I'm receicing the error Boot Device Not Found when i power on my HP G60-235DX laptop. After following HP's recommended troubleshooting steps, I receive error Hard disk not exist. Hmmmm....that's a little concerning. My guess is I need a new hard drive? I have the 17 recovery disks I made when I setup this laptop, however I'm not sure if they will resolve this issue. Any suggestions?

One of 3 things has happened, listed from most likely to least likely
1. Hard drive has died, replace it with one of the same size or larger, then use the HP recovery discs to re-install windows.
2, The motherboard has serious problems. (Replace the notebook)
3. The hard drive cable that connects it to the motherboard has somehow failed, not very likely. (replace the cable)
Replace the hard drive with a new one and use your recovery discs to get Windows back on it.
Here is your service manual, will show you how to replace the hard drive
