Flush the bios.. open the laptop and look for a jumper or take out the bios battery if its the same as a pc then it will wipe all bios settings then just set them back when u start up and dont steal any more laptops

start it up with a boot disk. or boot from the CD and do repairs. If your not able to do that its a lock in the BIOS.

Nono, I think you're thinking about the main battery that supplies power to the laptop. We're talking about the little lithium battery mounted on the motherboard...Should be a silver disc, kind of like a watch battery. Just don't void your warranty. :x

they shouldn't care about a proof of purchase, so long as it isn't stolen and you have the identificiaton number under the machine you should be able to call sony support.
