2101 Error: ThinkPad T430 and OCZ Nocti 120GB

Hi there,

 

After about month of use I suddenly got an error: "2101: Drive detection error on hdd2 (mini sata)". Simply while browsing the internet system hung up and after reboot the error appeared.

I've read that people here had same error just after mounting their SSD's - mine worked fine for few weeks.

The problem appeared short time after auto-updating BIOS but not just after flash. 2 or 3 restarts gone smoothly.

Strange is that now my BIOS version is still 1.16 when on the web since last Wednesday hangs ver. 1.17 - the update went on Saturday.

Any ideas how to avoid sending anything (Laptop and SSD) to RMA?

 

I have already RMA ticket from OCZ but want to save some time and don't want to lose the data.

Besides I'm not sure if it isn't issue of the new BIOS from Lenovo.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Gootchio

Hello gootchio,

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.

 

You should try and reseat the drive the computer is not detecting.  This should reset the code and hopefully correct the problem.

Hi Alex1901,

What do you mean by reseat?

I already did remove and plugging' in Nocti but it didn't work. I can't do anything software, because I haven't another system with mini PCI-e. I could buy proper adapter to my PC but it needs time and better be sure that will works because it isn't very cheap.

Having done some searching through the forums it appears that you are not alone having difficulties with the nocti, in the majority of cases the members seem to have returned it or contacted OCZ.

OK, I've just flash the BIOS again, to v. 1.17 - it didn't helped.

So there's only returning the Nocti to OCZ left.

 

Thanks for your help.

Reseat as in uninstall and reinstall the hard drive inside the computer.

There could be a chance that the hard drive has maneuvered out of place slightly, and this would make it not work.

OK, this Monday I got Nocti replaced by OCZ and it's working fine - by now Smiley Wink

So it wasn't Thinkpad's fault.
