Having problems with your Sony VAIO Pcg-Z505LE Notebook ?

How Do I Boot A Sony VAIO PCG-Z505LS model # PCG-531A?

\015 Someone gave me this computer, but it doesn't have any drives.\302\240 According to sony's site, it came with a usb floppy drive and the external optical drives were optional, but I don't possess either. \302\240What I am trying to do is boot pcloginnow or chntpw (offline nt password and registry editor) to reset the xp administor password. I do have regular (restricted) user access to windows, though.Also the bios is passworded. \302\240Is there a password jumper or, barring that, a serial chip that can read the bios password much like the ibm thinkpad atmel 24rf08 chip reader? The system uses phoenixbios 4.0 release 6.0.\015

I have the same problem, i reseted the bios password by shorting ic pins. i need a pcmcia cd or floppy adapter to fomat it. no other option did work
The BIOS one can usually be eliminated  by disconnecting the battery and shorting the terminals, if necessary, then plugging the battery back in. \015\012  The administrator pass work can sometimes be gotten around by pressing the F8 while loading,then changing it.\015\012  The most undesirable option is to reformat and buy another OS.\015\012  Sorry for the hard time.
