Test the hard drive then the memory modules, post back the results.

Re: recovery error code: 0xe0ef0003

I think you have a bad hard drive, it needs to be replaced.

 

Did you make the HP recovery discs when you got the PC?

 

If not you will need to order a set, then replace the hard drive and use the recovery set to install the Operating System.

 

You can order recovery media here if you do not have them

If you have important data on the old hard drive I can show you how to save it once the new hard drive is installed and recovery has been performed, do not throw away the old hard drive

Re: recovery error code: 0xe0ef0003

It could be other hardware causing the shut down during the test, unfortunately there is no good way to figure out what it is, you may have to send it in for repairs or try another hard drive to see if that cures the problem.

Re: recovery error code: 0xe0ef0003

i just bought a new hardrive, a 500gb western digital scorpio blue, after my original hard dive failure, and i did create recovery discs but the recovery gets up to 98-99% then gives me the recovery error. And the the techs that diagnosed my problem put in their hard disk and it worked fine.
