My laptop hp 15-n029sg was showing the imminent hard drive failure message. I have checked the hard drives through "Check Now" options. Every time I scan some problem is found and I fix it accordingly. But then again it shows some problems are found when scanned again. Is there any way I can find out where the problem is gone or not?
Eventually I guess I have to replace the hard drive. Can anyone suggest the proper i.e compatable hard drive for my laptop?

The drive on the link below is an example of one that would be fine for your notebook.
The procedure to replace the Hard Drive starts on Page 77 of your Maintenance & Service Guide.
Once done, simply use your Recovery Media to reinstall the Operating System on the new drive - this procedure is detailed in the following HP document.
If you don't have your Recovery Media, see if you can order a replacement set using the link below.
If you have any problem with this link, try ordering this directly from HP.
