x1 carbon gen 3 Error. 2103: Detection error on SSD0 (M.2)

Q: x1 carbon gen 3 Error. 2103: Detection error on SSD0 (M.2)

Hi, I get the error when I start the laptop and after some time the window will start to work withount any problems and after some time it crashes.I didn't install a new SSD or any new hardware. I updated all drivers and bios but still the same error. I also followed the steps to open the laptop, clean it and reinstalled SSD to make sure it was not loose. I also downloaded multiple third party software to check the health of the system and everything looks to be working fine. I also tried the lenovo diagnostic during booting still no error.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hey everyone I know this is a lot but if anyone is willing to help it would be greatly appreciated. So out of the blue randomly a few days ago, I tried booting my pc up and it lead to a screen stating 2103: Detection error on SSD0 (M.2). The ssd is the default one that came with the machine, the 256gb version. I looked into the BIOS and found that my SSD was missing. After rebooting my pc a couple times, it randomly showed back up so I ran a Lenovo Diagonistics test on it and it passed every test without any issues. I then booted back into Windows and I ran CrystalDiskInfo to check the health of it through another software and saw that it was at 100% healthy. The next time I needed to reboot I had the same issues with the error popping up, after a handful of reboots it seemed like I wasn't going to have lightning strike twice. So I looked through some forums and found this one. So I reseated the ssd hoping it was just loose. I followed this lenovo video exactly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8L8pQCciks Unfortunately no luck. So I looked around and refound this thread. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/2103-detection-error-on-ssd0-m-2/td-p/2161245 I decide to reflash my BIOS, following all the directions again presented.

Hello,   I'm using ThinkPad X1 Carbon (3rd gen = 2015, 20BS-A010JP) and trying to replace the SSD with one with more capacity, and facing a problem.   My current SSD is 512GB in capacity and I want to upgrade it with 1000 GB (=1TB) one. I already purchased Crucial P1 SSD ( CT1000P1SSD8) which is assured its compatibility. However, after replacing the SSD and turning on power, system shows error message "2103: Detection Error on SSD0 (M.2)" and cannot go further except escaping with esc key. It seems that the SSD is not recognized totally. Please note that this X1 Carbon is customized for use of NVMe SSD upon order.    I also checked startup screen which shows booting choice from UEFI BIOS, but the name of disk does not appear on the selection menu.   This SSD is very brand new as the I obtained really new one by claiming return and change warranty and I am now trying returned one, so that it is really unlikely the problem is stemming from SSD defect.   Of course, I tried everything I can, such as BIOS replacement and refresh as shown in the previous thread, cleaning of contact points, consult manufacturer personnels, and the situation does not get better now.    Any help, hints and suggestions highly appreciated. Thanks,

Hey guysFirst, English is not my mother language... So there might be tons of mistake, sry about that.I ordered my X1 carbon with 120GB SSD 1 year ago, and i keep using it like normal.Every thing works fine but yesterday my SSD was full. So i decided to upgrade it.i bought a Plextor PX-G256M6e and clone the old 120GB SSD to the Plextor one on my desktop PC.Once I install the new ssd into my X1 Carbon Gen3 2015, everytime when i boot it up, there will be a message said "error 2103, ssd detection fail" something like that, and tell me to press the ESC key to continue. After I press it, It will boot up just like normal and i can use this laptop as usual. Everything works fine except when it boot up. In fact, I'm now typing this on the X1 carbon. If i re-install the old 120gb ssd again, that error screen won't appear. Can anyone help me to solve this error? I've searched and find different solutions to solve this annoying error, but no one works, not even ONE. There are some post in this forum too, and they don't work on my laptop as well...

Good day dear forum members! My brand new X1 Carbon arrived fully loaded......with errors. Right out of the box it hit me with a BSOD (CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED). The system boots from the second attempt, but BSOD pops up every 5-10min. All drivers/BIOS updated. 1TB Samsung nvme ssd (PM961 f/w3L0QCXY7) seems to be using a driver dated 6/21/2006 and so does its "Standard NVM Express Controller". Samsung nvme driver cannot be installed because it claims there's no suitable ssd, Samsung magician doesn't recognize the drive either, however, it is properly identified in the device manager. Any suggestions before I ship this back..? Any help appreciated.

