Any advice next step direction anything would be greatly appreciated!
DV6 series are known enemies. Acquire a new HDD for the machine and count herself lucky that the machine boots at all.
Also do some maintenance and clean out the fluff....

I apologize for the mistake. I was speed-standing when I posted.
Thought it was an HP....
It does indeed sound like a HDD run amok.
Is there a USB HDD enclosure about to which the drive can be connected?

Now you know why the first thing I do before working on a system is make a quickie backup of docs and pics, especially if I run across a scenario where I need to run chkdsk. If you need to run chkdsk, then chances are there could be a hard drive fault on the horizon.
You will need either an enclosure, or a USB/SATA adapter to try and recover data from the present hard drive. Don't run anymore diagnostics on it, don't boot it up and cross your fingers. Everytime that hard drive is on, it can be corrupting/losing data. Pull out the hard drive, hook it up to the enclosure/adapter and hope it is accessible. (<four tries to spell "accessible" correctly)
