Getting into settings of Bios


I've searched on the forum for my problem. however none of the items helped me. I have a HP Pavilion DV9690. I'm trying to get into the settings side of the BIOS. When you press F1 or ESC you only get the main page showing the system info or diagnostic menus.  Any idea what one needs to press to get to the section that you can change?

Thanks a million!

What about using Delete on startup?  That is how some systems get you into the BIOS.
I believe F10 is the key on HP laptops to access the BIOS setup

None of them worked - tried them before i asked the question.

the manual says F10, section 5 describes the use  :

There should be a legend either on the bottom or the left hand side that tells what keys to press to edit settings and change pages.
I realize nobus is correct and has provided extra information with the manual, but I did provide the proper keystroke for entering the BIOS and should have had consideration as to the point allocation being the first correct answer.
