I bought my y510p in January 2014 and now the HDD is failing - loads of bad sectors, BSOD, cant make a back up, fails seatools tests etc. I think its going to die but I would like to squeeze all the data I can out of it before it goes.
One thing I want to try is any repair tools that the manufacturer of the drive offers, BUT I can't for the life of me find out who made the thing - does anyone know, or know where I will find the information. In the "device manager" the disk is called: "ST1000LM014-1EJ164" and the manufacturer is listed as "(standard disk drives)"

It is a Seagate.
Your best bet is to backup your loved data and get a new HDD.
Otherwise, if you squeeze the orange to much, you will have orange pulp HDD.
