2100: HDD0 (Hard disk drive) initialization error (2)

Hi,

my just over one year old lenovo t410s is not behaving properly. It freezes up unperiodcally in widows and produces a bsod for a couple of milliseconds. When it tries to reboot right after, the following error message pops up:

 

Error

2100: HDD0 (Hard disk drive) initialization error (2)

 

Press <ESC> to continue.

 

Pressing escape does not lead any way, the only way to buypass this message in order to enter windows again is to undock the laptop and pull out the battery, and then insert it again.

 

I have read a couple of forum threads and tried some fixes and some registry cleaning, but none of them seems to work.

 

Is this a hardware fault? Do i have to replace my 128 gig ssd, if so will the warranty cover it? Or is there some fix out there

 

Thanks

//Even Låte

It sounds like the HD is failing FAST. 1st you should already have done. Get a backup image or at least your data depending on how long it will run before generating the error. Data is lost when it hits that state so the last file is likely incomplete or useless.

Have you run the HD diagnostics from your system? It part of the Lenovo tools. It could be thermal related as well. Runing in a cooler area might give you a longer run.

SSD drive, well I've seen a few fail and there is no bring them back when they're going.

I have already backed up the important data. This is my work computer so i cant run the hd diagnostics at work because it takes ages to finish. I will put it on run when i leave this evening, and check the results in the morning.

 

In the meantime i have elevated my laptop from the desk, to see if it can be a thermal problem like you stated.

 

Do you know if i will be able to get a new ssd from the lenovo warranty, if the hd diagnostics shows that it is a defect disk?

The computer is just over 1 year old.

You don't need the detailed diagnostics. If it has SMART built into it as well the short diagnostics which takes minutes on a HD will finish before you can have a coffee.

As for warranty you'd have to call the supplier. If its from Lenovo then them.
