what system number? Nothing will be erased your bios will simply be updated to the latest version adding support or fixes for new hardware.

what are you using to flash your bios are you trying to do it from within windows? or are you using a bootable rom file.

your may be experiancing issues because you need to put the downloaded file onto bootable media

EDIT.....ive just downloaded and checked the bios file for your laptop (the vista version there isnt one for win 7) looking at the readme file it does suggest running as admin but it may just not work cos its for vista

you could try turning off UAC
