Hi guys,I have an hp gaming laptop 15-cx0056 and the internal hard drive is damaged and needs to be replaced and I was just wondering what kind of hard drive I need since I’m not well enough versed in this. I have an 8th gen core i5 processor 8GB RAM and 1TB hard drive currently. I’d like another 1TB I just didn’t know if I needed to know anything more specific before buying.
After you replace the drive, your notebook should be supported by the HP cloud recovery tool which you can use to make 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...
