Thinkpad T490 Error 2101: Drive detection error on hdd0

2019-11-27, 8:22 AM

I got an error message 2101: Drive detection error on hdd0 after applying the latest updates from Lenovo. I searched for similar problem, and I found that it may be because of the BIOS version, currently version 1.55 is installed.

I'm having the same issue.  My company has over 30 units and two of them went bad.  I have sent it in for repairs but came back with same results.  Just for the heck of it, I removed chip SSD and reseated it.  I notice the screws that was attached were very, very tight.  After reseating it, I tighten screw just enough.  When it was overly tighten, I believe this was causing the SSD drive to lift, ever so slightly, to lose contact with the motherboard.

I have the same issue. I can have this error several times a week. Usually, after 30min or 1 hours, the laptop works again but it is very annoying.

I cannot send it for repair because of the coronavirus..

I bought mine in August 2019 and I really take care of it.
I'm going to try to reseat the sdd (disconnect battery first through the bios menu ) and see if it helps.

I am having the same problem. I have just added a new ssd adata xpg and, suddenly, after 40 min of normal machine running, it crashes and then a blue screen shows up, and after that, my machine reboots and then I get the error 2101.

 

What do you guys did to solve this problem ?

I checked with the maintenance service provider, and we found that it is a hardware problem not related to BIOS update at all. We had to change the motherboard. Then I did not face this problem again
