Re: lenovo ideapad 300 80q7 hard drive failure again

Hi me2a0




Would you recall the harddrive brands that was replaced for you on previous service as with the current. 

Based on the history either something triggering it internally or just a bad stock.


You can try calling technical support to check your option but with warranty expired for several months, I am not optimistic.  


Moving forward, I think you already know how this case would proceed as another drive replacement but try considering a different harddrive manufacturer this time.


You can try to run hardware diagnostics to confirm probable harddrive failure specially if BIOS would not even detect the drive.
