Question Can't update past A07 BIOS - 10-18-2012, 07:59 PM

Hi all,
Having a PITA upgrading my BIOS, I can't seem to get it to update onto the A12 BIOS. I downloaded the update from Dell directly and it runs, but never completes and updates it.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

why not just leave it alone.....or do you really want an expensive paperweight?, what is it that A12 has that you need so badly......or are you just one of those people that just has to have the latest?......if it works just leave it alone.....or perhaps you would like to start your next thread now about how to unbrick a 1012

BSOD and rebooting after sleeping, checked BIOS and realised it wasn't latest so thought updating would help was all.
