My laptop isn't too old and I don't understand why but my hard drive seems to be broken and its only two years old. A day ago I was just downloading a steam game and my chrome tabs became unresponsive and the download also paused just before finishing so I knew something was wrong. I tried to open task manager and close everything but it also became unresponsive, so there was only one thing left to do and that was just shutting my laptop off. I powered my laptop back on and to my surprise the 3f0 error came up. If anyone can help me with this I'd appreciate it and let me know what specific info of my gaming laptop you need and I'll post images

No nothing works at all I follow the videos online and do the steps and nothing works I even opened up my laptop and tried looking for the hard drive to see if it's damaged but I'm confused because I just see a small plastic part

How would you see if a hard drive is damaged?

Even if you could see internal damage visibly, there's not much you could actually do about it. The solution is likely to replace the hard drive and then restore any necessary data from your backups.
