Bios update request for HP pavilion ZV5120US

HP Recommended
Pavilion ZV5120US
Microsoft Windows XP

Hello,

 

I need a Bios update for my HP Pavilion ZV5120US running Windows XP.

It is currently running version f.21 (SMBIOS 2.31) of the BIOS but when I booted Linux it gave me some errors indicating the BIOS may have a bug that could be fixed by updating it.

 

Can you provide me with the link to the update? I couldn't find it on HP's website. I would like to have it updated while it is still running Windows before I install Linux on it. Thank you.

Hi:

 

HP retires support for PC's that have reached 10 years of age.   That is why you can't find any drivers for your notebook.

 

This would be the last BIOS update that HP released for your notebook...F.45.
