Hi,

 

Try the following.

 

Shut down the notebook - do this by holding down the left Shift key as you click on Shutdown to temporarily prevent a hybrid boot. 

 

Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to access the Start-up Menu and then select the Bios option ( f10 ).

 

Regards,

how to go into bios on hp pavilion g6 using windows 8.1

This did not work for me. A little bit of background. HP Pavilion G6 updraded from W7 to W10 (then clean install of W10) the laptop was super slow in W7 and still is in W10. I ran a few tests and according to Parted Magic the i5 CPU is running in 32bit. I want see what is in BIOS but can not get in any of the ways mentioned. In fact W10 recovery options does not show any way to BIOS. msinfo32.exe show that BIOS running in Legacy mode, could that be the issue? Or any other BIOS settings can under-clock the CPU? Is it even possible to have Intel i5 running in 32bit? 

Thank you all help appreciated
