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?

Dell :: S2009W Display With Inspiron B120

Apr 30, 2009

I am trying to use the Dell s2009W display with an old Dell inspiron b120 laptop. But I can't get the max resolution of 1600x900 to show as option in the display settings dialogue.

I previously used this laptop with another Dell display that had, I believe, an even larger resoultion, but certainly larger than 1280x768. There were no problems there.

Dell :: Inspiron B120 With Loud Fanfix? Abandon? Ignore?

Sep 13, 2009

I'm helping a friend with an Inspiron B120 with a loud fan. Its not _terribly_ loud, but it does sound tired and like its trying harder than it should need to.

Is this something to be concerned with? Is it a common problem? How difficult is it to replace the fan?

Dell :: Replacing Screen In A B120

Aug 24, 2009

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?

Dell :: No Battery Power On B120

Oct 18, 2009

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 .....

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 BIOS

Jan 31, 2010

So according to Dell's Support page the latest BIOS for the Inspiron 1520 is A09 http://support.dell.com/support/down...g=EN&TabIndex=

However when I go to the support page via my Inspiron 1520's Service Tag it does not show that BIOS update, infact no BIOS update is shown at all. Currently I have BIOS Version A03.

Dell :: Inspiron 1564 BIOS Corrupted

Mar 29, 2010

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....

Dell ::Inspiron 6000, Can't Boot BIOS,

Jan 13, 2009

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:

-OHCI compliant IEEE 1394 host controller
-intel pro/wireless 2915abg network connection

-Ricoh R/RL/5c476(II) or compatible cardbus controller
-SDA standard compliant SD host controlle .....

Dell Inspiron 7000 :: Won't Boot - Bad BIOS?

May 17, 2004

My Inspirion 7000 will not boot and won't enter bios setup. I  turned on mode to reduce cpu usage, and to show startup on screen. Next thing I know it won't boot.

If I press f2 early during what should be the post testing it says "entering setup" at the bottom of the screen. It hangs right there and goes no further.

I've pulled the hd, cd/floppy, battery, tried everthing suggested from another user I found who had the exact same problem.

[URL] ....

I've tried to boot several different ways. It always hangs there at the 'entering setup' - won't boot from floppy or cd.

This laptop has worked without a problem for years. Running Win98se

Is there anyway to "reset" the bios when bios itself cannot be loaded?

Dell :: Inspiron 1000 Bios Password Locked....

Aug 4, 2009

Everytime I boot up the laptop, I get halted with the blue box asking me for the bios password.

I know this laptop is quite different and that even removing the cmos battery for like a day is not going to help. There is no 24xxx chip that I can short on the mobo.

Then I found SST39VF040 bios chip on the back of the mobo and also found a 93lc86 bios chip too .....

Dell Inspiron 3521 :: BIOS Password Lockout

Jan 19, 2015

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.

Dell Inspiron L702X :: Won't Start After Bios Updated To A19

Nov 19, 2014

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.

Dell :: BIOS Hack To Enable Intel VT And/or AHCI On Inspiron

Nov 20, 2009

when I got my 9400/E1705 I was always sad for not having the AHCI option available in the BIOS.

This was asked for so many times:

- "Notebooks BIOS should support AHCI"
[url]

- "Enable AHCI in Dell Notebook BIOS"
[url]

- "Please give us BIOS support for SATA AHCI mode on Inspirons!"
Please give us BIOS support for SATA AHCI mode on Inspirons!

- "Give us real bios control"
[url]

- "Bios release"
[url]

In the Sony forum, they have found a way to activate these options even if they're not present in the BIOS:

How to Enable Intel VT and AHCI on a Napa/Santa Rosa platform Phoenix BIOS Vaio laptop
...
The only item you'll need is a bootable DOS media. Click one of these links for instruction for creating a bootable floppy disk (with USB floppy drive) or usb stick.USB flash1 or USB flash2 or CDR (add modified table file to image before writing).
Instructions:

1.Download symcmos and copy it to your bootable DOS media. This utility is used to modify your Phoenix BIOS settings. Also, download a DOS text editor and copy it to the media if you feel comfortable editing a file in DOS.

2.Go to the BIOS by pressing F2 during start-up, or when the VAIO logo appears, and reset the settings to factory default. Save and reboot.

3.Go back to the BIOS and enable the boot from external devices option. Save and reboot.

4.Press ESC when the VAIO logo appears to bring up the boot selection menu and select the bootable DOS media. At the prompt, type "symcmos -v2 -lDefault.txt", without quotes, and note that there's no space in between the flag and filename. This will create a literal symbol table from the NVRAM named Default.txt which contains all the current BIOS settings. Reboot by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del. If that doesn't work, hold the power button until the notebook turns off.

