P43S Error: 2101 Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)

2020-02-09, 17:05 PM

I bought my P43s about 2 months ago, I added 16 GB of RAM and a Crucial P1 1TB NVME M.2 SSD to the laptop. After a month of regular use, I started getting the following error: 2101: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD). 

 

Here is the troubleshooting that I have done:

- Checked the SSD to ensure it is well position into its connection.

- Updated the Bios.

- I thought the issue was due to a faulty SSD but after I put the original SSD back in and returned the Crucial SSD, it still got the error.

 

Now I am really not sure what the issue is. Is anyone having a similar issue?

 

Could it be a problem in the miniSATA connection?

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

I would suggest making sure the SSD isn't loose--can you open up the unit, remove the drive and then re-install it?

As mentioned in my post I already ensure that the SSD was not loose in the computer.

Hello,

 

Can you do it again, just to be thorough?  Alternatively, do you have another computer you can try installing the M.2 2280 drive in, just to see if it works in that?

Hi, I do not have any other computers that I could test this. Since this issue has surfaced on both the SSD that I added in and now the original SSD, I'm starting to believe that it is possibly another issue that is causing this. However, since I reinstalled the original SSD (ensuring that it was very well pressed in since I want to avoid opening up the laptop as much as possible), the issue only surfaced once while sitting on my desk untouched for hours. 

 

With the other SSD I would get the issue everytime would take my computer out of my backpack.

Hello,

 

I had the same issue myself when I got my ThinkPad P50; and it turned out I had not installed the M.2 2280 drive correctly.  After I got it installed correctly, the problems went away.
