Supervisory password required
If you set supervisory password to protect your set-up configuration from frequent updates from other users, you may find the set-up configuration being disabled if you do not belong to supervisory account. The supervisory password restricts you from configuring your system if you do not have proper access. If you want to make any changes to set-up configuration, you may need to log in with supervisory account. If you are the supervisor and you have forgotten your password, you may implement some other techniques like removing the battery from your system and holding the power switch pressed for at least twenty seconds. Then reset the battery and restart. This may solve this problem.
BIOS Issues may make set-up configuration disabled
The system configuration may be disabled for BIOS problem too. It’s a very sensitive problem and you must be very careful about everything. Any mistake can damage your computer. So, please be careful. You may not be able to access the system configuration or some options may be disabled or your computer may even stop responding after booting; due to this problem. To solve this issue, first stop your computer, remove the charger from the socket and then remove the battery. After that, press and hold the power switch for at least twenty seconds. This will drain away the power and your system will be set to default. Then reset and restart your computer. If the problem persists, try updating the BIOS. For further problems, please contact the service provider.
Set-up configuration may be disabled due to both hardware and software problems. Sometimes, all your efforts to recover your computer may fail and it is not easy to locate the reason of disturbance. Sometimes, when you enter BIOS, some devices may not be found and their controls may stop responding due to this hardware problem. Again, this may cause the system to stop responding after boot up of the system. Please check that you have no software problem by applying the recovery process and then you can be sure that it is a hardware problem. For this serious issue, please contact the service provider immediately.
