    Still the same thing .... i press them at the same time and nothing configures .... nevertheless , after i took off my battery from the laptop, waiting for 5 minutes and reput it in its place , now the VAIO configuration appears for 5 seconds for the screen to again go into dark mode .

    Any other option ?

    Fown this from another forum....

    ''well I found out something that a lot of people don't know apparently. I called Gateway, and he kept telling me what to do, getting mad thinking I was doing it wrong. All I had to do was tap delete to get their menu up, but whenever I did I got 'no signal' on my screen. After a huge runaround 'yes, my screen is plugged in! when I don't tap it at least something shows up, etc etc...' he gave up and told me to send it in.What I figured out: you can't get into any menus with a graphics card connected. I don't know why I didn't think of it, in hindsight it should have been obvious, at least for someone in the many help forums I went to.
    If you have a similar problem make sure you are using on board graphics (which involves completely disconnecting any other cards manually). Only then can bios come up.''
