Where do you see the processor speed jumping around if you can't get into BIOS? Why are you looking for the battery?

I don't think updating BIOS will reset the password. It will probably ask for the password when you try to install it or try to get in the new BIOS, sorry.

I am not really a BIOS update or password recovery expert. Please wait for another member to come along who might be able to help you get your laptop back.

Sorry I can't help you any further.

absolutely no usefull manuals for your system online..not a single one... the vaio site says to call support for instructions on resetting the PW...

i agree with emory that updating the bios would probably not work as it would probably ask you for the password before letting you...
