Hi,

 

The 305 error would indicate that your Hard Drive is failing and will need to be replaced.

 

If your notebook is still under warranty, contact HP and arrange to have the drive replaced - you can check your warranty status Here.

 

If you live in the US, contact HP Here.

 

If you are in another part of the world, start Here.

 

If you are out of warranty and would like a guide on replacing the Hard Drive yourself, please let me know.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

Your current notebook ( dm1 ) uses DDR3 which is not backward compatible with the DDR2 in your dv6700 series.

 

If you wish to try and use the HDD from your 6700, you would need to use your Recovery discs to reinstall Windows 7 on the drive once you've installed it - the original Vista installation will not work if you simply swap the drive in.  Also, there can be problems when using Recovery Discs if the drive you install is smaller in capacity than the original HDD.

 

Regards,

It would be good if the HP expert would give a way to get back the lost data from the disk that fails.

 

I had the same problem on my HP CQ42 "Hard Disk Full (305)".

 

BUT I FOUND OUT THAT THE HARDDISK WAS STILL ALRIGHT ANYWAY.

IT WAS JUST THE WINDOWS SYSTEM THAT HAD GONE COMPLETELY CORRUPTED

 

This is how I found this out, and how I got my harddisk and system running again as before:

 

- I removed the HD from the HP CQ42 laptop

- I placed it in an HD enclosure for 2.5 size HD's

- I connected the HD enclosure by USB cable to my 2nd HP laptop

 

and see, all files on the HD appeared on the screen of my 2nd HP laptop,

and could be freely copied and pasted.

 

So

- I removed the HD from the HD enclosure and placed this HD back in its CQ42 laptop

- I started up the CQ42 with the original "Windows 7 basic" DVD

- I newly installed the Windows 7 basic system on "the partition of the old one that failed"

(I DIDNOT FORMAT the partition, ... thus when the new system is installed it puts the corrupted Windows7 with all its files in a file called "old.windows7, so you can use all your old files again in your newly installed Windows7 "

 

(BE SURE YOU INSTALL THE NEW WINDOWS 7 ON THE PARTITION OF THE OLD ONE, AND NOT IN YOUR BACKUP PARTITION)

 

After that the CQ42 laptop ran smoothjly as ever before, with the new system.

 

In any case, I would recommend to someone who has important files on his laptop HD,

- to keep the "failed HP laptop HD"  in the HD enclosure where it functions normally and well, and use it for back-ups

- to buy a new HD for the laptop and install Windows on that one

 

Hope this will be a relief to any desperate "Hard Disk 1 Full (305)" laptop owners
