Dell Inspiron 620/Vostro 260 NO Bios for AHCI

Dell Inspiron 620/Vostro 260 NO Bios for AHCI

Interestingly, I couldn't even update the bios without the INTEL drivers.

Check in the Device Manager, the machine uses the ATA drivers not AHCI drivers

AND will not install the INTEL RST drivers.

Why is this?

I tried to upgrade to the version of the Bios A04, but this made no difference.


I did some research and discovered that the chipset in this system, the H61, simply does not support AHCI or RAID. There is no way to activate for a reason. :(

Wish I had known this. The value of this system really went down the tube if you intend to launch an SSD in there.

  • Position of the jumpers pin on a MB from MIH61R Dell (Inspiron 620)

    Hello and help!

    I bought my wife a new Dell Inspiron 620. I was dusting from the inside and come off a jumper connector. It's a PIN of five (5) labeled PWRSW1 on the outside edge towards the end of the DIMM. The MB is a MIH61R. Can someone tell me the proper position for the rider on PWRSW1?


    Let's save a nano-second...

    Need to ask if you are sure the rider was actually this 5 header pin motherboard? Could he have come off some other header?

    I just ping Dell-Chris M to see if he can get some specific information for you...

  • Reader of CD/DVD of Dell Inspiron 620 will not be open.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the drive, and made sure my drivers are up to date, they are, same problem. I need major help.

    Whenever the CD/DVD cannot be purchased, it is longer practice of using the average pin hole. But this should be done when the computer is turned off as ejection outwardly replaces the internal control of the drive. Therefore, it is very likely that the problem arises.
    You can try this:
    Restart the PC-> press F2 when you see the Dell logo-> control if the drive is displayed in the summary of the BIOS settings screen. If this is not present, contact Dell support - the drive must be replaced.
    If it is present, try to press the eject button to see if the come out. If so, leave the BIOS settings, start Windows and check. The drivers will be installed by Windows in most of the cases, and if not, you can download it from Dell from the link mentioned by Manasa Sirahatti. In addition, if you use third-party programs to burn the disc, try to uninstall it and check. If it works, and then reinstall the program.
    The problem will be solved in most cases, otherwise, the disc must be replaced.

  • Dell Inspiron PC delay start before BIOS, how to we deny this?

    Recently, we received 3 new Dell inspiron PC and then priming them to 2 min 5s before the computer starts obviously the boot (reached the BIOS screen). We have no idea how to solve this problem, if anyone knows please let us.

    We have: check the start menu and the trunk so seems to be in the right order, have fragmented off the hard drive, updated the operating system Windows windows 10 7, checked for several installed operating systems, looked at the system configuration files and have not found something wrong, as well as other things that I can't think right now. (no obvious hardware incompatibilities found)

    Windows 10 pro

    Inspiron 3847

    Intel core i3-4160

    8 GB of RAM

    64-bit operating system

    MSI G-Force GT 730 2 GB video card

    If it comes with Windows 7 installed, it won't win 10 installed also. Apparently, you have right to downgrade to Win 7 on a machine to win 10. If Dell installed Win 7 and included a drive to Win 10 installation for convenience, in case you have decided to use Win 10.

    Since you upgraded to Win 10, have you installed all the drivers of 10 straight Win of the page support for this model?

    You said that the boot order is 'correct '. This means that your hard drive is listed first?

    Go into the BIOS and look for the USB startup and - if all options - make sure they're ready to USB -NOT start.

    What happens if you unplug everything except the keyboard, monitor and mouse. For example, no printer, no cable network, etc.?

    Using a keyboard/mouse wired or wireless? And are they connected to the back USB ports?

    Is this something to run at startup, for example an anti-malware scanner?

    You may need to contact Dell Technical Support for assistance. They'll cover relating to software for the first 30 days of the invoice date (not delivery date). If it is hardware, they are going to cover for at least 1 year.

