ThinkPad P50 - 2100: Detection error on SSD1 (M.2)

2016-06-20, 2:23 AM



I bought my P50 like 4 months back and suddenly it has started to throw this error when the machine is starting up.

"2100: Detection error on SSD1 (M.2)". I have run the tests in BIOS mode and all the tests got passed. I have faced the error 2 times now and after keeping the machine down for few minutes and switching back on resolved the issue. But I can't be sure it will solve the issue next time.

Just bit of a background to the error. I have started my machine this morning, and from Windows login screen machine sudddenly restarted saying "DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION". And on the restart I got the error.


I do have a feeling that this not related to actual hardware, but firmware etc.



Any ideas would be highly appreciated.
