I had wondered about where one goes to sign up for Computrace if you wanted it. The answer is http://www.lojackforlaptops.com/products/standard.asp

Q. What happens if the computerâ€™s hard drive is removed?
A. On most our newer, standard Dell and Hewlett-Packard laptops, CompuTrace is embedded into the BIOS. If the hard drive is removed, CompuTrace is persistent and will re-install itself onto any hard drive that is inserted into the PC.
WOW!!! So I guess the only way to get around it after its been enabled is to go back to a earlier version of the BIOS before it was installed/enabled then try to install the newer version again and select it to be deactivated permanently. This is just my guess about it all and I could very well be wrong.

Well, my mini was gone and back in just over a week. They put a new mother board in and its running great. I did update to bios A04, but I am still having that start up resolution problem which everyone says is fixed. Anyone know why this might be?
