I have a cpu (Dell Optiplex) running windows XP Pro that I just saved from the recycle pile. It's not that old and could be a good machine. However, a service takes care of these cpus and makes them so that people can't add anything to the cpus such as more memory or new keyboards or mice. Does anyone know how to unblock something like this? I tried restore factory settings in bios but that didn't work. Please let me know if you can help.

Hi wimtalker, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

In the movie "Cool Hand Luke" there is a famous quote... "What we have here is failure to communicate". And I suspect that is part of what is happening here. :thumbsup:

First, when you refer to a CPU, are you referring to a PC (Personal Computer)?

What service are you referring to?

Adding RAM or making any other physical changes that don't involve changes to the BIOS that the manufacturer may have locked can be made.

Would you please post the model of the computer?
