I am in need of an update to my BIOS.

HP Recommended
Pavilion S3400f
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an older HP Pavilion S3400f. It has Windows 10 Home installed on it, and ever since the last update to Windows, it runs like garbage. After several sessions with Windows technicians, I found out that my outdated BIOS is no longer supported by Windows 10 Home. They can't help me update the BIOS, as it's through HP. Is there any reliable downloads for a 2019 or 2020 BIOS update?

Hi:

 

The last BIOS update HP released for your PC was v5.18 in September of 2008.

 

There is nothing newer than that, and the BIOS update was only supported to run on Windows XP or Vista.

Thanks for the reply. My version is 5.11 from February of 2008. Is it possible to update to the most recent version? I doubt very much that it'll help the state of my computer, though.

You're very welcome.

 

That was the last BIOS release HP offered in that model.
