When I got my Y530, the first thing I did was replace the hard drive with a brand new 320GB 7200rpm WD Caviar Black. I reinstalled the OS (Vista Home Premium x86), and everything was fine. Until I put it to sleep.
It would not come out of sleep right. It would freeze at the desktop. When I restarted, it would just stay at the loading screen (green progress bar) forever and never go past that. The HDD light on the laptop was blinking rhythmically every second or so. I would have to hard restart the laptop, and once I did get into Windows. My bluetooth would not show up when I hit the FN+F5 hotkey. I would have to do a restart show it to show back up.
I figured it was the fact that I did not install the energy management driver/utility, but this is not the case. After getting every newest driver/utility for every device, I got the same results.
I have since reinstalled multiple OS's, including XP, Vista Home Premium x64, and Windows 7 beta x64. The same thing happens in EVERY operating system.
I thought maybe my hard drive was just flaky. Nope, not that either. It passes every diagnostic test I throw at it, and every HDD info tool shows no problems with it whatsoever.
So, I believe I've exhausted all possible things to try, so I dunno what the deal is. Any help guys??
