Alert! Dell question

I have a question for any DeLL users. I get a message prior to BIOS bootup when I reboot or freshboot saying "ALERT! The cover has been opened" or something like that. I know it was opened. I opened it to add RAM. Anyone know how to get rid of this message?

thanks

Yea, thats a feature designed for businesses/schools. It can be disabled in the BIOS. It was deisgned to prevent tampering. The Dells at my school lock with the CMOS password if you open them. Keeps students from messing them up. That can also be enbled/disabled via the BIOS.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
