It's a BIOS setting for sure.

Make sure it is set up correctly and if there is no other way, make sure
you have the latest BIOS.

<DISCLAIMER>

Upgrading the BIOS is dangerous and destructive!

Be careful and follow the instructions for your specific model *to the
letter.*

<DISCLAIMER>

Good luck!

Amichai.
