I will check...but the keyboard problem makes it almost impossible to change anything in the BIOS.
As I said the BIOS instructions at the bottom of the screen say "Press Enter" to change configurations...
but the "Enter" key doesn't do that...I have to press the keypad plus key. Then it seems I can't toggle
or change anything.
It's wierd because as I first posted, the arrow keys skip entries on the Grub2 menu...and I have this
BIOS problem as well. At one point I upgraded the BIOS using Dell software, but that didn't change anything.
I am really beginning to sujspect it's some sort of incompatability between Dell's BIOS and the HP keyboard.
I asked basically the same questions on Fedora's user list but got nowhere.
