Hi DELL-RAVI BC,

Thank you for your response.

I understand the meaning of BIOS log.

But, these alert were last year or before. My attempt of BIOS update was done in this month.  At this time,  AC adopter was connected and battery was full.

I think these alert have nothing to do with the inability BIOS update in question.

Hi maru_3,

Sorry for the delayed response. We will have to check the status of the adapter in BIOS; if the adapter is not detected properly the system will continue to receive power but will not charge the battery. Please follow the steps mentioned below to check if the adapter is detected properly.

1. Start the computer by pressing the power button
2. Press the F2 key 2-3 times
3. You will now be on the BIOS screen
4. Under the Main Tab look for the option that says AC Adapter Type
5. If the Adapter Type says Unknown or None with the adapter plugged in.
6. Reconnect the adapter to the machine and if the status now shows as Unknown then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced.

Hi DELL-RAVI BC,

I checked the status of the  AC adapter in BIOS.

Settings>General>Battery  information  show;

Battery health: Normal

AC Adapter = 90W

It seemed that AC adapter of my E5510 is detected properly.

Hi maru_3,

I’d advise that you load defaults in the BIOS. Please follow the steps mentioned below to load the BIOS to defaults.

  1. Reboot the computer.
  2. When prompted during POST, press the <F2> key to enter the setup screen.
  3. On the System Setup screen, press the <F9> key.
  4. Press the <Enter> key on Yes to Load Optimized Defaults and restart the computer.

After loading the BIOS to defaults please try updating the BIOS.

Please let me know the findings.

Hi DELL-Ravi BC,

 

Upon your advice, I loaded defaults in the BIOS.

After loading the BIOS to defaults, I tried updating BIOS A07 to A10 under windows7 environment.

But, nothing changed.  BIOS updating aborted.

Hi DELL-RAVI BC,

Thank you foe your suggestion.

But BIOS update A07 to A16 may not be performed directly. BIOS update A07 to A10 required.

Please refer to following information.

http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverid=W4CT7

Important Information

Please note that if the A09 or before A09 BIOS is currently installed on your system. you must first update to A10 BIOS and then flash to the latest A-rev BIOS.

Hi DELL-RAVI BC,

It's a good report.


Just now, E5510 BIOS update is success.

Updating A07 to A10 can be done using bootable USB key created by NautilusA41_ZPE.

And  updating A10 to A16 is done under win-7 environment.

The above was just a quick report for you.

Hi all,

I am successful in Win7-64bit installation.

The key of succeed may be BIOS update.

After BIOS updating to A16, installation of windows7 64bit can be done with no trouble.

Thank you for your advise.
