BIOs Update HP Pavilion

   The PC is a HP Pavilion ze4125 running Windows XP SP3 system with Internet Explorer 8.0 (with all current updates) system says it needs a BIOs update after 3 diagnostic checks. It's currently running KA.M1.20 Version BIOs. I used the "eDiag Tools for Windows"  to try to update and install the BIOs update but, the tool wont attach to the website to update the eDiag Tool Version or the BIOs for installation to the PC also tried downloading from HP's website directly to the PC still shows the same ERROR "HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found" or the winflash (BIOs update download) didnt update the BIOs it had an Error Message: the AC adapter needs to be plugged in (which it was) and not running off the battery (which it wasn't) and or the BIOs wont update with flash. 

   The question is what is the proper address for the updates of the BIOs for the PC or the eDiag tool to attach and or update. Note read the "read me files" and tried the address specified there but, still get the "HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found" ERROR. (The e-diag Tools for Windows version: 3.00.0044). there are several version out since that version. The latest current up to date seen is Version: KA M1.26 .

Problem: experiencing unexpected freezes, crashes and shutdowns, suggestions and or the proper technique to update the BOIs without R&R of all the PC software would be appreciated.

Re: BIOs Update HP Pavilion

Is this the BIOS file you are downloading and trying to install?
