DELL Vostro 3460 firmware upgrade error
Posted on 2014-08-23
Please I need help to upgrade firmware of Dell Vostro 3460 (Phoenix Firmware).
Actually this equipment present a problem to start.
It´s necessary to push down the "start key" several times until appears suddenly Dell logo, then urgently pressing F12 the "options window" appears and its possible to select Hard Disk, USB driver, etc to start it up.
From manufacturer this notebook came with FW version 3460_A13.
From Dell Support web page I`ve downloaded all off FW´s available.
I used DOS and Windows methods to do the upgrade, but always I received the next message:
Error 216 - Failed to read Bios from ROM Status = 1604
