hard drive 2 3f2 error hp 17-ar50wm

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

my hp 17 inch laptop was giving an HD error when I got it, but after you'd press f2 and hit the diagnostic screen it would boot right into windows. 


I swapped out hard drives with a brand new one, same issue. I watched YouTube which said to turn off secure boot under legacy in the bios. 

Honestly, aside from this error it runs fine and id loke to know how to fix or bypass it please.
