Hard Disk Error 3F2

HP Recommended
HP Omen 15-DC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently took apart this entire machine to replace both the keyboard and the display. There were a few hiccups, but I eventually got the thing to turn on. It uh, it spat a hard drive 3F2 error at me. I double checked to make sure I put the cable in correctly, and it was. I was told to run some tests through diagnostics/F2, so I did. I ran all component tests and the quick/extensive tests. Absolutely nothing came back as an error nor did it even spit an error message me. Diagnostics said everything worked properly. The machine still insists there's a problem, so for the time being, I have booted it using F9. I can access everything that exists on my solid state, however, everything from my hard drive is no longer accessible. Is there anything else it could be besides the hard drive? What is in the 3F2 position on this version of my laptop?

Update from this evening:

I boot it up, get the error, and f9 into things like usual.

This time though, the hard drive showed up.

I can use things from it too.

I have a hunch it's from a partially destroyed cable that connects the hard drive, so I ordered a replacement.

I'm not going to use anything from it though until the new cable comes in.


In other news, my fans are absurdly loud in cooling mode, moreso than usual.

I switched to default settings for the time being and that seems to have worked.

I might have to reapply more thermal paste, as I might have not done enough (only covered the necessary chips and not a small bit around it)
