Our HP Pavilion is unable to finish booting up; it displayed a message indicating a Hard Disk error (3F0) and suggested running a system diagnostic test (F2). When I ran the test, it came back with a 24 digit Failure Code. I "contacted" HP Support (virtual assistant), but the warranty has expired, and they referred me to the forum. So... after spending some time here, I can see that we most likely need to replace the hard drive and I understand it's a good idea to upgrade to SSD. How do I know which brand/ model SSD will work with my machine?
