Black / Blank / BSOD / Blue Screen on HP Laptop

I’ve been seeing a couple of modern HP laptops that exhibit the same symptoms resulting from a failed hard disk drive. The computer either boots to a blank/black screen and then restarts itself in an endless loop, or, in the case of the one in this video where I had ‘auto restart on error’ disabled, you get a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) upon boot-up. The option to repair Windows behaves the same way.

Fortunately, HP has a built-in hard drive diagnostic utility that any modern HP laptop owner can use, regardless of experience – IF ONLY THEY KNEW IT WAS THERE!

If you own a modern HP laptop, or you’re a computer technician, watch this video and change hours of diagnostic time into just two minutes!

Messages on technician forums I visit are discussing this same problem, so it seems to be something unique to HP and the hard disk drives they use. I’m sure I’ll be seeing another again soon.
