Non-system disk or disk error, replace and strike any key when ready.......PLEASE HELP!

Hi, okayy so this all started just today, but the day before the computer just wouldn't work right and i didn't know what to do with it because it would immediately go to a blue screen after login in my account or any account and then shut off then restart itself. Then today i tried turning it on and all i see is a black screen with typing on it then immediately goes to another black screen that says " Non-System disk error, replace and strike any key when ready" and i don't know what to do with it because it simply just won't do anything (it just stays on that black screen saying that) and im not a computer genious so i would really appreciate someone's help 🙂 Ohh and i have the HP ProBook 4425s just in case anyone needs to know.

Its the hard drive. Likely needs replaced. Tap F10 as you power on and see if you can get into setup and there is a hard drive self-test you can run to confirm.

Well i did the test and it just said it passed then i tried restarting it and tried pressing the F11 but it just won't do anything it's still stuck on the black screen page. So i guess i'll have to replace the hard drive or something but i don't know how? Or who should do it?

If the drive passes the drive fitness test then it is not a mechanical problem with the hard drive....likely just corrupted software or maybe a more general hardware problem like bad memory. But it is unlikely you could have run through the hard drive test if the memory were bad. So I am going with the corrupted hard drive files theory. You can call HP and get a recovery disk for your laptop or just use the Key Code on the bottom to reinstall Windows 7 from any such disk. Some very pernicious viruses can cause issues like this. We are seeing a lot of rootkits these days and to get rid of one of those you really need to do a zero fill or complete nuke of the hard drive. Try running this utility to completely clean the hard drive:
