    Hi Thanks for the prompt reply. The Dell website only lists A7. Would you be able to forward me a copy of A9? Regards, David.

  • walton_david Jul 24, 2009

    Yes it does boot up just works very slowly. If I change the setting to 'DMA if available' it just stays in PIO only mode. This refers to Device Manager, IDE advanced settings. I notice there are more pins on the HDD than the connector it pluds into? Regards, David.

    I stand corrected, my Inspiron 6000 which I just updated the bios on was a09..I incorrectly assumed that was for all Inspirons. My apologies. Is the notebook booting?

Dell Inspiron 2200 battery "not present"

Check with the Dell support page and download and run the latest BIOS for your laptop. This should reset all the hardware for the system. This may or may not be the answer but has helped others in the past.
