I receive the following message when performing a BIOS update on a Dimension 8400 from version A03 to A09:
"Update Failed!" "Could not find the flash image in memory"
I get the same message when running the BIOS update exe file D8400A09.EXE within Windows XP or via a bootable floppy disk.
Does it boot up normally?
Power off and disconnect PC from the wall. Press/hold power button onthe tower for ~15 sec. Open the case and remove the battery from themotherboard. Press/hold the power button again for ~30 sec. Replace thebattery (right side up!), close the case and see if it boots.
