    BIOS of Vostro 1320 is not true DELL but Phoenix. Just run the exe file, it will temporarily extract all contents to C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\WINPHLASH
    Do NOT exit the BIOS Phlash but copy the temp folder first, you will gain your BIOS ROM file.

    I have same problem after I tried to update my bios under windows 7 64bit,
    I extracted my bios rom file, but can't switch to recover mode using any key above.
    I’m using usb storage as Crisis Recovery disk but with no luck.
    Any one has a new idea
