harddisc clicking, faulty harddisc shock protection sensor

hi there,

i have a problem with my R61i (Type 7650-e8g) for some time now:

without any shaking, the icon in the status bar for disc shock protection changes to yellow with a loud clicking noise. after some time more, it changes to blue. this all happens without any shaking at all.

if i doubleclick on the blue icon, a message appears: (german, as a german laptop)

ThinkVantage System für aktiven Festplattenschutz

Der Sensor für aktiven Festplattenschutz ist möglicherweise fehlerhaft.
Testen Sie die Funktion in PC DOCTOR DOS. Tritt der Fehler weiterhin
auf, wenden Sie sich an den Kundendienst.

basically that says, the sensor for active disc shock protection is possibly faulty.
in the upcoming window, all controls are greyed out.

alexst

Did you test it with PC Doctor as it suggests? What results did you get?

 

In order to contact support use the phone number you have.
