Having troubles during startup

HP 15 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32-bit)

My computer is having problems with startup/booting up windows will not open.

It says "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause."

"The Boot configuration dare for your PC is missing or contains errors"

I get a failure id: 9K544K-7T2A0J-MFPWMF-60U703 when I run system/ dianog tests which it fails at as well 

My battery needs to be replace but I am not sure if that is causing the problem with it or something else as I am not computer savy 


Thank you to those who take the time to read this and help me

The message is  "Hard Disk 1 Quick Test Failure"  which means a replacement and re-install.


The 2 batteries are...

697917-001  --  Battery for real-time clock (RTC)

776622-001 --  3 CELL BATTERY 31WHr 2.8AH LI LA03031DF


The hard drive....

669299-001 500 GB SATA HDD - 5,400 RPM, 2.5-inch form factor (raw drive)


You can source one to a better spec if you want to.


If in doubt please ask.



Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn.
