If not, to check the drive you have to follow these steps: 1) Press Esc key repeatedly, several times a second, while rebooting the laptop. Do NOT hold the key down, just press it over and over. 2) Eventually, you will see an HP Startup Menu 3) Press the Function key for testing the hard drive (usually F2) and let it run.

I had first of all this failure Message 3FO or boot device not found. And somehow sometimes after a lot of tries Windows was starting sooo slowly that i was falling asleep. And then Windows was going for restarting itself in 10 min. Red A lot for the case and in the end i went to the shop and bought myself a SSD hard drive, because the old one was HDD. But now it sends me directly to this ‘Boot device not found’ message. I tried with f10 boot options but it brings me again to the main issue! So.. do you thing there is solution?
