Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V2555US Notebook ?

Harddrive self test

\015 When i run a Hard Drive Self Test in the BIOS it comes up to "failed #1-07" what does this number mean, and is this problem a 100% hard drive failure, or could it be the motherboard or some other hardware that is causing it? anyone know what "that code" means for hard drive failure. Thank You\015

Answers :

I did a google search to see what results I would get for your request "failed #1-07 none of them who enquired to this problem spoke of the number that came up for you?. But they spoke about not being able to BOOT up to Windows in fact all of them said it!. Thats normally a BIOS update needed. But there was one other person who gave this message which might suit you wellllll at least it wont harm you he said this "Download the diagnostic utility from the HD maker and see what exactly is wrong."
I cannot find anything on this, it may be a fault code because the self test didnt report back correctly, if you are able to boot into windows, right click on your c drive, properties and click tools, then run a check to see if there are any bad sectors or system files.
