I know that i have a few older dells and a decent little P4 dell laptop, and the bios features are EXTREMELY lacking. I think most of the reason they do this is so that you'll call them and pay money for them to change something that should *theoretically be as easy as pushing a key, or changing a jumper. I would check online to see if there are any layouts for your motherboard and see if there are any ways to change it via jumpers. Also the next time you buy a computer i STRONGLY recommend that you check with this wonderful forum first, because these good people can probably lead you in the right direction, and get you something very nice for your money.

Isn't it possible to find a BIOS update for his chip that wasnt made by dell so he can change options? Like a smart *** person who hates dell? lol
