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?

Hi:

 

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.
