Updating bios dell inspiron

I believe the BIOS is therefore the least of your future worries.

I would really advise to go back to a 32bit OS, as a 64bit OS won't have any appreciable advantage on this machine.

Most BIOS updates are only necessary when new hardware is not detected at boot. The first one updated the bios on vista 32bit with no issues.

Computer: Dell Latitude E7250Bios ver: A02I have visitd dell.com/support and downloaded the driver for the latest bio version: A08.

When i try to install it all get is an error message:"You can not install a bios update on a Dell Latitude E7250 whit a update file for a Dell Latitude 7250"The next error message says: "Unsupported file ID"I need help to resolve this issue, i do not have much experience whit this kind of matters so i need all the help i can get.

Therefore, it's not unheard of that a newer BIOS may not work with an older revision of your motherboard's PCB. However I now have my first 1501 running xp 64bit with all drivers (including video) and 8gb of RAM!

There is also no resulting 'performance increase' from a BIOS upgrade, as it has been said, if it ain't broke don't fix it!

How have you installed 64bit Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron 1501?

Dell support only admits to Vista 32bit and XP on this model.

pt=Laptop_Batteries&hash=item35b5fc9671 I highly doubt a bios update will fix this, but you could always try booting without the battery inserted and see if it lets you update that way The battery doesn't need to be charged, it just has to be inserted.

If the circuitry in the battery is bad, that could present a problem. If the motherboard is bad, check with Dell if the system is under warranty.

Dell should have also understood why you can't update the BIOS. I'm not sure if this needs to be pointed out--but put the battery in and plug in the AC adapter when you're updating the BIOS. Somehow the system recognizes the battery is lower than 10% and it won't let me update the BIOS.

If the AC is bad, the laptop would most likely throw up an error at the BIOS load and/or the system wouldn't boot. The system says the battery must be over 10% charged.

If you're out of warranty, the battery is your best place to start.
