HP Pavilion G6 OS/Software :: Hard Disk 303 And 305 Errors
Oct 2, 2014
Recently I began having problems upon starting up my HP Pavilion g6 series laptop. I would get a disc error that would require me to restart with "control, alt, delete." It has now gone to giving me Hard Disk errors 303 and 305. I've been looking around on these forums and it appears that I'm looking at a harddrive getting ready to fail.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium with an Intel i7-2620M CPU @ 2.70GHz with 6GB of RAM and it's a 64 bit operating system.
Am I correct in assuming that the hard drive is getting ready to fail? If so, how do I replace it and what do I replace it with?
I purchased a new Pavilion 15-p080ca Windows 8 laptop from tigerdirect.ca and received it a couple of days ago.
The computer had randomly rebooted during working on it, I remember having read an IO error message in a windows popup. Since then, it continuously reboot, tries to load windows, fails and reboot until automatic repair kicks in.
Bios system log has many warnings/error: 03F0, 03F1, 0021. I got about 3 times a hard disk not found error on POST.
I am unable to repair the installation whether from the recovery partition or from recovery discs, I get "The drive is locked error" or "Automatic repair could not repair your pc".
Also recovery manager can't find the recovery partition. On command prompt, diskpart does not list disk; "There are no fixed disk to show".
However, Ubuntu live cd and Mini xp are able to see every partitions, show files and read them, a fast HDtune read test shows no disk error.
The computer is able to read from hard drive since I am able to get on recovery and windows tries to load until I get the "Your pc ran into a problem that it couldn't handle and it needs to restart"
HP PC Hardware Diagnostics SMART test passed, Short DST returns Warning. HP diagnostic smart test returned "no hard disk installed" message one time.
Anything Windows 8 based, whether recovery disk, original media are not able to see hard drive.
I tried booting recovery disk, recovery partition with every combination of Legacy support and Secure boot to recover the partitions without success since the hard drive is not detected (from diskpart list disk command). From the recovery dvds I get a 0xefffff08 error. I also tried to remove the recovery partition thinking it could want to recover from it to get things faster.
I have an HP Pavillion dm4. My hard drive died so I installed a new hard drive. The original OS installed on the computer was Windows 7. I did not get a Windows 7 disk with the computer. If I order the Windows 7 recovery disk from HP, will it install Windows 7 on my new hard drive? I have the COA info.
My HP Pavilion G6 laptop fails to load Windows. The HP UEFI diagnostics for hard disk failed the Short DST test with failure code GU754F-6PK7GW-MFPWXG-60TQ03. Does this mean I have to replace my hard drive? My laptop's product ID is E3D62EA#ABU and I have Win8.1 64-BIT installed on it.
My hp pavilion g7 froze yesterday after saying it couldn't connect to internet. I have tried to reboot. The hp logo comes on and then dot circle for about three min. Then the screen goes blank, but it is still on, you can see bluish light on screen. Any way I hit escape during on and got the screen with options. I ran the run in test and start up test. Both came back with hard disk short DST. Failure. The smart check passed anyway the failure I'd is 64x950-6h9783-mfpx0k-60uc03.
I have been given the task of restoring my brother's laptop after his hard disk gave the click of death, only 6 months outside the warranty. I have replaced the hard disk. Fortunately all his documents and photos have been copied to an external drive, but unfortunately he has no system image or restore disk or Windows 8 intallation disk.
Is there anywhere on the net where I can get an ISO image to burn a Windows 8 insallation disk or can HP supply a restore disk preferably to restore the laptop back to factory settings.
My laptop HP Pavilion dv6-6c35dx fails to load Windows. I ran diagnostics and got a quick (303) error. The HP UEFI diagnostics for hard disk failed the Short DST test with failure code MBX47F 0006QU PXGK01 60QT03. Does this mean I have to replace my hard drive? My laptop's product ID is A6Y53UAR#ABA and I have Win7 -64 installed on it.
my 4 month old MBP keeps kicking out errors saying that my startup disk is almost full even though I have something like 40GB free. Windows partition works perfectly fine in boot camp. I've run Disk Utility's verify disk and permissions options with no errors and I was able to repair disk permissions just fine. The bootup hardware diagnostic tool with the OS X disk runs fine too. Onyx runs its cleanup functions fine, but I still get the error every now and again.
Obviously I have performed a backup and will likely make a trip to the Apple Store but has anyone encountered something like this? All signs point to software issues, but I'm still a little worried.
I have a Pavilion dv7 1245dx with Windows Vista 64 Bit bought 2009 at Best Buy. It slid off the arm of the couch onto a carpeted floor while shut down. Next day started ok, got into yahoo, facebook, then kind of froze up. Eventually, would not do anything, manually shut it down, started it back up. Black screen, 'No Bootable Device-Insert Boot Disc And Press Any Key'. It will not accept recovery discs that I made after purchase. Start up test ok, memory test ok, hard disk failed 'Boot Drive Not Found'. Caps lock light is blinking. I saw something in a forum about resetting or reseating the hard drive but no explanantion how to do it.
