Hello everyone!! This question may be old but I spent several hours researching previous answers on this forum and found nothing reasonably recent that fits my exact situation.
So please don't think me lazy, and if there is a previous post that will help, I will gladly refer to it if someone can put up a link to it. If not, any info at all will be most appreciated!!
I have a Pavilion dv9000 laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate. I bought it secondhand and recently became aware that many of it's drivers need updating, badly. Problem is, the HP Support and Drivers page provides no drivers for this model that are compatible with Windows 7.
In particular I believe I need a newer BIOS driver, as System Information says:
"BIOS Version/Date -- Hewlett-Packard F.22, 8/17/2007"
Is there a newer driver for my system out there? Many thanks for all help you can provide.

To redirect you to correct BIOS link, please provide the model number or product number of the notebook.
Also, here is the link where Daniel has given all the drivers needed for DV9000 models:

Many thanks, Vidya, for your prompt reply.
Things get weird when it comes to the model of this laptop:
-HP Support Assistant calls it dv9500
-The imprint on the machine itself says dv9000
-HP Support website auto-detects it as dv9640ca
If it helps any, the actual product number given by HP Support Assistant is: GS752UA#ABC.
And in regards to the link to Daniel's outstanding post for Win 7 drivers, I may be blind but was unable to find on it an entry for BIOS driver udates...
Thanks again for your help!

Enetr BIOS setup by tapping/holding the F10 key immediately after powering on the laptop. Once into BIOS reset to Default settings-usually by tapping F9, check bottom of screen for correct key. Save and Exit to see if any change.

You can go to HP Pavilions Website and download or even microsofts and download the latest System BIOS Update Button. Once you have downloaded that. It will alert you anything you are due for a System Download.
