How do I unlock advanced BIOS for my laptop?

HP Recommended
Pavilion gaming 15 dk1064tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My NVIDIA Control Panel only shows 3D settings options, so I figured this is because my BIOS has set the integrated GPU as default instead of my RTX 2060. I learned that to fix this mistake, I need to access advanced BIOS. So... does anyone know how???

Sorry, but accessing Advanced BIOS option on HP PCs is not possible.

Some OEMs lock out the advanced BIOS options to prevent customers from making changes to options that can destabilize or otherwise damage the PC -- and then send it back for repair under warranty claiming they did nothing to it.

I know only SOME of the advanced options are risky, but it's simpler to disable access to ALL advanced options than to allow/disallow on an individual option basis.

That's the course of action that HP has chosen.
