Hard disk error (3fo)

Hi
First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).

Which will certainly show the Hard Disk as FAILED and need replacing.

 

You then need to install an OS etc.

If in doubt please ask.

Hi

Which suggests a TOTAL failure of the Hard Disk,   and/or  the connection from/to the Main Board has failed.

 

Initially I suggest you replace the Hard Drive as the Main Board does at least attempt to diagnose the faults.
