Z575 Hard disk failure

My Lenovo Ideapad Z575 failed to load windows after it froze while I was using the internet 2 days ago. It wouldn't run the system repair so I had to reformat windows and reinstall it. Problem is, while installing on local drive C:/ Windows kept on saying that I should choose another drive because it may fail soon but I don't have other choices and installed it anyway. After windows 7 ran, it kept on telling me to back up my files because Windows detected a hard disk problem. (Disk Name: WDC WD5000BPVT-24HXZT1 ATA Device)? How do I repair this? 


Also I tried Smart Downloading V2.1, with Chrome, Mozilla, and IE8 (as administrator) but it doesn't work. The plug in installer cannot be found.

Re: Z575 Hard disk failure

hi sansheart.

as windows detected you are having hdd issue and only way is to fix it replacement. if you have external hdd box, backup/copy your datas and ship it back to service for replacement.

if you have valid warranty, warranty should cover it.
