Hello @Daddysmell 

 

It means your hard drive failed and needs to be replaced. Hopefully you always backup your data, right?

That's not to say whats there is completely lost, but I have no way of knowing the extent of the failure.

You can replace the drive and install Windows again. You don't need an activation key if you were using Windows 10.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Hey @Daddysmell 

 

Looks like you posted another question that was deleted perhaps.

Did you ask if its worth it to replace the hard drive?

IF so, that's a good question and its really dependent on what you can afford.

That system is over 7 years old now and it was a slow machine when it was new.

That kind of performance would really hinder you for just about anything unless you just need an email machine.

 

I would say if you can, you will be much happier with a new system that uses an SSD drive and will be so much faster.

If you need a recommendation, don't hesitate to ask.
