I just got myself a Viao last week and it came loaded with a whole ton of bloatware. As I have done with any other computer I've had, I did a fresh install of Windows and I'm slowly reinstalling everything. Sadly, Sony is cheap and included nothing with the laptop but a box and a 'quick guide' so everything is online. I have installed all the online software minus the bloatware garbage.
Just this morning I came across a pop up that occurs every three seconds telling my my battery is not installed correctly or is incompatable and has forced me to use my portable computer without a battery.
I'm 100% sure there is nothing wrong with the battery because it was working just fine for the last two weeks and this problem has only occured today. After a bit of research I learned that the clean install may have affected my BIOS. There is no available BIOS in the Sony software package for my computer online.
Model number: VPCYB13KD (Canada)
BIOS: InsydeH2O R0160Z7
I was wondering if anyone knew where to find the correct BIOS for this laptop or if there is a different way to fix my problem.
