Newer BIOS for an old desktop

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion t3210
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I'm looking for a newer bios version for my old desktop. The current version is 3.34. I think there's at least version 3.46 for this motherboard.

 

HP doesn't support this model anymore.

 

Model: HP Pavilion t3000

Product: t3210.fi

System number: EL488AA

Motherboard model: Amethyst-M 1.0

 

I'd be grateful if someone can help.

Was the original OS actually "XP".  

The only BIOS update shown  is 3.47, and that will not install with a resident WIN 7.

Thanks Provost.

 

I managed to find and install the new bios version (3.47, not 3.46 as I said above). Look here: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Boot-and-Lockup/Newer-BIOS-for-an-old-desktop/td-p/6359585.
