if it is an HP, the hardrive should be partitioned to send you back to the day it started. A partition is a section of HD that is set aside for a certain task, in this case, recovery. Go to my computer, and check how many drives you have, particulary disk drives (hardrives)

No, not a disk.. Go to my Computer, then look, and count how many drives you have. Please tell me how many, and give me the letters of each one. Then, I can tell you where to go from here.

Crud, you are screwed... You need to call HP and have them send you recovery disks ASAP. That is really the only way to fix this problem. Also, try running Scandisk at startup, and then also try to run Disk Defragmenter, the combination of the two might cure the PCs ailment.
