My fathers computer has an error on it:
"Loading PBR for descriptor 2...failed"
He cant do anything on the computer at all.

He pressed F12 Hard drive diagnostics and this is what he got:

Drive 0 ST380819AS - Fail return code 7
Drive 1 No device
Drive 2 HL-DT-ST-CD RW/DVD Rom GCC4482B
Drive 3 No device Diagnostics not supported.

Can ANY ONE help us?

Dell computer?

"Fail return code 7" means the drive will die sooner rather than later. Replace it and get anything important off it now before it packs up altogether.

Thank you for your help!
