BIOS Setup (F10)

This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with the HP Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) beginning in late-2008.
To access the BIOS Setup, turn on the computer and repeatedly press the esc key to enter the Startup Menu, and then press the F10 key to enter the BIOS setup utility.

The BIOS Setup window consists of options for Security, System Configuration, and Diagnostics.
 note:
Available options vary depending on the model of the computer and the type of Central Processing Unit (CPU) used.
If the computer is maintained by a system administrator or an IT department, some of the standard BIOS options may be locked out and may not appear on the BIOS Setup window. If the computer is an HP or Compaq business model, it may have HP Protect Tools installed. This is a utility that allows you to password protect access to the BIOS, or examine and alter the BIOS setup.
