Let's see if I've got this right. You so-called friend opened up the chassis
and pried out the BIOS chip from its socket, then managed to lose it? If so, I
hope the person is no longer your friend, or maybe he/she pays for a
replacement.

Really, at this point, the most straightforward and likely replacement is the
entire motherboard. There is some small chance that someone with the tools to
burn a new flash BIOS chip will respond. And the cost of a replacement BIOS
chip may well exceed the cost of an entire board.

Once you have a replacement motherboard installed, it is pretty easy to update
the BIOS on the board with the latest from the Dell web site... Ben Myers
