if this is true, how do I do a recovery I have 3 discs. Could someone walk me thru this? My DVD ROM doesn't work either so I am using an HP external DVD writer will priority need to be changed in bios?

biohd-8 is a hard drive "SMART" failure. Unfortunately, a recovery will not help...the hard drive must be replaced.
I am an HP employee.

a hard drive shouldn't have to be replaced in an 18 mo old computer. I will never buy another HP product. I have read where the motherboard was replaced in newer units after 9-2010. If HP thinks they can get away with this type of crap of a product it won't take long before HP and Best Buy are both out of business.

and the kickbacks to PC Doctor (F9) so this is how the elections are won, someone programming things to go a certain way, I feel like HP and PC Doctor are in cahoots.
