Laptop does not boot-up

HP-17-ca0044cl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP17" laptop will not boot up, run UEFI diagnostics, it passed "Smart Check", failed "Short DST", the failure ID is:

"UBQFL8-98RA04-MFGJ3F-60XG03". The warranty just passed a couple of months ago. Could someone help me, and let me know how can I replace the hard disk? Do I need a boot-up disk with Windows'10 recovery system? unfortunately I did not make the back up disk before, thank you in advance for any help you may provide here! Jim

Hi

The error message is indeed a hardware failure...  Hard Disk 1 Quick Test Failure

 

From 2016 onwards there is a possible recovery option via the cloud...
HP Consumer PCs - Using the HP Cloud Recovery Tool (Windows 7 & 10)
https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06162205

AND/OR

Having a 1.0TB SATA hard disk drive - 5,400 RPM, 7.0mm form factor - Raw drive, does not include hard drive bracket or screws.

So shop around and find what suits you best. 

A caddy to mount the old drive in with the hope of recovering data may be a good idea, but not guaranteed to work.

If in doubt please ask.

Hi, Lil_Boy_Blue:

 

Thank you so much for your help, I followed your directions and downloaded "HP Cloud Recovery Tool" into a 32GB USB drive. Then I power the laptop on and press "ESC" key. I pressed "F9", It led me to the boot option, then I selected "boot from USB drive", but it stopped there. The Windows system never backed on. so my follow up question is: Do I need to replace the bad hard disc first with the new one in order for the "recovery disk" to work? or my laptop had more serious problem?

 

Thanks again!

Jim

Hi

The Recovery Tool runs scripts before installing and I GUESS your system is deemed unsuitable.

 

So yes I would replace the HDD first.
