Lenovo G50-70 HW scan failed

2015-12-07, 11:26 AM


I have problem with my 3 month old Lenovo G50-70.

It freezes very often. I ran HW Scan on Lenovo Solution Centre and it found failure on Motherboard PCI/PCI-e Test and PCI express status test and failure on storage devices (Targeted Read Test, SMART Short Self Test, SMART Drive Self Test)

I reinstalled windows 10 and it is still the same.

Does anybody know, what it can mean?

Many thanks

hi Lucie333,


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

A similar issue was discussed in this thread and it's possible that the S.M.A.R.T. errors that you're also getting means that the diagnostic utility failed to read some certain sectors on the drive and predicted an imminent HDD failure (this may explain the freezing issues that you're getting).


You can try and verify errors found on the drive by running another HDD utility  (e,g., HDTune).

If verified then I'm afraid you will need to contact the lenovo helpdesk (for service) or you can DIY and replace the drive.



Let me know how it goes.
