You cannot update the BIOS if you are running Windows 7.
The BIOS update I provided in the above discussion is only good if your notebook your PC has an AMD processor.
If you can't open the links, I have corrected them to work.

You're very welcome.
Yes, I recommend you install the supported Vista operating system to update the BIOS.
I don't know what happens on the v3500 models, but I know that on the dv6500 models with the AMD processors if you update the BIOS using Windows 7 or newer, the PC becomes nothing more than a paperweight.
I'm afraid the same thing would happen to your notebook too.
