"Error code 0000: Read verification failed" Help

This is probably redundant, but I have yet to find a solution to my problem(s) with my T61.

 

My laptop randomly shuts down when left for periods of time.  I assumed it was an overheating issue, but I have an external fan that runs with the computer all the time; and cleaned it out with Dust-Off.   My hard drive runs unreasonably loud, and assumed it was because the laptop is about two years old. 

 

I recently ran a BIOS diagnostic test on the main hard drive.  The error "Error code 0000: read verification failed" came up and told me to "call for service".

 

I am no stranger to losing a hard drive or two and personal files before, so anything to help this issue would be an improvement.

 

Also, various little programs (that I assume came preinstall on the laptop) suddenly stop working, but do not seem to hinder the use of the computer.

 

How can I fix my hard drive because of this error?  Or is it time to back up what I can and get a new one?

 

Note:  No warranty.  Windows Vista.  2.00GB Memory.  2.00GHz processor.

Hi equalefk,


Yes, definitely sounds like it's time to replace the HDD.


Hope it helps.

Re: "Error code 0000: Read verification failed" Help

My son has just had this happen on his T61 in the last month and today I called service as it still has warranty on it.   They are shipping a box ot for it.    What will their solution be?    He is not concerned about the contents as he has a back up on a external. 

 

Will they replace the drive and install a restore disk?

 

The computer also has a possible loose ac jack.  I was going to include a list of issues will they even look at that when they receive at a repair facility?  

 

I have never had to send a computer back in what will they do additionally for it.

Maybe a new hard disk. To change AC jack, you must to send this laptop to a authorized lenovo repair center.
