Studio XPS 1647 BIOS update

Q: Studio XPS 1647 BIOS update

Hello people.
I've just discovered that my BIOS is version A00 that's probably been there since manufacture and would like to update it. The download of the last/latest version would appear to be A11, with the caveat being thus:
Product not tested for Windows 10 upgrade
Dell is not testing or developing Windows 10 drivers for this product. If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected.
As i did upgrade to Windows 10 a while back i'm concerned that this may not work and potentially wreck the laptop.
Has anyone tried this? or will it work?
Many thanks for your assistance.

Preferred Solution: Studio XPS 1647 BIOS update

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A couple days ago I was using my computer as normal, when the wifi connection went out. Other devices were working, so, no biggie, Windows is flaky, just restart the connection. That didn't work, so fine, Windows is really flaky, just restart the computer.
Except that now it won't get through the BIOS, the loading bar gets to ~80% and stops. I can hit ESC to see the list of components that it can find, but F2 and F12 don't ever execute. There are no beeps. I tried removing the RAM sticks one at a time, removing the wifi card (since that was the proximate cause of the restart), and checked the mobo battery's voltage (~3.2V). Are there any more debugging steps I can take?

Remove the hard drive from the system.  If you can then get into setup, you've got a bad drive.

A:dell xps studio 1647 laptop pressing random buttons

Hi,
Quick question, Your model has Quickset buttons? usually Quickset is a application You install when loading Windows. What happens if You disable Quikset temporarily?
 
I'm not recollecting the layout of Your Dell.
The service manual is here
 
If the quickset buttons are separate as I seem to recall, they may have been damaged too. If not is there a possibility more liquid has been spilled into the keyboard?
 
Some trouble shooting You could do. Using the service manual and being very careful as the connectors are delicate unhook the Keyboard and test using a USB keyboard.
 
Any chance You can take it back to the Technician and ask why this is happening when they said only the keyboard was defective.
 
Good Luck
Roger

Hi guys.. i have a weird problem where my laptop thinks the headphone pin is still inside the jack even though its not and because of this the laptop speakers are not working. I researched this problem and found out that if you change something in the registry, you can disable jack sensing and allow the speakers to work, and if not that, you can make it so that both the speakers and the headphones work at the same time.
I have a Dell studio xps 1647 , the audio driver installed is idt . Your help in this would be highly appreciated.

A:Jack sensing xps 1647?

The original problem with the jack sensing is because the extra sensing contact in the jack is in the position where it is telling the PC there is a plug in the jack. Ultimately the audio board will have to be replaced. If its still in warranty, contact Dell support so it can be repaired (replace audio board). Usually the jack itself cannot be repaired and user replacing the jack (unsoldering/resoldering) can be an issue because of the multi-layer PC board and the special tools needed.

If its out of warranty, it looks like the audio board has the connectors and can be replaced.
I found one for $27.95 HERE I know nothing about the company other than I found it doing a google search.
The Dell Service Manual can be downloaded from Dell HERE

Sometimes you can put a plug in and wiggle it around and get it to "release". On some (RealTek, not IDT that I've seen) there is an option in the sound card configuration panel to have both the headphone and speakers on at the same time.

BTW, you have a "Studio" XPS 1647

I flashed the BIOS to A04 some months ago and never paid much attetion to it. The flash said it was successful. But when I looked at System Properties, it gives the BIOS date as 10/21/2010; the BIOS was released 10/31/2011. Is this correct? It seems that date is older than BIOS A02.
 

A:Studio XPS 9100 BIOS A04 shows date of 10/21/2010

I only run a bios update to fix a specific issue. If you just went to A04 because it was newer, I wouldn't worry about the date thing. Now, if your correcting a specific issue, try reflashing A04. But understand, if the bios update fails, your motherboard is bricked.

To fix media strip buttons (touch sensitive) you should do firmware upgrade "FW7_X0D" which can be found and read about in detail here:

I hope this helps at least one related issue you're having.

Note: Upgrading from A05 to A06 DOES NOT solve the media strip buttons problem, only the firmware supplied above does. Good luck!!! (I personally struggled with the media control buttons issue for months before stumbling upon the solution which worked like a charm!)

I want to know that do I have to first download Visual Studio 2012 and then install Visual Studio 2012 update 1 or do I just have to install Visual Studio 2012 update 1 and will that cover all the features of VS 2012 ??Next I want to know that if there is a 64bit version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate, because I am yet unable to find it ? Some people are saying that Microsoft only released the 32bit version, is that true ?

Thank You.

