I have a dell OptiPlex 390 I am re-purposing at work. Surprisingly, I noticed the bios was A0. The dell site is up to A11. However, I cannot upgrade to A11 until I upgrade to A02. I go back to the dell site to get A02 and get "Internal server error". I called and they refuse to help with computer out of warranty. Anyone else know what I can get this old Bios so I can upgrade to the newest bios?

Interesting. If you click on the link - it will fail. But if you check with Google search the follow "Dell Optiplex 390 a02 bios download" then it lets the site open. See attached screen shot.
If you do not get it loaded - I can download and share the flash file for you.
