Hi, It's been around two years since i bought this laptop, it's really good and fast. This year, I gave my son this notebook I'm using because it's still in good quality and condition, however, knowing that he will be using this notebook for gaming, I've done some research on optimizing the this notebook for better game performance. One option which one of my friend had done to his laptop was dedicate more video memory(VRAM), and i was told that by doing this, i would get a huge performance boost. I was instructed to go to the advance tab in the Bios to change it but when i booted into the BIOS, there was no "advance" option. When the advance tab was missing, i knew exactly why, the manufacterur probably locked the advance tab so customers won't mess around the BIOS and ending up breaking their laptop and ask for a refund during the warranty. But please, my warranty has already expired, and I would like to know what exactly do i have to do in order to unlock the advance tab in the BIOS. Please help me unlock the advance tab in the bios as i am desperate.
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.
