The code is pretty much useless, but after the scan completes, you have the option to "View Log", which will display the results in plain English.
If you open the Lenovo Solutions Center, click on Hardware Scan, you will be presented the option to "See Last Results"
If you click on that option, you can then click on the 3.5" diskette icon above the "Final Result Code" to save the log to a file that you can then attach to a reply if desired.

Locate c\programdata\lenovo\ldiag\ldiag.log and ldiag_errors.log.
Just .zip the whole folder and attach it in post reply.
The Final results code is useless.
I do have a screen shot of how to read each test, posted on Lenovo.com x years ago.
After PC-Doctor replaced via LSC overnight.
I cant post it. removed. It was a Lenovo item then.
Hint the -xxxx after code is a hash of your serial number, disregard. Used for "ship your info to Lenovo" if you opt in on LSC.

Your hard drive is reporting bad sectors, which means that your hard drive is failing and needs to be replaced, but before doing anything, including continuing to use your laptop, you should first backup all your important data ASAP
Note: Bad sectors are basically small areas of the hard drive that are damaged, and thus data cannot be read from, or written to properly in those area. There are utilities that can map around those areas, such as Windows Check Disk, utility, and the drive manufacturer's SeaTools utility, but the drive is failing, and will continue to have more bad sectors over time until it ultimately fails.
If your G50-45 is still under warranty you should open a warranty support ticket with Lenovo, but if out of warranty, any good computer repair shop should be able to replace the hard drive for you, and depending on the state of the drive, do so by creating an image of your current drive, and then laying that image down on the new drive.
You could replace the drive yourself, but it is somewhat of a daunting task to get everything working again if you have never done so before yourself.
The good from the bad in all of this, is that your old Seagate drive was a rather slow 5400rpm drive, and you can replace it with either a faster 7500rpm, or if in the budget, an extremely fast solid state drive (SSD) drive, that latter of which would increase the laptops performance dramatically.
Installed hard drive: Seagate Samsung Spinpoint M8 ST1000LM024