A:T450s Thinkpad - ERROR 2101: Detection error on SSD1 (M.2)

It is hard to diagnose without seeing it, but my experience has been that the Gen4 and later CPUs (like yours) support a very low power state that is incompatible with some devices. (that would make it a problem with the card) Make sure you have the latest BIOS and power manager software installed. Look in the device manager and find the M.2 SSD. There should be a power management tab. Turn off the option to allow the system shut the device off to save energy.

I purchased an X1 Yoga w/ 512 GB SSD / i5 a couple months ago - loved the laptop.  After a week or so using it I started getting random blue screens of death.  Following the BSOD, the laptop sometimes reboots normally, other times displays an error during boot "2101: Detection error on SSD (M.2)."  If this error message is displayed, the laptop won't boot and has to be restarted again.  After restarting anywhere from one to five times, it returns to function normally.   After experiencing the same problem intermittently for a couple weeks, I finally called Lenovo and reported the issue and registered to return the laptop, ordered a brand new one (again X1 Yoga / 512 GB SSD, this time i7).   After waiting a couple weeks for delivery, I received the new laptop a few days and freshly installed all of my software, transferred my data over from the faulty laptop, and got back to work as of yesterday.  Everything seemed fine, but then again today I got a BSOD with the new laptop, and the same SSD error!   I can't find much information about this error via Google search, and only found one or two posts on the forum here referencing it that aren't very helpful.   It seems like this must be a relatively uncommon problem, but I've had it with two independent laptops.  I haven't installed any exotic software or made any customizations to the laptop - it seems unlikely that I am causing this problem myself.  ...

Hello all. I've got a user who's T430s just goes to the ThinkPad logo and then after several seconds moves on but never gets to loading Windows. We just get 2100: Detection Error on HHDO. I had another T430s so I swapped drives. Now the T430s that wasn't booting boots fine. So I assumed the hard drive was going but the odd thing is that the 2nd T430s which now has the "problem drive" in it doesn't give me the 2100 error. The catch is the drive is encrypted with BitLocker and no combo of passwords or finger swipes will let us proceed. So my dilemna is I can't tell if this drive is bad because I can't see it. I ran Lenovo Bootable Diagnostics and they said they couldn't scan because it was encrypted. I put the drive in an external dock and connected it to a Windows 10 system and the drive doesn't show up under the Bitlocker to Go section. Is there any way to tell if this drive is completely done? It would be great to get data off of it but I can't seem to find a way. Everything I find seems to require a drive letter and this drive has none. Even booted into a live Ubuntu with the drive in the laptop and it wouldn't see it. Thanks all. 

A:2100: Detection Error on HHDOcan

A lot of people have had this issue with perfectly good drives, and some have said they resolved it by going into setup, and then saving settings upon exit.   Others have said that by pressing F12, entering the boot menu and selecting the HD will let it boot as well.    Another said that by changing from SATA to Compatibility in the BIOS, restarting and then setting SATA back to AHCI will force a reset of the drive so it will boot too. Not sure if any will work for you, but you might put the drive back in the original system and give it a try (if you have not already anyway). I did see also where Amy_Lenovo posted in the same thread that a fix was found for the X250 ThinkPads, but that it required the system be sent into Lenovo.

I got a new T440s with a standard disk hard drive. My coworker gave me a Crucial SSD 512GB drive to swap in its place. I imaged the current drive on to the SSD and inserted it. Upon boot, before the boot sequence I receive the 2102 error. There is nothing in the SSD2 slot, as we didn't buy this option. The theory in my workplace (tech firm) is that I may have accidentally turned power on while swapping the drive while no drive was in the primary slot. How/where in the bios do I keep the machine from looking into this slot to boot? Currently what happens is the error is thrown and I have to hit escape to boot windows. This is a minor inconvenience, there is no loss of functionality, but when powering up on a dock or rebooting, it requires user presence. Thanks for your help.

