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.

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.

I need to reset the bios password on an hp nx9110 notebook - it is an office notebook and noone knows the password!


When you pull the battery it will set your cmos back to factory
defaults.

Do one thing first, Your CMOS holds a lot of important information so before you go messing around with the batteryWRITE DOWN YOUR SETTINGS.

There are a few different ways to reset the cmos, here's a few:

1. there are many default common passwords,
such as:

At boot-up note the BIOS provider (Award, AMI, Phoenix, IBM, etc.)

For Award BIOS' try these backdoor passwords:

AWARD_SW
j262
HLT
SER
SKY_FOX
BIOSTAR
ALFAROME
Lkwpeter
j256
AWARD?SW
LKWPETER
syxz
ALLy
589589
589721
awkward
CONCAT
d8on
CONDO
j64
szyx

For AMI BIOS' try these backdoor passwords:

AMI
BIOS
PASSWORD
HEWITT RAND
AMI?SW
AMI_SW
LKWPETER
A.M.I.
CONDO


For PHOENIX BIOS' try this backdoor password:

Forgot my password


BIOS passwords can be reset in two ways,
1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting using software, here are two software's to reset or retieive BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools 4.8

Please let us know if it works.

Laptop screen


Hi,

When you see your screen pixelized, it may be a hardware issue, but before concluding it as a hardware related, I request you to try downloading and installing the latest video driver software and if you wish you can even update your computer with latest BIOS update from the concerned website.

After installation, please restart the computer as the changes made will be updated once you restart the computer.

If the issue persists even after installation of BIOS update and Display driver software for your computer, now it can be concluded that the issue is hardware related and your screen has to be replaced with a new one.

Thanks,
Sharath

You can try these 2 steps:

1. remove the battery from the motherboard and start the system. If doesn't not allow yu to go further then put it back and start the system again.

2. there would be a jumper of 2 pins . Must be placed near the PC light wires(red, green and etc)
