I need help please to download the bios for my HP pavilion dv6500. I have gone to the download site:
I have navigated to the download site with the actual laptop. I have entered my serial number and after 20 minutes all I could see was please wait.
I have also used another PC to enter the information and the website detects the OS of the other PC and doesn't allow me to enter Vista and so cannot search.
I have tried to install HP support assistant but it won't install on Vista.
Is there an easier way to find the bios?
Your advice would be appreciated
Go to Solution.
HP retires support for consumer class PC's that are 10 or more years old.
What processor does your dv6500 have...AMD or Intel.
Once you let me know that info, I will find the last BIOS update HP released for your notebook from the HP driver FTP site.
Thank you for your reply. The sticker on the front says Intel Centrino core duo.
You're very welcome, Chris.
Here are the BIOS info and exe links for the last BIOS update HP released for the dv6500 notebooks with the Intel processors...
Thank you very much for your help. I have installed the bios update and the laptop runs fine.
Glad to have been of assistance.
