Originally, I started off on this computer with just tryring to fix Windows Updates. Windows 10 kept rolling back. So I wiped out the OS and tried to reinstall Windows and the laptop (HP Pavilion 15-aw094nr) started having overheating issues. I replaced the thermal paste and single fan unit inside the laptop. It still seemed to overheat. I flashed the BIOS to F.32 to see if it would help / solve the issue as I believe it is something in the BIOS; but cannot get into the BIOS settings either now.
Is there a button I can push to get into the advanced settings to possibly down tune the voltage/heat issue I seem to be having? I have tried all different kinds of combinations to no avail. It seems HP has totally locked down this machine and will not allow the BIOS to be changed. Is my assumption correct? If so, I now have a $900 brick.
