Modding/unlocking HP BIOS

I finally figured out a solution to this and thought I would share on here incase anyone has the same problem. 

If you can't mod your bios or just don't want to and you have an amd cpu, then you can use ryzen master to change your memory speed. Just check what your motherboard is capable of or your computer may not boot to the bios and will need the cmos to be reset. I accidentally put it at the memory max of 3600mhz when my board only supports 3200mhz max. After that I just dialed in the correct timings and left everything else on auto and then I tested it and saved the profile.

I am trying to mod/unlock the bios on my hp prebuilt.

I just purchased a ram upgrade, but because there is no xmp option in the bios I am unable to change the memory speed to what it should be.

Does anyone know how to unlock the bios so that I can have xmp?

From what I learned from @ShrimpBrime is, the fourm has no OEM bioses on their data bases.  What prebuilt is it?
