You can't reset bios. download the old version from DELL support.
Run cmd (as administrator, right mouse click and "run as administrator"), write cd Desktop (if u save here) and write bios name with /forceit (ex. N5010A07.exe /forceit)

If you are running Windows XP do a system restore. But BEWARE. You will lose everything you have installed since you started operating.

Here is the Dell tech support article for PC Restore to re-image the system to the factory settings.

SOURCE: Boot a Sony DVD RW DRU-840A drive in DELL precision 530

Have you tried changing the boot order.

If you're trying to use it as a boot device you need to tell the system to boot the cd /dvd drive FIRST and of course you need to have a bootable cd / dvd in the drive.

Let me know if you're already tried this.

How to set dell 530 to boot from usb


During start up of your system constantly hit either F2 or F12 to enter Bios.
Once in Bios you can configure your boot settings to boot from Your USB device. Bios is pretty self explanatory even for those of us not to familiar with it myself even. Unfortunately mouse is not usanle in Bios. I've had to go to Bios many times on older systems just to boot from cd/dvd Also to correct problems others have made in the boot settings.
Anyway In Bios there is a little summary of each changeable feature within it. Once you make your selection(s) make sure to save changes so you do not have to keep resetting them to your own personal preference. You should be asked upon exiting if you want to save. Your machine should automatically restart and ask you to press any key to but from your device. If you do not hit any key your machine will but normally from harddrive and you will have to restart the system and wait for it to ask again.

This is a little bit long shot, but check also if there is an updated firmware for the SSD (you will need access to another machine in order to upgrade it). I will look up if I find either a bios for the Dell that is working or another solution

Dell Inspiron 530 won't start, CMOS


Sounds like the CMOS battery is dead. You will find this battery on the mother board. It is a round watch battery, pull it and take it to a store like Walmart to get a proper replacement. I bet if you check your system time, it is wrong too.

Dell dimention 2350 socket 478 I upgrade celeron 2.0Ghz to pentium 4 3.0Ghz 530 The Bios show me the speed 1.5Ghz. Bios A02


The Dell Dimension 2350 Desktop PC motherboard, has an Intel 845GL motherboard chipset,
mounted to it. (System Information),

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2350/specs.htm#1101572

Here we see that the Intel 845GL chipset supports processors, with a -> maximum <- Front Side Bus of 400MegaHertz, (FSB = 400MHz max.),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

The Intel Pentium 4 model 530 (3.0GHz. Also has Hyper-threading Technology. HT), operates with a FSB of 800MegaHertz, (FSB = 800MHz),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_.2890.C2.A0nm.29_2

(Scroll down. Pentium 4 HT 530 )

You can't make the Intel 845GL chipset support a processor with an 800MHz FSB.
BIOS update or not, the voltage range will be too low. Therefore the FSB is low. Changing just the Multiplier will not do the trick either.

(BIOS Setup, Advanced Chipset Setup. Doubt the options of changing the FSB, and/or Voltage, and/or Multiplier, is available with that BIOS program))

Note your 3.0GHz processor is operating at 1.5GHz?

Max FSB supported is 400MHz, and your Model 530 needs 800MHz? (For max operation)

Post additional questions in a Comment.

[ Chip and Chipset are shortened terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The motherboard chipset technology used for your computer, has a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

(Does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors )

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

[ The AGP technology, and the PCI-Express technology, is High-speed graphics.
Using a graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics, is NOT High-speed graphics ]

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
Anything connected to the PCI bus, (Such as a PCI graphics card)
IDE (PATA)
SATA
USB
Ethernet
Audio (Sound)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

[ CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short ]

So it is first up to the Northbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset, whether it will support a certain processor, THEN if a BIOS update will help.

Wont boot up.which button should i press to reset factory settings on powering up?inspiron 530


Factory settings are normally achieved by pressing the F8 on boot up, and choosing the option for "Repair My Computer". If this doesn't work, then CTRL+F11 should take you directly into the recovery option.

THIS LINK FROM DELL should walk you through the process.

Dell Orange Light Problem.


The new processor may not be compatible with your motherboard or BIOS.
Also, if something happend to the computer during the BIOS upgrade (a power surge etc.) then your motherboard could pretty much be ruined.
