Question about Computers & Internet
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.

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
