Do you mean to replace the motherboard or the Bios? I assume you mean the motherboard.
I've been researching the possiblity of having a new bios chip put on the motherboard instead of the cost of a new motherboard (300+ install).
Thank you for the quick response.

SOURCE: Update BIOS E1505/6400 fails
The link below will take you to Dell's support download site for the e1505 BIOS download.
It is version A17. Download the file to your desktop and then double click on it to run it. A window will ask if you wish to upgrade the BIOS. Click yes. The system will shutdown, the BIOS will be flashed and Windows will restart.
The error that you mention above indicates that the file did not download properly for you before.
Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem
Not sure if it's a sure fix or not, but it worked for me.
I have a Dell Latitude c640 and when powering up, the caps LED would blink roughly 10 times, things would spin up, but after the 10 or so blinks, it would power down without anything having been displayed. This happened just after I had the laptop going on batteries, and it went into hibernate mode automatically after the batteries got low. When I plugged back up to a power supply and turned on, the computer started to exhibit this problem.
All I did was removed the bottom panel, removed both memory modules, put the memory modules back in the slot, rocked them at least 7 times before locking them back in to place to ensure a good seat, and completly seated them (clicks into place), closed up the panel, and powered up.
After doing this, the system booted up normally.
Just as a bynote , Faulty RAM, damaged motherboard affecting the RAM (ie cracked RAM slot where it was maybe forced in with a bit too much pressure) and lastly cooking the chip although this is a lot more rare.
Easiest way to check is get another laptop and swap YOUR RAM INTO IT if it affects that laptop then RAM, riskier is to switch ITS RAM into yours, still does it - generally MoBo.
there are also other problems that cause these errors, but in my experience these are the most common
Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you
