Your machine is an old HP Pavilion dv7 series and from my memory those machines have 2 HDD bays. Manual

All standard 2.5" HDD drives for notebooks/laptops should fit. You can use 1TB + 1TB or even 2TB + 2TB using

So I started asking questions because I am getting hard drive warnings when the laptop booted.  Specifically 302

I run the quick test on both hard drives and they both fail the quick test.

Both hard drives pass the read test.

It seems odd that both hard drives would have "failure immanent" at the same time.

How do I prove I have two failing hard drives?

They may come out same batch or same ages. I did post few times: I bought two 512GB of 2.5" SSD drives same day. After nearly 4 years, they failed within same week even they were on 2 different machines.

Thank you for the quick response, Now I just need to decide if it's worth sticking $250 into an older lap-top, or just replace it.
