✔ Best Answer
Usually means your hard drive is failing.

You could try to run more advanced hard drive diags to see.

To get data, you'd need to get and boot to a live cd. Then move data off to some other usb hard drive maybe. Never and easy fix when it comes to hard drive.

I doubt you can just edit something or some easy fix.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

iI know this sounds stupid but what do you mean boot to a cd? Im not kidding about being an unexperienced senior. Talked to hp people tonite they said hard drive dead going to send another but would like to retrieve anything possible off this one as they want it sent to them in exchange. dont like that cause i heard they can acess personal info etc. true? apparently this is a hp warranty issue. thanx for any insight.
