Is it possible to force a BIOS flash on my Dell Studio XPS 1645 laptop? I had problems with a BIOS update which I performed because I put in a new motherboard. That update used the BIOS update exe from Dell for BIOS A13 but I got an error message saying "BIOS update failed! Image verification failed. Error code -200" Now my computer will only boot up if the computer was shut down less than 8 hours ago. My guess is that the issue is with the BIOS but the Dell BIOS update program won't let me update the BIOS. Can I force a BIOS update? How?
