@deek7

Thank you for posting on HP Forums,

The Riddle_Decipher is at your service.

 

I understand you need support, and I'll be glad to help you out, however, for an accurate solution I'll need more details:

 

What is the product number of your device? Use this link to find it: Click here

(Ensure you do not share any of your personal information such as serial, phone number, email ID, etc.)

  • Have you attempted any steps on your own before posting on the HP Forums?
  • When was the last time it worked without these issues? 
  • Are you getting the 3F0 error as well? just as the original poster did?
  • Did you run a hardware test on the computer using the F2 key during a restart?

Please reply with the details for further assistance.

Eager to help!

 

To thank me for my efforts to help you,

And Have a great day Ahead!

I did the f2 system diagnostics and all passed.  I then f10 it and f9 it and nothing happened.  Still got boot device not found.

Then step 3 test hard drive, and everything passed.

Then did step 4, restart drive and opened the back and took out drive and nothing seemed loose. Started laptop again still received error. 

Help!!

Deek7 did you get your issue resolved? I'm having the same issue with my HP Pavilion X360 M3-u00ldx.

I have a similar problem. My HD is dead. When replacing with a new one, I get the same error (HP Pavilion g7-2314er). But I didn't see a solution here. Can someone help?

These problems do not occur with the other devices only HP is with them and do not find solutions to them unfortunately.

Thank's.

To my great regret, I have to agree with you. I analyzed a lot of information on this error, but I did not find a solution for my case.
If there is no compromise here, then I will have to admit that there was a much better opinion about the HP products.
