I've a HP notebook which 2 years old. So, it's out of warranty. Recently, my laptop's screen went blank and when I performed the system test, it showed 'Hard drive DST check failed'. Upon browsing online, I got to know that I need to replace the hard drive. I would like to know which model I should go for and what other things I need to take care of before buying one.

Since you have an Intel processor you can install an SSD drive.
256 GB SSD (for computer models equipped with an Intel processor) 749761-001
512 GB SSD (for computer models equipped with an Intel processor) 749762-001
1 TB, 5400 rpm, +8 GB NAND hybrid, 9.5 mm 731999-001
750 GB, 5400 rpm, +8 GB NAND hybrid, 9.5 mm 732001-001
500 GB, 5400 rpm, + 8 GB NAND hybrid, 7 mm 732000-001

Thanks for the informative response. Can you suggest me any SSDs which I can buy (or can you provide me the links)? And if I choose to stick to HDD, what should be the cache memory that I should be looking for? Because there are hard drives with 16MB cache and 8MB cache with other features being the same.