5.Use the DOS text editor (or boot to another OS and use a text editor there) to edit the generated Default.txt file. Change the following lines and save the modified file to something else (e.g. modified.txt):

For Napa SZs - R0112N0

AHCI: (015C) [0000] ---> (015C) [0001]

VT-x: (0354) [0000] ---> (0354) [0001]...

Dell :: Inspiron E1705/9400 BIOS Update This Month

Dec 5, 2009

It's been over two years since the last update, but Dell finally released a patch for the faulty nVidia graphics chips to help delay failure. That's the only fix listed in the A10 release. I wanted to let everyone know that if you have an nVidia graphics card in your E1705 or any other laptop from 2006-2008 you should check for the latest BIOS update because these cards have faulty thermal design that causes overheating and failure. The symptoms are odd colored pixels, video flickering, rebooting and system crashes, program crashes, odd lines on screen, etc - once you start to exerience this it's already too late, your chip is damaged and needs to be replaced. Likely, at this point, every system out there is probably already experiencing some form of failure so to be safe, if you're still under warranty, I'd use it to get a new card as soon as you can and apply this BIOS update. Anyway, you can find the BIOS update here:

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 Replacement Board Can I Downgrade The Bios?

this is my first post so a quick hi to all of you and thankyou for many solutions in the past which have spanned from this forum.

Well i have had to bite the bullet and register so i can ask you guys for help...the story goes...

Ok i receive a laptop Dell Inspiron 9300 from a friend who has dropped it (well he says the kid knocked it off the couch and then to add insult to injury he followed it over and landed on it) well needless to say i diagnosed that the motherboard had failed as i ran the system from a barbones state to rule out any hardware failures. So i ordered a replacement board from the big old bad Ebay guy that hangs around the internet...So i rebuild the laptop plug it all in and turn it on.. so far so good i see the Dell logo and select to enter the bios to which i see "entering setup"... now instead of going into the setup i receive only this...
"The ac power adapter cannot be determined. The system can only boot with a 130w power adapter or greater" .....

Dell Inspiron 6000 :: Bios Password - Reset Or Remove It

Mar 22, 2013

I have an Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop that has a Bios Password Set on it... and the password is not correct that we thought was the one for the laptop....  The password authentication system wont boot the laptop up until we enter the correct password... I have tried all the combinations that we thought the password is or was, but have not had any luck --- that being said the laptop is registered to me/ owned by me --- Can I provide the computer system tag -- that is shown on the screen and getting a reset password to overcome this obstacle.... The service tag is in my profile information and the computer system tag on the laptop bios password sign in screen is B*B*H*1-595B... I intentionally put the three * in the info, so I wouldn't compromise the service tag for my laptop for the world to see and use..

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Battery Is Marked As IDLE In BIOS

Dec 5, 2012

A few days ago, on my Inspiron 1545, my power adapter stopped working.

I started using an identical Dell adapter (exact same model PA-3E) to supply power to the laptop, power was working fine, but the battery would not charge.  The battery is at 0%.

In BIOS the adapter is recognised as the correct 90W adapter  but the battery is marked as "IDLE".

I have run Dell diagnostics and that says the battery is healthy, how can that be if it wont charge.

Dell Inspiron 17R :: Cannot Access BIOS Or Boot Order During POST

Jan 3, 2013

What I Was Doing:

All I wanted to do was install an SSD (SanDisk Extreme 240GB) as my primary drive using factory recovery created from Dell Backup and Recovery/Recovery Media from USB drive.... I was trying to update firmware on the SSD. It requires a download and the creation of a thumb drive to which one boots after adding it in the BIOS. Ever since I tried using that thumb drive during boot (on power up it was in a USB slot with the intention of opening BIOS and setting that thumb drive as a boot device to complete firmware update) things have been a mess.

The Problems:

I have run into a situation where no matter what key I press during startup, it has no impact on the startup. Main problem is that F2 will not open BIOS. F12 does not show Boot Order.

 Here are the symptoms:

Cannot access BIOS or Boot Order during POST All partitions on the factory 1TB hard drive now show in Windows File Explorer whereas previously only the partition labeled C: OS was shown

Potentially Stupid Things I Tried:

I discovered that if there are no hard drives installed, the system will boot to a DOS-type screen with options for Boot Order (with no drives it lists only Network Boot), Setup, Diagnostics, and Boot Configuration.

Setup takes me to the BIOS (vA11) but obviously with no drives showing Diagnostics takes to me to a test suite which when run gives me an error on the video memory but all else tests OK (tests of the video memory from within the Dell Suite within Win 8 show no errors) Boot Configuration gives me Legacy, UEFI Secure and UEFI Not Secure

I also downgraded the BIOS from A11 to A08 and then back to A11 in hopes of getting back access to BIOS but no luck.

Dell Inspiron 17R SE 7720, Win 8, 1TB, 32GB mSata, nVidia GT650M/2GB
