Updating dell d620 bios

The BIOS showed it now having 4GB of RAM, it did have 2GB of RAM, not as advertised.

If you’re in a similar situation or wish to install Windows 7 because you do not like Windows 8, here are the three steps you need to change in order to enable Legacy Mode.

The three steps have to be made in the correct order or else you will get messages saying the change cannot be made. Under Secure Boot Enable, switch the option to Disabled and hit Apply.

If you do ever upgrade the cpu in either of them ever make sure to get new thermal pads for it and thermal past ."Core 2 Duo, T7400 or T7600 ( 2.16 or 2.33, 4MB, 667) for $30 - $50 US." That is alot higher then the price of the cpu here in the USA .

OR, as I chose to do in the end, I bought a salvage/as is Dell D630 ( T7500 2.20 GHz, 4MB Cache, 800 MHz FSB), it had no RAM, no HDD, no battery, no power supply. From the pictures on ebay, it appeared in good condition for a salvage, it had a good screen (1280 x 800) with Nvidia graphics with 128 MB RAM. I have the Dock, as well, so that also fits the D630.

The old D620 has the higher resolution 1440 x 900 screen. The screen on the D630 seems brighter than the D620, so at present I'll see how it goes getting used to adjusting things which look a bit larger on the slightly lower resolution.
