Trying to update Bio Update/ Question

HP Recommended
IHP Compaq DC7700
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hi, i am trying to figure out when the last Bios update was for my/this computer. 

 

When i pulled up the current Bio info it says "Hewlet Packrd 786E1 v01.10, 4/13/2007.  I am assuming the last update was 4/20007?

 

If there is a more current update how do i find/get it and install it?

 

When i do the "support/ drivers and dlownloads" function, it doesn't list my operationg system of Windows 10 pro.  It only goes as high as Windows 7.

 

Can someone help me or is the Bio update currently installed the last one.

Hi,

 

HP only supports up to W7 32 bit on your PC. It is not possible to update the BIOS using W10 even if a newer BIOS update existed.

 

Your PC could be at end of life if you need a BIOS update to fix a W10 problem.

 

Regards

I was just inquiring about the Bios and whether or not they needed to be updated.  computer works fine EXCEPT (and i'm getting ready to post another question) for the video/graphics which recently started to cause errors.
