Yes the hard drive failed and needs replacement. 

 

Hard drive replacement is illustrated on p. 53 of this manual:

You can use any 2.5 inch wide SATA drive 7 or 9.5 mm thick. It can be a mechanical hard drive or you might want to consider a solid state drive, which is an impressive performance upgrade.

The HP Pavilion dm4 needs to change its hard drive, and I changed its original 640GB hard drive to an SSD 240GB.
