    That looks like a TPM or bluetooth connector. I'll search more.

    Your SSD connector is M.2. That is an FPC connector.

    For me it looks like the bios chip with a "support!" FPC connector. i could be wrong anyway. :confused:

    Don't connect random stuff to it. Natively this port used to come shipped with an EMI (Electromagnetic-Interference shield) connected to the metal clips on the board, I highly doubt it's a service port.

    To reprogram a borked Sony laptop BIOS you need to re-flash the BIOS IC directly.

    EDIT: Why don't you email Sony with your picture and ask them if you're still unsure?

    That's a good idea to write sony an email even if I think it is a Bluetooth port like you said. Evaluating every stuff is always a good idea I think and I didn't ment to offend some of you guys. I will write sony and post the answer. Thanks for all of your responses.

    Oh, no need to apologise as you've done nothing wrong. I'm not even 100% sure what it is, so writing Sony may prove more helpful.
