  1. Settings on my computer are locked


    Basically what my issue is is that options that should normally be toggleable are grayed out and locked. I am the administrator of the computer, but there is no way for me to fix this as of now. Though most of the things that are locked don't handicap me from doing anything I'd normally do on my computer, the first thing that this issue appeared on is.


    I'm currently using a laptop instead of my desktop, but I don't use the touchpad nor the keyboard because I'm more comfortable with a regular mouse and the keyboard has a special "Fn" key for functions on the computer (brightness, media playback, screen lock, etc). The device has a unique application integrated into it called PalmCheck which, in conjunction with the touchpad, locks the mouse for 1 second if you're typing. The purpose of this is to avoid accidentally tapping the touchpad while typing and screwing up what you're typing.


    However this has no purpose for me since as I said I don't use the keyboard or touchpad. This wouldn't bother me if it weren't for the fact that this is counter productive towards what I do on a normal basis: play video games. The basic controls being almost EVERY SINGLE KEY ON THE KEYBOARD, you're mouse is basically locked at all times which hinders my game.


    I used to be able to go into advanced settings and disable PalmCheck, but it suddenly became locked and I haven't had any way to turn it off other than restarting my computer. Then I have to wait for a 30 second bootup sequence and then wait about 5 minutes for every application on my computer to slowly boot up.


    This gets annoying really quick. Below are some examples of what the issue looks like. If anyone has a solution please feel free to share it with me. I've tried everything and I have no clue what to do at this point...

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
