hardware issues

I think I mihgt have a 'slight' issue with my notebook. I accidentaly closed it a bit harder than I should have and now it's giving me the error warnings about HDD failing and backing up my things. I tried to 'fix' it myself by pressing F1 untill it gave me the option to start up and execute the Windows self repair. It was functioning (by that I mean the operation was in progress) but after it finished I didn't see anything. The screen was just blacked out. Nothing on it. Any ideas what to do next?

Re: hardware issues

Hello Bianca5,


Welcome to the HP Forums! I hope you enjoy your stay!


I understand the computer no longer works properly, and you already tried a hard reset. At this point, I would consider calling HP phone support. The computer is broken and should be repaired. You can utilize this website to learn how to contact HP appropriately, based on your region: Contact HP Worldwide

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums. Have a great day!


I worked on behalf of HP.

Re: hardware issues

Hi Mario and thank you for the welcome. I already tried everything possible I could think of and now decided it would be best to just buy new replacement parts. So thank you for your time and reply.
