Hidden BIOS settings in 14s-fq1xxx

14s-fq1xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I have a question. How to access advanced settings in BIOS (they are supposed to be there)? My laptop model is 14s-fq1010ur with changed RAM but I think my question applies to all same models.

Sorry, but apart from business notebooks and some high-end gaming PCs, 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. No one from here is going to provide you any means of getting around that.

I am expecting an answer from HP employee who should actually know the right solution, not from volunter who spends his free time on copy-pasting same message billion times.
