Windows 7: BSOD on a 2 day old install!

Just as a refresher my problem is BSODS only occur when the laptop is not plugged into the ac.
Firmware is BIOS correct? I would love to update my bios, but I have no clue how to go about finding the newest version so that this would be fixed, I used the hp one but that was dirt old. like 2008 or something.

Firmware is BIOS on the device itself, as opposed to software, like drivers.

Drivers are a type of BIOS, just to clarify. We don't hear this very often though; BIOS is usually just used for the system BIOS; the BIOS chip on the motherboard.

Your BIOS is dated 10/5/2010. I'm not sure whether that means May 10, 2010, or October 5, 2010.

What is the exact model of your computer? There are many Pavillion DV7s. Here's the page: Product search results

Updating your BIOS may help, and in any case, it's worth a shot.

It looks like you're in luck with your BIOS update. There is a new one for you, which I recommend you install.
