K heres my prob i ordered a new Li-ion battery. Just got it and i read everything (not much) that was to do... along with the battery came a CD wich has a Bios upgrade.... they adviced to install this before changing the battery ( its another type but compatible with the laptop).
So i folowed their advice...And now im here praying someone's got an answer to my problems..
After installing the Bios ugrade (wich went fine) i inserted the batttery , everythings oke so far.
I want to rebot wich also works but then windows loads starts threading me saying you need a driver for who-knows-what (probably the battery - although that seems fairly strange to me).
Anyway i install the things it asks.
Before doing all this ii had a resolution of 1200 * you know what.
Now its down to 640*400 and i cant change it..
Windows (98 SE) says that my video adapter isnt the right one...although i just installed the latest drivers...
When i check the display adapter its functioning according to windows just fine.
Does anybody ever had a similar problem wich also involved some bios upgrade...
And o yeah when i try to change the resolution it says you have to reboot i reboot and then he can do two things:either just dont boot at all, or boot but dont changge the resolution.
print_to_brains("DO NOT INSTALL THE BIOS UPGRADE!!!);
Thx in advance ,would really appreciate any help.
P.S: the cd that came along has a program wich can test evry single hardware thing on the laptop. I alrdy ran every test and it passed them all, so apparently i havent done anything that wrong wich could'of caused hardware damage.
AAh just great now windows is complaining about the Infrared thingie on this laptop. I feel like suing Dell for this.
