I am assuming you got this error while trying to install Windows XP. If so, The solution to this problem will result in the LOSS OF ALL DATA ON YOUR HARD DRIVE. This is a two part process.
1) Check to make sure hard drive is seated in laptop well. Enter BIOS and ensure that your hard drive is detected. If not, try the auto detect feature that most BIOS' have and see if this detects your hard drive. If not, try restoring the BIOS defaults and see if that works. If not, hard drive may be bad. Continue to part 2.
2) Insert your Windows XP CD and boot computer from the CD and wait for setup to load.
At the Setup Notification screen, press Enter to continue.
At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, hit Enter to continue.
Read the Windows XP Licensing Agreement and press F8 to agree.
On the Xp Setup screen, you'll create an installation
partition, but first some housekeeping. If you have any existing partitions you must delete all of them before proceeding. After deleting all partitions, select "Unpartitioned space" and pressing
Enter. And then press Enter again to confirm the partition size as is (it should already be set to the maximum size).
Next, select "Format the partition using the NTFS file system" and
press Enter. Xp will now install.
If the same error appears then the hard drive is probably bad.

This model laptop came with a 60Gb hard disk and if you installed a much larger capacity hard disk then the BIOS cannot detect this hard disk. For the BIOS to detect a large hard disk a BIOS upgrade is required (if there is one available) Check the HP/Compaq WEB site to see if there is a BIOS upgrade. If not the try a 120Gb or smaller capacity hard drive. As an alternative - You can keep the existing hard drive in your laptop and use an external USB hard drive to store your data.
for blue screen : just change slot of ram or change ram..
for sata driver : just insert partitionmagic disk and partition your hdd..
otherwise clean your hard disk using any hdd utility or Hiren's Boot CD
Only Hp knows what that means in their diags. Get it shipped back and take it to a Locally owned PC shop and have them take a look at it. It is possible that you have just enough file fragmentation and file structure corruption that it is fail diags. Why did you take it in to be looked at anyways?
It means that your system cannot detect Windows on your hard drive. Check the connections inside if you can. If everything is connected properly, then your hard drive is probably is at fault. You can do a disk check in dos but may not be accurate.
