Most new BIOS versions contain fixes and improvements. Be sure to use somms utility.

Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Bios A04


1.Resolve the error message can't show after setting supervisor password and then using to delete service tag.
2.Resolve rotation setting with external LCD after resume from S3
3.Computrace support.
4.Display switch (Fn+8) on DOS mode (LCD ->CRT ->LCD )
5.Desktop icon position can't be fixed after PC re-boot
6.Display can't keep on extend mode after press Fn+8 to switch.
7.Battery performance improvement.

Don't try turning off Computrace as it actually turns it on (I can't really recall). Just don't mess with it. It's a lo-jack type of PAID service.
