Hi there @5552,
Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you are looking for an updated BIOS for Windows 7, for your computer. I am happy to help with this.
Checking the support page there is not a BIOS listed at all, for Windows 7, just some options for Windows 8. What you can do is try using the HP Support Assistant. It can look for any available updated drivers for the hardware and operating system in your system, and may find something not on the web page.
Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

If nothing was found using either of those two methods then there is not a newer HP Bios available.
What is the model of the graphics card you are putting in?
Looking through the following two documents:
HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Motherboard Specifications, H-Joshua-H61-uATX (Joshua), you need to consider these factors that can affect card functionality:
Power Supply 300W, also whether the graphics card needs supplementary power connections.
- One PCI Express x16 (Gen2.0)
- Three PCI Express x1 (Gen2.0)
- One PCI Express x1 Mini Card

Is the BIOS update you are looking for, something mentioned for the card or a message when you try to install the driver?
