BIOS ????

I have a customer who has 3 Dell Latitude CPx machines.  He says that in the BIOS
Boot order screen that "configuration is disabled"  I cannot find a setting for him to change this to enable the configuration of the  boot order. Any help would be gy appreciated.  Thanks,

Compucharley

ps The BIOS is a Phoenix A12

Did you try to perform these instructions?  If not, is the customer good at following instructions?

The significance of Callandors article is that it gives you a possible workaround to your issue.  If you can boot from CD using that link then your BIOS is functioning at least, but the options are disable for some reason.

The computers had a BIOS password enabled.  I called Dell and got the Master passwords from the corporation we bought them from.  Thanks for your help.
