Post bios request in correct bios mods section.
Not really sure if this will help but, my dad has the same notebook and I couldn't flash it from dos for whatever reason. Also the only way I was able to get it to work while inside windows was to do it from a 32-bit installation. The flashing utility wouldn't work from his 64-bit os even though I had gotten it from 64-bit bios off dell's website. It was a bit of a pain, but it all worked out in the end. Also, stick with a 32-bit windows 7 when you are done; between the lack of video driver support and whatever drivers windows update gives you on 64-bit the video has a tendency to freak out and just give you a black screen when coming out of sleep or hibernation. 32-bit,however, works just fine... just my two cents.
Found this on another topic:
File name: DELL_Inspiron_1501-DELL-A16_or_2.6.3.rar
File description: Dell Inspiron 1501 A16 or 2.6.3 SLIC 2.1
File size: 3.29 MB
Not tested by myself but this is supposed to be the original file that was posted on here.
tested and works fine.
Is it possible to re-post a link for the file DELL_Inspiron_1501-DELL-A16_or_2.6.3.rar please ?
I don't have enough posts for a direct link so please join this together
This link doesn't work.. says file restricted, and when you go to the user that uploaded it, it says no files..
Does anyone have this file anymore?
