Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook ?

Update BIOS E1505/6400 fails

\015 Trying to update BIOS on Dell e1505/6400. Downloaded only file provided by Dell for my Service Tag. Attempt to flash the BIOS gives me error message, "A0.... is not a valid Win32 file.' What now? Thx.\015

Answers :

The link below will take you to Dell's support download site for the e1505 BIOS download.

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R158849&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=10430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=9&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=212350

It is version A17. Download the file to your desktop and then double click on it to run it. A window will ask if you wish to upgrade the BIOS. Click yes. The system will shutdown, the BIOS will be flashed and Windows will restart.

The error that you mention above indicates that the file did not download properly for you before.

Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.
