Location of bios chip on dell Inspiron 1764


The BIOS chip is soldered onto the motherboard. It is about a 1/2" square chip. The below link is the Dell Inspiron 1764 Service Manual from Dell for the Inspiron 1764. It is in PDF format (Adobe Reader online file, and downloadable).

http://downloads.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_inspiron_laptop/inspiron-1764_service%20manual_en-us.pdf

Opens in Adobe Reader so make sure you have the program already installed, or download and install Adobe Reader from www.adobe.com first.

Once the Service manual is opened. Go to the: System board section. Then scroll down to Replacing the Coin-Cell Battery Click on the link...That is the BIOS chip battery. The actual BIOS chip is not a removable chip on that particular motherboard, but a soldered in place chip located on the opposite side (surface of the motherboard) right near that coin-cell battery location. That chip may be reflashed w/ the latest BIOS by downloading the latest BIOS.bin file avail. from DELL at the following Drivers link.
http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/product/inspiron-1764/research
Choose Drivers and Downloads from the left>Choose the installed OS Version first>Then choose BIOS from the list. The following choices are there; (only 1 version of OS avail. without the actual Service Tag # appears; Win 7 (64 bit OS)).

Windows 7 64 Bit>Latest BIOS file version is A13 (Released 06 Apr 2011) If that matches your OS (Go to Start>Control Panel>System>General Tab and look for Windows 7 and 64 bit as the type of OS installed, you can also download Belarc Advisor from www.belarc.com and install and run it, allow the hardware and software inventory to load (print out the inventory) if possible, on the right near the top the System board info and currently installed BIOS info will show on the inventory along w/ everything else about that current laptop setup), if so, and Win 7 64 bit shows and the BIOS version is anything less than A13 (a smaller # like A6 or A11...then you need to update the BIOS to the A13 flash), is listed, go download from dell the A13 file, and install to flash the BIOS to the A13 latest BIOS version released. Then delete that downloaded file. You only need to flash it once.

Or go to:
www.dell.com Choose Support>Look on the bottom of the laptop for Service Tag: Number or Tag: and enter the # printed there usually a short combo of letters and #'s. Or you can have it scan for the tag # by installing the provided program. Then once you are at the Inspiron 1764 location>Enter your Operating System Version or flavor installed>Choose Drivers. In the Drivers section choose BIOS, and look for the highest BIOS Version Number and latest file date created.

IF THE MOTHERBOARD will not boot to the BIOS setup Screen (Motherboard BIOS is BRICKED or DOORSTOPPED=Corrupted BIOS, usually caused by incorrect flashing w/ the wrong file, or an inturrupted flashing...Though, sometimes just a dead motherboard BIOS coin-battery type battery replacement, and re-flashing with the latest file will cure the issue though).

And should a new preprogrammed BIOS chip be required to UNBRICK THE MOBO, for the Inspiron 1764. One can be purchased on ebay at the following link, but should only be installed by a VERY qualified technician. (Notice it says on their pic....New chip to be soldered on board). That takes skill to properly handle, desolder and resolder the chip properly. DELL and others can also reflash bricked BIOS CHIPS. Chips that were flashed incorrectly turning the motherboard into the dreaded doorstop.

But if the BIOS setup is reachable (the computer will start and boot to at least the BIOS Setup screen...Usually F2 or F10 or Delete keys. Just watch the screen on boot up, choose the BIOS Setup or Setup key combo listed). If so, (you can get to Setup, then the BIOS Chip is not bricked, corrupted, damaged, or doostopped), In that case, just go download the latest BIOS Version .bin file from the above Dell Drivers Link for your OS version, and go into Windows and double click the file w/ the power adapter plugged in and all other programs closed...follow the instructions, and do not interrupt the BIOS Flashing process (very IMPORTANT!) The computer will simply restart after the BIOS flashing is completed...You may have to go back to setup after it restarts and load default settings if it does not load Windows after the flash, then restart again.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BIOS-CHIP-DELL-INSPIRON-1764-/400663668014?pt=US_Motherboard_Components&hash=item5d496a652e#ht_928wt_1182

Good Luck!

I can't go through bios setup. On setup utility main menu, only system date and time are highlited with blue color. I can't move the seletion arrows to highlight BIOS version.


Only items that can be modified by the user are highlighted. The BIOS version is just there for informational purposes. If you flash-update the BIOS, when you return to the page you would see the new version.

Cannot update dell e5510 bios a09-a10


I would first try repairing the bios using software.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:
http://www.syschat.com/download120.html&act=down

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

My battery won't charge in my Dell E1705


The current bios version is A09. The bios version on your system can be found under the Dell splash screen when you first turn on your computer or by going into the bios itself. If your version is older (A08, A07, etc), you can go to http://www.dell.com and at the bottom click Drivers and Downloads. Get the 7-digit alphanumeric Service Tag form the bottom of the laptop and enter it when prompted. It will take you to the Download page specific to your computer where you can then download the current bios.

While some battery issues have been taken care of with a bios update, in my experience the issue is usually the battery itself not being able to hold the charge. On average batteries develop problems about a year to 2 years after purchasing the laptop, just in time for the warranty to run out. This means a new battery will need to be purchased. I have also run into the power adapter not charging the batter properly due to the the adapter failing or a break in the cord coming from the wall outlet or from the brick to the laptop. Verify that the power adapter is working properly.

Dell Dimension 8200 Processor


hi, i also hav a dimensions 8200 which i recently uprgaded to a 2.8gh, but i discovered there were two versions of this system one which supports a 400FSB and the other 533FSB, these can determine the speed of ur cpu. Like you, I havent been able to unlock my clock speeds in the bios but i think you should be able to get more from ur new cpu by updating ur bios version to A09. check the dell site for more info on how to do this.

Hard disk size read wrong by bios


You can easily flash the BIOS and see if that fixes the problem. Dell has a BIOS version A09 on their web site (http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/format.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&deviceid=308&libid=1&releaseid=R49451&vercnt=7&formatcnt=0&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_8200&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=-1&impid=-1). You could try that. Just make sure to have your computer on a battery backup (UPS) while flashing the BIOS. If the power were to go out in the middle of flashing, you may cause damage to the BIOS chip.
