Where can we look up Failure ID codes?

HP Elitebook G4
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

SMART check fails - hard drive issues prevent boot-up

 

Where do I check what the failure code means?

Failure ID (from extensive Hard Drive check) : RU44RL-000A0E-MFGGQK-60FP03 ... Product ID : X4B26AV

@Dean_C_NZ 

 

The details of the code are available to HP internal.

 

The failure code means what you already know, except - if the computer will not boot at all - it sounds like the disk has indeed already failed.

The disk needs to be replaced.

 

After replacement and OS installation:

Recover your data from your backups (File History, manual, third party software) - "whatever" you have been using to keep your personal data safe and recoverable).

 

If the device is under warranty, contact HP for warranty repair.

From HP:  HP Fraud Alert: Protect Yourself from Scams, Report Suspicious Calls

 

From HP > CAUTION

Recently, HP has seen an increased number of third-party support websites selling HP driver downloads or diagnostic tools. Many of these websites use the HP trademark symbol and claim to be official HP distributors.

 

If your product supports your operating system, HP offers your driver and software at no additional cost through the HP website.

 

Use caution when dealing with any website that asks you to pay for HP driver downloads or tools that claim to diagnose your HP products. These websites might not be affiliated with HP in any way.

 

Do not install BIOS updates from a motherboard manufacturer's website. Only install BIOS updates from HP. Installing BIOS updates from the motherboard manufacturer can prevent the computer from accepting an HP system recovery. This could result in a loss of data.
