Once you upgrade the BIOS,it is not possible to downgrade. However, since the system is hanging frequently you can go ahead and run the PSA hardware diagnostics. Follow the steps below.
Switch off the system; remove the battery, ac adapter and the power cable. Press and hold down the power button for thirty seconds to drain any excess flea power and run the test. Please run the PSA hardware diagnostics to check if the hardware is working as designed. Follow the steps below.
Turn the computer off >restart the computer
At the Dell logo screen, start tapping the F12 key a few times until you see the ‘One Time Boot Menu’ appear.
At the one time boot menu, press the down arrow key to highlight ‘Diagnostic’, and then press Enter to begin the PSA diagnostics.
If the test fails, please make a note of any error codes listed. You can also refer to the link below.
Please do reply for further assistance.
thank u mr.senthil. I ran the diagnostics. It didnt show any error. I installed a patch fix from microsoft and updated my windows. Now the hanging probelm is resolved.Thanks anyway

I am planning to instal windows 8 with bios update A11 but i am afraid that system will hang randomly as mentioned by some user of n5110 in blogs. So please guide me .I will be waiting for ur views about this problem and its solution. Thank you
