Need Help. T570 can not load Windows. maybe the SSD soldering issue

2019-10-04, 1:53 AM

I bought my T570 (with a OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMe SSD) in July 2017 (out of warranty now). I have been satisfied with it until three months ago. It started with the blue screen (saying critical process died) and then it gets worse and worse. I had to start/shut down multiple times to load the windows successfully. Now it's completely gone; every time I press the power button, it goes to the diagnostic screen (can not load windows).

 

Many folks in the Forum have the same issues. And the casue is the bad soldering of the SSD connection. I think this is very likely a manufacturing defect, Lenovo should repair it for free. 

 

I took it to a PC service store near my university, they gave me a 430 $ quote to replace the motherboard. I don't know what to do now and appreciate any suggestions and wanted to know where to get the soldering done without replacing the motherboard.

 

Thanks!

have you tried to run the diagnostics?  Did it find a problem?
