Message stating "imminent hard drive failure"

HP Recommended

Whenever I turn on my computer I receive a message that states, "Imminent hard drive failure". I've done all the diagnostics and am told to contact HP. Doing that, I am directed to this community board. Anyone can help?

If you want to get rid of that error, you will need to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.


Back up any files you want to save onto a portable hard drive.


The PC may work for days or weeks with that error, or it may not boot up the next time you use it.
