Re: Y50-70 Windows regularly freezes when 1TB SSHD is spinning up

2015-05-08, 1:03 AM
Thank you for sharing! Just another piece of evidence that this WD SSHD is utter crap. And thanks for noting the 9.5mm Seagate SSHD fitting, because there are skeptics on this thread that think that drives of such thickness cannot be fitted.

I have a question for you: how is the performance of the Seagate compared to the WD? I am thinking about getting a WD Black2 SSD+HDD Dual drive, and I'm not sure if getting a SSHD is more cost effective. I plan to play Battlefield games, and I was wondering, since GTA V's maps take a long time to load just like BF maps, how is your loading time?

In addition, this WD SSHD freezes/stops spinning sporadically, leading to 0% disk usage when gaming and doing certain tasks (as measured by Task Manager). Does your Seagate ever do this? Does it ever freeze like the WD?

Thank you so much!

Hi,

 

Having only had the Y50 for 6 days before the HD went, I can't really compare the performance but what I can say is that after replacing there are no unexplainable pauses that there seemed to be before. The system feels more responsive. Regarding loading time, It does seem to have improved.

 

I didn't get to analyse the WD in task manager, so I can't do any comparison. If I suspected it would fail, I would have analysed it more. It's now been delegated to door stop duty :)

 

Two things I must say though:

 

1. I've had the 'replacement' drive in another laptop for a few months now, so I know it is a very capable drive, performance wise and bang for buck.

 

2. I'm completely anxious now to push the system just in case the HD wasn't the problem - to the point where I'll game GTA V 'just for a bit' to test, because I really can't afford to lose another HD. And it's not just the money, It's the time spent configuring a new system and loading up with all the stuff, making backups etc...

 

I know Lenovo make good systems, that's why I bought this - I have an awesome Z370 that's never let me down - And I can't bare to part with it - I just HOPE that the HD is the problem with this model.

 You can rest assured, the HDD is (beside the faulty hinges for some people) basically the only problem these laptops have. Otherwise great machines!

Ah so glad I found this thread and to know I'm not alone in this.  I bought my y70 near the end of last year and this problem has started driving me crazy.  I'm sure it's getting worse, freezing in the middle of doing things so often.  Anyone know what the outcome will be if they realise the drive is just inherently faulty?

After two months of use, yesterday I got notified by Action Centre that my hard drive failed and I needed to reboot to fix it. Check disk was performed on reboot. I did not know this was an issue but it seems that every one is in the same boat. I hope Lenovo finds a solution soon.

Hi Amy, I too have the same model SSHD and have this issue with my Y50.  I don't know if your offer is still open, but I would be willing to send in my hard drive.  Sorry for the stupid question, could you or someone else tell me the proper way to private message you?
Thanks for your help.

Hi, I'm having some Issues with my HDD, but when it freezes the OS and I tried to restart everything, a message saying checking media appears, and it doesn't detect the HDD on the BIOS.

This isn't the first time it has that issue, I sent this laptop 2 weeks ago for the same problem.
