    Hi Folks;

    I have an older Compaq Presario 900 laptop. The BIOS has a very limited number of options available (compared to a custom desktop) and so I was wondering if a person can 'unlock' it so that all the options are visible.

    To that end I installed the Phoenix BIOS editor and grabbed the latest .WPH Bios file for my laptop.

    I was under the impression that the BIOS would have a simple option buried in it somewhere (like Show all Options :D).

    Instead it looks like a person has to add the options they desire (looks like a laborious process).

    Am I right about that or is there really a magic setting that shows all the available options for the BIOS?
