error code: biohd-1

HP Recommended

I have a HP Pro 3130 Minitower Desktop PC.

 

Computer will not boot.  F9- diagnostics:

CPU test passed

Hard Drive connection test failed error code BIOHD1

warning drive not detected

suggestion turn off computer and verify cables are connected

memory test passed

 

I have a tech coming tomorrow

 

The most important thing for me is to recover the files on my hard drive: please advise

 

thank you

Hi,

 

As already mentioned, BIOHD-1 code means No communication and most of the time reseating the cable helps. I don't think this would damage the HDD.

 

Good luck.

I have the same problem and I don't think it's a cable seating problem, though I have tried repeatedly reseating the cables.

 

My PC was working fine, I rebooted to load a Windows (security) patch and then got this error.

 

I had previously installed a new HD a few days before and had sucessfully rebotted a few times. This time it failed.

 

I had also remapped my "D" frive, which was previosuly the factory reset volume, and is now the "Z" drive, making way for the new HHD as the "D" drive.   I can't recall whether this was the first reboot since that setting, but am now concerned that the "D" drive itself was used to reboot.  Though I think that unlikely, I'm grasping as straws as what might be wrong.

 

Unfortunalty I can't boot from any other medium.

 

The O/S is Win 7  SP1
