Last week I updated my machine to the latest BIOS from Dell, file name 7437A10.exe. The machine rebooted fine after the installation and worked fine for a day or two. But now my machine will not boot pass the DELL logo (the progress bar at the bottom keeps spinning). The hard disk light lights up and blinks, indicating that the system is accessing the hard disk.
I tried a few things to get the machine to boot, with no success. What I tried was:
None of these options worked. Can you help me figure out what the problem is?
I'm running Windows 10.
Thank you in advance.
Why did you update the bios? Laptops rarely need bios updates and if you do update the bios it should be done before upgrading the operating system. Dell has all the drivers you needed for win 10 here--
Try booting to Safe Mode or to the repair disk you made. You might be able to run the diagnostics to test the hardware and do a custom test of the hard drive. Bios update failures usually do not "work for a few days." It might be a coincidence and something else is causing the problem. Use the links on the Support page to get more info.
This also happened to my Dell Latitude E6500. It works well with Windows 10 OS until I updated its BIOS to the latest version released by Dell. Upon updating it doesnt restart anymore. The power button flashes several times together with the battery light indicator. I can only boot it manually by removing first then reinserting its charger. When i shut it down, the power led lights for 1 minute even if no more sound of the fan is heard. What is the possible solution for this?.
