To reset your bios password, you need to disassemble the laptop and pull the motherboard battery out for a minute or two. Sorry, can't direct you how to do that. Best to go to the manufactures site and look for a maintenance manual download.

You will get this...
i noticed the hard disk so i removed it and plugged it into my usb case and reformatted the hard disk
put it back into sony and it says no operating system found
When you format a hard drive, you wipe the OS, so what you ended up with is not unexpected.
As I stated, you need search the web for a maual. What kind of laptop is it??

when u mean move them over u mean from the factory restore discs or after i installed 98 fully onto pc. i tried opening the factory discs all files are cab files i think these are compressed. so how do i copy the setup file over to my usb harddrive. thanks
The folder with the cab files is usually named win98, you copy the entire folder and all it's contents to the hard drive, after you've formatted the drive with the install system files option. When you've done all that correctly the drive will boot to a command prompt. At the prompt type in C:\win98\setup and hit enter. The setup process will begin, follow all the prompts.

Are you still needing to clear the CMOS on your VAIO PCG-F400? If so, I have good news for you.
I've just managed to do it on mine. There is a backup battery consisting of a pair of button cells in
heatshrink. The battery is located right at the front of the machine, close to where the lid lock is. It is
not connected directly to the motherboard, but to a small daughterboard underneath the trackpad.
If you've not taken your machine to pieces before, get back to me, and I'll send you some photos of
how to do it.
In any case, let me know how you get on :-)
