The simple answer is: you cannot. HP/Compaq/NEC/Medion/Lenovo are very protective where it comes to letting the end-user handle their stuff from the bios for the very simple reason they cannot track if a defect is caused by hardware malfunction or an enduser overclocking the laptop beyond its limts and burns it down.

You can try for a commercial bios but that is about it.

Do not assume anything
