Where to find 32-bit/64-bit BIOS for HP mini 210-4000cto

[ Edited ]
Product Name: HP mini 210
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I can find software and use HP mini 210-2177nr with HP 32-bit / 64-bit BIOS Software with Intel Graphics GMA 3150 for 32-bit or 64-bit software, with 32-bit/64-bit Intel N550 CPU and Intel Chipset CG82NM10 - NM10. At HP it does not explain its 32-bit/64-bit BIOS Software, yet once you start to install it, it does explain its 32-bit/64-bit Software, therefore so thankful for 32-bit/64bit BIOS Software. Depending upon what Solid State Drive I use for HP mini 210-2177nr - The SATA 2 Solid State Drives I used did not work well with this application, I found only the SATA 3 Solid State drives did, therefore a much better choice.  I find HP mini 210-2177nr 64-bit works better than 32-bit Software, therefore I installed and made it a 64-bit System to use, it works great. I also found that the HP 5272509-001 version of Intel 6200 wireless card works better than the Broadcom 4313 installed - this puts out more heat, along with RAM and SSD. Therefore when the HP version of Intel 6200 is installed I found less heat against my body - the two things that did create heat after installing the HP version of Intel 6200 was the CPU and NM10 chip therefore much cooler against the body.


HP mini 210-4000cto with Intel N2800 CPU and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 and Intel Chipset NM10.

The CPU can use 64bit - Intel wrote: Instruction Set 64-bit and Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) 4 GB.


At Intel N2800 is found here:

At Intel NM10 is found here:  Specifications  or Chipset diagram


HP mini 210-2177nr uses N550 and NM10

At Intel N550 is found here:


Intel N550 wrote: Instruction Set 64-bit and Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) 2GB. Intel wrote this will use Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150


The RAM, I used in HP mini 210-4000cto is made by Kingston - KTT1066D3/4G yet more companies can make a 4GB RAM for this Computer - Crucial or Transcend and others. Therefore depending on which RAM or Solid State Drive My WEI score was different.


This should do great it has 4GB RAM, 2GB  is the limit in HP mini 210-2177nr.


HP mini 210-4000cto with Transcend 4G 1333 DDR3 :

WEI is :   3.6

Resolution is :  1152 x 864 by adjusting 2 things in registry and adjusting pixels with values of 84

Processor :   3.6

Memory (RAM) :   5.4

Graphics :   5.9

Gaming Graphics :  3.7

Primary (my solid state drive) :   7.7


HP mini 210-2177nr with Crucial CT25664BC1339. 16FF - 2GB 10600 DDR3


WEI is :   3.0

Resolution is :  1152 x 864 by adjusting 2 things in registry and adjusting pixels with values of 84

Processor :   3.2

Memory (RAM) :   4.6

Graphics :   4.7

Gaming Graphics :  3.0

Primary (my solid state drive) :   7.6


Both wrote: Instruction Set 64-bit, therefore both HP mini 210-2177nr and HP mini 210-4000cto have 64-bit. To use 64-bit it must be 32/ 64-bit BIOS, therefore to use 64-bit it must be compatable software - it must be 64-bit, drivers, and Operating System. Most of the drivers (all but 1) did come from HP for HP mini 210-2177nr yet must install them to see the listing - while installing to see the list - where it shows the 32bit and 64bit listing.


HP mini 210-4000cto can use 32-bit/64-bit - Intel N2800 CPU is 32bit/64bit and Intel NM10 Chipset and 32bit/64bit Intel Graphics GMA 3600, therefore to use it, there most be the software, the 32bit/64bit BIOS software.  I found 32-bit BIOS at HP and 32bit GMA 3600 Software when I checked HP, and Intel. I could not find 64-bit. I did find 64-bit software for GMA 3600 from a computer programmer, on the Internet. Therefore I found almost all HP software to be usable in 64-bit, (you must install it to see the listing) therefore I need 2 things, or just one - the 32-bit/64-bit BIOS Software.


The problem is where to find 32-bit / 64-bit BIOS Software, for HP mini 210-4000cto, there is only 32-bit BIOS Software at Please I need 32-bit/64-bit BIOS Software. Where or when HP 32-bit/64-bit BIOS Software will be available is something I would like to find and use?

The link you provided for HP mini 210-4000cto

It only shows its 32bit while installing and after being installed.


Please - I need HP 32bit /64bit BIOS software for HP mini 210-4000cto with Intel N2800 CPU  with Intel GMA 3600. Therefore with 32bit/64bit BIOS software - then I can use 64bit Software.  I can imagine great things - Based on the effect I get from the 64bit HP mini 210-2177nr - Its amazing how fast it is now - shutdown in less than 10 seconds, browse the internet with speed, startup in less than 10-20 seconds. I get a better WEI score than a HP Elitebook 2540p


I am anxious to use the HP mini 210-4000cto - with 64bit software, it has 4GB of memory.

I know HP mini 210-4000cto will work with 64bit Software  - Please.


Who could I pay ? I could try the BIOS company listed in computer - to get the 32bit/ 64bit BIOS software for  HP mini 210-4000cto therefore it appears I could try the HP supplier. If HP a fair price from my bank account, or whoever is best. Its worth the effect - its amazing how it would be - It has 4GB memory not the 2GB that HP mini 210-2177nr has.
