I need to replace the cooling fan on my dell inspiron b120 but I have one question.... do I need to do any programming after I'm done with the job? or I just need to turn on my pc and its going to start working like always?
I need to take everything apart to get to the cooling fan, that includes, taking the hard drive off, the keyboard, speakers, dvd room...
I currently have an Inspiron B120 (15.4" body) that has a 14.1" screen that I'd like to replace with a 15.4" WUXGA screen. Will there be any compatibility issues? Other than buying a 15.4" bezel, is there anything else that would be needed?
I recently purchased a Dell B120 used in ebay. Laptop worked great on AC adapter, but battery showed 1% on battery indicator and would not work. I ordered a non-dell replacement from a company on ebay. Battery came in and had 94% when installed. Just to check I unplugged AC adapter.
Laptop seems to work properly for the few seconds I checked. I then replaced AC adapter cord and allowed battery to charge overnight. Next morning I powered up laptop and checked battery power.
Laptop showed 100%, so I pulled AC adapter plug. Boom, nothing, no power. I have tried everything to get this battery to work. Bios sees battery and shows no battery when removed.
Bios we upgraded to latest dell upgrade A08. Battery info in bios says battery performing normal. shows 100% but no power .....
Maybe what I write sound something repetitive BUT I am looking for a fix. I have tried to unbrick my laptop with the bootable USB flash with my correct A06 BIOS.WPH file extracted from 1564_A06.exe. After plugging in the Power cord and after releasing the END key that I hold for 3 seconds, fan starts spinning BUT there is no light on Power LED and it stays dead with fan spinning. I left the laptop for almost 30 minutes but didn't see anything happening....
When I restarted I got a blue screen saying "memory parity error". I restarted again the blue screen was gone, and it tells me a NIC adapter is having problems,
and asks me to press (S) to shut it off. When I tried pressing 'S' it didn't respond (more like it froze), so I restarted again.
This time I can finally boot into windows. But now my 'new hardware found' wizard went berserk, and kept on telling me there is new hardware found, non-stop. I had a look at my Device Manager and noticed the following had exclamation marks on it:
Model: Inspiron 17R Special Edition Inspiron 17R Notebook (Inspiron 7720), Windows 8, 64-bit,English
My laptop was installing updates (not sure which updates) when the battery suddenly died. I charged it and ever since every time I turn it on, it gives me an error message and I'm unable to log into my system
error message is: BAD_SYS-CONF_INFO
I've tried accessing the BIOS with F2 button upon start up many times to check the settings but no luck. Pressing F2 constantly right when the Dell logo appears does absolutely nothing. get back into Windows without reinstalling and losing everything
I recently downloaded A06 version of the Dell Inspiron 15r 5521 bios, and I was wondering if (and how) it is possible to change the fan speeds and temperatures for my system. I can't find any option for this.
I've been expecting a problem recently; when I turn off/restart my Inspiron 7720 and I press F2 to load the BIOS, I notice the bar fills but it continues and loads windows normally. I tried updating the BIOS from A10 to the newest A12. If i press F12 for boot options it works fine, it's only when I press F2 for the BIOS.
I have downloaded the current BIOS for the N5110 to upgrade for a Windows 8 upgrade. However, this may sound rather trite but I cannot find any explicit instructions on how to perform the BIOS update. even pointing me to a process procedure that has been written to follow.
The date-time is not holding which indicates replace the 'coin cell' or BIOS battery. I have looked online and everywhere says it is under the keyboard but I HAVE THE KEYBOARD OFF AND I DONT SEE IT. Where the bios battery on the Dell inspirion 9100 is located?
I have a friend whose father owned an Inspiron 15 - 3521 and died several months ago. Another friend of his tried to unlock the user password and somehow ended up screwing it up more, so now it boots asking for a BIOS password that no one has access too. He doesn't have the receipt for the computer, because his dead father was the owner but he does have the box. Its warranty is expired as well, but I was wondering if having the box was enough for Dell to generate a BIOS bypass or what other options are available.
The SW on my bios is A06. I downloaded the A13 ( the windows executable ) and ran it as admin. A windows poped up warning that the pc would reboot after completion. I click on Flash, a CLI poped up, done a few things and showed a success message. But when I go into the BIOS, it's still ver A06. By the way my os is Win 7 x64 ....
Because I had a minor problem with my laptop (since a couple of weeks it was always starting up in manufacturing mode) I decided to update my BIOS.So I downloaded the BIOS-update A19 (currently I was running A11) and followed the instructions to install it (power plugged in, shut down all applications, removed all peripherals).
Everything seemed to go fine: the computer restarted, came in BIOS and did all update tasks, but then at the point that normally Windows should start. I got stuck on a black screen and my fan blew at maximum speed.I left it running for about 5 minutes in the hope it would come back but it didn't. So I decided to try to shut down the system. This was not possible by holding down the power button. The only way was removing the power cord and battery.But after this incident my laptop is completely death. Does this mean the motherboard is completely wasted?Because I’m out of warranty it is not even possible to open a support request for it on the Dell support site.
getting the password for a Dell N5110. A friend of mine was having display problems so we tried resetting factory defaults and now we are completely locked out of using the computer.I read on some previous posts of DELL users saying message me the details, with proof of ownership however the posts were a little dated, is this still a viable option, and in which case who do I need to message?
