I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 running Windows XP. I am trying to upgrade to Windows 7, but it tells me I first need to update my BIOS.
I downloaded the BIOS file and have tried running it, but it gives me an error saying that I need to plug in my AC adapter and battery before running the update; both seem to be fine. I have also gone into the command line and used
/forceit /nopause /forcetype in different combinations but none work to skip this problem.
I can't write to a floppy disk as some people have recommended, because my laptop doesn't have a floppy disk drive. Dell customer support ends after the two year warranty so I am desperate to try to find help on fixing this update problem. Any suggestions?
