Solved!

Error on HDD

HP Recommended
Pavillion DM1
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello there,

 

I have an issue with my notebook and when running scan it throws  hard disk 1 RGD55D-5KG501-MFH14J-60Q503 error

 

Seems like the HDD is damaged but I want to know if the code tells me something about what kind of issue is the HDD getting.

 

Thank you for your support

Arturo

Hi, Arturo:

 

Those codes usually don't provide any useful info.

 

Most of the code is used to decipher your notebook's serial number.

 

Here is the report generated by the failure code you posted, minus your notebook's serial number.

RGD55D-5KG501-MFH14J-60Q503OKXXXXXXXXXX1/1/10303StorageFloppy Drive, Hard Drive, Memory Drive, Optical Drive, SCSI, Tape DriveHard Disk 1 Quick Test Failure

 

Normally the only fix is to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.

You're very welcome.

 

What storage capacity and type do you want?

 

Do you want to replace it with the same kind, or upgrade to a solid state drive?

I would need to evaluate that.

It will all depend on the cost but the standard solution would be for the same one

From what I could tell from the serial number of your notebook, the parts list indicates that it came with a 500 GB hard drive.

 

This would be a comparable replacement to the one that failed on you....$43.00

This would be a higher performing solid state drive...$54.00

Excellent I will go with SDD then.

Also on the specs that I found, (could not found any on hp website) https://www.cnet.com/products/hp-pavilion-dm1-3080la-11-6-e-350-3-gb-ram-320-gb-hdd/

 

seems like is 320 gb 3 Ram.

You're very welcome.

 

If your notebook has a 320 GB drive, they don't make any SSD's with that capacity.

 

You would have to go smaller with 250 GB or the 500 GB size.

 

This is the 250 GB...$40.00

You can find the drivers for your notebook at the link below.  I hope you have a way to reinstall W7.
