    HI to everyone,

    Pls help me on recovering my bios of Dell Xps M1530 the battery led is blinking Red only

    i tried to copy bios file to usb M1530XX.HDR im using 1gb usb formated fat
    i plug the usb and hold the end key then plug the power , im waiting for any changes on blinking red battery led but nothing happens even the fan is not turning on and the usb is not blinking.

    i notice if i press the power the fan will work but still nothing happens.

    pls post instruction if anyone successfully recovered a xps m1530.

    i think proper name is HAWxxx.HDR HAWA12.HDR or HAW12.HDR
    no battery, insert usb:
    a: if bios not crashed hold power and END
    then insert ac power. (to force recovery)
    b: if bios is crashed ..hold END only
    then insert ac power.

    battery light starts blinking multicolors for a 1 to 2 minutes.

    how do i know filename ?
    my inspiron 1520 says in the .HDR
    COR?à.0BIN... HDR and i use CORxxx.HDR CORA09.HDR

    your 1530 is
    HAW?à0BIN... HDR so u use HAWxxx.HDR HAWA12.HDR
