Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: HDD In X61 - Read Verification Failed

Dec 13, 2014

I had a problem booting and tested my hard disk with the BIOS tool and it reported an error (Error code 0000: Read verification failed), so I guess it is time to find a new hard disk. I also scanned with SeaTools and long generic test also failed.

I was looking at the Seagate SSHD 1TB SATA-600 (model number: ST1000LM014), but I am not entirely sure if this is supported by my system...
I am a bit unsure if my system can handle the disk of this size, but so far I haven't been able to locate the info of limitations for my system....

I read in another post here on the forum that all SATA drives are backwards compatible, so I presume that even if my system is not SATA-600 (as far as I could figure my old hard disk is SATA-300 model number: ST9160827AS).

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Error Code 0000 Read Verification Failed Even With New Hard Drive

Mar 11, 2013

My T500 was slammed very hard one day, once I reboot, it worked for half hour and gave up. I tested it via BIOS, it gave me error code 0000 read verification failed.

I presumed the HD is dead, inserted a healthy one inside and works fine for a couple of hours and gave up again, tested through BIOS gave me the same error code.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: CD Drive Will Not Read Any Media On W510

Sep 14, 2013

On my W510, the CD drive will not read any media. It sounds like it's trying to spin up but then comes to a grinding halt and repeats this a few times before giving up. Though in My Computer it does show up as an Audio CD so it might be able to read a little bit.

Here's a recording of the sound [URL] ....

Is the drive able to be fixed?

Lenovo B / G Series :: G710 Hard Drive Read / Write Speed?

Aug 12, 2014

I have a brand new Ideapad G710  with 1TB Serial ATA 2, 5400rpm with advertised speed of 3 Gb/s (= 384MB/s). I am running Windows 7 ultimate x64 with SP1.
When I test hard drive read/write speed (I used CrystalDiskMark) I get results of about 100MB/s, which is 3-4 times slower than it should be. I am not running any resource heavy applications (Resource monitor reports Disk I/O to be 0 most of the time in idle state). I have 3 partitions, each with 16-32GB paging file size and all are >90% empty. All partitions have been defragmented before testing.
Is this normal? Are there any lenovo drivers or utilities than I might be missing or that can slow/speed this?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510P Webcam Disappear - Unknown USB Device Descriptor Request Failed

Mar 28, 2014

Today I found an error in device manager "unknown usb device descriptor request failed" with error code 43. Then I found out webcam doesn't work/disappear. So I try to fix the problem and reset bios setting seem to get it back.

But in windows when I try to use webcam, at first it seem to work normally but after a few minutes it disappear and reappear immediately. Repeating this a few time it was again disappeared with the same "unknown usb device descriptor request failed" error.

Repeating the same bios thing again and it's back, running normally. Then I leave webcam program on(cyberlink youcam) to observe. It working fine for around ten minutes then it was repeating disappear and reappear again and this time it blinking like in this video [URL] .... so I turn off webcam, leave it for minutes and running youcam again and it's back to normal(Still working normally when I post this (working for around 25 minute now)).

What cause this. Does this mean my webcam is failing?

Also my webcam LED indicator flickering rapidly like the light bulb when turn webcam on and stop flickering when I point the bright light to the webcam. Is this normal?

Right after I post this it disappear and reappear again but only one time not repeating.

Now "unknown usb device descriptor request failed"  is back and webcam disappear again.

Lenovo P500 P/Y/Z Series :: Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

May 25, 2014

My Ideapoad P500 is approximately 16 months old (so the warranty period is out, obviously!) A couple of nights after a reboot I got the message "Repairing Hard Disk errors. This could take an hour or longer."... or something very similar. The laptop hung up at that message for more than 18 hours.
I did a hard reboot and now get the message "Checking media" followed by the error "Boot failed." This leads to the message, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed."No I don't have any recovery media.Yes I have pretty recent backups so that is not a problem.I've got an enclosure that I can use to hook my laptop hard drive up to so I can see if the drive is even readable.
Now here is the 64 thousand dollar question... how do I get the hard drive out of the laptop? I have taken the five screws out of the back. At that point, I think the DVD drive should slide out, but it does not.how to get the hard drive out?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y500 / Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

Jul 31, 2013

I have a y500 Lenovo gaming laptop with Windows 8, and for the past couple of days, each time my laptop is put in hibernation or powered down, whenever I turn it back on it gives me this message:

"Default Boot Device Missing or boot failed Insert recovery media and hit any key Then select boot manager to choose a new boot device to boot or recovery media."

