Lenovo G510 Optibay issue



I replace my G510 HDD to SSD and replace the optical drive to optibay with the original HDD (st1000lm024 hn-m101mbb).

The HDD in the optibay sometimes appearing in bios somtimes not.

If not the notebook starting normally if appearing I cannot boot. I hear the hdd need to starting but cannot start just click and click again. I use the latest bios.

I try the optibay with the HHD another machine it's working fine.

Any idea?


Thank in advance.

Re: Lenovo G510 Optibay issue

Hello Tonislow

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Sounds like there may be some sort of loose connection with the unit, check that all connections are solid and not loose inside the unit.


Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.

(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)
1. Turn the unit off
2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter
3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds
4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter
5. Turn the unit on as normal

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
