Solved!

Can't get BIOS update for P6517C Desktop PC.

HP Recommended
P6517c
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello, 

 

I need a bios update for my P6517C computer, and I can't find one anywhere on HP's site. If someone can like me to the download that would be great.

 

I would assume the download would be here but it loads forever, it seems like HP deleted support files for this computer.

So I've just tried another graphics card, this time an AMD radeon, and it worked fine. Not sure what the issue was as both of these graphics cards work fine in other systems. 

 

Thank you both for the help, and sorry I didn't test this earlier.

Cheers

@orbitwar 

That is a 10 year old machine, based on WIN 7.  What were you attempting to install ?

Any GPU card above the GTX 660 is impossible.

@Wb2001 I was trying to install a GT 210 just for display output. The internal NVIDIA chipset graphics adapter isn't compatible with windows 10.

 

@Prométhée The bios revision is 6.08 (04/28/2010)

Sorry @orbitwar 
I haven't seen the response notification or not received
So I did not answer!
What it would be nice, you never know, it might help other users:
Indicate the model of the motherboard, (I may not have the correct one given, the answer for the bios!)
The power of the power supply?
And most importantly the exact model you installed
Sorry again, for the lack of response
