Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet
Keep getting hard disk failure iminent msg how do i fix or do i replace hard drive
You need to open the case (make sure power and everything is unplugged), which if slightly harder on a All-in-one PC. But when you do. you'll see a hard drive (google images) you need to unplug it from its cable and replace it with a new one. And depending on the problem, you could try get it fixed, take it to a repair shop, if not, transfer all your data onto the new hard drive by mirroring it. Then place the new hard disk in place of the old one.

If you are receiving this kind of error message, it can often be an indicator that a self-diagnostic tool has determined that your computer may be suffering from a hardware failure.
Whenever your computer starts up, it performs a self-test to ensure that everything is working properly. If your computer detects anything out of the ordinary, it generally prompts you with an error message indicating what the problem may be.
While your computer may seem to function normally at this time, I would strongly suggest backing up any necessary information as soon as possible to avoid any potential loss.
In some instances, you may be able to determine the exact reason why you are receiving an error message by using a software tool developed by either Microsoft or the hard drive manufacturer itself. Please keep in mind however, that you may receive more detailed and product-specific support when using a manufacturer-developed diagnostic utility over Microsoft's CHKDSK.
If you are unsure how to use any these programs and are still under the manufacturer's warranty, you may wish to contact HP directly for further assistance. Additionally, if you would prefer to not work directly with HP, you may always bring your computer into your local Best Buy™ store for warranty service and support.
Hope this helps you out.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

hi there hey try this ok you are going to have to remove the hard drive from the computer that u are using and put in a nother computer make sure that it is recognized as a slave ok than boot from it and back up the hard drive onto a disk ok best regards mike

Sometimes it is easier to install a new hard disk and reinstall Windows.
Then either connect the old hard drive as a slave drive (don't forget to set the jumper on this drive as a slave). The other way is to connect the old hard drive to a USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. this computer will see it as an external hard drive (provided the hard drive is still functioning).
Either way you can download and backup your files.
