Test the hard drive then the memory modules, post back the results.

Your hard drive has died and needs replace, then you will need HP recovery media to re-install the Operating System.

 

Do you have your rcovery media?

Product number helps me find relevant information for you specific model, no personal info can be gleaned from this number.

 

Recovery media can be made on the PC, and you should have been prompted to do it when you first started the PC when new and set it up., It will be needed if you ever need to reinstall the operating system and the hard drive is bad.

 

You can order it from H{ if you did not make it.

 

Please start you own "New Post" for your specific problem and model of PC, thanks.
