This indicates a hard drive problem, but! first remove the hard drive and re-seat it back in place, "sometimes it goes out of position" and is enough to restart it, if no change! use your recovery disc to reload windows. Now! if it fails to load up chances are it is probably a bad hard drive, but I recommend having it tested before replacement of the hardware.
Before you attempt it, make a couple of changes in the BIOS to hopefully work around a few problems that might crop up. At reboot, tap the F2 key to enter setup that will allow you to make a change in the BIOS. Disable caching module before you change the drive sata settings. Set the hard drive to "ATA compatible."
i presume you have not formatted the drive yet. first make sure there is a restore partition on the drive.... after that go into the start menu and look for a menu item called restore or restore tools .... i'm not 100 % familiar with that computer but the basics of restoring the system are generic.
