That error is typically a sign the hard drive has failed.  You can try the diagnostic from the Esc menu on boot up to verify that fact.  Start tapping Esc and then try to start the PC, while still tapping the esc key.  When the popup menu is viewable, then run the diagnostics for the hard drive.

If the hard drive fails, then it needs to be replaced, which means all the documents will be lost if no backups were made.

 

BTW: typing in all caps is rude behaviour
