bootmgr is missing
Hi

Please forgive me if i am not posting in the right place. I am a computer novice.

I have a hp p6310y desktop

windows 7

I have not installed any new hardware or made any changes

I was browsing on a guitar website this morning when i was unable to close the browser. I did a ctl alt del and when the computer re booted it went to a blue screen and then defaulted into a diagnostic test.

during the memory test it advised me that i had a biohd-8 error, I re booted and now it is telling me the bootmgr is missing.

hp support was no help.

any ideas? thank you in advance

The hard drive may be failing or failed. Test it (chkdsk /r is a good start). Make sure that you have a safe recent backup of the entire system to restore to a new hard drive if needed.
