Inspiron N5110 Bios is not supported for Windows 10

Jump to solution

I have a 3 years Dell Inspiron N5110 i5/8GB ram/Nvidia with Windows home Premium. Very happy with its performance and quality. Today i tried to reserve the Windows 10 copy via the Get Windows10 app. After having trouble to make the icon visible in my toolbar i clicked to to make the reserve and came up with this message...

I am running on the latest BIOS A11, latest windows updates and drivers and still getting this. I have 2 more laptops about 3-4 years older from my Dell and both qualified for Windows 10. Is it me or are there other N5110 users getting this? Is there any other BIOS fix for this? Is there any official answer from Dell about this issue? Is there a possibility Dell fix this before 29 of July?

I've run into the same problem here.

Will there be a bios update for this model?

My laptop is not yet 4 years old and older laptops we have can be updated.

I will not be buying another Dell product if I can not even update this one to W10.

Dell never supported Windows 8.1 on this system - and it's highly unlikely there'll be any further BIOS updates, so Windows 10 support may never exist for it.

I find that completely unacceptable for a device of less than 4 years old.

I have an 8 year old pc  that can still update to 10.

If it's a notebook PC, it's unlikely a 8-year old system can still run 10.  If it's a desktop, that's a different story.

Like I said an 8 year old pc. Not a notebook.

The 2011 Inspiron N5110 will not be supported by Dell for Windows 10. In the report box, when you click on the link, "shop for new PCs online", where does it take you?
