Hi:

 

If your notebook generated a 24 character short DST failure code, you will need to replace the hard drive, and reinstall the operating system.

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the hard drive removal and replacement procedure.

You may want to consider replacing the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a better performing, normally more reliable 2.5" solid state drive (SSD).

 

After you replace the drive you can use the HP cloud recovery tool to reinstall W10, the drivers and the software that originally came with your notebook.

 

Here is an info link for how to use that utility...
