Frixmatthew, welcome to the forum.
When requesting help, you should always include the make/model of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.
You should have S.M.A.R.T. capability on the drives. Disconnect each one separately and run the S.M.A.R.T. test from the BIOS on the other. This should identify the failed drive.
Please click "Accept as Solution" if your problem is solved.

Swap the HDDs over and use your Recovery Discs to reinstall the operating system on the good drive - if you don't have these, you can order a replacement set of Recovery Discs using the link below.
If you have any problem with this link, order them directly from HP.
If you live in the US, contact HP Here.
