How to access advanced BIOsettings on myPavilion 15 Laptop to make the RAM speed go at 3200 MHz?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion - 15-cw1063wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just upgraded my RAM to 32GB at 3200 MHz, but the RAM speed is stuck at 2400 MHz. How do I access the Advanced BIOS settings on my laptop to change the XMP settings and make my RAM run faster?

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.

you will find this to be the case with most laptop brands, they don't want the end user fussing around in there, and tweaking settings that could cause a overheat issue and the like, after all they are in a very small case and get pretty hot anyhow.
