Boot Device not found Issue

HP Recommended
Pavillion 15-au181na

After taking kid and cleaning fan out comes up with,  Boot Device Not Found.     


Steps I've taken - 1. I've set BIOS default.  2. Run Hard Drive Check     


PROBLEM - It comes up with SMART check: Not Available   and  short DST : WARNING (1: WARNING)

Anyone have suggestions on what to do? The laptop was working correctly before I cleaned out the fan.

It would behave just like that if the hard drive cable were not plugged back in or damaged somehow when you took it apart to clean the fan.
