Always Error 3f0

Could be a flaky connector maybe?

 

Also the Dv6 has a tendency to get hot sometimes, especially if it gets clogged with dust or is used on a soft surface that blocks the air circulation. Have you noticed any connection to the temperature? Would the PC boot if you let it cool without changing the disk? If so, you could search for Dv6 overheating or Dv6 loud fan noise to get hints what to do.

 

You can see some internal temperatures e.g. with the free Speccy utility (www.ccleaner.com)

I would not be the first to start dismantling the heat pipe setup as the first measure.

 

I would just use compressed air to try and get the dust out being careful not to damage the microphone and the loudspeakers with the pressure. Also some care is needed with the blower as it could wind up to excessively high speeds unless you restrict it with your finger while you blow. A soft brush can be useful in loosening the dirt in those places where you can reach with it.
