Hello
that seems normal the pc being of origin under windows 7 ..
What is the problem, the pc is not working?
The only solution would be an update
There is indeed this,

https://support.hp.com/soar-attachment/296/col30889-ob-93558-3-ob-93558-3_sp52509.html

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/swdetails/hp-pavilion-dv6-3100-entertainment-notebo...

This package provides the HP BIOS Update Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) for the supported notebook models and operating systems. HP BIOS Update UEFI provides support for safe and secure BIOS updates from HP.

but I do not know if it is appropriate and the risk is not negligible
An update of the bios, failed, and the pc may no longer work
It is necessary to take this risk, you see!

can be already installed, in this case, nothing more to do

Hi

 

"First picture, at least that start warranty 2016"

 

Unfortunately not, it is a refurb, usually sold without warranty, and the 2016 date is probably when it was done.
