Cannot enter BIOS on HP Pavilion 590-P0020

Pavilion 590-P0020
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a new Pavilion 590-P0020.

 

I am running BIOS 10 - (5/31/2018) 

 

I can successfully hit ESC to get the blue pick list in BIOS/UEFI that allows for several options, including hardware diagnostics, boot disk selection, enter BIOS setup, and <enter> to continue.

 

Selecting UEFI hardware diagnostics (F2, IIRC) works great.  The other options don't work (well, enter works - boots Windows normally...)

 

Can anyone offer any suggestions?  I just want to get into BIOS to check boot order of disks, see the settings, etc.

@dclive, welcome to the forum.

 

You can try tapping "F10" once per second when the computer begins to boot.  This should take you directly to the BIOS setup utility.

The F10 key apparently is overridden on my keyboard with another function, and requires the Fn key to be pressed simultaneously.  Pressing Fn-F10 fixed the issue completely.

@dclive, thanks for the update.  You can go into the BIOS and change the setting so you don't have to use the Fn key for that purpose: System Configuration/Action Keys Mode/Enabled.  I have mine set so it will work without the Fn key.
