The bios is a very touchy thing, if you screw them up you will have a door stop. Reboot the computer and start the bios update again. This time download and save the bios update to the hard drive and then run it from there. You should never run any type of bios program from the internet, you should ALWAYS save or burn to disc, then run. The internet is entirely to unstable for such an important update, if there's a glitch or loss of connection, even only for a millisecond, it can ruin your machine. If you cannot reboot and finish the update, get back to me and i'll see if I can get you through this.

Bios password generator dell inspiron 1545


BIOS passwords can be reset in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!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

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://www.syschat.com/download121.html&act=down

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

Good Luck!

Yep. U had a software issue initially - there was nada wrong with your bios. Apparently, the bios update did not go well and now you have a piece of junk on our hands. Without a proper working bios no computer will boot up. And on a laptop the bios chip is usu.ally soldered on the motherboard so it cannot be readily removed and replaced.

Time to go shopping.

Actually the your problem is not on the hardware part of your computer, its the software of your computer, when you hit the update your bios, what your computer did is that it automatically download the said update then you interrupt it right, so update was interrupted. its a very critical action that you did, there's only one way to fix it. that if you still have the disk that comes with your laptop as you bought it. ping me here if you still have so i can guide you.. Thanks!
