Dell Latitude E5570 BIOS 1.7.3 Update Failed

Q: Dell Latitude E5570 BIOS 1.7.3 Update Failed

Hi, I have repeated experience of failed BIOS firmware update on Dell e5570. More precisely the part
"Sending Intel (R) Management Engine Firmware Update" always hangs on 100% and never finishes. The annoying thing is that laptop cannot be shutdown via power button (even with the long press) and I have to wait hours till my battery dies :-(
Im trying to update BIOS from 1.6.3 to 1.7.3. In the end, I have 1.7.3 BIOS version, but Embedded Controller stays on A07 instead of A11 so I got my PC into middle of versions :-( First broken thing I noticed is WiFi always turned off after wake from sleep or after startup.
Dell support, please help. I need new BIOS (and Embedded Controller) to resolve some NVMe and other issues with the laptop.
Thanks, M.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there,
We have recently purchased (last month) a Latitude E5570 with docking station. We experience system hangs and freezes several seconds, sometimes up to a minute after hot undocking the laptop.  The mouse and keyboard become unresponsive.

It usually emits a beep code before freezing up.  4 beeps then a pause and then 1 beep. Any information regarding this?
Anyone have insights into this?

A:Failed BIOS update - Dell XPS 8500

When did your warranty expire? If it expired less than 6 months ago, you might be able to get Dell to fix it, assuming they can get the board. They had a policy to replace a board -one time only- if it failed a Dell BIOS update within 6 months after the end of warranty. I don't know if that policy still exists.
Those are all different revisions of the same motherboard. I don't know what the differences are. They could be as simple as a different supplier for one of the components on the board all the way up to a change in the circuit layout.
Maybe Dell Spare Parts can tell you about the differences among the 3, or at least tell you which is the most recent revision,  even if they don't have the boards available...?
All three support the H77 chipset which is a key issue.
Look at your motherboard for the sticker to see what version you have now. If you can't find out about specific differences, you may want to get one that's the same version, assuming it's one of the choices available.
You should look elsewhere if Impact doesn't have the revision you want and/or for price comparisons. And always ask if the board is new, used, refurbished and about the warranty.

I just got a used M4600, and the currently installed bios is A08. When I try to update to A16, it restarts, says it's updating firmware, but fails at 0%. It gives no reason, and no error code as far as I can tell. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide.

A:Bios update failed - Dell Precision M4600

That is NOT the issue! There is nothing wrong with the M4600 motherboards per se.
Everybody has been trying to find why when trying a BIOS upgrade, the system immediately fails with a basic "BIOS Update Failed" and no specific error code or more explanation. The answer is in the PDF document below - that is the message displayed when BIOS authentication fails!
You just have to look up the Dell Signature Firmware 'feature' that was introduced into a number of laptop incl the M4600.  Download PDF doc. That was a feature introduced per NIST requirements.
In a nutshell, they changed the way BIOS authenticates a BIOS file before it will use it to update the BIOS & EC firmware. The M4600 is in the list of "Legacy Systems" where this was introduced. Basically, these systems did NOT have the Signature Firmware when produced. 
Version A04 introduced this feature. After you install that, you will have an option to turn the Signature Firmware requirement On (default is Off). Once turned On, it can NOT be turned off! 
The problem starts in BIOS ver A08. Something in the code is wrong. Because on some M4600s it updates the BIOS AND Activates the Signature Firmware requirement. After that, the system will NOT authenticate ANY other BIOS versions so you will NOT be able to upgrade past version 8!
I manage many, many systems for a company. I am currently sitting on 33 (yes, that many) M4600 with that exact same situation!
A motherboard swap does not correct the issue; all it does is give you a new BIOS chip to mess around with.

Good Evening All,

I having a problem with my Dell Latitude D610.

I went to update the BIOS and it said that the battery is not installed despite the laptop running solely off of battery power!

