OK, you said you Replaced the failed drive, but did you do Anything to the new drive?

 

Because if it's blank, then of course, you are not going to be able to boot from it.

Ok so it has to be blank because when I installed it nothing came up when I turned it on but hard drive passed so I would have to purchase windows disc to install it?!

No, you would not.

 

How old is the PC?  Asking because if it is fairly new, you might be able to use HP Cloud Recovery tool to restore it.

That's impressive!  So what did it come with, Win7?  

 

Unfortunately, only the newer PCs will work with HP Cloud Recovery and HP no longer stocks Win7 recovery media.

 

So, if you have to reset your PC, you would have to download and create media from Microsoft to reinstall Windows.
