My nephew has a 2018 OMEN HP laptop and just recently received a hard drive error. I replaced his battery that was looked like it was about to explode after opening it up to see what was wrong.
He has one SSD and a small ssd card I have never used before. I think I need to change that card but am not 100% sure.
(The SMART hard disk check has detected an imminent failure. To ensure not data loss, please backup the content immediately and run the hard disk test in system diagnostics.) is the message i got and after doing a systems check the hard drive smart check failed.



Failure ID: 9TWDXX-8T7A6E-MFPUQK-60FX03

Does the SMART report show which SSD (make/model) the report is referring to?
(usually shown at top of report screen).
It says drive 1 which would be the ram size SSD

Samsung SM961 Polaris 128GB M.2-2280 PCI-e 3.0 x 4 NVMe Solid State Drive SSD

I purchased a

Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 250GB - M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology (MZ-V7S250B/AM)

to replace it and a case so i can clone the drive since i think he only has one slot.
