  1. Okay i am no good with computers but i need some help.
    So the other day I went to get on my computer, it is not even 2 years old, and all i got was a black screen saying Hard drive failure imment(sp) please back up and replace. then it gave me the option of F1 for setup and F2 for continue so i pressed F2 and it came up with these options on how to start windows and i tried them all and they all did the same thing they would go to the screen with the windows logo and then my computer would try to load only to give up halfway through and restart putting me back to square 1. Ive been told im going to have to reinstall windows, do a recovery, and replace my hard drive i just need some one to tell me the best choice because i need my computer. Oh also if anyone knows the best place to get a hard drive that'd be awesome. By the way my computer is a HP Pavillion a1410y
