OS: Vista Business 32
Today I installed the latest updates for my computer through the System Update program.
Unfortunally it seems like the system could never boot up after Updating was finished.
It says, "Error 1804, Unauthorized WAN card, please remove it and ... (Here something I have forgotton)".
My god, My computer has it's own F3507G module in it. But the computer could never recognize it.
I'm now working in Shanghai China. I suppose there may be some limitation here for computer saled in US
When running system Update program, FireWare or FRU number maybe changed by that program.
Any help would be highly appreciated!

Did you make a backup of the system?? Boot into safe mode by pressing F8, and then use system restore under program, start, accessories to restore to an earlier backup.
if you can't restore using the F8 feature, then you might need to restore by pressing the blue thinkvantage button, which should take you into the Rescue and Recovery console, and see whether you can restore to earlier backup.
If all else fails, and you don't need any files on the computer, select to restore to factory settings, which completely reinstall all OS and drivers, but all the previous files will be lost.

I believe that FirmWare of F357G or other thing saved in the Flash was changed when System updating.
Anyhower, I have just restored system to an earlier backup,
it still anounces Error 1804.
Maybe I have to restore it to factory.
Thank you very much for your kindly replay.

Give the factory restore a try.
If that don't work, you would need to seek warranty.