I have ran the dell device diagnostic and device manager and no issue appears to be with the battery. When you check the battery info in the BIOS settings it says the batteries are not installed and also when you log into XP it constantly says running off of AC power even when its not plugged in!

Any one got any ideas what could be causing this and how it can be solved?

Thanks Nick

A:Dell Latitude "battery not installed" preventing BIOS update

It may be referring to the CMOS battery which is wired to the computer beneath the keyboard. The battery can be replaced for $8.95 to $29.95 depending on where you purchase...

But regardless, you do have a problem that must be resolved. The D610 has been one strange little irrelevant problem after another... but you cannot afford to irritate it and have that mysterious unremovable password appear as it has on so many D610 and D620 Dells.

I received a e5570 yesterday from work. It's got a 256 M2 MSATA SSD installed. And I would very much like to add a second SSD to increase the amount of storage. Is there a way (perhaps with some spare part/bracket) to add another M2 SSD by using a bracket where the normal HDD is supposed to be installed (which is now empty).

I have a Latitude E5570 and a 27" external monitor with QHD (2560x1440) resolution.  It's a Dell U2713HM.
When I connect it using the HDMI connector (as the laptop doesn't have DisplayPort built-in) the maximum resolution I can select is 1920x1080, which looks horrible since it's upscaled to 2560x1440.  Is there a way to use the full resolution of the monitor with this laptop?
It may be the Intel HD Graphics 530 adapter that is limited to this resolution, but I don't find a way to use the AMD Radeon R7 M370 (which this laptop also has) instead.
I know there is a docking station that adds DisplayPort support, but will that actually help or does it just adapt the HDMI output to DisplayPort?

Hi, I switched default SSD for Samsung 950 Pro that comes with super fast NVMe interface. E5570 supports this interface - thats one of the reasons i bought it. But I cannot run it on full speed because then I loose some other functionality. The thing is NVMe is really effective when SATA operation is switch Off in BIOS. But doing so leads to keyboard being inactive after every hibernate wakeup, black screens after sleeps etc. There are other users reporting the very same thing with SATA off. So the workaround is to go to AHCI option in BIOS, but it degradates NVMe performance. Any resolution to that?
Otherwise, E5570 is great notebook, powerful, thin, quality material. Only this NVMe thing (and high-frequency noise coming from mobo - which will be hopefully solved by motherboard replacement.)
Thank You, Martin

Unfortunatelly i am not able to get full speed of NVMe drive ("only" 1600/2200 read speed and 127000/270000 iops read). Workaround with SATA disable does not work for me,

It sounds like they got the version with the low end screen.  You can't go any higher then the screen is built for and from what I can tell, the model either comes with a 720p panel which is what you have, or 1080p panel.

Hi there,
I ordered a Latitude E5570 from Taiwan Dell and opted for a 6-cell 84WHr battery (and M2 SSD as storage, knowing 6-cell and HDD cannot coexist in this machine), but disappointingly when the machine arrived I found out it was only equipped with a 4-cell 62Whr battery. Despite the 6-cell battery has always been marked as available on Taiwan Dell E5570 webpage, Taiwan Dell told me (only after the machine arrived) that it is currently unavailable, but they will not let me return the machine, because according to them it's not an option for customized products.
Frustration aside, right now what concerns me the most is whether or not the 6-cell 84WHr battery will ever be available for ordering from Taiwan Dell, and if not, how can I acquire it. I can't find this battery even on US Dell accessories website.I believe the part number of this battery is either HNH3K or WJ5R2.

Because mine shipped with an M.2 drive, it doesn't have a bracket or what appears to be the needed cable to attach it to the motherboard.  There is a spot inside the case to put a 2.5" drive, but without the bracket and cable you can't do it.

This is a tough one, That can be a problem with buying from Ebay is that if you don't have information of the original purchaser then any existing warranty may not transfer to you,  and tech support will not be able to offer any services, or even help with a BIOS password.  If you haven't already i suggest contacting tech support again and showing all the documents that you have to verify ownership.

