When I go to open bios setup it just continues to load my pc as normal

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Power Desktop 580-1xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When I try to access my bios through uefi firmware settings I restart and when the start up menu comes up I press f10 to access bios set-up and when I click f10, it just logs me in to the pc and and nothing happens

Sometimes the new PC's are difficult to get into the BIOS.  I have found this to work nicely

Start tapping the Esc key BEFORE starting the PC and then press the start button.
Keep tapping the Esc key until a popup menu shows.  Then pick the submenu that has BIOS settings

Interesting.  Do any of the other choices actually work, F1, F2, or F9?

Try them.  It might be the keyboard is not being recognized properly and just going ahead to start.

BTW: when you do F1, what is the product number for that PC?

F1 and F2 work but F9 doesn't, Esc doesn't work either.

Since there are not keyboard or mouse ports, I assume that a USB wireless type (that came with the system) is being used.  Also assuming the sending host is connected at the rear ports (if they use the built-in bluetooth as host there will not be an apparent separate host connect).  If that host is connected to the USB 3.0 ports, try connecting to the USB 2.0 ports - the one in the same general area as the Ethernet port. 

Replace the batteries in the keyboard and mouse.

All my usb ports are in use as I have have a wired keyboard, mouse, speakers, headphones and printer, so what do I do about that?

If all of the USB ports are in use, there is a possibility to use a powered USB hub.  Depending on the variety of devices, the USB 2.0 devices, if they are more plentiful than the USB 3.0, can use a USB powered hub and plugged into the USB 2.0 source port.  If there are more USB 3.0 devices, then get a USB 3.0 powered hub and host from the USB 3.0 ports.  It is best to not mix them.

Again, if the keyboard is plugged into the USB 3.0 ports, then that might be the problem.
