hi, i have a dell studio 1735 laptop which is working ok except for a charge problem which can be periodically fixed by removing battery and pressing power button for 30 secs etc. it is running a bios version 04 which i imagine may need updating and may solve problem. how do i do this and do you think it will work. ta

You don't say what the charge problem is so difficult to express an opinion.

My view is leave the BIOS alone

What makes you come to that conclusion?

When you remove Battery and press power button it discharges Capacitors on the Motherboard, how is a Upgrade going to do that

At the very least, if you really think you should upgrade the BIOS, check the Dell website. See if your's is a known problem and see if a BIOS update will actually fix it.
