When you are in the system configuration menu, there are those boxes and one of them is labeled set security level.
Here is the link to my BIOS configuration menu settings.
Perhaps this will be of help to you as well.

There must be some kind of BIOS security thing blocking you.
Maybe you want to set all of your BIOS security settings to the defaults?
I don't have any passwords or HP Protect Tools on my PC.
If you have the HP Protect Tools security software installed, maybe there is some security in there that is locking down your BIOS settings.

The only thing enabled there is "Pre-boot security", making me have to enter my password every time I turn on the machine. I try to turn it off, but I doubt it will change much as I am the only "registered user" of the system anyway...

To get Administrator of BIOS check this link :
it will give you the Administrator user that can change all settings in BIOS .
XP mode works for me , I looked in VB and shows VT enabled , but haven't started yet a virtual machine to test .
Check also if there's any BIOS update that might be needed , I'm running F22 .
