notebook bios outdated but recent version not found on HP support pages

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion g6-1350ed notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

The fan runs continuously and is noisy.

A solution might be updating the bios (according to hp support site).

MSINFO32 says: bios outdated (no version number)

 

I used the HP software and drivers protocol, but it only shows that drivers migth need update via WIndows update (no specific).

 

Where op the HP support pages can I find a recent bios version?

@EJHP

 

The Operating System on your computer has been migrated beyond where there are specific HP software / driver packages available.

 

HP Pavilion g6-1350ed Notebook PC

 

What?

 

There are not individual HP software and drivers for your computer running Windows 10.

 

In its migrated condition, the computer is dependent on Windows Update for software and drivers.

 

Your Driver page calls this document:

HP Products - Where Do I Find Windows 10 Drivers and Software for My Model?

 

The BIOS Update option is only available when the computer's Driver Section provides the HP BIOS for your current Operating System.

 

Because BIOS updates can destroy your computer even when everything is done correctly, be very wary of trying to apply a BIOS to your computer that is not specifically created for your computer's exact build.

 

======================================================

EDITS:

Thanks to @Huffer and @banhien

I stand corrected!  Apparently you can use the BIOS update specified for the older OS!  Good news.

sp60864.cva - information sheet

======================================================

 

If the migration to Windows 10 was completed within the past month, you can consider whether you want to try reverting to your original Operating System.

 

Going back to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1

F.66 is the most recent and can be found here:

Don't expect miracles. More likely it needs to be opened up and cleaned out inside around the fan and new thermal compound applied.

Thanks for your respons, but when I click the link I only see "Windows 10 drivers may be available through Windows Update" . No entry about bios ...

Click "Change" and change to Windows 7 and then update and it will show you the BIOS options
