Lenovo U410 - 32GB SSD Failed

2014-04-17, 1:24 AM

I have been running my Lenovo U410 great for a few months, but recently the 32GB SSD gave out. It isn't detected anymore and it gives me the Intel Rapid Start Technology is disabled error everytime Windows is booted. My warranty only has a few months left, but I'm in no shape to be laptopless. Also, replacing the 32GB SSD by myself voids warranty as there are Lenovo stickers on the screws to open up the back panel. I don't have many options, any suggestions what I could do? Also, is there any way to make my U410 run off completely the HDD so I can use "Sleep" when I close the lid. If it's running on "Sleep", the laptop goes to a black screen which is caused by my SSD problem. This is a VERY big problem with U310/U410 owners, but there hasn't be a consensus on a solution.

hi Telstra,

 

Thanks for Posting!

 

I believe the SSD is only mounted for Caching.

    The system could technically run without it.

 

If you are to replace the SSD

           Open Control Panel and Uninstall the Intel Rapid Start and the Expresscache Software.

                   then Replace your SSD.

               Once Installed run the Install the Espress cache software from Lenovo Website.

It should work.

 

The Warranty is valid even if you replace a part.

              Only damages during the process of replacing are not.

 

You can refer to the system's Maintenance Manual for Disassembly.

 

Regards

Solid Cruver

Thank you for your response.

 

The reason I say it voids warranty because on the screws to take the back panel off has Lenovo stickers. I assume that this is to prevent people to open it up.
