SOURCE: a disk read error occurred press
The hard disk drive has failed and needs replacement. If this system is under warranty, contact HP
If not, then you can buy a replacement HDD from retailers like NewEgg.COM
I checked the HP spare parts page, their prices are quite high. Here is an example of a good value:

As the error message states you need to replace the hard drive as the hard drive is most likely dead ie not working / broken.

I had the same result with the "Hard disk self-test, the test status is "#10008 Replace Hard disk" on a HP Pavilion Notebook six months old.
The drive may or not be dead. I purchased the Vantec SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter. I was able to power up the hard drive using another computer & get all the data that would not load on my Notebook. A real life saver as I had 1000's of family photos.
I hope this helps anyone hoping to recover data they thought was lost. Also without having to send to a data recovery site. They quoted me $1500 to $2000. The adapter cost me $23 from Newegg.

Only Hp knows what that means in their diags. Get it shipped back and take it to a Locally owned PC shop and have them take a look at it. It is possible that you have just enough file fragmentation and file structure corruption that it is fail diags. Why did you take it in to be looked at anyways?

Pretty straight up, message indicates a failure of the hard drive and time to get a new hard drive.
