. You could tweak many things, dont do there anything, if you doent know what you do.

Ok, back to Topic:

After some Internetresearch i found this link:

[url]

Please follow the instructions exactly. I have do also the same reverse for testing - you could go back, if you want.

But: with every Bios tweaking - you lose your warranty.

Here my Statement on this Blog. PLEASE, look there there if your Model is supportet - FIRST.....................

Sony :: Insyde HackingNew Vaio ZAdvanced Menu In BIOS

Apr 4, 2010

For even more advanced options (Overclocking, undervolting!) it is needed to disassemble setup executable to figure out where are those items stored. They are definitely inside the setup, but are not accessible even with this unlock.

VSS register which controls advanced menu is now: 0x258 (for old Z, it was 0x25A) - in advanced menu, you can configure SATA controller to IDE/AHCI/RAID, change lots of advanced features etc...

Now, I cannot share my bios dump as the serial number is inside. But I can give you info how to do it................

Acer :: How Can I Turn Off BIOS Password

Dec 25, 2009

I recently upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 through a clean install. Now I must have enable something I didn't want to because now it asks to put a password in before it boots. I know the password, that's not the problem.

The problem is I'd rather not have it ask me, and there's always a danger of it locking up on me if it gets input incorrectly.

So my question is, how do I turn it off? I did a clean install so I don't have most of the crap Acer throw in, including eManagement Settings, which I heard may have the solution to my problem. I only have the Acer Bio Protection, the fingerprint reader, and I tried turning it off there, but to no avail.

HP/Compaq :: BIOS Password Protected

Dec 15, 2009

I got a hold of a Compaq Evo n620c in which the BIOS was password protected. I took out the CMOS battery and had it out over 24 hours in the hopes of reseting the BIOS. No luck. I was able to put in another HDD that had Windows XP installed, tne tried to flash the BIOS. I tried in the HP drivers site and was unable to flash the BIOS. The error read that the BIOS on this machine is password protected. Question is...How can I flash the BIOS or otherwise get rid of the password prompt at BIOS? Is there a generic password to do this or is there another way?