You will need to call Dell with two things:

I've a Dell Latitude 610 laptop that I bought on Ebay. Unfortunately the seller didn't provide me with the Bios password. I've been reading the other threads and I've tried the latitude.exe program but my service key doesn't work as its a 595b.


If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be very much appreciated!

Hi! :-)
On an A12 BIOS on my E7250, UEFI PXE booting doesn't appear in one-time boot menu and BIOS configuration (of course UEFI Network Stack and NIC w/PXE boot is enabled).After downgrading BIOS to A00, it magically comes back, but after updating back to A12 - it's gone again.
I've also tried A08, no option in here, so it was probably broken before.Legacy NIC boot works nicely and flawlessly.
Are there any Dell guys out here who could forward it to BIOS development team?

A:Dell Latitude D620 BIOS Password

Short answer: You need the original password.
That unit has been refurbished by a Dell-authorized shop (as all with the 595B are) so the restore discs cannot be used.
All of the suggestions your tried, are known not to work in that model... The D600 and D620 are the most difficult of all Dells to fix. You will likely need to replace the motherboard with one known to work. Most of the boards on eBay have the same problems you have.

I received last week, all those new models and I have an issue with all of them...
I deploy Windows 7 enterprise 64 bit with SCCM 2012 and bitlocker is setup during the task sequence with a PIN code on boot.
This process is working for all model until then .. Latitude and Precision from previous generations.. but now with new models there is an issue with the PIN. At the end of task sequence, the disk is encrypted and there is no error BUT the PIN code is not recognized and the recovery key is asked.
This recovery key is correctly registered in AD. TPM is on and ownership is ok. TPM version is 1.2...
I already tried to manualy decrypt and encrypt again after TPM reset but no way.
I also tried Windows 10 enterprise, and issue is the same.
Is it a known issue ? Did someone here already experienced the same ? 

A:Bitlocker issue with new models Latitude E7270 E5470 E5570 and Precision 7710 , 7510

This issue is one that is being worked on and there are BIOS updates coming out that will resolve it.
At the moment the latest BIOS for the E7270 will fix the issue (BIOS 1.2.2)
For the Latitude E5470/E5570 and Precision 7510/7710 the BIOS updates to fix this will be released soon. I'm not going to give dates at this point as they may change.

Dear friends.

I have a problem with my DELL LATITUDE D800. I lost the BIOS PASSWORD. The message in the screen is:

"This computer system # C3CWZ41-595B, is protected by a password
authentication system. You cannot access the data on this computer without the correct password. Please type in the primary or administrator password and press Enter".

Please help me. I shortcircuit the pins 3 and 6 of the CI 24C02, 3 and 7 and 4 and 5 too. Do nothing. Finally changed the chip 24C02 by 24C256N. The Screen message persists.

I have spoken with Dell support and they generated a passwork that did not work. I have also tried to use latitude.exe with the same results. I have read that it will not work with a service code ending in -595B. I have also read that member name removed can get around this problem. Can anyone help.

I desperately need a Bios Dump of an Dell E6430 Version A18, as somehow it is impossible to update the Bios (currently it is A14). I have some problems with networking when using a docking station I hope to solve with this..Please no advice how to update Bios, I already tried everything(!). The Laptop does just a reboot instead of flashing the update.
I can create a dump of A14 from Windows using Intels FPTW (64bit Version) without a problem, so I hope it will work with A18 as well.At least using Windows 7 Pro 64bit with Adminstrator account. If anybody with an E6430 and A18 could just create a dump (just click "dump.bat") and upload it here it would really make me happy.

Hi Edwalin,
Welcome to the Dell Community.
Since the system is not booting to the Desktop screen, Assuming you have Windows 7 Operating System installed on the system.
I would suggest you follow the steps to boot the system into ‘Safe Mode with Networking’ and check.

Restart the computer.
As the computer boots, press <F8> when the Dell Splash Screen appears.
Scroll down to option ‘Safe mode with networking’ and Click on ‘Enter’ button.
This will boot you into the ‘Safe mode with networking’ and check.

