2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD) / blue screen - my solution was to run CCleaner

I had a bigger hard drive installed on my ThinkPad T550. I decided to do this because a big Windows 10 update could not be installed because the original hard drive was full.

 

After this I started getting crashes, either the HDD0 detection error or a blue screen. I took the laptop back to the technician a couple of times, he first removed the foil that had been around the original drive, then added it back etc.

 

At some point I ran CCleaner and let it remove all the files it found. This seemed to have resolved the issue.

 

Today, which is a couple of weeks after I first ran CCleaner, I suddenly got the HDD0 crash again. When I restarted the computer, there was a big Windows 10 update waiting. I installed it, but the computer kept crashing.

 

I then ran CCleaner again. It found a dozen files to removed, for Edge, IE etc. (which I don't use). I let it remove those files and  since then the computer has been stable again.

 

I lost a lot of time because of this error and presumed it was caused by a hardware issue, but it turns out it was simply a Windows 10 update problem. I hope this solution helps someone!

A detection error occurs at power-up and means the drive did not respond quickly enough.  It wouldn't matter if the drive was completely empty or completely full.  I would make sure I had a good, current backup.

How do you use cleaner when you can't even post?
