Bios update beyond 7.16

HP Recommended
P6-2142
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi! I like my HP P6-2142 and I would like to install an Ivy Bridge Intel processor. Please, please, please release an BIOS update so I can make use of i5 3470 quad core. I am sure there are many others that would like to do so.

Please consider a BIOS release greater than 7.16       Thanks, God Bless.

@SurfMuzikLvr,

Your computer is circa early 2012.  HP released that model with WIN 7, and then it moved on.  HP tests different chips available. The i5-3470 was released afterwards.   BTW, the I7-2600K is better than the i5-3470, and would not require a new BIOS.

Hello
Sorry, but you are here in a self - help forum, mostly user - driven.
That said, given the cost that research and development can have
of an update, I doubt that a large builder will answer a single request from a user.
so you definitely have no other choice but to install what is recommended.
Or replace the motherboard
