Everytime the thinkvantage toolbox runs a hardware check, it keeps failing the "targeted read test", and gives me error WHD20-RV7...i have no idea what this is, what it means, or how to fix it...
is it fixable? can i do it myself? how would i go about doing it? thanks

This means you've got bad sectors in your HDD. Try to run a checkdisk under windows with an attempt to recover bad sectors. Turn off your computer and retry to check with the Toolbox.

Just have an eye on your HDD an backup as often as possible. Try to restore the bad sectors with chwckdisk even if it takes a bit of time it could be worth it.
