Try and take out the hard drive and push it back in.
I am looking for a picture to show you where it is.

The error message tells you that there is a problem with the HDD number 0 which in most laptop systems is the primary and only HDD.
Since the BIOS tells you about this problem, it comes before any software is loaded into the system and means that is not a software problem, but a hardware problem.

In other words - your HDD is defective and need to be replaced.

You could try to Borrow a HDD from a friend just to make sure. If you do not get the same error then it is the HD.
