I have the HP G61 632NR and have the same 3FO error. I've had my lap top for a year and a half. Seeing how common this is, its really ridiculous and definitely the last time I'll be buying an HP product, and i'll make sure to steer anyone i know away from getting any HP products, unless they do something about this...

Too many people have got the same problem. I suspect a windows (it could be also a driver update etc..) update. I have experienced when an update has been installed and after a reboot, the boot device error came up and the hard drive had to be reformatted before using again (worked but started failing). Something goes wrong when the operating system is using the hard drive (writing on the hdd).

Hey IT guy. I would like to try your suggestion on removing the hard drive then putting it back in place, however I'm not quite sure what 'part' I should be looking at to remove once I get the back off my laptop. I have a Compaq,
Notebook Model: Presario CQ56 Notebook PC
Product number: XU682UA#ABC
I see the 2 screws that you were mentioning for the HP laptops. So once I get the back off what exactly am I looking at? I too am getting the same error as all of the above!
