Lenovo g505s hard disk not detected

Hi, my Lenovo g505s is not detecting it's own hard drive. I have already tried reseating the hard drive and that did not seem to work. Is there something else I can try?

Re: Lenovo g505s hard disk not detected

Hi NeddyNelson , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

You can try to reset the BIOS default and check if BIOS will detect the harddrive. 

It may be the the harddrive itself is bad , so if you have another harddrive to test it with just to islate if BIOS would detect another harddrive. 

 

Hope you manage to abck up your data , you may slave the harddrive in an enclosure and test it on another pc to diagnose its integrity . 

 

reference for review

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

Regards

Hi NeddyNelson , 

 

If BIOS rset fails , proceed with the above steps. 

Again it may be a bad drive already or bad contact between the motherboard .

 

Just to set your expectation , if you need toolsand skills to reseat it or have it slaved with a harddrive enclosure then best to have it checked with the nearest service center and if your warranty is still up , you can give tech support a call to avail of the service .

 

Highlighted above are links for review.

 

Update us how things go.

 

Regards
