Dell Inspiron 7520 :: Why Does BIOS Version A11 Appear On Drivers Download Page

Oct 17, 2012

If you navigate to the drivers' download page for Inspiron 7520, you will notice under "BIOS" that there is a version A11 (released date: October 15, 2012) available for download.However, the small print says "Applies to: Dell Vostro 3560 system BIOS". Is it safe to flash my current BIOS version A04 to A11 for my Inspiron 7520? If not, why is that item listed in the first place?

Dell :: Bios Download

Jul 17, 2009

I recently had a new motherboard installed on my Dell Inspiron 8600 (by local repair guy - not Dell).

I'm doing a clean install of xp pro and downloading the drivers from the Dell website.

I entered my service code to get all the right drivers, but one of the downloads is System Bios A14 (optional). Should I download and install that or not?..

Nov 17, 2007

Just wondering if anyone can provide me with a link to download either one of these BIOS. I'm looking to flash my Quadro 1500 to either one of these to see which one works best for gaming. However I have no source for download. If anyone can provide me with a stable/stock clocked BIOS for either of these I would really appreciate this.

Is it normal for the Dell Inspiron 1420 to run hot?

This is my GF's notebook.

The specs are:

CPU- Intel Core 2 Duo 1.5GHz
OS- Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
HDD- 160GB

It gets almost too hot to touch on the bottom.

Its pretty uncomfortable to use.

Dell :: Wireless-N On Inspiron 1420

Jan 18, 2010

I've searched all over for an solution to this and can't seem to find any straight answers.

I'm trying to upgrade my Inspiron 1420 to wireless-n, but I'm running into some problems. I know that the recommended card is the Intel 4965agn, but that card only uses the 40Mhz band at the 5Ghz frequency (at 2.4Ghz, it only allows 20Mhz).

My router (Linksys WRT-160N) only uses the 2.4Ghz frequency, so if I use the 4965, I would only get 130mbps. I was led to believe that the Intel WiFi Link 5300 would work at both bands on 2.4Ghz, but I just installed it, and it doesn't seem to be compatible with my computer. I get a code 10 (unable to start) error.

So my question is this: Is there a wireless-n card that is compatible with the Inspiron 1420 and that will utilize the 40Mhz band at 2.4Ghz?.

Dell :: Inspiron 1420 Bricked

Oct 30, 2009

I updated the bios on my 1420 from A09 to A10. I downloaded this from Dells support site. The utility runs from within windows and looked like it was working fine. It stated it would shutdown windows then reboot. Well it never rebooted. It is briecked. It gives me two LEDs onthe front and does nothing, no hard drive, no POST beeps.. nothing.

I called Dell and guess what, I'm 18 days past my warrenty. They are not much help.

I've searched for a way to revert back to the last bios but it seems laptop makers don't keep the old version on the chip like desktops do.

I've seen some people have had luch with a USB floopy drive but this is for Mini 9's. I've tried removing the battery and hlding the power button down for 20 secs but it does not start up (didn't think it would).

Does anyone know of anyway to restore the bios? I definately don't want to replace the motherboard.

Dell :: I7 Inspiron 1420 Replacement

Sep 27, 2009

I try to stay up-to-date with new models coming out, and have noticed that Dell is releasing a 17", 16", and 15" model with the new i7 processors. My question is will there be a 13-14" model coming out soon, or is that form factor too small for the new i7 processors? I have an aging Inspiron 1420 I am looking to replace sometime between now and the holiday season, but don't want to be waiting around for something I'm never gonna see.

Dell :: Inspiron 1420 Screen

Mar 7, 2009

My 1420 is suffering from a bad screen problem. There is a horizontal split in my screen so it is showing double.

Also I cannot start up my laptop. It runs the Dell thing then some garbled letters/numbers are everywhere. This problem started when I took off my battery since my notebook was charging.

Afterwards my screen froze, I got the BSOD and when I rebooted I was stuck with this problem.

