Purpose of updating bios

22 Jul

So for those of you who are finding that the battery trick doesn’t do it (my dell hasn’t given me trouble since, maybe you’re also a lucky one) then looking into a bios and driver update could do the trick.

UPDATE 9/18/08: Here are some particularly helpful comments I’ve recieved as of late.

Putting them in the main body of this post so that they are more easily accessible: Queenie – I had the same problems.

I have the studio 1535, keyboard and touchpad are not working.

The best way to fix this problem is go to go through Dell Live chat support.

I can’t even take credit for solving this problem on my own laptop, I found someone else’s cool trick.And also I’d like to relinquish any responsibility for how any of you out there might take this information and use it, because this is the internet, and gosh darnit I do not want to get sued, or accused by some jerk for messing up their computer. You do whatever you want, I’m just throwing out some amassed data and suggestions. You can’t blame God because you stubbed your toe and he created the rock that did it.GRUB is derived from PUPA which was a research project to develop the next generation of what is now GRUB Legacy.GRUB has been rewritten from scratch to clean up everything and provide modularity and portability [1].The kernel, in turn, initializes the rest of the operating system.The name GRUB officially refers to version 2 of the software.I’ll also get around to scouring the web and citing my sources.
