Biohd-4 error code

HP Recommended
Hp touchsmart 600-1000
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have an HP touchsmart 600-1000 that that died a few days ago due to hard disk corruption. I bought a new hdd of equal value and inserted 7 Windows os cd. At startup in bios, I messed with the order of boot but wasn't able to get passed an error message. The hdd itself is running fine (ran an extended SMART test). I pressed F9 to diagnose: "boot test failed, error code BIOHD-4".

 

Where do I go from here ?

The motherboard labels the SATA ports, either starting with '0' or '1'.

So, it is the SATA device connected to "Hard Drive at port 4" that the BIOS is identifying.

What is the message associated with that device?

 

Compare to driving a recent automobile, and having the "low tire pressure" lamp on your dashboard light up.

You now know to check the tires -- not the battery nor a door that is ajar -- but you don't know which tire has signalled the condition.

Your computer's BIOS is signalling "something" about the specific SATA port.
