Unless there is something odd going on, this sounds like a simple Disk failure.

 

If the system won't boot at all, nothing, no response, the decision is simple: 

Replace the disk, Reload the OS, Retrieve your personal files and folders from your backup.

 

If the system still boots but complains or threatens to die, see if you can get a last backup of your data to catch the most recent of your files / changes.  If the disk dies before you can catch one last backup, you will have to use your last (most recent) backup to retrieve your personal data after you replace the disk and install Windows (or have it done by a technician).

 

If you wish to repair the computer yourself - or get information for the purpose of taking it to a repair shop, the parts and how-to information is available in the Service Guide:

HP Pavilion Notebook 17 Models 17-g000 - 17-g099 AMD Models - Maintenance and Service Guide

 

====================================================================

 

Use the system's serial number to check PartSurfer for a list of components in your computer.

 

Check for parts at the PartSurfer Website / HP Parts Store

 

Open PartSurfer

  • Select your Country
  • Enter the device Product Number , Serial Number, or Part Number in the Quick Search box
  • HINT: To see a system-specific list, replace the Product Number with your device Serial Number
  • Items accompanied by a tiny box in the Add-to-Cart column are available for purchase

 

NOTE >> Parts marked as "n/a" are not available from HP.

 

 

Parts marked as available for purchase might be available from:  HP Parts Store

OR

If HP does not provide the part for retail purchase,

Use your search engine to find the part number at your favorite online store.

 

====================================================================

 

If the computer is under warranty - or even if not - and you want help from HP, open a case for warranty service.  If the computer is not under warranty, mention when you submit the case that you are willing to pay for service.

From HP:  HP Fraud Alert: Protect Yourself from Scams, Report Suspicious Calls

 

From HP > CAUTION

Recently, HP has seen an increased number of third-party support websites selling HP driver downloads or diagnostic tools. Many of these websites use the HP trademark symbol and claim to be official HP distributors.

 

If your product supports your operating system, HP offers your driver and software at no additional cost through the HP website.

 

Use caution when dealing with any website that asks you to pay for HP driver downloads or tools that claim to diagnose your HP products. These websites might not be affiliated with HP in any way.

 

Do not install BIOS updates from a motherboard manufacturer's website. Only install BIOS updates from HP. Installing BIOS updates from the motherboard manufacturer can prevent the computer from accepting an HP system recovery. This could result in a loss of data.
