Question about HP Pavilion (PN153AAR) PC Desktop

2 Answers

USB ports all seem troublesome

I have an HP Pavilion m9150F and I have to cold boot to have the USB ports recognized to use a flash drive or my external hard drive. At times my wireless mouse and keyboard do not work until I shut down the computer.

The system is not very old but very disappointing with this problem. An HP technician spent quite a while accessing my computer and tried to fix the problem but gave us.

I have warranty on the machine and do not want to take it to a local repair person.

Questions - Do you routinely leave your PC on? By that I mean do you shut down the PC daily or use the S3 Suspend/Sleep mode or S4 Hibernate modes? If so, Vista is probably the culprit.

Do you have an HP printer attached/installed? Namely an AiO (All-In-One - Printer Scanner, Copier)

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..

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.

Boot Sector Error


Can you get it to boot without the BSOD? If the problem is intermittent, it's probably a flaky drive sector. If Windows will boot, you should be able to get Norton to make a good copy.

If it will no longer boot, the sector is probably corrupted. You can tell Norton to do a sector copy & ignore errors, but that may duplicate the problem.

You may want to try what's listed here:

Look under /FixMBR. You could ghost it to another drive, then try that.
