I booted into the UBCD4win (which ran Windows XP, in 32-bit mode).I then ran the file, and successfully flashed the BIOS to version 1.0.13. Rather than rehash the directions to make a UBCD4win, there is a link to their website below.NOTE: Creating this bootable CD using UBCD will require the installation disk for the 32-bit version of Windows XP, and can take a bit of time to create and burn to CD/DVD (maybe 30-60 minutes? But, it works, it’s cool, and having a UBCD around can prove quite useful!Click here to be whisked away, and view instructions.
I decided to zero out the 20650 block in the hex editor and then pasted in the new longer 20655 microcode at the same starting address of 0x1A6060 as the out of date code. The Inspiron range mainly competes against computers such as Acer's Aspire, Asus' Transformer Book Flip, Vivo Book and Zenbook, HP's Pavilion and Envy, Lenovo's Idea Pad and Toshiba's Satellite.
