Updating a dell optiplex gx1 bios
Actually, there is usually one or two ways per computer.Different manufacturers have different ways to access BIOS.To view full specification of your Model, click on your System Model Name, this will show the full system memory specification, maximum memory, memory slots, memory installation help and more.I remotely support several offices that run all Dell machines and it would make my life a lot easier if there was a way to update the BIOS of a machine remotely without any user interactions..Do I have to formatt or something before I use the Win XP CD? I don't think this Dell came with XP, (my best friend gave it to me when she got a new PC) my friend had memory added and it used to have Win ME, but I can't find anything about Win ME on here.
Browse our organized Dell Display / Monitor device driver database below to find the driver that fits your specifications, or scan your PC to update your drivers automatically with one click to be assured that your driver updates support your specific Dell Display / Monitor model.My old Compaq had a Factory Restore CD that pretty much did everything for you.This Dell is refurbished and Win XP seems to be the only os because it is not in my Add/Remove list.The BIOS is usually stored on a ROM chip on the motherboard which stores hardware setup information for the computer. You need to see the initial display screen to get into the BIOS.Without the BIOS you would have to reconfigure your hardware every time you reboot the computer. Press the "F2" key when you see the initial screen displaying the BIOS provider information.
But, yes, I have the CD and product key and can't find any evidence of the previous version of Win ME It is just a copy of Win Xp, not a recovery.
