Updating bios on dell inspiron 1420
On Dell website found instructions on how to update the BIOS but it requires Windows.I have also check the com web site but it does not support Debian yet.I first thought something was wrong with the SDD, so went back to the shop, they tested it (and were even so kind to format it), but still it does not get recognized by the Dell.The shop mentioned that DELL is problematic with accepting SSD.You must block quote text that has been written by some else. I've fixed it for you this time, but please pay attention to this in future.Update: Oh yeah, and do make sure to use the latest upgrade.Like the others said, you might want to try the Copy the BIOS update exe file locally on to your PC, open the command prompt, navigate to the location of the exe file and type the name of the exe file and add /forceit to the end eg: E7440A13/forceit press enter and the update should start and ignore the lack of a battery @ 10% charge. I cant remember if there was another box confirming update but if there was I confirmed. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site (the association bonus does not count).I had a Dell Latitude 13 (win 10 x64) which I wanted to update the bios to A02. Left it for a minute - nothing seemed to be happening. On the next reboot Bios update started and completed. Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?

Hi all, My little brother has gave that Dell inspiron n4110 BIOS a password and now he has forgot it.
Bill2 : i'll try to update my BIOS to A09 from dell then... I know I can remove that password by opening the laptop but I don't want to open it. So I have inserted windows 7 Installation disk into CD drive.
