I have installed win 7 on my inspiron 1520 and i see 1 or 2 per day the blue screen and sometimes firefox crashes.
I have not installed any drivers or uncompatible programs.
i looked into dell website and i saw it was not listed as the compatible for 7.
What is the matter ? it s not recomended to be installed on inspiron 1520 ?
If not which of my hardware should be improved ?
I use win 7 32 bit on my 1520 with bios A09 and it runs perfectly.
Is that the original bios or you have updated it ?
That's the latest bios that dell offered on their downloadsite...
well. i am running A04.
you think by updating it the problem will be solved ?
and by the way i don t know how to update bios. is it harmlos ?
