Windows 7: HP Hard-Drive Error

HP Hard-Drive Error

My newer HP hard-drive essentially crashed. I cannot start Windows normally what-so-ever or even access Safe Mode. I was able to get into the diagnostics and run hardware tests. Everything passed except when it came to the hard-drive. It said the hard-drive had the BIOHD-8 error. How can this problem be resolved?

The issue for sure is BIOHD-8 and nothing else. So once again what can be done to fix the issue not just show me the issue.

That kind of error is not good, i would advise downloading a bootable HDD diagnostic tool from manufacturers website (or seatools from seagate site as its pretty good) and run a full HDD scan, should give you a better idea of whats going on and whether the drive is recoverable, but i afraid to say i wouldnt get your hopes up
