    An apology is in order:o

    I found this thread in the Moderation Control Panel??
    Apparently it was awaiting validation. It is not, nor was it ever policy at TweakTown to practice censorship over new registrations to the forum.

    That said, somehow your post got set aside pending approval. No idea how this occured???
    I just hope that by now your dilemna has been solved, and that whatever ghost in the system caused the error on this end has been resolved as well.

    Again, sorry.

    As you can see, posts aren't supposed to be where this one was, and therefore - nobody looks there.

    I was just being nosy, poking around in the panel and discovered this quite by accident.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    You need to contact your motherboard manufacturer and download the latest bios flash. Flash the bios and then you can overclock:thumb:

    Yes, being OEM the manufacturer of the board has turned all support of the product over to Dell.

    Dimes to doughnuts there is a message on their site to that effect.

    Somebody mentioned a software OC'ing solution before in here, anyone remember that program:?:

    From my experience, compaq, ibm, hp, and dell don't have the adjustments in the bios to do anything. Lots of the boards don't even have an agp slot. They probly don't want the user to mess with any of it, so they exclude the cpu setup part of the bios along with some other stuff.
    I even talked to ibm on the phone about a bios update for one of their grose contraptions and they were not very cooperative. So thats the end of the fun and the realization that "hey I got burned".(just like millions of ppl everyday)

    You got what you paid for.

    How many open drive bays did you expect:laugh:
    Where's the burn:?:
