BIOS Advanced tab

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15 cs3019nl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi all,

after having read up and down the internet for months (literally) I've come to the official place to get an answer.

Now, I already know what the official HP response is: you can't access it. Fair enough. Thing is, I USED to access it in earlier BIOS versions (F.10/11 if I recall correctly), whereas with the new F.12 and F.14 there's no way.

As of last year I could press f9 to get in the boot menu, then Ctrl+f1 and finally f10, and there it was.

My issue is that the last time I accessed it I set Power Plan 2 to get more battery life, but now I'd like to revert this and a few other things I changed. But I can't. For some obscure reason loading setup defaults and recovering the BIOS using Win+V, while effectively recovering it, doesn't change the Power Plan and the other stuff.

So my question is, since I refuse to believe HP completely removed the feature and only changed the key combination, how does, for example, a technician get into the Advanced BIOS?

Since warranty has already run out I think my last resort is to mod the actual BIOS files

Anyhow, sorry for the long read and thanks in advance for any response!
