I have a Dell Inspiron 620 desktop. It currently has a BIOS version of "A04". I tried to update to version A10 but it did not update. I ran the appropriate BIOS executable for my specific computer and it reported as updated but after it rebooted the version is still A04. Any ideas? Thanks to those offering suggestions.
Try updating to A05 first.
Also - if you're running Windows 10, the BIOS updater is likely not supported. You'll need to build a bootable flash drive with Windows 7 to install the update.
I am running Windows 7. Before trying to install the latest version (A10) of the BIOS I tried version A08 - the only other one that was available on the Inspiron 620 driver downloads page. Needless to say that didn't work either. The link you gave me was for a Dell OptiPlex. Will this work for the Inspiron 620 as well? Incidentally, I thought about installing Windows 10 but read there were a few driver issues from the sound to HDMI not working anymore.
Thanks to those for taking the time to respond to my problem. The Dell I was having the BIOS problem is a friend's computer. It had alot of problems. I reinstalled Windows 7 and it fixed pretty much everything including the BIOS update situation. I'd like to reiterate my second question - has anyone successfully installed Windows 10 on their Inspiron 620? Thanks again for the comments and advice.
