Hi

So you have a hard drive that functions correctly when connected to a PC, either by a USB caddy or ?????????

 

But gives a 3F0 when installed in a Laptop.   So back it up.

Do the F2 diagnostics and post any 24 character error code please.

 

Make a USB flash drive and run the laptop from that.

If in doubt please ask.

Which is what the F2 hardware diagnostics are for.

To either generate a 24 character failure code or to PASS.

 

Is this relevant

So look at Legacy/Secure BIOS settings.

 

Run a disk checker using the PC, like Gparted.

Therefore the Main Board may be the problem, with the connector / driver chipset.
