Hi:

 

The parts list doesn't tell me what processor your notebook has...AMD or Intel.

 

They use different BIOS files.

 

Please let me know that info, and I will post the links to the applicable update.

You're very welcome.

 

I have some good news and some bad news.

 

First the bad news...since your notebook has an AMD processor and you are running W7 on it, you cannot update the BIOS unless you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista.

 

If you try and update the BIOS on a dv6000 when running Windows 7, with an AMD processor, you will permanently wreck the notebook.

 

Here are the links to the BIOS info and exe files.

 

Install XP or Vista and then you can update the BIOS.

 

Info:  F.43     April 6, 2010.

Exe file:
