Hello,
I have a HP Envy 4-1017nr laptop. Since the last week, anytime I start my laptop, a message pops up on the screen telling me to backup my data as my laptop can have a hard drive failure. It told me to run some system diagnostic test, which I did and the result of the test was a failure. Then I pressed the "Enter" key, and the laptop booted to Windows as it normally does. I am having no other problems with this laptop apart from everytime I turn on the laptop, that message pops up and when I want to shut down my laptop, it does not completely shut down unless I manually shut it down by pressing the power button.
Can anyone please help me with this problem? Does this mean that I will have to replace the hard drive on this laptop?

The hard drive has a problem but you don't see it yet. 
Unfortunately, I cannot tell how bad the failure is. It might work like that for a long time or fail completely without any warning any time.
If you want to use it as is, make sure all your personal data is backed up. 
If your laptop is still under warranty you should send it to HP for the hard drive replacement. Do not attempt fixing it yourself. This will void your warranty.
Here's HP serivce manual for your laptop. Hard drive removal shown on the page 38. It's not easy because the hard drive mounted inside the laptop case.
