Hard drive test failed

Hi,


If hard drive failed in System Diagnostics test, you've to replace the hard drive with a new one of similar form factor

 

To salvage data from failed HDD, you can try to boot from LiveCD (you've to create this from another PC) , then copy the files you need to external drive

Use HP Recovery USB that you should've created after first setup of this notebook, to factory reset after replacement
