How to make Intel Management Engine version valid?

In Gnome 43 settings, the “Device security” tab shows I am at Level 0 since my “Intel Management Engine Version” is “Not Valid”. I have a HP laptop but HP didn’t provide any updates on Linux. I also checked the Intel website and there are only graphics driver available.

May I know anywhere else I can find a driver or update, or other method to make the IME version valid?

Model: HP Pavilion Power Laptop 15-cb044tx
CPU: Intel Core i7 7700HQ

Thank you
