    3F0 Boot Device Not Found 5b9ed4b4-055c-4e40-89b3-fd5faf17cd99?upload=true.jpg

    Hello, on January 8th, 2020, my sister's HP computer stopped working, showing this boot error. Sometimes it would let her use her computer, before bluescreening and showing a flash of this screen. To fix it, we went to Best Buy's Geek Squad 3 times in a row, all of those attempts turning out to be futile. Is there anything we can do? Here are the things we've tried so far.


    1 We have tried pressing F2 and doing both the Hard Drive Test and Memory Test. We passed the Memory Test and the Hard Drive Test says "No hard drive found".


    2 We have tried doing Troubleshooting -> Advanced Options -> Reset PC -> Keep files, which has not worked.


    Of course, we probably need a new hard drive, but I want to see if there's another option we can try first. Also, is there any way we can ask for a refund? My sister only used it for one college semester, which seems to be too short of a time period.

    :)
