It can either be that your bios have been configured improperly some how. Or that your hard drive has went out. You would be able to know if it is the hard drive by knowing if there has been any clicking at all. If you have then the hard drive has went out and will no longer work. If this isn't the case then for the bios all you would have to do is just reset the bios to default. If this doesn't work then you can flash them with the latest from here:http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=3375954&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3375952 just click on the operating system that you will be installing and then click on bios. Then follow the instructions once you have the file downloaded. If that doesn't work and it turns out you were wrong about the hard drive then you will have to replace it. And you have two options for getting a replacement. Order it directly from hp http://h20141.www2.hp.com/hpparts/default.aspx?mscssid=826D01A14EBE4CF4B6978D305A1C0FAD or find it elsewhere for much cheaper. The cheapest you can get is a 40GB drive and it is only $13.49 on newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822116178 it is that cheap because it has been recertified. The largest you can get is a 1TB drive which would be virtually endless space for people that don't have a bunch of stuff as well as a slow internet connection it is only $169.99 and in my opinion I would say that is a really cheap hard drive for its size http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136545 for installing a new drive refer to hp:http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01179993/c01179993.pdf just click on replacing a hard drive to the left in the list and it will give you step by step instructions.
