M2 SSD Detection Problem on my ThinkPad 470s

Hi,

 

I was working on my computer yesterday evening (transfering pictures from my laptop to a server in order to have a back up copy) and suddenly I had a black screen with the error 2100 : detection error on M2

Since that my computer doesn't work and it seems that the SSD is not recognized at all. I can't see him on the BIOS.

My laptop is 6 months old so I'm a little surprised by this kind of problem. I can't access to Windows so it seems that I have lost all my data (and I don't have any backup - I know that I'm wrong on that point Smiley Frustrated).

 

I don't know what to do now but it seems that I'm not the only person who face this issue (found topics on others forums but didn't find any solution which work for me)

 

Does someones had the same issue before or have an idea of what to do ? I'm very surprised that the SSD  can be dead (only 6 months running). What can I try to recover my data ?

 

Thank you a lot

 

Celine

This problem usually means that the SSD has died.  Do you have a warranty?  This is the time to use it

You might try putting the SSD indo a USB housing.  The timing might be a little different and let you get something off

I have bought 2 adaptator in order to see if I can see the disk but strangely, my disk is a bit longer that the adaptator (yet I checked the reference, so strange)

Re: M2 SSD Detection Problem on my ThinkPad 470s

Looking at the base spec, the T470s can have either SATA or PCIe m.2 SSDs.

 

AFAIK there's still no USB adapter for PCIe drives so you may be out of luck there.  There are PCIe m.2 adapter _cards_ for desktops but that's a complicated option.

 

good luck,

Z.

Re: M2 SSD Detection Problem on my ThinkPad 470s

Thank you for the reply. It seems that its a PCI format. I have tried to put my disk on a P50 (which have 2 slots) but I was not able to see the disk in the BIOS. Do you think that I need to do something special in the BIOS (which can explain why I don't see it). Thank you a lot ! :-)
