Find the dell file on the USB stick, copy to XP desktop. Hi guys, I own an XPS 9350 (Developer Edition) that came with Ubuntu preinstalled.If you built your own computer, you will either need to download a BIOS update program from your motherboard manufacturer or you will need to manually perform the flash, which normally entails using a USB stick and booting into DOS.

If it doesn't exist dig deeper into why it's not working right. https://github.com/rhboot/fwupdate/blob/master/linux/datadir is really a bad selection, it should be ending up in /var/cache instead.

Probably not, but in this article I’ll walk you through the process of determining whether or not there is an update for your BIOS or UEFI firmware and whether or not you need to install it.

I tried all the remedies found on the net,like taking off the battery, discharge the capacitors , I even took apart the laptop and put it back together. This is my only laptop that I have and I just can not believe that its ruined.

I pray the God that there is someone reading this and knows how to fix it.

Rufus settings should be set as following: Then, after booting from the USB drive, simply start the flash program: Then, follow the steps the flash program walks you through.

Like the others said, you might want to try the Copy the BIOS update exe file locally on to your PC, open the command prompt, navigate to the location of the exe file and type the name of the exe file and add /forceit to the end eg: E7440A13/forceit press enter and the update should start and ignore the lack of a battery @ 10% charge.

Enable "start up" from USB and disable all other startup options. Insert HBD on USB stick, start computer, boot from the XP option that comes up.

The laptop turned on, I can hear there is activity shown in the background,fan is working normally but I have a black screen and a repeated beep coming in one second intervals continuous coming of the speakers.

I understand that one beep means motherboard problem.

In order to update this low-level software, you normally have to “flash the BIOS“, which will replace the old software with the new version.
