Hi

https://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/hp-pavilion-15-p000-notebook-pc-series/6936226/model/7255717/ma...

 

I suggest buying a new hard drive, and a caddy to mount the old drive, after....


PLEASE POST ANY RESULTS.
First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat; Re-Connect the AC adapter.

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.

Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).

Eliminating the Main Board as the failure point by running the tests again.

For when you have a new HDD.

 

If in doubt please ask.
