    What's locked for you? I don't understand what you said. Can you get into BIOS ?

    Also how did you get along with this?

    Oh is that all..

    Oh well, I'd say ask Dell to also help you with that as well ;)
    You say they have changed 2 Motherboards, and they presently have it....or something :confused:

    Yes I'd like to know more about this "something else" issue. You don't think it may be related at all?

    I noticed that you read your manual already too, it didn't discuss Ram MHz, or you just missed it?

    Edit:
    Maybe you could post back on your other Topic as well
    I think member Ronell :rolleyes: and others there, want to know the outcome
    Obviously your computer's back from its 3rd (?) Mobo change?
    I think this "something else" is directly related, and if not, you should also tell Dell that you have these other issues, oh they would bound to get you a new laptop, since yours is only a few months old (how strange)
