Having made a change to the BIOS that results in that kind of result is best corrected by taking the computer to a reputable shop for a BIOS reset.

Often this BIOS reset can be accomplished by removing the CMOS battery, but because this is a laptop, I cannot recommend that you open it up yourself.

Please choose a local shop that lives on its own local reputation, not one of the "Big Box" services.
