    According to MS disk integrity may be the issue. This page suggests running chkdsk. Depending on the results a new hard disk drive (HDD) may be in your future.

    There are two "form factors" (physical size) of hard drives for PCs, 3.5 and 2.5. The HP link doesn't specifically state the form factor but it shows a picture of a 3.5" drive. Googling that model HP suggests this is correct. The newegg link you gave is for the 3.5, so yes, that would work. A 2.5" drive (the size used by laptops) would also fit in the space and use the same connections. You could go for more or less storage depending on your needs and budget.

    If you're happy with that amount of storage and speed, I'd go for one of the new drives at your newegg link, maybe Western Digital for about $40.

    The only reason to get a 2.5" drive would be to switch to a solid-state drive (SSD) which would be much faster, but cost a lot more.

    You don't know any computer geeks that will work on it for free?

    How old is that HP? Drives typically last more than 5 years.

    "cost a lot more" is definitely NOT on the shopping list.

    Release date for this model was 2013.

    Honestly...I'm not completely convinced the hard drive IS going out. But I'm the opposite of knowing what I'm doing.

    Spinrite software would probably help your drive and fix the issues with it. It should at least get you another year or more out of it.
