An unexpected i/o error has occurred 0xc00000e9 + Clicking Noise

2015-06-11, 2:46 AM

Lenovo Thinkpad T530

 

Pretty much my problem is exactly what the title states. I think maybe when I dropped my lenovo laptop from the couch it messed up the harddrive because not only does the Laptop not even start up, but even when it is idle on the unexpected error screen I hear a clicking noise coming from what seems the hard drive.

 

I'm wondering is there any way I can fix this bad boy without completely changing the hard drive and I am also wondering if I can somehow save the content that was on my hard drive previously. My warrenty is half a year overdue and quite frankly I don't really have much money to spare to send it in for repairs. 


Any help is appreciated... Thanks in advance to the community.

Your HDD is damaged. Try to backup important documents as soon as possible and then run chkdsk utility with /f /r parameters. I guess the HDD have to be replaced.

It is caused by different PC components not being able to properly connect to your computer. There could be other reasons for the Error 0xc00000e9, like misconfigured BIOS/CMOS settings, malfunctioning hardware, or corrupt system files. One way to fix the issue is by reinstalling Windows from a CD.

Hi, This appears to be an old problem but I'm just experiencing it after a Windows update but I can't find a solution to the \boot\BCD, 0xc00000e9 boot up, unexpected I/o error on my N500.  The various solutions in this forum need access to the an input screen but I can't get past the black error message screen, even when pressing the Lenovo care button and F8 when the Lenovo logo appears, Do I need a new HDD and/or reinstal windows? The laptop is 7 years old using Vista OS.
