System - Failed - Q0E3MT-7K08KD-GXPSL1-608F03 - 4/19/2017 This is the code I am receiving. I have had no luck finding out what is wrong. If it is a bad hard drive I am pretty upset. I have never ever had to replace a hard drive and that fact that HP will charge me to speak to support since my warranty has expired! Pretty sad. Plus when I diagnosed it on my computer it doesn't say hey your hard drive is dying you need to replace it. Plus my crystal disk program is saying its good. I am so confused about what is going on with this desktop. Its only 2 years old!

Can you remove the disk-drive from your computer, and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some other computer.
Then, Google-search for "download free SPECCY".
Download/install/run SPECCY, expand the "Storage" section, and expand the section for that "slave" disk-drive, and check the S.M.A.R.T. monitoring. If everything is "good", then that "slave" disk-drive is good, and your problem is "elsewhere".

If that other computer (temporarily connected to that "slave" disk-drive) is an HP computer that is still under warranty, and you get the same failure-code, will HP charge you to talk to them?
