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MSINFO32 says: bios outdated (no version number)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?

The Operating System on your computer has been migrated beyond where there are specific HP software / driver packages available.
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:
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.
I stand corrected! Apparently you can use the BIOS update specified for the older OS! Good news.
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.

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.
