Question about PC Desktops
I am getting error HD521-2W that won't allow me to load destop configuration.
That error message means is your hard drive is failing or has completely failed.
I doubt you will be able to boot to it, but you can try pressing function key F8 just before Windows starts trying to load and select Safe mode or you can also try from the same menu, Last Known Good.
If you can not get that far and you have valuable data you need to recover, save the old drive and install (or have installed) a replacement drive and install the O/S on the new drive. Once that is working, add the old drive back in as a slave and with a little luck, you may be able to back up some of your data.
If your data is extremely valuable (meaning you are willing to pay to get it back) there are services available that will retrieve all the data from your drive.
Let me know if you need more help or advice.
