Re: HP Pavilion m9150f - Need hardware solution for bios reset

I selected a mistaken video setting in BIOS while messing around with various bios choices (BAD experiment!). As result I get zero video to the monitor ... would love to change setting back in bios, but I'd need to SEE the choices onscreen and my monitor's not getting a signal.
If there's a hardware method of resetting the bios to factory default settings (eg, changing a jumper on MB, etc) I'd have a reasonalbe solution. Can you tell me if this can be done; or can you think of another solution? Thanks!

How to fix bios setting on hp pavilion a6110n


The best way to reset the BIOS back to the defaults (if there isnt a setting to install the defaults), is to remove the BIOS battery for 15mins. This will drain the charge from the BIOS, insert the battery and then go to the BIOS setting to set the Date and Time.

Reset BIOS on HP Pavilion a750w


Fastest way to reset BIOS is to remove the CMOS battery (looks like a large watch battery on Motherboard) for 30 minutes. After you replace the battery, the BIOS should reset to default. If further problems arise involving the BIOS, it's possible the CMOS battery is bad.

How do i check the bios on a hp pavilion 7840 desktop?


Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and immediately and repeatedly press DELETE and F1 and F2 and F10 and F12.

Hopefully, one of those keys will cause your computer to enter "BIOS SETUP' mode.

Be careful -- changes in this mode can make your computer "die",
or at least require a "spell" from a computer-wizard to revive it.

Connect tv to computer


Be sure to enable the second screen through the windows display settings. Right click on the desktop background and select personalize (VIsta) or Properties (XP). Click on the settings menu (lower down on Vista, a tab on the right for XP) and look at the monitor setup. After you are connected via cable to the TV, go there, click on the second screen and select "enable this monitor", "extend desktop onto this monitor" or something of the like. Oftentimes it will not do it if you are not already physically plugged in so ensure that you do that first.

I have an HP Pavilion Elite m9150f desktop PC. I'm getting ''Boot Path error code BIOHD-5 Failed''.


Could be one of two things: either the BIOS has lost the settings for the hard drive, which is uncommon unless the PC is more than 5 years old or been electrically shocked, or the hard drive is going bad. hard drives usually only last about 3-5 years on average. Western Digital even less.

USB ports all seem troublesome


You cannot use wireless keyboard or USB keyboard in setting up the computer BIOS, what you need is a PS2 keyboard, if your motherboard supported USB booting, in Boot section of your BIOS change the Boot Priority to USB Generic Device, after you change the boot priority change the First Boot to Removable Device or USB Generic Device.. and after that save your configuration and restart the computer.. you must put the USB stick first before you configure the BIOS..
