Updating bios sony vaio
)Now I don't even know if your kind reply with interesting methods could work or not on my vaio :( if I had a chance to adjust it, stupid Sony VAIO assistance took this away. They should have returned to you in exact same working or non-working order you sent it to them in, not worse (ie no LED lights coming on now)Ciao Lost, the place where I sent the VAIO is the official SONY assistance place in Italy.I have bought the vaio online years ago through the assembling program on vaio webspace.All seems ok but when I try to turn it on, the green led doesn't come on.Before I sent this to the assistance, as I said in my first post, only the green led was wokring.I want to briefly tell you my story and see if there is anything we can do :( to say I'm desperate is says nothing I have a Sony Vaio 13 pro model SVP1321C5EI have tried to flash the bios installing the modified ROM file in order to make the notebook recognize the new Samsung SSD M.2 970EVO 500GB and I have tried to follow the @pcfist at the page to this link I have succesfully downloaded the BIOS and modified it into a new file ROM as the post says but when I tried to flash it (using AFUWINGUI Aptio4) I have got an error as the BIOS, I guess, is locked (see the picture below)Then what I did?
I truly hope they dind't damaged the chips around that. Show that BIOS chip/board image to Sony, and this thread too if you want!
I have pointed out about the wrong BIOS update just to help them understanding the problem.
They said something in the mainboard is gone, we have to replace it entirely and the cost was over 1K euro.
This SSD fits perfectly into the module and is perfectly recognized if I try to install Windows 10, I think it's just the BIOS that is giving me hard time.
Thank you again and deeply sorry if this is not the right way to introduce myself in this community. Sounds like your BIOS modifications were possibly not good, or it could be due to something in that flasher/method used.You'll have to find local shop to clean it up and reflow, or friend.
