Tweak? Yeah, I guess this qualifies.

Was having a problem with my laptop sound after installing Ultimate Edition 2.0: sound was working but only had the right channel no matter what I tried. Here's where the tweak comes in. Pulseaudio and ALSA were both installed by default and apparently my system was confused ... I certainly was. Whether or not Pulseaudio was the problem, I uninstalled it and reinstalled all the appropriate ALSA stuff. After this, all was as it should be ...

Hi, I'm also creating a new thread on my following question, but thought since it was mentioned, maybe you could help?

I have a Dell Precision M2400 laptop with the bio-metric fingerprint lock. I'm not familiar with this security, but is there a way to bypass this while it's locked. I don't care about the contents of the HDD, I just wanna wipe and do fresh install anyways, but I can't. Settings won't let me into bios, OS, won't boot from disc, LAN or USB. Bios jumper/battery doesn't work since it's a separate system pre-bios. The laptop isn't stolen, but don't have enough info for Dell to give a generated unlock code. Thanks

Negative. Goes straight to biometric screen even when any displayed F key option is pressed. No access to bios or OS
