Inspiron 1526 A16 SLIC 2.1
#1
I can't find if anyone has done an Inspiron 1526 SLIC 2.1 BIOS. Google, Yahoo, even the search for this forum keep "correcting" searches to 1525. It's only one number off, close enough, right?  Angry 

1526 = AMD. Last BIOS revision is A16
1525 = Intel. Last BIOS revision is A17

Motherboards are interchangeable between the two models. Intel version can support faster CPUs but is stuck with 965 chipset video. AMD version has discrete GPU but also uses shared RAM.

Here's the 1526 BIOS, already SLIC 2.0 due to the only OS Dell sold it with being 32bit Vista, with optional downgrade to 32bit XP, despite it being a 64bit computer.

Thanks much! Smile Will be a big help, especially if I get more Inspiron 1526 laptops to repair. Had to replace the mainboard and CPU because someone tripped over the cord, broke the power jack and fried it.
