How do I go to Bios Sony Vaio and exit it correctly?

The fact that Sony Corporation is one of the leadingmanufacturers of computer or mobile equipment, no one, probably, should not explain. True, sometimes she throws out such "surprises" that a person unprepared obviously has a lot of hours to rack his brains before figuring out what's what. In particular, it concerns noutubks. Many of their "happy" owners completely do not understand how to go into the BIOS of Sony Vaio. Well, if this is the case, let's try to deal with this rather interesting and complex issue.

How to go into Sony Vaio BIOS: "charms" and whims

Let's start a little from afar. Many computer programmers, to be honest, still do not understand why the specialists of the corporation, as they say, on an equal footing complicate the life of users. First of all, this concerns the installation of hard drives in their "advanced" laptops, which obviously do not correspond to the capabilities of the computer system as a whole. They also have a rotational speed of 5400 rpm.

And this is not the only example. The same goes for the problem of how to enter the BIOS of Sony Vaio. Alas, many users complain that the standard pressing of the Del key, as is customary in most computer systems, leads to nothing. Unsurprisingly, any manufacturer of technology of this type, depending on the motherboard, establishes its own rules for the use of sequencing access to the subsystem. But in Sony Vaio, the input to the BIOS is a problem that is not so much complicated as it is original and even contrived (a little later it will be clear why).

In addition, the principles of access to the subsystem ydifferent models differ strongly enough. Something does not believe that this is due solely to the "motherboards". Nevertheless, in Sony Vaio you can go to BIOS in several ways, and one of them does not fit into the notion of common sense. But let's try to consider all available options, so to speak, from a general point of view.

Standard login method

So, on almost all known laptops,including obsolete Sony Vaio models, entry into the subsystem is done by pressing F2, F3 or by pressing them together with Del. Speaking about the products of this manufacturer, you can get into BIOS on a Sony Vaio laptop only if you press the corresponding key several times.

Sometimes it happens that both are intended forfunction keys: and F2, and F3. Some try to press one of them several times, but the result is zero. Here you need to try them in turn, because sometimes the system just does not have time to intercept the signal from the keyboard. But on this "surprises" are not injected.

Alternate logon method

If you understand how to go to the BIOS of Sony Vaio inwith respect to new modifications, again, depending on the model, an alternative may be envisaged here. It also includes the use of two function keys, although in this case it's F8 and F12.

The situation repeats itself: To use it is necessary not one key, and to press them one by one, and on some times. And it needs to be done very quickly (as soon as information on the system appears on the screen). The very process of displaying data lasts only about a second, and not all users have time to notice what it is necessary to press or what actions to perform in order to get into the subsystem and adjust something there.

Special key

Finally, the most original solution. It happens that the user has tried almost all possible combinations. Nothing helps. Here you need to take into account one small nuance, which refers to modern modifications of laptops. The fact is that the new models feature a non-standard keyboard. Almost none of the users pay attention to this. But in vain. The keyboard has many incomprehensible ASSIST key. That's where the dog is buried!

It is she who is responsible for entering the BIOS, or rather, evennot in BIOS, but in the so-called "Rescue Menu". It goes without saying that to achieve the desired effect, it must also be pressed several times. But after the signal is triggered for literally two seconds, the screen will display the desired menu with options for selecting actions.

How do I access the Sony Vaio BIOS from this menu? Yes, very simple - press the F2 key. And, oh, a miracle! The subsystem's settings have finally become available. Now you can safely start working with the basic parameters.

The output from the subsystem is carried out by the classicalway: either through the menu with the Save & Exit Setup line, or by pressing the F10 key (well, at least you did not manage to do it, otherwise the user, worn out while searching for the solution to the input, would still be puzzling how to get out of here).

Sony Vaio: how to launch BIOS if standard methods do not work

However, in the line of Sony Vaio laptops there are rare exceptions, when none of the above methods works. What to do?

First, if the laptop is bought officially,you should see the accompanying set of technical documentation or the user's manual. As a rule, there you can find a whole section devoted to the entrance to the BIOS. Secondly, in Windows, in the system information section, you can find out the BIOS version and look for a description of the input to it. Thirdly, in the same section, you should look at the marking of the motherboard and try to apply the search for a solution to the problem (entering the BIOS) already by these parameters. Needless to say, the search engines can be set and a complete abbreviation for the modification of the laptop itself, but this in most cases does not help much.


In general, as is already clear, with Sony Vaio notebooksnot so simple. As they say, the door to the entrance seems to be, but that's where it is located, no one knows. By the way, about such an incident from the corporation Sony is still not quit disputes. After all, even from a logical point of view, it is completely unclear why it was necessary to take such an intricate decision, and not to use standard, generally accepted methods. It's like that, despite the simplest and shortest way, deliberately go around, complicating your own task.
