Sony Vaio FX-410 BIOS Password

\015 I have been going through the worst time trying to find a decent soulution to finding away around the BIOS password on the Sony Vaio FX-410 that I recently bought at a yard sale. I have tried taking out the CMOS battery for as long as a week, I have tried the reset button on the bottom of the laptop, I cannot find any "jumpers" on the motherboard that are supposed to reset the BIOS to factory defaults, I have tried calling Sony for the master password but they have terrible customer service, and I have tried a list of reported master passwords. The motherboard model is "Phoenix 4.0 release 6.0". Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.\015

Answers :

If you are unsure of where to short out the battery contacts, just remove the battery and leave the battery out for 1/2+ hours or more, and the insert the battery again and the BIOS will be reset to the default settings.

\015\012Leaving the battery out has the same result as shorting shorting the contacts except you can insert the battery straight away instead of waiting 1/2+ hours for the same result.
NO click and no spark,no shock. Only very low voltage. Their is only two contacts points on the battery holder one for the center of the battery and one for the side. Touch the paper clip to the two points.
