I put a c610 bios update in my dell c510 latitude laptop

I put a c610 bios update in my dell c510 latitude is there anyway i can undo what i did ? this is a used computer it runs fine. i just went to the dell website drivers and download section wanting to improve on something i should have left well enough alone. So the computer works fine like i said except when i restart the computer due to updates or for whatever. When the computer starts the screen will be black and you really can't find the pointer or see much of anything i believe the c610 bios update i put in could be my problem i have no recovery disc so i could use some help. I'm not on facebook either.

Go back to the Dell website and enter your computer model number and then go to the support tab and then find the bois file list and see if there is any earlier bios files that you could reflash the bios with an older bios version. Or, if you saved your old bios to a file before you updated to the newer bios you could reflash the bios using that one. You did save your old bios didn't you? Does your computer boot to the OS ok or not. I really don't have enough information from you to really help any further. Sorry, Dennis

Where is the bios battery located on a c510 dell latitude?


It is buried on the motherboard. Really buried. You have to disassemble the whole laptop to get to it.

I just bought a Dell Latitude C510/C610 ...it will post to the bios ok but will not find the new hard drive I just bought ...it is an 80 Gb WD. When I go to the bios I can only change the date on the first...


Try to find the setting for what is listed below....it may help out with the laptop finding the new drive. Even if your new drive is a SATA configuration, try below it may help you.

BE SURE that you put the Hard Drive on "Compatibility" mode in BIOS, which was defaulted to "AHCI" (Compatibility is also known as IDE).

To change that setting, you need to do the following:

1. Press F2 when booting up the computer
2. Select 'Config', then 'Serial ATA (SATA)'
3. Change controller option to 'Compatibility' / 'IDE'

My Dell C610 won't reconize the second stick of 256 mb memory


As the computer boots, it detects the additional memory and automatically updates the system configuration information
where did you get the memory?
If it is in properly and does't work,it is either bad or the wrong part number for your Dell C610
