hi, I know you are quite busy. Can you please explain the process? I tried to access the BIOS by pressing the function keys but it's not granting me access. Am I doing something wrong?

It happened to me. The guys I bought mine from at Computer Village are men of integrity. I was able to get a replacement which I have been for 3 years now.

Seems like it has CompuTrace technology enabled. You can return it to the dealer if it is still within warranty period.

Does the notification appear in Windows or before windows loads?

I rectified the problem. Lucky enough that it was locked with bitlocker and not intel anti theft. I was able to format the hard disk.

It has gone back to the problem. I feel it was embedded into the system.
