I am sure that noone wants to tel you thins but when you go the Hard disk failer iminent that was so you woudl shut it down and transfer everything onto another disk. Once it crashes, such as your has, you cannot recover the data w/o very expensive equiptment or costly contracting out the HD for data recover. About the only thing that you can do now is replace the hard drive, download a recovery disk from HP,if one is available, for your model, If you have not already made one, and reinstall the software from the disk.
