Hi:

 

Here is the link to the support page for your PC.

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Pavilion-p7-Desktop-PC-series/5187022/model/5231...

 

BIOS updates are listed under the W8 driver section.

 

There weren't any for W7.

 

I don't know what the results would be if you tried to update the BIOS when running W7, since it was only written to be run in W8.

Thanks for your efforts, but when I went to your recommended URL, this is the message I received (and BTW, the same one I got when I searched for it originally): 

We were unable to find drivers for your product.

Any other ideas ?

You're very welcome.

 

Yes, I get the same message too because I am using W10 to access that link.

 

But above and slightly to the left of that message are two blue lines.

 

Choose a different product

Choose a different operating system

 

I click on the Choose a different operating system line, a window pops up, and on the left side, I choose Windows, and on the right side I have the option to choose W7 or W8 from the menu, which were the only HP-supported operating systems.

 

Then I get a list of available drivers and software for the applicable operating system.
