Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!
I wish I had good news for you -- but I don't ...
There is no "secret" that will fix this, as this error code indicates that your hard drive has encountered a hardware failure -- and needs to be replaced.
If the PC is still under the original one-year HP warranty, you paid for HP Tech Support as part of the warranty coverage, so you might as well make use of it.
While this PC is still under warranty, you should contact HP Customer Support directly to have them put you in touch with HP Technical Support to see what they can do about diagnosing and repairing your machine remotely.
You should ask them about getting a driver replacement, with this PC, you might have to send it in to HP to have that done.

NOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!
If you have trouble finding a phone number, then try: 1 (800) 474-6836
It it's not still under warranty, I would not attempt the drive replacement yourself as the days of loosening one screw to open a hard drive access panel are long gone. Forcing the case apart could easily damage the PC beyond repair, so you would need to consider taking it to a repair facility to have them do it for you.
