HPE-310t BIOS not finding 3TB drive

I have an HPE-310T Pavillion with a bad drive.  Thought I'd upgrade to a 3TB drive (3TB 7,200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive), but the BIOS is not recognizing anything but 750GB.  I don't see any BIOS updates anywhere on the support website.  Ideas, suggestions?

Re: HPE-310t BIOS not finding 3TB drive

Thanks for the response, but as the post indicated... this is a BIOS issue.  I'm aware of the 2TB limitations at the OS layer, but the BIOS should have some recognition.  It doesn't.  The drive is recognized in other systems, but not this one.  And I do not see any firmware updates for this model, whatsoever.  Additional thoughts?
