Question about Dell XPS M1730 Laptop
I'm running Windows XP Home Edition and have lost all ability to change
my power options / power schemes. When I go to control panel - Power
Options Properties the drop down box under Power Schemes just shows
'blank' as well as the I cannot access any settings under the next
heading 'Unknown' ie When computer is: Plugged in ... Running on Batteries.
Any ideas on how I could reinstall this or fix the problem would be greatly appreciated!
It sounds like your BIOS is set to non-PnP.
There is a setting that is a choice of Plug and Play or non-Plug and Play in the board options of the BIOS of most PCs made after 1995.
If that is not the issue, go to Dell and download their updates and drivers (there is an urgent update in the 'System Utilities' sub folder).
