    Hi everyone,

    Has anybody experienced this? On boot-up, I get the error 3F0. A hard drive test passes, and I've tried other HD's. I have tried changing the BIOS to Legacy, but it will not boot from a memory stick which I've made bootable, nor will it boot from the dvd drive. I can hear the dvd spinning, and can hear it trying to read it, but I get a flashing cursor on a black screen. I've come to the conclusion that it's the motherboard (DA0U93MB6D2 REV D PN 732080-001 ). Any suggestions? Thank you in advance

    Thank you Dave. I have gone through this procedure, and it does appear to be the motherboard. I guess I'll have to start shopping around. This brings me to my next question. I know the motherboard model is DA0U93MB6D2 REV D, but there are also stickers all over the place. One says MPN 732080-001, and another says MPN 790630-501. Any idea if these are referring to the motherboard?

    The first is the HP part number for the screen. The second is the HP part number for the motherboard assembly.

    Thanks again Dave, this information kind of changes my search pattern.