If the system boots into the ‘Safe Mode with Networking’ then the issue seems to be with the drivers.
Let us know your findings.

I recently obtained a Dell Latitude E6430 without a hard drive. I installed an SSD and managed to get windows up and running but ran into problems.
I noticed that every time I enter the BIOS setup and exit the laptop will always fail to boot and I would have to re-seat a ram stick to turn on the laptop again or if I closed the laptop lid the laptop will turn off and once again I will have to re-seat the ram sticks for it to boot again.
I noticed that the laptop is running on an older BIOS version (A11). I tried updating to the latest version with various methods.
- I tried just running the executable
- Tried using the command prompt and using /forceit command
- Tried booting into a bootable USB into freeDOS and updating that way
I'm really running out of ideas and right now the laptop is completely unusable.

Joseph mate best leave as is after all it was made to function as it came. Now for the compound and copper shim personally I would not bother with the copper shim I can see no good reason for it the dual pipe again if it was made to work with one pipe then leave alone.

It is better if you renew the compound using a decent cleaner and compound and I can recommend these for that job

Arctic Silver Incorporated - ArctiClean for thorough cleaning and preparation and Arctic Silver Incorporated - Arctic Silver 5 for the compound.

Now it depends on who you listen to but I always use these products and after the old compound is thoroughly cleaned off and the surfaces prepped I spread the compound very thinly and across the both entire surface of the CPU and the heatsink with my finger inside a vinyl or latex glove and then place a rice grain sized piece of compound on the CPU and replace the heatsink. If you touch the surfaces after clean and prep then redo it.

While you are in there do make sure the fan and the radiator are really spotless and I sometimes relube the fan bearings to make sure the fan is running at full tilt when needed.

Now I don't want to shut down or restart my computer because I fear it won't boot up. This is awful. Is there anything I can do to restore my BIOS whilst my computer still works?

A:Just used @BIOS to update my BIOS, it failed at 50%

Argh is there ANYTHING I can do? I'm going to have to leave my computer on permanently otherwise.

On several occasions HP Support Assistant has notified a BIOS upgrade available.  All have churned for a while, then reported that the update was unsuccesfull. I find this alarming to say the least, as BIOS updates are both critical, and potentially disastrous. Can you tell me why you keep on submitting updates that do not work? Should I bother to keep on trying to install them, or just consign them directly to the trash bin? This is a relatively new (this year) PC, and I find this severely undermines my confidence in the technical abilities of HP as a hardware provider. Windows 10ADSL then Ethernet cable (not wifi)18Meg down/1Meg upOS and Drivers kept up to date

I just recently updated my BIOS for ECS-G33T-M2 motherboard. I got the update from the ECS website itself but now everytime I restart my computer, it tells me Bad CMOS, CHECKSUM error, press F1. I go and fix the time and date, afterwards I save it and exit, computer resets, same dilema, Bad CMOS, CHECKSUM error, try it again, same thing. The only way for me to get to windows is if i exit without saving, but then my time is always off, and its fairly annoying to constantly keep fixing it. Help anyone?

A:BIOS UPDATE, failed?

Go back to the old BIOS. If your PC is working all right, there is no reason to update the BIOS. GOOD LUCK

Hi, On several occasions I have attempted to install an offered BIOS update (SP71055). The installation fails with a simple 'installation failed' dialogue box. Any advice welcomed.

Hi, For reasons I deeply regret I attempted to flash BIOS on an Acer netbook with the wrong BIOS as it turned out.
I've tried Acer's crisis disk facility with the correct version of BIOS on a usb stick at boot up (pressing Fn Esc) but no go.
The boot up gets as far as the Windows XP splash screen then I get the BSOD. It won't start in safe mode either, although I can get into the BIOS. I read somewhere that taking out the cmos battery will reset bios to default but can't get the keyboard out to expose the m/board anyway.

Is there anything left to try before I relegate the netbook to a paperweight.
