This model has built in multimedia that does not need the operating system (or hard disk) to play movies and music. So it probably is a bad hard drive. Laptop HDs are notorious for failure. That being said, it doesn't take an expert to replace a hard drive and reload the OS and you can get one pretty cheap (<$50) on eBay. DO NOT get a Hitachi or IBM though - my pref is Western Digital or Fujitsu. You will also need the OS disks which you may not have as many systems are putting the install disks on the 1st HD sector. You can usually order disks cheap from HP if you have your purchase info. If you can downlaod and burn an iso image to CD from another computer, the "Ultimate Boot Disk" (search Google) is a great free testing CD.
