No "usb legacy support" "qfan" options on my asus laptop bios.

Entering the bios limits me to certain options. Is there anyway to access the other options? sorry, newbie here.

If your BIOS doesn't include such options, then they simply are not there.

I don't know about hacking BIOS's, and I wouldn't suggest it at all. You could brick your motherboard.

However, you should check with your manufacturer's website and see if there is an update available for the BIOS that may increase available options.

Please specify your BIOS or your PC Model. A tweaked BIOS could be a bit risky, but I never had problems with it though.

A factory built rig such as ASUS, Dell, etc will have a locked BIOS. They won't allow you access to most settings, say for setting volts or frequencies.
