Boot Failure
I don't know anything about computers. I'm a complete idiot when it comes to technology, and I feel like an idiot posting this thread. But I'm really lost here, so.....

Lately when I turn my computer on, I get a 'Boot Failure' error. I googled it, and from what I read it could be the hard drive is going out, or other things like corrupted system files. The error has been happening more and more. Even when I manage to start it, the screen will turn grey and it'll shut off by itself sometimes.

I have no idea what I'm doing. Should I do a full system recovery? That will reset it to its original settings and fix corrupted files, right? How do I replace the hard drive? Do I need a recovery disk to reinstall the operating system when I replace the hard drive?

I have HP Pavilion. Here's the support page for it:

The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
