Please help me to solve this problem and your valuable advise.
I'm afraid it sounds very much like your hard drive has failed.
Besides checking all the physical connections (sata and power connections) there is not much can be done. The system can't even recognise that your hard drive is there. Do you have any important data on there and is it backed up?
I have the same problem, but the message after F4 is "Hard Disk Not Exist".
Can I do something? is possible to use a minicard flash, or pendrive like a hd? Sorry about my English, I'm a brazilian girl.
Thank you for all.
So when you hit F2 and then hit F4 what does it say?
Typically on an HP if you have a bad drive it will tell you within the first minute or 2 of running. But let it run completely.
If it passes that, then you have probably corrupted or wiped out your drive and it is not able to boot. Reinstall the OS that came with the machine.
