Default Dell Mini 10 (Inspiron 1010) Bricked - 07-20-2009, 07:05 PM


During the MAJ of BIOS on windows with Dell software shift the pc has blocked more medium to nothing I have off and now it remains on a black screen when I turn it on.
I have already looked at to reinstall the BIOS but it must be a floppy disk drive external I tested with a USb key all kinds and it will not!
What to do thank you...

I'm french sorry ^^

Do you have an external cd rom drive that you can run a bios flash off of?

Worst comes to worst call Dell support, I am sure you still have warranty

External CD is of no use if your BIOS is hosed...

May want to give the possible I1010 (Mini10) BIOS recovery above a shot although the Fn+key combos don't translate over from confirmed Mini9 recovery procedure!
