Have a hp computer that has gone toes up. Think it is the hdd, but not sure.
here is what happened. turn the unit on and it started to spool up then went into recycle mode. wounld not load up windows. tryed to restart in safe mode, nothing there, would not load up. tryed to do a restore, no luck, went then to recovery, and started recovery. Formattef hdd ok, and it started transferring windows files, got to 4% and started having trouble opening files. Tryed to restart recovery again and it did the same thing, on the third retry, got message that users partion could not be formatted and unit went in shutdown.
Is this a hdd problem or processor failure.? Don't knom enough about bios to mess with it so i don't.
