Hi:

 

The latest BIOS for your PC is this one.

 

1.16     Oct 11, 2011

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp54001-54500/sp54368.exe

 

Because the BIOS update was written to only work with XP and Vista, you need to use the F10 BIOS setup flashing method to actually update the BIOS.

 

Run the file.  An information page will open.

 

Read the info under this section...

 

                                                                                               F10 Setup BIOS Flashing
The HP Business Desktop system supported by this softpaq provides a BIOS upgrade option through F10 setup using the "Flash System ROM" feature. Reboot the PC and press F10 to enter setup. In the File menu, select the "Flash System ROM" item. This flash utility will present the user with the option to select the media containing the BIOS image file (XXX_MMmm.bin). The binary image file is contained in the DOS Flash directory and is named XXX_MMmm.bin where "XXX" is the abbreviated BIOS family, "MM" is the major version number, and "mm" is the minor version number. F10 ROM based flash can accept the binary file from the root directory of any removable media such as USB, legacy floppy diskette, and CD. The BIOS CD Media file, included in this softpaq, should be used to create a BIOS image CD. When flashing with F10 ROM based flash, the CD media must be El-Torito compatible. The user is prompted when the process is completed. The new BIOS code will not take effect until the PC is rebooted.
                                                                                             View Contents of DOS Flash Folder

 

Here is a summary of what you need to do...

 

Get a USB flash drive.   Format it with the FAT32 file system.

 

Copy the file contents of the DOS flash folder to your USB flash drive.  Just the files, not the folder.

 

Restart the PC.  Tap the F10 key immediately at the beginning of the HP welcome screen to get access to the BIOS.

 

Select the File tab>Flash System ROM item. 

 

Select the USB flash drive.  The PC should 'see' the BIOS update files on the flash drive.

 

Follow the onscreen instructions to update the BIOS.
