See if running this utility allows you to find that info.

You need to install the microcode update by using a bootable flash drive with the common MS DOS command files and the contents of the microcode flash file included on the bootable flash drive.
I have attached the tool to make a usb flash drive bootable, and the MS DOS system files to copy onto the flash drive.
I have also zipped up and attached the microcode update files.
See the 3 files below under Attachments.
Unzip and copy the DOS files without any folders to the flash drive, after you run the HP tool to make it bootable.
Unzip the Microcode update files and put them on the flash drive too without any folders, after you make the drive bootable.
Once that is done, restart the PC, tap the F9 key to get the boot options menu and select the USB flash drive from the list.
Once you are at the command prompt...
You type Flashbin.exe at the command prompt you get when you boot from the flash drive, and hit the enter key.
Follow the on screen instructions to update the microcode.
