HP Pavillion only displays "diagnostics" in bios, no setup

Hi Experts,

I have a HP Pavillion dv9700(Phoenix bios), which only displays "diagnostics" when I start it up in bios mode.  I am unable to configure anything without a "setup" option.  I was successful in updating the bios from within windows,  but still no "setup" option.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, as this is one that I have never seen before.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unfortuanatly from what i have seen, the diagnostics is all that is available and can't be changed.

what settings are you looking to change?

USB boot?
