Hp Pavilion p6300 series desktop will not start. After it powers on, it shows at the bottom of a black screen "Repairing disk errors, this might take a few hours to complete." So, I F9 to run tests using the Diagnostic​ Tool.

@Beckysuner, welcome to the forum.

 

The error message that you are receiving is telling you that the hard drive has failed.  You will have to replace it with a drive the same size or larger than the failed drive.  I hope that you have a backup of your personal data or it will be lost.

 

Here is a guide to help you replace the drive.

Hi Beckysuner,

 

 

The Error BIOHD-8 is a hard drive error. To resolve this issue, try to boot your system with the help of a USB Drive and try to run the CHKDSK command on it.

 

 

Good Luck!!!
