Hi

 

You are welcome.

 

There are no hidden settings in the BIOS installed on your PC now nor in subsequent BIOS updates HP may have released for your PC.

 

It is not recommended to install BIOS updates, or any software, from untrusted sources.

 

You will have to live with what you now have.

 

Regards

Greetings Painwave,

 

Welcome to the forum.

 

I am not an HP employee.

 

Your product has been retired by HP.

 

Very sorry but there are no BIOS updates for your PC.

 

BTW, you are running Windows 10 on your PC. That is a great accomplishment. Many PCs, which are newer, than have problems running W10.

 

Regards
