HP Envy Hard disk failure, error code 303, I have the failure ID

HP Recommended
hp envy touchsmart 17-j182nr (E8A10UA) notebook
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hard disk failure 303 popped up on my mom’s laptop. We don’t have an external HD to back it up, so I followed the HP assistance bot’s instructions and performed a test on the hard disk. It failed with

failure ID: 0GC442-735AGT-MFGH6J-60XR13

 

how do I determine the meaning of this code?

The meaning is here:

Believe it or not that is all it means. You need to replace the hard drive. We have helped lots and lots of people do just that. Post back if you need that kind of help.

Thank you! 
I’m thinking of replacing it with an SSD. Would there be any issues installing this SSD, and do you have any other recommendations as alternatives?

Perfectly good option. You can buy 2.5 inch SATA SSD on price; they perform pretty close across the board and all the major manufacturers; SanDisk, Samsung, even HP make good ones. Here is the Service manual:

Pages 40-43 spell out how to do it. Good luck.