A:Do I have to download Visual Studio 2012 and then update 1

Yes you'd have to install the main programme first and I don't believe it comes in 64-bit yet but there is a special version for Windows 8 here that supports both x86 and x64 architecture: Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows 8 | Microsoft Visual Studio

I don't use it myself so can't advise on how to get it working.

Hi
When i opened VS 2012 today it prompted me to download an update (update 2). When I pressed update button on VS, IE 10 opens up which in turn shows the message that "your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded".
 
I have no idea as to where this security settings resides. I have attached the file showing this message.
Help required.

Is anybody can help me?

Hi

I wondering what Crisis Recovery Disk do you have ?:|
In my experience the special disk is needed which is available only for ASP technician.
Therefore it?s necessary to contact the ASP in your country in order to reflash the BIOS.

In my opinion you shouldn?t not try any ?Crisis Recovery disks? which you fond in the net? this can lead to mobo damage?

Hello everyone I ama new user and i am coming up with this post as I couldn t find any kind of solution update BIOS B590 failure! Lenovo BIOS FLASH! Black... for my problem Recently I decided to do a reinstallation of my operating system which also previously was Windows Ultimate x The installation went as usual and after finishing it I went on to install all the latest drivers from the Lenovo site for my product When getting close to installing almost all the drivers i ve needed i Lenovo B590 BIOS update failure! BIOS FLASH! Black... stumbled upon a new version of the BIOS amnd the drivers and sfotware recommended for my laptop by the producer So i proceeded to install the upgrade restarted the computer when it prompted me to do so but after the so-called restart the laptop did not boot up as usual At first it was telling me to not do anything as the BIOS is being flashed and then it was telling me something about some sort of image processing things that i did not understand at the time i have never encountered anything like that After that my screen turned black I have not done anything for a few couple of minutes as i thought it was supposed to be like that but then i just force shut it down and unplugged the AC adapter When trying to boot it all up again the only thing i got was a black screen and nothing else After doing a little bit of research it appears that somehowm i ve managed to corrupt the bios on my laptop or something and nothing else would work at this point I tried to remove the BIOS battery and the ram and then put them all back tryed resetting the bios by taking out the battery but nothing would work I would be really thankful if anyone would be kind enough to point me one way or another as i do not know what to do at all nbsp Around the webz i found some way of creating a bootable usb flash drive where i would put a compatible version of BIOS from the site and then install it onto the laptop but i do not quite know how to do that properly either as the software they are pointing me to wincrisis is not working by any means

Hi,

I have a old Tecra 9100 with years of good service, and this is my first problem, but is a great one, after a forced reboot the screen shows a BIOS block 1 damaged message. I have tried to repair the BIOS upgrading to the last version I have found, the 1.6 one, but its a Windows version (to upgrade from a running Toshiba computer I think) and when I try to run it in another computer to generate a FDD and upgrade BIOS, I cant, beacuse a Toshiba common modules message.

Its there any BIOS diskette image-archive I can dowload to perform the BIOS upgrade in the BIOS?

Thanks in advance.

Hello

All you can find is stuff on Toshiba support page. I don't know where you live but try to contact nearest Toshiba authorized service provider.
They have access to Toshiba database and they can obtain all this for you. Make a call and ask for help. I am pretty sure they will help you to solve this BIOS issue.

Hello all, this is my first time posting here so please forgive any mistakes/oversights. I've just updated my Samsung laptop's system BIOS via their software update program, and my Nvidia GPU (GT 650m DDR3) no longer seems to work. The Nvidia control panel is still there, and it still gives me the option to select which programs use the GPU, but there is no GPU actitivity showing up. Also,I've tried playing Skyrim (which auto-detects the PC's graphics cards) , and the game no longer seems to detect the Nvidia GPU (just the Intel integrated graphics).

My laptop model is NP550PC7, with 6 gig of ram, and an i7 quad core CPU, and the OS is Window 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I've tried looking in the BIOS but I can't seem to find anything related to the GPU or display options. Any help or avice is much appreciated.

Hi,

Have you updated your GPU with the latest drivers?

Please navigate to:

Look under "Display Adapters"

Is the Nvidia GPU listed there? If so are there any yellow symbols etc?

On HP's advice, I just updated the BIOS on my laptop. It's currently stuck at Verifying New Bios Image, and it's at 100% - It's been stuck that way for a half-hour plus. Any advice?

Applications don't always migrate correctly to a new build. So sometimes, you are forced to re-install them.

This is not a problem with "the new windows", it's a problem with the app migration during the upgrade. Re-installing makes things correct again.

Hi BaselAS and welcome

If I were you and the computer is still under warranty I would call Dell first. I would hate to give you any advice that voided that.

