Be very careful with updating the bios on a laptop as i killed the wifes laptop by doing this. Very few places can repair this and those that do are very expensive.
As for the others just hook it up to the INTERNET and just do windows update. This should find what it needs.

Updating the bios on a dell is very simple, and if there is an update available, it will be on dell's site and it will have easy to follow instructions on how to install it, its usually just an installer file anyway.

I did tje bios update, A04 I think it was. That was simple. Anyway, do I need SP2 - someone else mentioned it?

chances are vista will download sp2 itself if auto updates are on.