My computer was working just fine last night, and then today everything was running slower and things started to freeze up sometimes. I inicially thought it was just Google Chrome as it seemed fine until opening that up, but then everything was slower, so I restarted the computer and ran the start up diagnostic and the hard disk short DST failed giving me the failure ID of 9U0K9R-66X77D-QFPK1G-60QL03. Does this mean my hard drive is failing and I need to replace it?My computer is a HP Pavilion dv6 7010US entertainment PC with product ID B5S11UA#ABA
I've got a random clicking sound coming from my HDD (XPS m1330, 200 GB 7200 RPM drive) - so far only when running a certain torrent. Turning the torrent off stops the clicking, etc.
I called Dell who told me to run HDD diagnostics which found no errors whatsoever. Also, my system isn't freezing/slow at all. I reflashed the bios with the most updated one (A15) at the tech's suggestion but it made no difference... I prefer A09 since the fan runs less so unless anyone can confirm the bios might make a difference I'll revert it...
I have a HP 15 Notebook PC with no dvd drive recently I was sent the system recovery cds from HP. I dont have an external dvd drive. What i do have is a Toshiba Satelight laptop with Widows 7 and a good dvd drive. Also I have a 500 GB external hard drive. I was thinking maybe I could copy the disks onto the external harddrive with the Toshiba dvd drive. Then attach the external hard drive to my HP 15 Notebook by usb port and install Hp recovey disks from the external hard drive.
I have an Inspiron 1525 with windows 7. I use system mechanic 11.7 for PC clean up. Every time I started the computer I was getting multiple hard drive errors and had to run deep clean followed by scan check. I thought I had a faulty hard drive so I bought a new one and completely reloaded my OS.

I have been trying to update all my drivers and programs in order to update my computer to Windows 8.1 64-bit. However, I have been unable to update HPSA and HPUC to the newer versions (184.108.40.206 and 2.2.6 respectively).
HPSA is giving the following problem. If I try to simple install the new version over the old version (normal update) the installer claims there has been an Error and simply stops. The system shows that the old version is still installed, but when I try to run the program I get a Error window saying the program cannot run. Obviously the installer does not set everything back properly when it stops the install.
If I try to uninstall the old version before installing the new version the uninstall stops with an error saying it cannot find the proper files for uninstall.
HPUC is giving the following problem. I try a simple install of the new version over the old version the installer starts and various windows show the installation going on, but then all installer windows disappear and no window appears showing the installation has completed (even after waiting 10 minutes). Windows Programs and Features says that the new version has been installed, but the program and its directory are nowhere to be found on the computer. HPUC has vanished.
In all cases I have set a recovery point before doing installations and reverting to this recovery point has set things back to normal. Do you have any fixes for my problem? I need to get this done before I Update Windows.
Installed 32 bit Windows 7 to replace XP. New problem after installation, text cursor does not always step one place to the right every key press but jumps back & inserts new text within previous text typed. Reduced the frequency of errors by installing free program "Touchfreeze", but it is still a problem. Keyboard is a standard PS/2 type. Suspect a keyboard driver problem (bug). Have latest driver installed for Pavilion dv8025EA.
Driver version: 6.17601.17514 Driver files: C:windowssystem32DRIVERSi8042prt.sys file version6.1.7600.16385 C:windowssystem32DRIVERSkbdclass.sys file version6.1.7601.17514 Microsoft Signed software.
Think I need an alternative keyboard driver to clear this bug?? It seems to be an old problem with Windows 7 going back to 2010, but I cannot seem to find a clear solution .....
I am so tired of receiving Low Disk Space on recovery (D). I have done everything it asked. Empty Recycle Bin which is EMPTY. I am not a computer wizard but it seems unfair that I have pay over $150.00 year to correct this problem once a year. I have checked a lot of places and it just keeps telling me the same thing. That doesn't work.
i have a inspiron e1705. i dont not have many big programs. some of them include Age of Empires III and an expansion pack, itunes, garmin software for my gps, java, office (excel, powerpoint and word), firefox and ie,
wd anywhere backup, avast! anti-virus, mp3 rocket, apple qucktime, spy-bot, etc.. i am pretty sure that these are all up-to-date. i have sp 2 installed... (is there a third one?).
i also have many pictures and videos (17.3 gb for pictures, 47.4 gb for music, and 8.6gb for videos). i do not have too many documents.
i have also just recently formatted my computer. any ideas as to why it is so full, and how i can create more room? do i just have to delete some things?
my laptop, hp pavillion g60-120us has been slowing down and crashing lately, so i ran hd tune to check it's temperature and found out it's running at around 62c with several programs running - firefox with multiple tabs, majic jack, hd tune, and the usual security-antiivirus and spyware.
when i first turn the laptop on, it starts at around 40c and quickly goes up to the 60's within 20-30 minutes.
when i run a scan of antivirus or ultimate defrag it tops out at around 70c.
the hd tuner hits critical hard disk temperature at 55c and pop ups a message every few seconds.
i've also run speedfan, and it tells me the same temperature.
is it normal for a laptop to run a temperature in the high 60's...should i put it on a block of dry ice, or move to the north pole?
