i mean i could, but look how densely packed this thing is. 【レポート】VAIO type Pの中身はどうなっている? -注目のミニノートを徹底分解する! (2) type Pの「薄さ」と「ファンレス」の秘密 | パソコン | マイコミジャーナル

if it was a normal laptop that i hadn't just bought a couple of days ago i'd probably go for it. plus i got this warranty that'll get voided if i open it.

I was looking for that. I followed a link and it led me to a fake search page. I guess it was because it's .org not .com.

Don't know if this works on all models or not...

Try entering \ just a simple backslash for the password. On some older laptops this would reset the admin password giving you BIOS access...

EDIT... I see after posting this, you got it... excellent.

In future... don't be putting passwords into a system until it's stable and trusted.

Sony VAIO OneTime Password

Hello,

I had the same problem with my Sony VAIO VGN-P29VN. I haven't used it for a long time and then forgot the password (which I set by myself!). So I disassembled the whole thing and removed the battery for some hours. The battery is indeed that black thing connected with two cables (black and red) as seen on this picture:

http://j.mycom.jp/articles/2009/02/1...mages/020l.jpg

But, as logicearth already said, this procedure did not reset the password. After I reconnected the battery and assempled the VAIO again, the password was still set.

I bought this thing used so I don't think that there would be any support by manufacturer any longer. Has anybody an idea what to do? If a wrong password is entered three times there is asked for an "OneTime Password" and some kind of key is diplayed (in a format like this: xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx). Is there ANYWHERE a key generator available which could generate this required password? If it is entered correctly, the BIOS password would be reset.

Thanks for any answer.

Greetings from Germany
