Hard Drive Primary HDD Bay Failure

HP Recommended
Laptop 15-bw0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

My HP laptop 15-bw0xx is not able to get past the boot-up screen anymore and does not load. I ran a Hard Drive Short DST Check, and it failed. I got the Failure ID: 6CX33F-8T7AAS-XD7URG-60TQ03 .

 

Product ID: 1VK25UA#ABA

I no longer have a warranty, so what are my options? Will I have to replace my hard drive? I would prefer not to if possible; but if so, where can I find good hard drives? Please let me know if any more information is needed.

You will need to install a new hard drive and reinstall the operating system.

 

You may want to consider purchasing a better performing solid state drive (SSD).

 

If you can live with 500 GB of storage, this drive provides the best performance for the price, IMHO.

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

 

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

You will need to have access to another Windows PC running W7 64 bit or newer and a 32 GB USB flash drive.
