Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

Are you referring to BIOHD-2?

 

This means your HDD has failed.

 

You will have to replace the HDD.

 

Your recovery options are determined by the following constraints:

 

1.The Windows operating system you are using.

2. The backup methods you have used to safeguard data.

3. The backup methods you have used to recover the operating system.

 

Regards

Hi, @TeachTMD 

 

I think it could be worse than that on your model since it has the infamous Violet 6 motherboard.

 

That motherboard was prone to drive controller failure.

 

So, there is probably nothing wrong with the hard drive itself.

 

See this discussion...

Hi,

 

Thanks Paul.

 

So data recovery is a viable option.

 

Operating system recovery may be DOA.

You're very welcome.

 

If the DVD drive is still detected, the OP can try hooking the hard drive up to the DVD drive's sata port and see if it will boot from that port.

 

If the hard drive is still good, yes the data should be able to be recovered.
