Unable to make changes in BIOS - 01-06-2010, 04:01 AM
I have a Dell Mini 10v (1011) that I purchased new a month ago and currently triple boots Win7, OSX & Linux. It currently has BIOS version A06 on it (after a flash to A05 then back to A06). I am having the same issues as the users of the following threads. The 'problem' being that the only options that are changeable are "Intel (R) SpeedStep(TM) Technology", "On Board Lan Control", ""Set HDD Password", and "Computrace":
I've seen members on here mention that they have turned off USB Legacy Support or Bluetooth from the BIOS menu and I am not able to do that. I've also seen mention that if you can't change these settings that it means that your BIOS is faulty, possibly from the flash.
I called Dell and asked about this but they are saying that on this netbook, only a couple options are user changeable, the rest are factory set. Is this correct? I don't understand how users of the same model computer as me are able to adjust items that I'm not and I can't remember whether or not I was able to change these before the modifications.
Also, does this affect anything other than not being able to disable these things? I discovered this when I was trying to disable USB Legacy Support in an attempt to fix the OSX not waking from sleep issue.
Thanks in advance!
