Hi,

 

Hard drive is failing or has failed.


Get hard drive replaced with a new one of similar form factor.

If you're within warranty HP would replace it free of cost

Order recovery USB from HP if you've not created one after first setup of this notebook.

If you've not backed up data from this HDD, take out the hard drive, connect to another PC using SATA to USB adapter. Then copy the files you need using Windows explorer.
