Check cable connections at back of drive 1 are firmly connected.

Try a new SATA cable to drive 1.

✔ Best Answer
Plagiarized from the HP support site -

As indicated, you need to run a HDD test:

1. Restart the computer.
2. Keep tapping the F10 key when the HP logo appears. This will take you to Bios Setup Utility.
3. Select the Diagnostic tab.
4. Select the "hard drive self test" option and press enter to perform the test.
Note: This test may take up to 40 minutes or more.

Pass - The hard drive is not damaged.
Fail - the hard drive is damaged and may need to be replaced.
