model number - svf153b1ym - doesn't appear on your website

I've been having some issues with my laptop so tried to look at the support section of your website. I typed in the model number found on the bottom of my laptop - svf153b1ym - and it doesn't appear. I tried to use the detect my model number and it wouldn't work. I have checked a number of times and this is definitely the number on my laptop.

Hi aneeka22,


Welcome to Sony Community!


I'm sorry to hear that you're having a hard time checking the correct model name of this laptop. The SVF153B1YM is not recognized by our system either. May I know where did you purchase this?


There are several ways to check the model name of the laptop.


1. Vaio Care Desktop - go to "about Vaio"

2. Vaio Control Center - it is at the bottom of the page when you open it up

3. Vaio Care Rescue Mode - Turn off the unit > press ASSIST button> it is located at the bottom part of the page


We kindly recommend visiting our Sony Global Web site for information on contacting the Sony Support Center in your region at


I hope this helps.
