Damaged hdd - error shown by ThinkVantage Toolbox



I have an issue with my ThinkPad T410 equipped with a Seagate 250GB 7200rpm HDD.

When I launch the short diagnostic, the test fails on the second step. I have no particular issue with my laptop so I don't understand. What should I do?


You can try to use media creator to create a bootable diagnostic via CD/DVD or USB, and then use that to repair the HDD. Some users have reported success, although it can take a while depending on the size of the drive and the number of errors.