If for some reason you cannot (or dont want to) call Dell it sounds like a HD problem.

Boot from the Windows 7 DVD and hit shift + F10 while booting. That will get you to a command prompt where you can run a check disk

CHKDSK /R /F:

Hi, I saw the new BIOS version 1.25 dated ?14?.?09?.?2016 appearing on Lenovos support site. I did not check the version I was having on my system before downloading the "new BIOS", so I started the installer and the tool told me I already have this BIOS version. msinfo32.exe tells me I am having BIOS 1.25 dated 13.07.2016. So apparently the BIOS was released already some time ago and I already flashed it to 1.25. So whats the point of re-releasing the 1.25? If there are any changes of todays version compared to the 1.25 released some time ago, is it worth flashing? If yes, how can I do this if the tool tells me I am already having the latest version and it does not let me override my BIOS? Thanks and best regards,Martin

I have a Lenonvo H50-55 desktop with an AMD A10-7800 APU (3.5GHz), 12GB RAM, 2 HDD's, and an Nvidia GTX 750 video card, running Windows10 Home x64. My current BIOS  version is IRKT54AUS, and the latest available version on Lenovo's update page for my machine is IRKT57AUS. When I try to flash my BIOS from the downloaded update file, I get the error message in the subject. I am starting everything with Admin privileges, but that makes no difference. If it's a Lenovo machine with stock BIOS, why am I getting an "unknown vendor" message? Inquiring minds want to know  TIA!

Hello,

a friend gave me his HP DV6500 Notebook to fix it. He said it made an update and then for hours nothing happened. He shut it and started again.

I could see that it tried to recover 2 times. The second time it was successful but it somehow resetted or returned the Vista to a fresh install!!! His data was locked in a previous User account, I backed it up on a usb-stick with a linux live cd.

I can't make a reinstall because now a bluescreen always appears even when I boot from Vista DVD.

ntoskrnl.exe corrupt when try to boot vista in the normal way.
How can I fix that without being able to use the repair option of the DVD?
Sorry, the title of the thread is wrong. I figured out already that the BIOS version is for an Intel. So everything is ok with the BIOS actually.
 

A:Solved: HP DV6500 Notebook wrong BIOS update by HP update function?

Ok, I could fix it after following instructions from this page:

http://www.delmartian.com/nullpoint...0C1F5-0xC1F5-C1F5-BSOD-CLFS.SYS-KB946084.html

The Txf-log had to be removed and afterwards I was able to use the repair function of the Vista DVD again.

A:Windows Update INCLUDES Motherboard Drivers and BIOS Update on M2A-VM?

I have the same board on another pc.

You only need to download and install only that which would make your setup current.

You really only need to update the bios if you will be moving up to a newer processor that is not currently supported by the current bios or if the newer bios fixes a known problem.

You need the latest motherboard chipset driver. (I would install this first if you haven't already)

You need the latest LAN driver.

The audio driver you can either download from Asus or from RealTek.

I currently have a Studio 1737 with a 500GB SSD, Windows 10, and recently bought a Studio 1749 with a 750GD SATA HD, Windows 10.

I'm wondering if it's possible to just switch the SSD with the SATA to the new laptop, or if I should go through the process of making a recovery USB, install the SSD to the 1749, reformat and reinstall Windows 10.  
I'm not really relishing the idea of losing all my programs with the reformat, especially since I have long since lost the registration keys, etc. for most of the programs.
Any suggestions?

There is apparently no way of showing if CAPS LOCK is on or off on my new Dell 1555 (I use the laptop keyboard). This gives real problems entering for example passwords where the text is encrypted.
Is it possible to show if CAPS LOCK is on or off in the Notification Area in the bottom right of the Windows screen (Windows Vista 64 bit) ?
Does anyone have the same laptop but with a CAPS LOCK notification of any sort ?

I have the same Laptop, but also no notification, it's quite irksome! However a colleage of mine has the 17" version and it's got a nice little LED next to the caps lock key... a design flaw or rather "we forgot" in the 15.6" I suppose... and when you look at your laptop layout, there's actually plent of room for a little LED somewhere, not like they ran out of space!

Hey peeps, I'm looking to purchase some studio headphones for Laptop and Ipod use. I'm not trying to spend a lot of money, but i would want something that sounds great for music. I've been looking at a few pages, but i'm not sure if i'm looking at the correct ones, the head phones that have called my attention were the Sony MDR-V6 Studio Monitor Series Stereo Headphones and can be found here: FRYS.com*|*Sony
I'd like to know your exp. with these if you have owned a pair. I'm looking for clean crisp sounding audio that has no problem picking up low frequency's. I listen to Hip hop/rap, trance, and other types of music. feedback would be appreciated thanks!

