Using the System Setup Program
NOTE: Your operating system may automatically configure most of the options available in the
system setup program, thus overriding options that you set through the system setup program.
For more information on configuring features for your operating system, see the Help and
Support Center. To access help, see page 80.
The system setup screens display the current setup information and settings for your
computer, such as:
• System configuration
• Boot (start-up) configuration and docking-device configuration settings
• Basic device configuration settings
• System security and hard-drive password settings
NOTICE: Unless you are an expert computer user or are directed to do so by Dell technical
support, do not change the settings for the system setup program. Certain changes might make
your computer work incorrectly.
