    BIOS file

    Thanks for the reply, this procedure works for Sony VAIO?

    I donĀ“t have USB drive, but if procedure works, I buy one.


    The bios file is here:

    The procedure works... Just did it last night on my AR-760U... as long as you have original bios... Otherwise, you can try my AR bios which you can find here

    I believe I managed to fix the bios file you posted to be flashable again.

    Download fixed file here: mediafire.com/?4ayq0iuv2ui07c9

    Download package for Emergency Recovery or DOS based flashing here:

    mediafire.com/?o8js3h762ssfaos

    The package contains everyhting you should need.
    You can try without USB-Floppy first, just using USB Stick. If that fails, get a USB Floppy drive

    Thanks for your help.

    My laptop is dead, no sound, no light leds...

    The procedure
    'Hold down: Fn+B or WinKey+B and while holding plug the computer in to power (do not plug the battery) and pres the power button'
    works in Sony VAIO?
