BIOS update for Inspiron 1720

This question is not answered


I am in the process of trying to update my Windows operating system from Vista to Windows 7.   My laptop is an Inspiron 1720 and I keep getting the same error message:  "install update - BIOS version:  Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 AO3; BIOS date: 20070816000000.000000+000"   Can someone please help me with this problem?   It is keeping me from updating my operating system to Windows 7.  Thank you.
