BIOS flash issue

This question has suggested answer(s)

A few days ago I flashed  to BIOS a10 on Vostro 3700. Since then battery charging is disabled. laptop will boot with battery removed. Swapped battery still no charge.

Unable to downgrade to A09. Unable to re-flash a10. need to either rollback or factory reset bios. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Not happy today.

  • before you despair do the normal troubleshooting - just pretend you have never updated the BIOS......

    I assume that battery and power adapter are 100% Dell compatible

    > check if the BIOS detects the power adapter - press "F2" at powerup

    > if adapter is not detected it could be the power adapter itself,the power jack or mainboard/BIOS
