My computer will not boot up at all. When I click the power button, the HP screen comes up and takes me to a blck screen that says:

Samsung HD501LJ Hard disk failure is imminent. Please back up your hard disk and have it replaced. It then gives me the option to hit f10 or f2. I did an extended test and it gives me the error failed. Ran an Intel scan and it gave me the error message BIOHD-5 failed.

HP support sucks so hard. I'm left here clueless. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you guys :thumbsup:

Sounds like your hard drive has failed, If you cant get into windows your best bet would be to dowload a linux live CD such as Ubuntu, and see if you can get your files copied off of it, and then to order a new hard drive. Any Sata Hard drive should work.

That's just peachy :thumbsup:. This sounds expensive. I just purchased this computer 11 months ao and I have a hard drive failure already? Is this a common thing with HP computers? I had a Dell previously and it lasted for over 7 years.

Actually, a new 500 Gig hard drive should only cost between 60 and 70 dollars, however, if you just purchased it 11 months ago, and assuming you bought it new, your computer should still be under warranty, and I have had extensive experience with HP customer service and found them nothing but helpful, if your computers still under warranty theyll make sure it gets fixed free of charge.
