Yes you are correct that model does have the Seagate 500 GIG HDD, the firmware update did give me a considerable performance boost. I do not see any mention of BIOS and VBIOS changes, if you are going from a 'factory' setup you should upgrade to 213 for BIOS and use one of the VBIOS mentioned in Chastity's Driver Reference sticky.

I am hoping my G73JH-A1 returns from being repaired today and plan to follow these procedures as well. I am hoping the BIOS is already updated, but I am guessing I will still have to upgrade the VBIOS. It seems there are several questions as to how to do this. Is the version in Chastity's sticky post still the correct one?

Yes Chastity's 2 versions are both compatible with the lastest ATI Video drivers. I am using the modded version for extened battery life, and am getting over 2 hours battery life with it while doing surfing and email..
