RE: Inspiron 20-3052, Bios update, computer will not do anything

Same thing, same model, I think it is on W7 Prof. I do IT work for a number of clients, this is one of the client's staff that "followed the Dell Assistant".

The machine was shipped mid Nov 2015, any option on whether I can "squeeze" out a motherboard exchange?

Some send out "WannaCry", others send out BIOS upgrades.:emotion-1:

LOL.....that's funny shelquis. I'm still sitting here typing on a tablet, sharing the fact that I'm no closer to getting my computer back after dell broke it. Despite all the "take your computer apart and remove the coin battery" then by some miracle get the thing put back together the it was before dell broke it with their update.  Also the other "ctrl + esc" trick didn't work. Still got a broke paper weight!  GET IT FIXED DELL!!!!

The struggle is real.. I'm sitting here on my old Toshiba laptop which is nearly 10 years old. Will have to settle for this thing until Dell comes up with a fix or otherwise replaces my bricked computer.

This sort of thing has been going on a long time. Here's a post from 2013 answers.microsoft.com/.../d56baa97-dfb5-4ae5-a2a1-18928c40d690

Add me to the list Dell Inspiron 20 model 3052 updated on the weekend woke up to a solid amber/orange light and a dead computer. Contacted Dell on facebook and this is what I was told "The updates Dell releases don’t affect the system. But it would enhance the performance of the system" ummmm no....if they broke they need to fix it....

My 3052 has also been bricked. Let's hope Dell fixes it for free; the Dell Update software that was prepackaged, might I say, reminded me to update constantly. So I did... Well, I am not very happy with the update, so 2 stars out of 5.

Maybe Microsoft is partly to blame for this. The earlier version of Windows 10 was full of vulnerabilities, and all kinds of malware was able to sneak in. The recent update to Windows 10 fixed most of that, but it was like locking the proverbial barn door. The malware was already there.

We still don't know if Dell was the actual source of the update.

I'm sorry, but operating system update (Windows 7,8,10) doesn't have anything to do with what we're seeing.
