Default Re: Inspiron 530 bios dump needed

EDIT: My apologies to you stj, i fucked up.I was using some dell bios extractor software and it pulled the bios from a random folder in my temp files,i never noted what size the bios should be,just assumed it was ok.Ive attatched the right ones this time...hopefully.

I found some more info, according to this dell article there are 10 different 530 variants: https://www.dell.com/support/article...347263?lang=en

From a post over at bios-mods the different bios versions for each one:

530: BIOS chip (NVRAM) 16 Mb(G33/ICH9 chipset, uses BIOS v.1.0.18)
530a/530c: BIOS chip (NVRAM) 8 Mb(G33/ICH9 chipset, uses BIOS v.1.0.18)
530b/530d: BIOS chip (NVRAM) 8 Mb(G31/ICH7 chipset, uses BIOS v.1.0.2)

530s: BIOS chip (NVRAM) 16 Mb(G33/ICH9 chipset, uses BIOS v.1.0.18)
530sa/530sc: BIOS chip (NVRAM) 8 Mb(G33/ICH9 chipset, uses BIOS v.1.0.18)
