Question about HP Pavilion (PN153AAR) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I had to do a clean install of Win7 from Win Vista after all sorts of problesm with an upgrade and spending hours talking to Microsoft support--they suggested the clean install, I got all my files and emails off and back on after the clean install but even though I made backup discs for the Vista OS with all the preinstalled software on them it seems impossible to recover the pre installed programmes--Its Cybersuite I wanted There are no visible setup files on any of the 3 discs and running from booit insists on installing Vista back The only way to do that in Vista was to activate a programme called Recovery Manager whioch would then interogate the discs and allow you to reinstall just the programmes I cant get a download of Recovery Manager that works anywhere We have decoded not to but HP again

    HP WOULD ASK FOR THE SERVICE TAG
    SO , WHY DELAY THAT.????
    YOU CAN NOT GET HELP LACKING THAT.
    NOT ACCURATE HELP, EVER.
    IS THAT CLEAR?

    also , know that each newer windows
    the PNP engine
    can not support drivers on many old systems
    that is is because those are old chips
    and
    1: they dont make them now.
    2: and due to that fact no w10 drivers.

    so that means if you box is old
    ask what you can run on it.first.
    ask HP first.

    most old visa boxes are too old
    to upgrade, much past w7
    if at all.
    there are exceptions.

    learn this too.
    when you upgrade to w10
    its a bit smarter now.
    it will keep some applications and dump half the others.
    I know this for a fact,
    its a new feature too.
    the new OS will make folder with old dead
    program files.
    letting you know the bad news.
    (i like this feature, one if MS best ever)
    so that means if you are unhappy
    you click go back to w7 or vista.
    in 30 days,

    thats only APPS
    but drivers too will be missing
    for very old chips

    eg1
    say a dead audio chip maker,
    a dead video chip maker, like
    any of these (omg endless)
    https://en.wikipedia.org
    /wiki/List_of_defunct_graphics_chips_and_card_companies


    and defunct , wifi chip makers
    the list is endless.

    but not all is bad.
    most w7 drivers that worked in w7 can work on w8 to 10
    can, no promises...

    ive done vast systems and upgrades from w95 to now.
    see all pitfalls. in time.....
    also Linux guy too.,

  • Anonymous Mar 18, 2017

    same is true each version of windows release
    old dead chip makers will be a problem.
    MS even publishes a list of supported chips, (each release)
    and is devoid of VAST dead makers of chips
    MS can not force any dead company to go back to the living, be fun to watch though. (like zombies)

    lets bring back Diamond Multimedia
    or S3

Look at the back of both drives, there should be some tiny jumpers located next to where you plug the data cable in. One drive should be set to master and one drive to slave. Chances are you have both set as master. Change one to slave and your problem should go away.

SOURCE: Unable to reinstall DVD backups after HP SYSTEM RECOVERY failed

Code "purple" means you and your computer are done. It is an unrecoverable error that means you need a new system. However, I have found a couple of postings that claim to know a fix. I can not verify these methods, I do not own a HP or other type of prefab PC (custom is the only way to go). Anyway, here are the links, good luck.

How to bypass gateway administration password windows vista


If you haven't upgraded to at least Win7 when the upgrade was offered from Gateway for just a few dollars, you really blew it. You need to call Gateway and if unavailable, try to locate a new Win7 operating system CD-Rom from a shop that HASn"T been used. Install the Genuine Microsoft Win7 CD-rom, after you back-up your harddrive into an external harddrive and install the upgrade to Win7. (We tekkies don't even bother with VISTA anymore... it was an unstable operating system that Microsoft lost a ton of money on.) If you need to figure out how to back your harddrive in a non-working PC or laptop, check my very thorough post (it's long) for Gateway that won't boot up.

How do I down load Windows 2007 to my computer


Hi,

First of all its not windows 2007, its Windows 7. There are two options. Both need Win7 CD/DVD.

1. if you have currently vista installed, you can upgrade it by inserting the win7 dvd and selecting upgrade.
2. If you want a fresh installation, make sure the win7 DVD is bootable. That means when you insert the dvd in drive and turn you system on, the DVD should start win 7 setup.

Step 2 requires that your first boot device should be the DVD ROM. If you dont know how to check or set this, please revert with what computer do you have. Make/Model.

Upgrades are usually troublesome as they leave bits of the old OS in odd places. It is best to do a clean install.
Choose your OS, either Vista or Win7. XP will not work!
Always download the latest drivers for the OS you are using from hp.com or it will keep hanging and be unreliable.
Hope this helps.

How to upgrade window vista to window 7


Upgrade is not suggested,
I would prefer you to install a fresh copy of Win7 on another partition on your PC's harddrive using a Win7 install CD or from a medium (Harddisk, USB device etc)

Why, because your Vista is in perfect working conditon I guess so, so why spoil it.
Many of the hardwares you use in your PC currently (like printer, webcam etc) work fine now.
But when you install Win7 they will need new drivers for it to function perfeclty and I am sure you'll have diffculty locating them.

So i suggest you keep your exisiting Vista and keep using it for your day to day work.
Install Win7 on a new partition and try to get used to it while installing all required drivers and softwares for them to function.
Once your Win7 is perfect then you can slowly SUNSET Win Vista.
