I do I will clear the hard drive (I hope not but, it is what it is)? Cannot get into the laptop other than the start up menu, F8 does not work so I cant back anything up (oh well). system diagnostics memory chech fine, teast 1 (Quick).. error. run/ hard drive failed.

3) How can I download onto usb and then onto Laptop?
4) what is the easiest way to run it on the broken laptop?

Boot into BIOS setup to see if HD is detected. If not try reinstalling the HD to make sure it's still seated correctly. HP ProBook 6455b Notebook PC - Removing and Replacing the Hard Disk Drive - c02451935 - HP Business Support Center. If so run the maker's HD Diagnostic extended boot scan to determine for sure its condition.

Next boot into the Win7 installer provided in step 5 in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times after confirming the Win7 partition or it's 100mb System Reserved boot partition (preferred) is marked Active: Mark Partition Active .

Post back results.

What sometimes happens when dropped is that the HD gets slightly dislodged so it isn't fully making contact. This is why I said that next I'd pull it out to look it over good and then reseat it paying attention to how it makes contact.

But this is a rare situation so it looks like you will at least need a new HD. Google the PC model + HD replacement, then google the HD model replacement to study your options closely including in Shopping view.

What makes you think HD is detected? Did it show a Win7 installation to repair? That neverending Startup Repair is most often an attempt at Disk Check on a bad HD.
