Pavilion g7: disc error hard disk 1 (3F1) pavilion g7

I have a hard drive error, and he says to run the system diagnostics hard drive test. The area code is disc 1 (3F1)

It seems that the hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced. If you are still in warranty HP will send a replacement. If this is not the case, a laptop SATA hard detail can be used. Just be sure to get a quality at least equal the original in order to use recovery disks. It may be big, but not small ability more. For example if you have a 500 GB hard drive you can use a 750 GB hard drive, but not a 320 GB hard drive.

  • Install upgrade-drive HARD T42 recovery discs but hard disk starts only in routine of Rescue and Recovery.

    I am doing a new installation in what follows rather than cloning because the system has not been reinstalled for 4 years.  A CD drive external usb (internal drive deleted), I installed the recovery disks on a 160 GB Samsung HM160HC PATA drive without problem.  Then you click on the button restart.  My T42 started immediately in the opening page of the routine of Rescue and Recovery.  On restart again once I use F12 to get the list of readers with the Samsung HDD.  This did not help.  Repeated many times start.  The computer could not watch any other player because the Samsung is the only one connected.  I'm tempted to download the update of the BIOS available from Lenovo that connected with the old 30 GB disk, while that my program of on-board controller is worm 3.04 and supposed to be suitable for the 160 GB drive upgrade.  If anyone has a suggestion please let me know.

  • G8 Pavilion laptop hardware error - new hard disk?

    Hello, I spoke with a representative from HP and I wanted a second opinion. Here are the facts:

    Possible virus causing the model to be very slow and have errors at the start up.

    Problems of gel even in "safe mode".

    Decided to do a "System Restore" using F8. Follow-up of the steps, took 20 + minutes, FINISHED.

    A screen says that I can, "1. update of security for HP and microsoft;   2 re - install any other software;    3. install all the backed up files. I selected 'NEXT' at the bottom of the screen, then, "OPERATING SYSTEM not FOUND '. Now I can't other than 'F' screens anyhere

    I call HP. A rep tells me to use F2, test drive. On a quick scan, 1 hard disk failure (SMART disc is OK). The full scan, 1 hard disk failure (SMART disc is OK).  The representative asked me a long code determine the failures, and there is NOT.  I go out of the main system diagnostics page and there are two failure codes: 303 (quick scan) and 305 (full scan). The rep wants codes any longer, but there is not.

    My question: do I need a new hard drive, or I can just recovery disks?

    Thanks for any help you can provide!   -Sarah


    Longer code (up to 24 characters) means that the HARD disk is dead. 305 error would indicate that your hard drive is defective and must be replaced. Please backup your files/data as soon as possible. Is your machine still under warranty? In the affirmative, please call HP for a replacement.

    Update: Sorry, I'm a little slow - 3rd opinion then.

    Kind regards.

  • HP Pavilion dv6 - 3320st - Smart hard disk error - replacement?


    My laptop is hp pavilion dv6-3320 st and I get smart disk error. I understand that my hard drive is a failure and I need to replace it.

    Unfortunately, I do not know how to find a compatible hard drive for my computer.

    Here's my computer;

    and the hard drive I think to replace;

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Kind regards

    Your laptop has a regular 2.5 "SATA hard drive installed.

    Any 2.5 "SATA hard drive should work just fine.

    The hard drive that you have access to will work fine.

    If you do not use a lot of space on the hard disk, I recommend to install an SSD. It is much faster but more expensive.

  • Laptop 17 inch Pavilion Pc.: Smart hard disk error

    Respected by all those that I got a "SMART disk error" error smart disk check has detected an imminent failure. To ensure no data loss Please save the content immediately and run the system diagnostics hard drive test. Hard drive 301.
    Now what should I do?
    My model number is 17-f114dx
    Please advice me a good way to solve this problem.


    Your laptop is listed as coming with a 750 GB hard drive - the drive on the following link is an example that would be perfect for your laptop.

    750 GB hard drive.

    The procedure to replace the hard drive begins on Page 104 of your maintenance & Service Guide.

    Once this is done, simply use your recovery DVD to reinstall the original operating system (Windows 8.1) on the new drive and then upgrade to Windows 10 once again.

    A better option, as long as the previous installation of Windows 10 had activated Ok after the original 8.1 upgrade, would be to simply perform a new installation of Windows 10 as detailed in the guide on the following link.  Note: On the activation screen, select "I don't have a product key" - Windows will activate automatically once installation is complete.

  • HARD disk error 03F1

    I have a laptop HP pavilion dv6 under Win 7 OS. Whenever I STOP and turn on again, it starts normally. But whenever I RESTART, I get an error of hard disk with error code (03F1). I ran the diagnostic disk HARD BIOS test several times, but there is no error. Restore windows with 'Out of Box' option of HP recovery disks, but no change. I have delete all partitions, used a software for HDD Low Format, but the conditions were the same. I made a disc of HP recovery factory reset, but nothing has changed.

    What is the best solution, replace my Toshiba 500 GB HARD disk with a new one or to ignore the error? It's about 1 month I have this problem. There is no suspended, frost-free and so on. It works well, but who knows, I am a software programmer and I can't trust my mobile. I'm worried about an accident that could be a disaster.

    Thank you

    Thank you very much!

    I replaced my HARD drive and now everything is OK.

    Hi there @Brugalgirl

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! It's a good place to find the help you need, other users, the HP experts and other members of the support staff. I understand that your computer does not start successfully, and you found a Smart Drive 301 error code. I'm happy to help you with this.

    I checked the ID of the failure, you've posted and verifies that the error. Unfortunately, this means that your hard drive needs to be replaced.  In view of the fact that the system does not boot, it is likely that the hard drive is completely unreadable, but depending on what you have on this subject, it may be worth your while to check with a local computer service shop and see if they can help to recover data from your hard drive.

    If your system is relatively new and may be covered by the warranty, or if you wish to fix with HP for the guarantee system, you can call in hotline to make these arrangements. In this case, please use the following and create a folder for your question and contact HP. If you do not live in the United States / Canada, please click on the link below to get contact information for your region.

    Otherwise you can look at a replacement hard drive yourself. If you have a set of recovery media, then you already have a factory image HP, which allows you to put in place a new hard drive with your original operating system. If is no longer, you have a set or did not have a set of recovery media, so you can see if there are not yet available for your model.
