Thinkpad Edge E530 Targeted Read Test Failed



For some time now I receive a failure message from the hardwarescan. The resultcode is: WHD01V002-RK7BRK. The targeted read test failed, all the other tests passed okay. Can anyone tell me what this fault code means and what I could or should do? Is this a serious problem? Actually I don't have any problems with the laptop.


Although I'd like to mention that ThinkVantage System Update doesn't succeed. I get the message 'fault during gathering user information' (translated from Dutch language) and then it stops.


In another thread on this forum I read about a Hard Disk quick test utility, but it is mentioned for Thinkpad Edge e420. 


Lenovo Hard Drive Quick Test for Windows 7 (64-bit)


Is this test laptop specific - for e420 and not for e530? Is it advisable to run this test or would this not work on my laptop? (My laptop runs Windows 7 64-bit)


I would really appreciate your reply and / or assistance. Thanks a lot in advance!
