What problem are you encountering that you think that you want/need a BIOS update to resolve?
> HP no longer supports this model.
Correct. From: HP Customer Support - HP Pavilion 7700 Desktop PC series
Retired Products The following products have been retired and are no longer supported by HP. All official HP support content for these products has been removed from this web site.
- HP Pavilion 7700 Desktop PC (AP)
- HP Pavilion 7702 Desktop PC (AP)
- HP Pavilion 7705 Desktop PC (AP)
- HP Pavilion 7706 Desktop PC (AP)
- HP Pavilion 7708 Desktop PC (AP)
- HP Pavilion 7710 Desktop PC (SP)
- HP Pavilion 7760 Desktop PC (UK)
- HP Pavilion 7770 Desktop PC (UK)
Your '7750' is not listed, but I doubt that the omission implies that it still is supported.
> where can I obtain newer bios?
My guess is "nowhere". Don't shoot the messenger.
You might try www.archive.org -- they say that they have archived millions and millions of web-sites, for over a decade.

I have zipped up and attached the BIOS file you need below, since HP has removed it from their FTP site.
I have also zipped up and attached the readme document for your review. Read that first before updating the BIOS.
Double check to make sure this BIOS (for the A8M2N-LA Motherboard) is correct for your model.
