Smart hard disk error 301

I have an HP envy 17-u200 Notebook PC

I noticed I've received three times in a row this message: Smart hard disk error 301


Can this be fixed on your own ? 


and how can we get the recovery disks?


I noticed I have battery issues so I thought replacing the battery could fix it as well, is it possible?

No, the battery situation is unrelated.


That error code means your disk drive is failing and needs to be replaced.

Once you have the replacement drive, read the information below about HP Could Recovery to be used to restore your PC to working condition:

If your PC is a 2016 model or newer, you should see if you can make a bootable USB recovery drive using the HP cloud recovery tool on a working PC.

The recovery drive can then be used to install Win10 and the HP drivers and utilities that originally came with your PC.
