I am not sure, due to possible confusion of terms, whether or not your hard drive is dead or not. If there is any recognition of your hard drive but you cannot access Windows then you need to first try a Start Up Repair using a Windows 7 Repair Disk you should have made from your system (one can be made from another Windows 7 system as long as it is the same type (32bit/64bit), Install disk or recovery disk. If this does not work and you have a back up of your files, you can try a Factory Restore from your Recovery Partition (see HP manual for the key(s) you need to press at start up to access this recovery console). If you do not have a back up, you can try booting to a Live Linux DVD (not install) to access your hard drive and save your files. If these do not work, you will need to purchase from HP a Recovery Disk Set for your machine at a reasonable charge. You should try this recovery with the original hard drive first, but you will also need this if the hard drive needs to be replaced.
Testing your hardware: Run Memtest86 from a bootable CD to make sure that your 'hard drive problems' are not actually a memory problem. If your memory passes, then you need to actually test your hard drive with a utility from your actual hard drive mfg (it is best here to open system to find hard drive manufacturer from the label, but some say Seagate utility will actually work on others) from a similar CD you burn as well. These may need you to reset your boot order in your BIOS to DVD drive first.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

HP supply a recovery partition which can be accessed by repeatedly pressing F10 at startup, however you might want to try a system restore first. as a recovery will delete all your files and set your machine to the day you bought it.

i hate computers!
