Hardware Scan Warning - what do the codes mean?

I ran a Hardware Scan on my laptop (G500S) and a couple of warnings came up. It didn't give me any detail on what the warnings were, just result codes. How do I find out what the codes mean?

 

The two codes I got were:

  • SMART Short Self Test - Warning - Result code WHD00V000-HK9Z1J
  • Local connection test - Warning - Result code WWF00F000-HK9Z1J

Is there a lookup table somewhere so I can find out what these warnings are?

Re: Hardware Scan Warning - what do the codes mean?

hi nmgtn,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

The image below is the breakdown on how the LSC error codes mean.

  - Link to picture

 

The SMART Self-Test Unit means that the diagnostic utility failed to read some certain sectors on the drive and predicted an imminent HDD failure.

 

As for the Local Connection Test - Warning error, this article states that:

 

These warnings appear due to the state of the network your PC is connected to and not the state of the wireless LAN hardware in the PC.  For example, the user may not be connected to a wireless LAN network or the wireless LAN network may not have access to the internet.

 

These warning messages do not indicate a hardware issue.  No hardware should be replaced as a result of these warnings.

 

I recommend you contact lenovo support and report your findings as you likely need to send the unit for service.

Regards

I have the same issue I bought ideapad 320 5 days a go and from the first start the noticable sound of the HDD  is there. I ran the diagnostic tool and the HDD fails the SMART TEST with warning W1TSK8ACR-MLT53B

Welcome to the Lenovo Community MHussient !

 

Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.  Since the laptop is brand new, I would return it to the place of purchase.  Hard drive noise and a failed Smart Test are good indicators that the hard drive is defective and will eventually fail.
