T500 freeze and hdd lamp is on

I have a problem with my new T500. When I read/write something from/to the hdd, the lamp which indicates writing/reading to the hdd is always on and the system is frozen.

In the event viewer I have thousends of the following errors:

Der Treiber hat einen Controllerfehler auf \Device\Ide\IdePort0 gefunden.

( that means: The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort0)

The source is atapi.

 

Where is the problem? This is a new notebook!

 

 I have a 2055-WL6 with Windows 7 64bit.

Re: T500 freeze and hdd lamp is on

If you were using the Lenovo preload, I would say update the IMSM driver as I have seen this

issue in the past, but since you state the machine has Win 7, the driver installed is provided by

Microsoft.

 

The machine is not at fault.

Re: T500 freeze and hdd lamp is on

I checked the hdd with the bios program and the result is: read verification failed.

So this is a hardware error.

I will get a new hdd and hope that it works fine afterwards.
