Pavilion P6000 (p6523w)
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I am wondering if there are still drivers available for this beast.  I picked it up from a thrift store and debating to load a OS on it or just use it for a doorstop.  I’ve tried searching the HP website and apparently it was EOL’d.  So, if anyone might have some insight on this monster.  Please shout out here.  I’m wondering if there might be a bios update laying around somewhere too.

 

Thanks!

Hello
if you have this model

HP Pavilion p6523w Desktop 

there would be this motherboard

  • Manufacturer: Foxconn
  • Motherboard Name: H-Alpinia-RS780L-uATX
  • HP/Compaq motherboard name: Alpinia-GL8

you can find the same motherboard from the page of this series

 Caractéristiques de la carte mère H-Alpinia-RS780L-uATX (Alpinia)

  •  Foxconn H-Alpinia-RS780L-uATX
  •  Alpinia GL8

Check, but the latest bios version might be here

https://support.hp.com/ca-fr/drivers/selfservice/swdetails/hp-pavilion-p6700-desktop-pc-series/50353...

https://support.hp.com/ca-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-pavilion-p6700-desktop-pc-series/5035348

that said, updating the bios is not without risk, avoid if possible

 

you can probably use drivers available here as well
