Here is a google RESULT

From the looks of it, if it is infact the BIOS password, you will have to do exactly what Gizmo said or else remove and resolder a new security chip. B/C newer VAIO seem to use security chips and the battery option will probably not work for you. New chip around 100$. Sony Support probably free. Your choice....

Also, it is a phoenix bios i believe. Long long shot, especially on newer laptops, but could try using the password pheonix

Sony VAIO laptops are not setup that way. All you will do is lose your configuration settings.

is it possible to replace say the motherboard, to by-pass the p/w, or replace the bios chip?
