Accessing the BIOS on an HP Pavilion desktop computer involves completing a fairly standard procedure. As opposed to certain models of desktops or laptops that require you to either run a specific program from your "Start" menu or use the command prompt, unlocking the BIOS on your HP Pavilion involves pressing a single keyboard key during your computer's boot sequence.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start."

  2. 2

    Click "Restart." Your HP Pavilion will shut itself down and begin to start again.

  3. 3

    Press "F2." This keyboard key unlocks the BIOS on your HP Pavilion desktop computer.
