a week ago i bought L450 with samsung 256 ssd, fullhd ips antiglare, 8gigs memory, 3g.
I have updated all drivers with lenovo system update(using windows 8.1) i have also updated bios, and yesterday my system started to become unresponsive, i have started taskmanager that said my hdd is under 100 percent of active state, but read write speed was 0 kbs, so i did a hard reboot (because win**bleep** have sometimes bad moments), then my PC does not booted. i have started to find solution, on lenovo website i found that i need to download and execute some *.bat file to udpate SSD firmware to be compatible with new bios (this is **bleep** logic because it worked for few days with udpated bios), also how to do that if PC does not boot into OS how to execute this bat file if most new notebooks have only 1 sata port...
So i have tried to remove ssd and insert it back, not helped, i have putted it into my old B590, it also not recognize, i have putted my B590 hdd to L450 it worked. So there is no problem with sata connection. I have tried to falsh back oldes bios i have found on support site, this also not worked. I have no option in bios to change AHCI/Raid/Compatibility mode to test it out, but i tested it under B590, also without success. I have tried to keep disc without power (detatched) for one hour, not helped. i have tried without power and battery long press powerbutton to try consume some persisting energy inside if any. Also does not helped. I have booted up ubuntu from flash drive to check if it recognizes, but with no luck.
As developer i have some projects that have bigger value, i have believed in quality based samsung ssd and everything that tells that the ssd disc are more reliable and also in Lenovos Mil-Spec, i have putted all my projects to it to be on possible safes place, and removed them from my old PC... and now everything is gone...
So i now:
1. Is there any DYI solution?
2. If no will lenovo accept waranty if i detatched the hdd and changed the dics to test this out?
3. If yes, can lenovo save my data?
4. If no can I ask for some compensation of my data loss?
This notebook costed me 975 euros, this money in slovakia is more than average wage (minimal is 380, average is 500-800)
My B590 for (480euros) survied nearly anything (fall from 2 meters to hard surface, cofee on keyboard, ect...) i have believed in lenovo quality.
