Re: error code 303 in the start up test

Hi,

 

Hard disk 1 quick 303 means the Hard Drive has failed the short test.  This means that the Hard Drive is failing and will need to be replaced.  The first thing you should do now is backup all your personal files etc.

 

If your notebook is still under warranty, return it to HP to have the HDD replaced.  If it's not and you would like a guide on how to replace it yourself ( it's a suprisingly easy procedure ), let me know.

 

Regards,

Re: error code 303 in the start up test

Hi,

 

A Hard Disk 1 Full 305 error means the Hard Drive has failed the long test.  The first thing to do after receiving this error is to back up your personal files etc.

 

If the notebook is still under warranty, get this replaced by HP.  If it is not and you would like a guide on how to replace this yourself, please let me know.  Include the full Model No. or Part No. of your notebook.

 

Regards,

Re: error code 303 in the start up test

So how would someone backup all personal files ect when you cannot get past the blank screen????

Seems very odd an EXPERT would recomend this :womansurprised:
