Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with this issue.

A few questions to help me understand the condition - when you had the HP was Windows 10 on the machine and working?

Did the PC technicians tell you how the hard drive is malfunctioning?

I can also help you move the data but would like to know about the malfunctioning drive.

**you do not have to pay for another windows 10 if you have the license key or any license information.

DO you have that?