  • Dell Inspiron 1545: Can not scan wireless for my laptop

    I have a Dell Laptop Inspiron 1545 it is my main computer. I also have a Dell Dimension 4600 series desk top that I use very rarely. My HP printer D110 all-in-one is set up for these two. My problem is that I can't scan to the Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop wireless to the printer. When I try the following message appears on the printer screen: try to may computer or see the documentation press OK.

    The last time I used the top of desk, which was a year ago, I was able to scan to it from the printer. However, I think that the printer and the computer are connected, but am not certain. I am able to print wireless from the Dell Inspiron 1545 to the printer without any problems.

    I have DSL.

    Any help is very appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hi @BlackSheepFan,

    From your description, I think it would be better to remove the software, clean up a bit of the computer, and then reinstall the software. Please complete all of the steps below in the order and let me know the results.

    1. Hold down the Windows Logo key () on the keyboard and the 'R' to open the dialog box run, type %temp%
    2. Delete all files and folders in the temp folder. Choose Skip if all pop ups seem to say all files cannot be deleted
    3. The new software - uninstall the printer software Instructions
    4. Once the uninstall is complete, reboot the computer
    5. Follow these steps to reset the registry settings and options for Windows Installer.

  • Dell Inspiron 530 s updated... for the first time.

    I want to upgrade the CPU, graphics card and ram. I'm new on this but my bios is 1.0.5 I don't know he should be updated... it has a processor intel celeron 420 @ 1.6 ghz and 1 GB of ram, videocard stock, I found a compatible 400w PSU. Where would I start? Bios upgrade I don't need a computer game leveling mid but this thing is terrible slow... money is not a problem, but I paid $100 for the whole pc. I wouldn't spend $200 to upgrade


    You are welcome.

    BIOS update instructions are on the download page of Dell BIOS.

    Follow the procedures carefully, as a corrupted or failed BIOS flash may "brick" the motherboard.

  • Addition of DIMMs for Inspiron 620

    I have an Inspiron 620 with 2 DIMMS of 2 GB. 4 GB of ram is too small now. To upgrade to 8 GB, I need to replace DIMM 4 GB DIMMs? In other words, there are only two slots? (I never opened the thing at the top).

    Thank you.



    Another question: it has been a LOONG while given that I have newly introduced a chip of RAM to a computer. Once I remove the old DIMM and add new and power the machine back on it, it automatically detects the change in RAM, or I have to go in this screen of settings?


    Yes, the memory is compatible with the Inspiron 620.

  • Inspiron 620-7750 Radeon with 450W power supply installed does not start


    I have looked EVERYWHERE online and on the forum and have seen several posts on this topic and still not found a solution that works.  I have a Dell Inspiron 620

    • I5Intel Processor2nd Gen Core i5-2310 / 2.9 GHz
    • Memory8 GB / 8 GB (max)
    • Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit Edition operating mode
    • Optical DriveDVD±RW
    • Graphics technology ProcesseurIntel HD Graphics 2000 dynamic video memory 5.0
    • Integrated graphics controller

    Recently, I buy a Powercolor Radeon 7750 graphics card I have installed the drivers, uninstalled the current Intel Graphics driver from Device Manager and then install the new card.  I of course unplugged the PSU got rid of and left in power has failed to myself and plugged into the PCI-E.  After I tired to turn on but it does not start.  Fans begin to turn, including on the graphics card, but nothing comes up on the monitor and it won't start.  When I unplugged the 7750 card it starts very well?

    At first I thought that it was not powered ridiculously horrible 300w PSU they put so that I have upgraded to an a 450w.  Everything works with the new power supply installed without the card, but as soon as I plug the new map, he continues to not start as before installing the card.  I have searched and tried things for 2 days now and CAN NOT find a solution.  I know that the 620 does not access the menu of the BIOS under settings in advance who does not help (don't know why Dell would never think it was a good idea!) so I can't change anything in there.

    Please, any help would be fantastic!

    Thanks in advance!

    The card is a bad card.  There should be ZERO problems with the supply of the stock 305 w and a 7750.
