Default BIOS Show Laptop's Model Part Number Wrongly

I have an HP Presario v6000tx running under XP SP2.

Laptop's Part Number on Invoice and on Bottom is GQ362AV.

BIOS states Presario V6000 (GB115AV).

GB115A is the P/N of the installed Intel Graphic Accelerator.

What do I lose in not correcting the BIOS?

Will I be getting the wrong updates from HP and/or Microsoft?

How can I correct the BIOS?

I tried setting the BIOS to defaults.

I also used a SP from HP and flashed the BIOS.

Not to worry. You should leave the BIOS alone. Proper updates will be
installed as HP/Compaq and Windows do not merely look at the BIOS, they look
at the hardware and software config for update purposes.

Because the BIOS has the wrong Part Number, will I get a Color Purple
Error when I attempt using the Recovery Disks that I made?