Then it brings me to a page with 3 boot options, and only the Windows Boot Manager works. I'm doing scans and hardware scans but so far nothing is being found. This laptop is less than 2 months old so I really don't think it's a hardware problem, and I haven't downloaded anything recently that may have messed this up. I would contact Lenovo but I'm unsure if this is an issue with the laptop, or Windows 8.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z510 - Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed After BIOS Update

Dec 13, 2013

I get the error in the Title after i tried to flash the latest BIOS update for the Z510. I can press ok and then get into the boot manager but i cant choose anything there. Also I cant boot from a Disk with e.g. XP on it.
I also tried the Inside BIOS crisis mode (fn+r) with the BIOS file on my USB drive but it doesn't work and tries to access the file on the USB drive but boots normally instead to the error again. (Couldn't try it with removed battery as I have to remove the whole back to remove the battery on the Z510).

Dec 8, 2014

I have a x60s (t2400, 2gb ram) as a spare laptop (also just because i really like it).i know there are more models and that the cpu is solderd onto the mainboard. if i want a t7200 cpu, can i then just replace the entire mainboard? or does that later model have diffrent cooling wich my t2400 doesnt have?
secondly i hearred the discussion about 2 or 4gbs of ram. if i insert 4gb ram, then i just get 3 a 3.5 gb? and will an t7200 allow me to have more ram?and last is more an software issue; i use fingerprint to logon to windows 7 (home premium). is there a way i can set windows to only use fingerprint log on?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 Won't Wake Up?

Sep 7, 2014

My new W540 has the latest bios & software updates.  It won't wake up from sleep...or rather the display won't come on.  When I push the power button (pulsing green), it goes to solid green and the fingerprint scanner light turns on, but no screen.  I scan my fingerprint and the scanner light turns off, but still no screen.  The only way to bring it back to life is a long press on the power button and a reboot.
Nothing plugged into any of the ports.  It does this regardless of whether it's plugged in or on battery.

Lenovo X1 Series ThinkPad :: Carbon Will Not Charge

Aug 27, 2013

My X1 is about 18 months old. It was fine until today. The battery was low, so I plugged it in. The little blue light where the power connects illuminated, however the battery indicater in Windows did not change to show "charging", and the battery continued to drain.
Over the next hour or so I tried many things like shutting down, waiting, new A/C outlet, new power settings, etc. Tried the little reset hole on the bottom of the laptop. Nothing mattered... the little blue light is on, but the battery just drains.
Eventually, the battery drained and the X1 shut down. When I try to boot, I get a pre-boot message about a critical low power error, even plugged in, so my laptop is now a brick.This is a 3448-34U Thinkpad Carbon X1.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X230 - Can't Boot From USB

Dec 3, 2014

I am trying to do a clean install on my good, old Thinkpad X230 which came with 64-bit Windows 7 Professional. For some reason, I was not able to create a bootable media from the recovery partition. In any case, I wanted to avoid the recovery partition as I want a basic, non-bloated, and minimal install.
Hence, I downloaded a copy of 64-bit Windows 7 Professional from Microsoft/ digital river website. After performing the checksum, I used Microsoft's USB DVD Download Tool to make a bootable USB on Kingston Flash Voyager (USB 2.0; 8 GB; FAT32). BTW, just for the heck of it, I verified  that it boots on my spare (and even older) Thinkpad X60 -- though it doesn't proceed when it sees that the X60 has a 32-bit microprocessor.
The relevant BIOS values and settings are as follows:
UEFI BIOS Version G2ET95WW (2.55)
UEFI BIOS Date 2013-July-09
UEFI Secure Boot Off

[URL] ....

I am posting this query after trying a number of solutions : rebooting from a USB flash drive on my Thinkpad X230. For some reason, nothing has worked and pressing F12 only shows the ATA HDD0 hard drive. Among other things, I have tried the following:
- Updated the Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller driver using Lenovo's Thinkvantage Tools. Now it has version Someone suggested to have at least which is apparently available at Intel's website. I always considered downloading the device drivers from Lenovo to be kosher. Shall I download it from Intel's website?
- Disabled USB 3.0 from BIOS which made all USB ports to act as USB 2.0. Neither option works.
- Tried booting from all three USB ports (of which one is USB 2.0 and two are USB 3.0). Zilch.
- Have yet to try "reset BIOS to default" suggestion as it looked a bit of a last resort.
