I had a cracked screen on my HP DM4 series that was a few months old(maybe 6-ish months at the time?). I recently got it replaced about 2.5 weeks ago(at this point the computer is right around 1 year old). Everything worked fine, however 2 days ago my computer blue-screened and then crashed. When I started my computer back up again, most of the time it would say that there was no boot-disk available, and in the BIOS the "hard-disk test" would fail, indicating that there was no HDD(this would go away after a few minutes and I could start windows again, only to have it happen again not too long after). It used to crash every once in a while, varying from every few hours or so(I left it on sleep mode overnight once with no troubles), but now the past few times I've tried to start it up it has crashed halfway through startup. I am not quite sure what is wrong, so I'm coming here for help. Is the issue related to the screen(everything worked fine for ~2 weeks) or is it something else? I am willing to provide any information that I need to in order to help fix this problem, and attached is a picture taken of the blue-screen. The computer is an HP dm4t - 1200. If you need anything else, reply to this thread.

Thank you all in advance for your help.

Time to replace your hard drive, and see if that is the issue due to your failed hdd tests.
