Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


There is no quick fix for your problem.


You will have to replace the HDD and reinstall the operating system unless you have external backup images of your operating system and data. 


You should connect the failing HDD to a different PC to attempt data recovery if you don't do operating system image backups or data backups.
