BIOS Update

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion P6129it
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, 

I need to update my BIOS version to a version that supports UEFI. I need to change a damaged graphic card to another that is supported if it's possible to change to UEFI.

I installed HP Support Assistent, tried to fing driver and software to P6100 series, but didn't find nothing.

Could you help me please?

 

Thank you very much!

Hi:

 

HP retired support for your PC's model series since it is over 10 years old.

 

It doesn't matter anyway since the BIOS your PC has is a legacy BIOS and there are no updates that would change it to UEFI.

 

The newest model graphics card you can install would be one of the nvidia GT 6xx cards or an AMD Radeon HD 6xxx card.

 

You should be able to find one in used but tested and working condition on ebay.

 

If you just need a graphics card so that you have video, get a GT 610 or GT 210 or an AMD Radeon HD 6450.

Hi, 

Thank you for your reply, I saw another person in the forum that said that an update was successful, but I think that he used the wrong setup.

You're very welcome.

 

Your PC according to the specs has an Intel series 3 chipset and the earliest Intel PC's that had UEFI BIOS' had the series 6 chipset.
