Hi,

I was able to open Dell Inspiron 2330 BIOS verion A14 using AMIBCP 4.53.

However, the display is kind of messed up. Please see the attached image. Anyone knows what went wrong and how it can be fixed?

Here is the BIOS link:

I tried early versions of the 2330 BIOS, none of them can be correctly recognized by AMIBCP 4.53. There is no such problem when I opened Inspiron 23*2*0 BIOS or HP ENVY 700-210xt BIOS. The HP BIOS is even newer than the Dell BIOS -- the HP BIOS is for Haswell chipset but the Dell 2330 BIOS is for Ivy Bridge chipset.

Thanks in advance.

Looks like Dell customized some stuff a bit too much. The HP bios may be newer but the bios core may be older even though it has support for a newer chipset.