A:Looking to purchase studio headphones, Sony MDR-V6 Studio Monitorgood?

I've always been a fan of the Sennheiser HD series
Sennheiser USA - Dynamic Stereo Headphones - Around / Over Ear Headphones - High Sound Quality - Audiophile - Personal Audio

They also will supply replacement chords and even drivers should one go bad.

I actually have a pair of those sony's the bass is hollow and has no punch to it at all. I actually have a 35 dollar plantronics headset that has better sound. The chord tangles easily and the pads started to come apart eventually. ...at least they're apparently cheaper now when I bought mine around 4-5 years ago, they wanted 120 for them. ...oh also I had to cut splice and tape the chord 3 times before I finally retired them.
All of this occurred in about the space of a year.

edit: wasn't paying attention to your price range.
The HD280's are decent, not quite in the audiophile class, but decent and can be purchased for the same neighborhood in cost.
http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-.../dp/B000065BPB
that was just the first link I came by I have seen them for 80.

I called dell they told me in not so many words my motherboard was Fried and they would not replace it.

Dell just saying it's a "possibility" the motherboard might need to be replace. No one can tell you that motherboard is definite "Fried" without first looking at the system.
What is the system model number and version of windows before upgrading to windows 10? Example: Dell Inspiron 3543, windows 10
You're able to boot into BIOS(F2 key) and diagnostic (F12 key) ?

2. Power on computer, quickly start tapping F2 key ( BIOS) or F12 key( BIOS) continuously

hi, i have been hitting my head for long to get the answer of this question... and got no sophisticated answer in my google search, hopefully u guys could help me out..

well, they ask for BIOS UPDATE, gather your bios version n brand name, go for appropriate site nd have update..?
but the question that arise in my mind..(being tech student and encounter this bootstrap loader numerous times) is
BIOS IS A "ROM" CHIP, and so we must only be able to read from it..
then how is it possible to write on it and update the BIOS and more over, in my college books i find.. if u want to update your bios then u have to change your entire chip or sometime even motherboard

hopefully i will find sufficient answer.. thanx for anyhelp

A:Bios update after update to Windows 10

Hi: You can pull the DOS based flash file folder out of the BIOS package, copy just the contents of the DOS flash folder to a USB flash drive formatted with the FAT file system. Plug the flash drive in a usb port, restart the PC, tap the ESC key to get the menu of options. Select the F10 System setup option to gain access to the BIOS. Select the File menu>Flash system ROM command.  Select the USB flash drive. The PC will see the files on the flash drive.  Follow the on screen prompts to update the BIOS. That way it makes no difference what operating system you are running. One very important note...I have read the installing the latest BIOS 2.29 causes issues with W10. There is a forum post regarding that... http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/HP-Compaq-8200-Elit...I am running v2.28 on my HP 8200 Elite CMT, and have no issues at all on W10. I read that post and decided not to update the BIOS to v2.29.

During the update process it showed an error: "ME FW Update Failed: Internal error: FWU_Buffer " - please see the photo below. Although the update failed on the Management Engine part, it still boots up and running OK. I tried couple of times to update the BIOS, and each time I got the same error. I tried to flash the A12 and A11 BIOS as well, A12 gives same error, and A11 has the same Management Engine version hence no use.
Any help on this is very much appreciated!

Why update I did firmware on my P B Deluxe to and after the restart windows loaded fine but off only Why did I update my BIOS? one of the HDs I realised it was because I hadn t changed the quot Configure SATA as quot to RAID in the BIOS so RAID wasn t in effect I changed the setting restarted and got the ntldr error Bummer I then put the windows disc in loaded the RAID drivers went into recovery console and copied ntldr exe and ntdetect com across to c NB It didn t ask me if I wanted to overwrite the existing files I also did fixboot Restarted the computer and the error s still there I then decided to rollback to the BIOS I had before I updated - - so I used ASUS EZ Flash All worked changed quot Configure SATA as quot setting to RAID again - ntldr error still there So I then booted into the windows CD again and ran fixmbr in the recovery console Restarted and the ntldr error disappeared and was replaced by the windows loading screen overjoyed but then quot autochk program not found - skipping AUTOCHECK quot appeared What the hell do I do now This all started because I forgot to change the RAID setting when updating BIOS Any thoughts appreciated Jamie One more comment - could be useful - when the computer first restarted after I updated the BIOS and loaded into windows it said it had quot Found new hardware quot and then installed my hard drives and told me to restart This is when I realised I hadn t changed the RAID setting I restarted then restared again and changed the RAID setting nbsp

anas88, may I ask why you want to update your BIOS? HP's website will provide updates for your BIOS, when looking at the notes for BIOS version you should only update it if you are having problems.

help!
 