A:2102: Detection error on SSD2 (M.2)

t440s might have three slots for drives - one sata III 2,5" and two m.2 slots. Usually new laptops with HDD are shipping with cache m.2 SSD which is placed in the 3rd slot. Since error 2102 is msata drive detection related I'd suggest to check out your laptop configuration and remove small SSD since you have primary SSD drive. But at first check out the function of small SSD drive - cache only or/and hibernation partition storage. And disable appropriate features for that drive.

My P51 was bought with 500GB hard disk and I replaced it with Samsung PM961 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD. Windows 10 was installed on the SSD and all ran well. Then my P51 began to have this intermittent 2104 errors. Sometimes, I left the laptop running and hours later, the screen is showing the error message as shown in the attached picture. If I press ESC, then I cannot see the PM961 ssd either in the boot manu or in the Lenovo page through the App manu. In summary, the PM961 ssd just disappeared. I have to give the P51 a cold start and all will be running fine. Things I tried: 1. Keep BIOS updated. Now it is latest version (N1UET47W 1.21). 2. Re-install/seat the SSD on different slots. This 2104 error just keeps coming back randomly once per 1-2 weeks, which is really frustrating. I will appreciate any suggestion or comment on this.

Hi all

I've been testing AVAST 4.2 fairly rigorously on both VISTA X-64 and W7 7100 X-64.

Straight from the MS site I downloaded the .VHD Virtual disks (XP compatability mode)

AVAST reports that the .VHD file contains a "COMPRESSION BOMB". Now this doesn't actually tell me what this is -- but the fact that it reports something with the word BOMB in it means it can't be good.

Now as this VHD file was downloaded from the official Microsoft site I assume it HAS to be OK (or does it - I would imagine MS regularly checks its own websites - there's plenty of people out there who'd jump at a chance of attacking a MS site if they could).

I'm going to download the XP compatability mode again and have another scan.

VISTA again reports the file as CLEAN) so I think there still might be a couple of things AVAST need to fix in W7 when reading compressed or "archive" type files.

I can't post the screenshot -- once I see something with the word "BOMB" in it I immediately WIPE the entire machine. Schnell Fast, Pronto.

Cheers

A:Avast 4.2 - Error in detection in .VHD file

The Avast forum reports this: A decompression bomb is a file that unpacks to an enormous amount of data - thus "flooding" the unpacking engine. It's quite hard to detect such files reliably, so it's possible that it gives some false alarms ocassionally.

The entire forum is here,

The storage in my ThinkPad P51 is configured as follows:1TB SSD in the first M.2 slot (came with the Laptop)500GB SSD Samsung 960 EVO in the second M.2 slot1TB SSD Samsung 840 EVO (MZ-MTE250BW) in the 2.5 Sata slot (with an Eluteng mSata to Sata adapter)I'm not sure if it started happening just after installing the 960 EVO in the second M.2 slot or after some time, but when I turn on the machine in the morning (after a shutdown), I get the "2100: Detection error on SSD1 (M.2)" error.By simply turning the machine off and on again it boots correctly and everything works fine.BIOS version is 1.17 but it happened also with 1.16.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga, with a 256GB SSD and an i5 processor. I received it on April 29. After two weeks of normal use, it crashed and gave this error:?2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)?I could not get it to boot. I took it to a computer repair shop and they (Lenovo warrantee) replaced the SSD. It worked for about a week, then crashed again, same error. My tech guy said that it might be a bad board, frying hard drives; but Lenovo insisted on replacing the hard drive again. Ten days later, same crash. I unplugged it and put it on a shelf for the weekend, intending to take it back to the shop. Monday morning I plugged it in and it started up normally. It has been working normally for three days, but I am worried about getting the same error and crash. Can you tell me what might be happening, and if there is anything I can do to prevent a recurrence? This seems to be a common problem across many machine models, but I haven't found any solutions to it.

