Thinkpad Edge e420 - Targeted read test and smart short self test failed

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

Recently my hardware scans shows two failed test.

1. Targeted Read test

2. Smart short self test.

Please any one help regarding this.

 

I have read the another post with same issue, the download links are not working, so i cannot test with those utility.

I have run the lenovo diagonistics utility, it also gave me the same results.

 

Please guide me to fix this or I wanna replace the HDD.

 

Thanks,

sakkthi

Hi I have the same problem, and downloaded utilities, both hang on the these two tests.

 

Should I contact Lenovo for replacement hard drive?
