this error appears to mean the system thinks your hard drive is bad. you can try to see if it is seated properly. try booting to safe mode [F8] . if it is bad youll need a new drive looks like from the model # you provided it has a 320 gb sata hd. can get a replacement for $50 or so depending on size/brand
just found hp's troubleshooting guide says to remove and reseat hd, then run hard drive check and respond to question.