Hi all,i am discovering the same problem as most people here.I have an expensive Yoga Thinkpad 12, about 2000,= euro's in januari 2014, warranty endded in januari 2016, my extra 3rd yr warranty i have bought is missing by Lenovo (i forgot the registration but in the mean time i have send the supportdesk from Lenovo al the documents including pincode from the card) and now they say de extra warranty was canceled and / or credited. Nothing of that. poor service for such a great brand.But now my problem. about 3 weeks ago all of a sudden my SSD stopped and generated this 2100 error. It's a Samsung M27TD256 from the same series as Lenovo mentioned. Because of Lenovo's attitude of not servicing (Oh yes the supportdesk guy said SSD Failure, needs to be replaced for new) i went on to the Internet how to open the machine and without any damage that was no problem. I have a computer repaircentre myself and i tried to replace te Samsung SSD with: a 120 Gb Kingston SSD / a 240 Gb Kingston Fury SSD / an Intel 120 Gb SSD. All brand new, right out of stock, non will work !!!So i took the old original SSD, tested it in another PC and it works perfectly, i could install Win 10 and boot from it.I put it bak in the Yoga... nothing. the 2100 error again.So i thought it would be the mailboard or controller but curious a i am, i took an old 250 Gb harddrive, no SSD and guess what....... The Yoga booted up without any error messages, external DVD connected and i could install an OS (whatever, Win8... Read more

A:2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD) Where is ...

I had the same problem on a S230U Lenovo Twist. I replaced the MB and the HDD and the HD connector/controller and had the same problem. By accident, as a result of testing I installed the HD without the bracket that holds it in place. Voila it has not failed once since then. It has been running flawlessly for 2 months or more now. I havent bothered to reinstall the bracket since it is running great. There is almost no extra room in the HD compartment so I am not worried about it flopping around. Only thing I can figure is there is some kind of static buildup with the bracket installed. I tried bending the bracket to see if I could make it contact the MB to discarge static if that was the case. No good. Removed the bracket, and it worked immediately. I don't know if that will work for you but it worked for me.

Motherboard: Asus P5N- MX motherboard; BIOS update 903
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Processor
OS: Windows XP

I was trying to install a new CPU and in the middle of that process, I found I needed to update the BIOS. Again this took some time to do but once it was updated, I saw this message:

"The system intruded, chassis opened, or tempered before. Please check the system."

I looked up the issue and did a series of things to mend it.

Checked the manual. According to it, there is no switch in the BIOS itself, only a physical set of pins which by default have a jumper cap over them to short the detector. Upon checking my MB, I found this jumper cap was missing, so I ordered a batch and replaced it. Problem continued.

Reset CMOS. I turned the PC off, removed the battery, then moved the jumper cap to clear CMOS according to the manual. Waited about a minute to be safe before returning the cap to its original position and putting the battery back in. Problem persists.

Updated BIOS again. I'd previously had issues updating the BIOS only to learn the file was not being detected was all. Once that was settled, it was updated and this new issue appeared. After calling ASUS, the rep suggested the first two options I mentioned as well as checking for an even more recent update to the BIOS. I had the most recent one, but I re-updated it anyway. Problem persists.

Check jumper caps. I thought maybe the cap was not secure enough for the short to be detected, so I checke... Read more

Hi,  I need to upgrade the firmware of the SSD and when I put the SSD in Lenovo laptops in ROM mode. I get the following error "2100 Detection Error on HDD0" as disk can't be read.  After this it asks me to press "ESC" to continue. I want it to go to PXE boot when the DISK failure is found as I push OS in the RAM and then treat this disk as secondry (SSD) and then recover it.  My boot order is set as :: SSDPXE  Can some please help how can I avoid getting in the Press ESC to continue and make machine reboot automatically? By the way its 440P lenovo machine I tried this stuff on. Any help is appreciated. Thanks-Vishal

Whenever I try to restart my ThinkPad T440s, it takes a very long time to get past the "ThinkPad" screen.  If I hard reboot it while it's stuck here (press and hold the power key, then turn it back on), it loads just fine.  However, if I let it keep going it beeps loudly and angrily and gives me the 2100: Detection error on HDDO (Main HDD) on a black screen with only "Press Esc to continue".  When I press Esc it loads the boot screen, but without access to my hard drive.  If I hard reboot it again, it starts just fine. Any ideas on why it would be doing this, or what I could do to fix it?  It looks like it was a common problem a few years ago, but this is new to me and it doesn't really look like there was a fix back then.  Hoping there's better news now? Any help is appreciated!
