Default Dell E1505

There is a cable in a side panel door in the battery bay.
The cable seems to connect straight to the motherboard, What exactly is this cable used for? Flashing a bios? Read up on it.. something to do with bluetooth?

Could you get a closer picture of it? Hard to tell from this distance.

The wire is connected to the motherboard, it's sorta "hidden" behind a back panel in the battery bay. It's not connected to the bluetooth module because well.. I don't have one lol..




Here is where it is with the clip on panel removed.

Ah I see. So you want more information before you plug it back in?

edit: If you're afraid of messing up your software I doubt anything will happen. To flash a BIOS you have to pretty much run the file off a floppy or a CD. The worse thing that might happen is Windows giving you a pop-up saying, "Windows has detected new hardware."
