HP Recommended
HP Pavilion TS Sleekbook 14
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

My hp laptop is not booting its saying "Preparing Automatic Repair" and after some time blank screen appears.


Please see the product details given below


Laptop details Product Name :   HP  Pavilion TS Sleekbook 14Model Number : 14b1727xSerial Number [removed per Rules Of Participation] I have done a hard disk test and its failed. Please see the failure details given below. Failure ID: 9PPt2X-6N995D-MFPWXG-60DH03 Could you please inform me what may be the issue based on the failure ID details. Do I need to replace my HDD. Note: I am using hp laptop for the past 4 years, I am facing new issues every year and I am fed up with this product. Initially after 1 year touchscreen stopped working, then after 1 year battery is gone and replaced, now in early this year display is gone and replaced, Now its seems like HDD is gone. I think its better to some other brand product.  Please inform me what is the next step I need to do with this issue. Please have a look at the failure ID. Any help would be appreciable.  Thanks Nessy Hamsa

Hard Disk 1 SMART Hard Drive Detects Imminent Failure






Buy a new HDD and read thru this...


This First part only works when a valid Recovery Partition is enabled.
If it displays an error message then move onto the Second Part:-
OR if you have data you wish to try and save using the XCOPY command.
Then create your own Repair/Recovery/Rebuild/Re-install media or buy a set from HP.

Turn off the computer.
Disconnect all connected devices and cables, Media Drives, USB drives, printers, & faxes.
Remove media from internal drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware.
Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, or power cord.

Turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key, about once every second,
until the Choose an option screen is displayed, and then continue.

On the Choose an Option screen, click Troubleshoot, and work your way through the screens.

Second Part:-
This may require another PC. Find and Download your .iso from…
(You will need a NON_OEM key for W7);
W8.x and W10 should activate automagically from their embedded licence key.

For when it’s a NON MS OS ( iOS / Linux ) creating the install media.

A 3rd party site is (Please be careful)...

Expand/Extract/Burn the iso Image onto a DVD/USB as needed.
Microsoft’s Creator Tool will make the required DVD or USB.

Even though it has NO actual HP software/drivers included, you may be able to
XCOPY the C:\Users\* area onto a ‘large’ USB stick, via the Command Prompt.

You’ll need to try various drive letters; D:..-..Z: until it’s matched - could be G; mine’s S:

C:\>XCOPY C:\Users\* S:\ /e /i /h (then files like those 3 listed below get copied over)

C:\Users\All Users\agent.1509128044.bdinstall.bin
C:\Users\All Users\HP Deskjet 2540 series\Help\flash\zoom.swf

Then you can try System Recovery Options / Advanced Options shown in the screenshots.

NB:- W7 Try running a Startup Repair more than once for a full fix.
NB: - W10 Begin with the Automatic Repair, then Startup Settings etc.

From either the C:\ or the X:\ prompt try the following

cd boot
bootrec /FixMBR
bootrec /FixBoot
bootrec /RebuildBCD

If the above FAILS then please try:-


You may need to change the Secure/Legacy  boot option, and the boot sequence also.
