BIOS UPDATE

Hi:

 

HP retired support for that model since it is more than 10 years old.

 

That is why you cannot find any information.

 

I can't find any specifications on it.

 

What model processor does it have?

 

What BIOS version do you have installed now?

You're very welcome.

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook where you can find the supported processors in chapter 1.

I recommend you only upgrade to one of the processors listed in the manual.
