Hi there hey try this ok you are going to have to remove the hard drive from the computer that u are using and put in a nother computer make sure that it is recognized as a slave ok than boot from it and back up the hard drive onto a disk ok best regards mike
I am sure that noone wants to tel you thins but when you go the Hard disk failer iminent that was so you woudl shut it down and transfer everything onto another disk. Once it crashes, such as your has, you cannot recover the data w/o very expensive equiptment or costly contracting out the HD for data recover. \015\012    About the only thing that you can do now is replace the hard drive, download a  \015\012recovery disk from HP,if one is available, for your model, If you have not already made one, and reinstall the software from the disk.