Dell :: Inspiron 1420 Display

Apr 6, 2009

I removed everything - but in the process - the camera board - located behind the bezel - broke. I figured that the screen should still work - until a camera can be bought - but it does not. It lights up a bit: dim black - but it will not show a picture.

Do any of yo know - if there could be another cause: cables not not plugged in right - etc? I just don't see how the camera board could be the cause since it's just an extra device.

There are two white and black connectors - under the keyboard - that are part of the lid - which I plugged in. There's also the power plug for the screen (also under the keyboard) and that's plugged in. The only thing I can think of is the camera board. Let me know if I'm missing something - though - because - if so - I'll just do something to fix it now.

I did some searches and found very old posts pertaining to bluetooth issues...

Whenever I start Windows from Stand By or Sleep the bluetooth connection is hit or miss...If my bluetooth mouse does not work I go to device manager where my Dell Truemobile 355 + EDR has issues and if I shut it down/start it up it works fine.

How can I fix this, its frustrating going into device manager every other time I start up my laptop!

Dell :: Inspiron 1420 Fan & CPU Speed Under XPSP3

Feb 15, 2009

I've downgraded my Inspiron 1420 recently to XP SP3 with all the device drivers properly installed. Everything seems works fine except that I found fan1 & fan2 always on at max. high speed (very noisy) and CPU always max. at 1.5GHz (seems lost SpeedStep control, checked enabled in BIOS, with SpeedStep control cpu speed should drop to lower rate while the notebook is idle), the fans and cpu speed status are checked via the utility program I8KFANGUI.

If I enabled automatically temperature control in I8KFANGUI then fan1 can turn off as cpu cool down to below 55c and only turn on at Low speed at 60c (still very quiet, noise no noticeable) but still fan2 is always high at 4XX RPM constant rate, I8KFANGUI in fact reported fan2 is not controllable even for just turn on and off .....

Dell :: Inspiron 1420 Display Or Video

Sep 22, 2008

i turned on my laptop and the screen had a horizontal line splitting into mirror images. it also has monochromatic horizontal lines all over the display. sometimes it will boot windows, sometimes it wont. i get an error saying windows cannot start do i want to start windows repair. it usually doesn't work and i end up going with the factory image restore.

i've gotten back to running windows and i've updated drivers, updated the bios, and nothing seems to stick. i've had it working perfectly (perfect display on the screen), but it seems after i did a windows update and it rebooted that it stopped working again. split screen, lines, the works.

i took apart the lcd screen to ensure all the cables were attached and they seem to be ok. i hooked it up to an external monitor and i didn't get the split screen mirror image, but i did get the monochromatic horizontal lines over the display. i can still use windows and the internet and everything.. it's just really hard on the eyes.

also, if it's the video card i know that most are integrated into the motherboard. mine is the nvidia geforce 8400m gs.. please tell me i can replace these independently.

I just bought a Dell Inspiron 1420 from my first impression was, this is a great laptop..

Due to some problem with its internal wireless device, I decide to buy a DLink DWL-AG660 wireless cardbus adapter from the net..

When the card arrived, I try to install it & unfortunately, it cant fit in...I google the net & just found out that the AG660 is using a 32 bit pcmcia card bus adapter & my inspiron 1420 is equipped with (maybe) an express card slot..

Dell :: Studio 1535 Vs. Inspiron 1420

May 10, 2009

After getting fed up with my Studio 1535, I sold it and purchased an Inspiron 1420 from Dell Outlet. I sold the

Studio 15 for $445 and purchased the Inspiron 1420 for $467. I got 15% off and free shipping, so that saved me quite a bit of money. Below are my thoughts on the Inspiron 1420 vs. the Studio 1535.

Inspiron 1420 Pros (As opposed to the 1535)

-It is very lightweight. The Studio 15 was a little heavier than I wanted for carrying around at school. I carried it in a messenger bag which started to hurt my shoulder after awhile. The Inspiron 1420 is the perfect weight for school ....
