Whatever settings your motherboard BIOS shows that's what it gives you control over. All other functions are locked and a BIOS update won't enable or allow you to change those extra things.
In other brand name computer you may be able to but in HP it's a different story.
You also can't overclock the cpu, fab, ram and change timings and voltages like I would like to so I went out and bought my own case (better case) and motherboard (much better motherboard) and put it together myself.

I don't need to overclock it though. I have no interest in that. I need to change some settings to get a USB device to work correctly. Are you certain there is no way to access advanced settings? I mean...that's just plain stupid for HP to sell laptops without proper setting control. It makes me wonder why I bought from them in the first place.

What is the USB issue you are having? Maybe you don't need to go into the BIOS to fix it?

Well...I really can't say more, for fear of voiding tech support rights, but that I am in need of bootings something off of my portable hard drive. When I try to boot from it properly, it blinks the _ for a moment or two and then goes into a normal windows boot even though I did everything right during prior actions to get portable hard drive to fuction as needed.
I fear that I have made a mistake getting an HP...and such an expensive one too at the time because I expected to be able to do whatever I need/wanted to do with it within practical reason. I have booted off of portable USB sticks before as have I off of disks, but it won't recognize the bootable material I have on my portable hard drive. It does recognize that I have it attached but...like I said, it just goes to the _ thing and then starts normally.
