ThinkPad T470 - 2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)

2017-09-24, 6:46 AM

Hi Lenovo Community, 

 

around April/May I bought a T470 and since then my Notebook is crashing from time to time out of nothing with the apparently famous "2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)" error.

First this error screen shows up:

 

 

 

 

 

Before starting this thread I had a look into the community and the older posts. This seems to be a problem which comes up often with all kind of Lenovo Notebooks (ThinkPads and also IdeaPads) however there was no thread for the T470 model yet and the suggested solutions (mostly only to update the drivers) didn't really solve my problem...!

All my drivers are regularly updated via Lenovo Companion and yet the problem still comes out of nothing...

Does anyone have an idea?

Thank you.

Best Regards,
GT500M

My experience has been that this problem is generally caused by a bad drive.  (responding too slowly)

Hi,

 

Same issue on my 470s. The SSD seems to be not detected at all. Did you find a solution ? I'm afraid to have lost all the data... My computer is 6 months olds :-(

Issue still comes up from time to time although all Lenovo, driver, OS, Firmware updates and patches are always installed and up to date...
Lenovo is also not much of a help here...!

Oh so it works for you but sometimes you have a crash ? Because since I've posted, my laptop didn't start anymore. I mean I can access to the BIOS but the SSD is not detected. I didn't contact Lenovo for the moment because I suppose that they will replace the SSD without findind a solution for my data :-( I would like to update drivers, firmware etc but I don't know how to proceed :-/

Did you ever get this resolved? I just received this error on a 6-month old X1 Carbon.

My SSD is dead !

I have sent it to a company in order to try to recover my data but after weeks the result is : impossible ! They have tried everything (It seems that the problem comes from a connection so impossible to recover data and the SSD is just unusable.

The connection to the hard drive is a little fragile. Just had the same issue and it appears that dumping rather than placing the laptop in the bag was enough to disconnect the cable partially, so I've just put it back in place and error has disappeared.

Maybe worth adding a bit of tape to the connection to prevent it happening again.
