I'm begining to wonder if these laptop detectors can also detect switched off hanphones?

My car was broken into a few weeks back and the thiefs got away with just my wife's hanphone which was switched off and hidden nothing else, not even coins or smartag was taken.

Vernond,

Your case quite similar to mine. Can you advise location, time and how it happen?

According to the police office, one way is to dismantle the batt. Even digital camera also not spare. Not sure how accurate the info.

NABEH.... this world where got PC/laptop dont have Bios 1 ???

BIOS stand for basic input output system, is no BIOS, how ur os gonna boot up ?? How to boot up HDD ??


just shows how ignorance you are smile.gif ... all Mac are boot by EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface). BIOS is an old technology.

The Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. EFI is a much larger, more complex,[1] OS-like[2]:4 replacement for the older BIOS firmware interface present in all IBM PC-compatible personal computers.[2] The EFI specification was originally developed by Intel, and is now managed by the Unified EFI Forum.

When you unplug your laptop battery, do the time and date change after that? If not, then there's a Cmos battery supporting your Bios.

I dun believe there's any laptop in this world do not need a Bios.


there is smile.gif

Still there's a battery to support the EFI, and it's already considered 10 years old technology. Since 2005, the Unified EFI (UEFI) has take over. Lotsa Intel Dual/Quad Processor mainboard using UEFI. On laptop not so common. smile_sleepy.gif
