that will be expensive. i just went to microcenter and asked them, they said many hundreds of dollars just to look at it, then like 1600 for the cheapest recovery...
1. stop using it immediately. (after an error like that, you may have only minutes of life left on it)
2. get a 25 dollar external enclosure to put the drive into. If it's IDE make sure you get an IDE enclosure, if SATA, get SATA compat. external enclosure.
3. get another computer, o rgo to a friends house, etc, and try to read your data on their computer after plugging in your hard drive inside the external enclosure.
4. if you can see it, rush like mad to copy the data thats important to your friends computer before the drive is 100% dead.
microcenter and similar stores have external hard drives at $129 dollars for a terabyte. BUY ONE! :-)
PS: rumors go around that if you freeze the hard drive in your freezer for an hour, it helps get the data off, dont know if this is in fact true. Once the drive is dead, it's dead. You cant do much about it unless youre willing to part with a lot of money.

It appears your hard disk has died and it may not be possible for you to retrieve your data.
Remove your hard drive from the laptop and insert it into an USB harddrive adapter, (they are not expensive and you can use it later as a external hard drive). Then plug it into the USB port of a working computer. The computer should/may see it as an external drive, if you are lucky you will be able to copy your data, if not, you are out of luck.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their service.

The 2000-0146 error code indicates a read/write failure of the hard drive. There is at least 1 sector that is failing on the drive. While it is working at the moment, the drive is failing and will over time degrade and eventually fail completely. Backup any important data, then replace the drive.

This looks like a hard drive failure. Just to be sure, please go through the link below for running and interpreting error codes from Dell. Good Luck.

BIOHD-8 is a SMART drive error code. It's issued when SMART thinks your drive is failing. Doing some research it seems that there have been issues with HP computers and this error code occurring but nobody seems to know why.
If you believe that the hard drive is not faulty access the BIOS and look for the option HDD SMART Enable (or similar) and disable it.to enter the BIOS during the boot process you will see for a short amount of time to press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key to enter set up(BIOS)
Do a reboot then get into the operating system and select the C: hard drive properties. On the tools page you will find a hard drive right click select properties tools place a tick in both boxes run it and it will tell you it cannot run as the drive is in use. It will then ask you if you wish to reschedule a test on reboot. Select that option and reboot the machine. This will report and fix and drive protocol errors that have occurred but it will NOT repair the drive if the mechanics are faulty. Replacement is the only way to fix that.
hope this helps
