A PC's BIOS is the brains behind the hardware and is responsible for enabling various components when you turn on your machine. Its functions include setting an admin password and reviewing a triumvirate of oh-so-important security features.

Entering your laptop's BIOS is actually a simple task as long as you have an idea of what to do and what the key is. The best way to get there is by pressing your assigned BIOS hotkey when your PC boots up, which is generally F10 or some other similar numerical symbol accompanied by an audible beep.

You can also get there by navigating the menus and selecting options that will help you set your computer up for success. For example, if you're trying to upgrade your system with a new memory chip or processor, the BIOS wizard will help you find the right settings for your system and give you an idea of how your RAM is performing and what changes may be necessary before you jump in to the action.

If you're unsure of how to enter your BIOS and you're in the market for a new machine, be sure to check out our top picks for the best HP laptops on the market.
