Hi, Daniel:

 

There are no BIOS updates for W10.

 

I see from the product specs that your PC only has the onboard Intel graphics.

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01969881

 

The 1st generation Intel quad core processors require a discrete video card in order to work.

 

So, if you have installed the i7-860 processor and have no display, that is the problem.

 

Just get a cheap legacy PCIe x16 video card and you should be fine.

 

You cannot go beyond the Nvidia GT 6xx model series or the AMD Radeon HD 6xxx model series since your PC has a legacy BIOS.

 

Here is a link to a similar model to yours which has the same motherboard.

 

It has a list of compatible graphics cards for the motherboard your PC has.

The link is for a different computer model number 

Does that matter ?

Yes, I know.

 

I selected a 'Configured to Order' model PC, so I could see the list of graphics cards that could be installed.

 

That model uses the exact same motherboard as yours, so my assumption would be those graphics cards would work in your PC too.

 

You can probably find any one of those cards in used but tested and working condition on eBay pretty cheaply.