A:BIOS update help!!!

The first question to be answered is "why do you need to update the BIOS"?

BIOS updating is not like installing newer drivers, you should only ever update a BIOS to fix a known hardware issue that you are actually experiencing, and for which the motherboard maker has released a fix for that is detailed in the release notes.

BIOS updating is not a recreational activity, it is actually a risky process as there is a reasonably significant chance that it can go wrong, effectively (economically) destroying the motherboard.

I installed the newest 2012 BIOS update for my pavilion a6620f. It has Windows 10 OS. Everything runs smoothly until the restart. When it restarts, it says that the computer will boot with default options instead, and the only option I get is to press F10 or let the computer continue booting. Both options lead to a default boot. Do I need to downgrade from windows 10 to windows 7/vista in order to install this update? because it says that the update is for those versions of windows, although not explicitly. Looking for solutions that will let me install the BIOS. EDIT: When it boots up, it says something about a checksum and gives me the option to wait it out or press F10.

I was using the auto update and it pulled up an update for the bios from V1.18 to 1.10 after the download a message popped up saying that it failed. Any ideas as to what the problem may be?

A:I was trying to update my bios from V1.18 to 1.10 ...

v1.18 to v1.10 is a downgrade, not upgrade. by the way, what's your PC model?

How do I know if the BIOS update worked on my computer? I can't see if the update worked or not. What is the latest version of the BIOS for my computer? I downloaded the BIOS update from the HP Support Assistant on my computer. After downloading the new BIOS and then after the restart, it doesn't show whether or not the update was installed. There is no information on the update at all anymore. The BIOS update does not show in the "action log" in the HP Support Assistant, so it makes me think the update didn't work? My product number is P0A42AV. The current Bios information shows as :F.08-06/16/2016.

The system told me there was a Bios update and I should connect the power lead before proceeding, which I did.  After a few minutes the screen went blank and I've now been waiting around a hour with an hour with nothing happening. The keyboard light is on and the on / off button is illuminated but doesn't work - I can't switch off.  Does anyone have any suggestions  please ?

It is generally a risky thing to do. I have updates bioses without a problem, but if something goes wrong (say a Windows crash) and the update is interupted, then your system will no longer boot.

If a sprout is factory reset back to win 8.1 from win 10. Does the bios need changing before it is updated back to win 10?

A:Bios update

Kate, welcome to the forum. No, if you didn't change the settings before upgrading to Win 10, you should not have to make any changes.  You should run HP and Windows Updates once Win 10 is installed to assure that the software and drivers are up to date. I have reverted back to Win 8.1 from Win 10 several times without any problems.  Win 10 has FINALLY been updated enough to make it stable. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

A:How do i Update my BIOS

When going to update the bios on any board usually only when a problem is being seen not simply just toss the latest on because it's newer you first review the board's own user manual for the instructions seen there. Some boards have an online option for direct updating seen at post time.

Many updates will be the Winflash type where you simply download the update and run it while booted in Windows. The old days of booting up from a 3 1/2" floppy disk and making sure to copy one particular file onto the root of the hard drive as well as on the floppy are gone.

That's where you had to type the new name exactly by type "old version - ren - new version" without the dashes of course. The "ren" stood for the rename command. First looking over information on how to backup the present bios is advised for most and especially for someone who has never flashed a bios or run any bios updates. In case of any mishap with the newer version the old one can be restored.

A:BIOS Update -

Yes jump to most recent, version 2101
Most bios utilities have two installers, one windows based and one not, the windows based one for your board/bios is extremely old and not for win 7 so i would not recommend it

Check the manual for your board (download link at bottom of list beloe bios) and it should explain more about install methods

not sure if this is the right place but, here goes, i have an NEC Ready 9945 that had windows 98, but iupgraded to windows 2000, i wanted to use the sleep function in windows 2000, but after scowering the internet i found out that i need ACPI for sleep in windows 2000, so i looked for an update to my bios to no avail, my bios string is: 61-1104-001169-00101111-071595-440BX/ZX-1440b000-H, i do not know what bios i have, because when the computer starts it says American megatrends Bios, but when i tried to flasdh my bios, the flasher said not AMI Bios, NEC bios, so i do not know what i need to do, or if i can even update my bios, so the question is can i update my bios, and if so how? if not, then i will just live with it.
 

A:BIOS update?

If you don't know what BIOS you have don't flash it. If this is a production machine you would need to get any BIOS updates from the manufacturers site.
