HP Diagnostics- What do they mean?

P145na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I was on a game when I got a BSOD (Blue screen of death.) I ignored it as you usually get them every now and then. I restarted as usual and I opened a program and it crashed; I opened it again and it came up with another BSOD with the error of 'System service exception' when it rebooted, it came up with HP Diagnostics UEFI. I was going to reboot when I thought I should test it as the laptop is around 2 and a half years old. It came back with Memory Slot 2: Bottom slot right failed the memory test (RAM) and Hard Drive 1 component test failed. I am slightly worried as there is only 1 HDD on the laptop and I don't want to lose half of my RAM. Does anybody know what I should do?

Please backup your files/data and replace failed components. HEAT (playing games) killed the machine.

 

Regards.

Would it damage other components if I kept using it till the laptop died?

Also, the pc is fully compatible with the games I play. I make sure the laptop fan is always open and not blocked. Should I clean the laptop fan?
