    hi nic,

    thanks for your assistance, but let me clarify the problem i've got to my desktop.

    it's rebooting and rebooting without stoping, then after taping F9 for diagnostic i'v noticed this error to the device that failed.

    thanks in advanced to help again.

Rebooting forever is either memory fault or the HDD have corrupt system files. From the BIOHD-8, it sounds like HDD issue. Try download "HDD Regenerator 1.51" CD ISO, burn to DC and scan to whole Harddrive. This nice software is designed to recover corrupt/bad sectors. I had a friends PC falls into this case. 1 bad sector was found and recovered within 2GB from start where most Windows system files are stored. Then reboot and windows do a chkdsk automatically, and resolved!

    Pretty unusable advice if you are completely unable to bring up windows....I have the same prob...comp wont boot in safe mode either....Got HP on the line....ran diagnostist....got a HDD failure code BIOHD-8. When HP heard this code they basically said ....you're done son!! They immediately switched from support to we will send you a new HDD. Seems that they have seen this problem before and the most viable fix is replacement

If you are getting errors from the hard drive diagnosis, the solution is--replace the hard drive. Don't mess with it. You can install the defective hard drive as a second drive and possibly lift data from it. Keep messing with it and you may lose more data.

I have an error code of BIOHD-8, what does this mean and can it be fixed?


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

Disconnect the Floppy, CD/DVD and any other Drive you have connected and boot the machine. If the machine boots shut it down and connect the disconnected devices 1 at a time until you have it isolated. If the Computer doesn't boot and you still get the same fault then your hard drive has faulted try a different drive.

I AM GETTING AN ERROR FOR MY HARD DRIVE,ERROR BIOHD-8.COMPUTER WON'T WORK.


BIOHD-8 is an error code that refers to the hard disk SMART capability. So this is an indication that your hard drive might be failing or at least lost its' SMART capability. So you need to back up your data just in case. Enter your computer BIOS menu and check for HDD SMART capability and set it to Disabled. Restart your computer and try to go through the same things that made problems before. If your problems persist then you'll need to replace your hard drive.
