Targeted read test failed

2013-04-19, 2:39 AM

I purchased g585 laptop for my daughters birthday in Jan.  She has not downloaded many things.  She has the lenovo  solution center error message

Hardware system failure 

I ran another hardware scan and it says targeted read test failed, and SMART short-self test failed It gives result code 


We are also currently connected to the internet with a strong wi-fi connection and the computer will not load up the internet.  A week ago it did same thing but after rebooting started to work properly again.  This time we have rebooted several times and it still does not work.  


Please help.  This was to be my daughters computer as she heads off to college.
