    you can have a look at the bios settings but I am pretty sure the disable post screen option was only available for dell desktop models.
    well, look for "post screen" or something like that in the bios settings. thats your only chance...

    Thank you very much for your help and your time.One last question
    Would shorting the eeprom eliminate the screen or any other screen?

    nope, shorting will not remove anything but the password(s).
    there are procedures to change the logo but thats way too complicated and requires alot of knowledge and some 'special' tools.
    so leave the screen as it is because it does no harm!
