Lenovo support for bad hard drives in Yoga laptops

Q: Lenovo support for bad hard drives in Yoga laptops

so our yoga 2 13 crashed - due to a bad hard drive. in looking at the pages and pages of entries on this forum regarding hard drive failures in these machines i find it incredible that Lenovo doesnt do something. When i called, i was told - too bad, you are out of warranty we wont do anything for you. My response is that I will never again buy a lenovo product and will go back to Dell - i have Dell laptops that are 11 years old and still running, unlike my just out of warranty $1000 Yoga laptop. such garbage they put out.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo support for bad hard drives in Yoga laptops

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Asking this here because there isn't a general category. Which range of Lenovo laptops would support dual-monitors with least hassle? I think I'm asking which models have displayport outputs as that seems the preferred route. The product selection system on the website doesn't allow this granularity of filtering so one would have to look through the entire range! Thanks, Rob.

Anyone know if there are any laptops out there that support 48-bit addressing and support two hard disks?
 

A:Laptops that support two hard disks?

Never saw one, since the whole point of a laptop is size. Also, the largest 2.5" drives right now are at 100mb, LBA48 hasn't been a factor for laptops yet.

Obviously, you can add an external USB disk, I have a 60gig USB 2.5" drive that's not much larger than the 2.5" disk itself, it travels with my laptop. If you're needing more storage, any USB hard disk will connect to the laptop, I've connected my 300gig USB drive to the laptop, works fine.

Hi, I'm on my third (!) Lenovo Yoga 530 laptop and unfortunately it has the same problem as the previous one. I sent the first and second one back due to persisting video_scheduler_internal_error,  and now this one has a second error as welll called video_tdr_failure.The first one happens when watching youtube videos and is very sudden, the second one I can see coming because everythig freezes.  I have tried a lot already- Chkdsk- Installed recommended drivers from this website as well as AMD Radeon settings- De-installed drivers- Contacted windows and they advised me to install windows again without losing my documents- Updated windows- Contacted AMD, they told me to go to Lenovo as they do not provide updated drivers for my graphics card - Tried most of these things; https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14238/windows-10-troubleshoot-blue-screen-errors Please advise me as to what to do! It's very frustrating that the problem keeps happening. What is the issue and how do I solve it? Here is a link to the mini dump file if it helps: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jjdt0ouvd9gqj4x/102818-7093-01.zip?dl=0Info about the laptop: https://www.dropbox.com/s/f0dz9r07gfs1lze/info.txt?dl=0

I have used a Dell Studio 1745 laptop running Windows 7 Professional for almost 7 years. It is beginning to fail in small ways. Just lost wireless connectivity. Before I have a more critical failure on this old 2009 Dell unit, I was wondering if its possible to swap out the healthy hard drive from it and installing it in my HP Pavilion g6 laptop running Windows 10. As a general question, can hard drives be swapped out, bringing their OS and all data onto another machine with the assumption the new machine will operate with all the data and functionality transferred to the new laptop? That would save me inestimable time transferring all the files and installing programs one by one. Does anyone know whether the Toshiba HD in the Dell would work with the HP, or how to find out?

Hi everyone--hope someone can help me with this one.

I've read the posts below on installing old hard drives in new computers, but they seemed to apply to desktops. I've got my hard drives from two old laptops; I'd like to know if I can use them on my new laptop. I've no real reason to access them, but it would be nice to be sure there is nothing I really want (the laptops with which they were associated died prematurely). I read something about changing master and slave jumpers, but I don't know how to change that, and I wasn't sure whether it was even possible or advisable to try this.

Alternatively, is there an external advice I can use to access these drives?

thanks.

A:Installing old hard drives in laptops

:wave: Hello & Welcome to TechSpot :wave:

Unfortunately, what you ask is not as easy as it sounds... Desktops are built to be easily modified with different parts of the shelf, whereas the notebooks are also modular, they often have different specifications for how things are connected...

It is possible to do what you ask, but it will require dismantling much more than you'd have to with desktops and might very well break your warranty.

Keep unpacking until you get down to a 2.5 disk, which looks (more or less) like a normal harddrive). Now you have to put that into a "container" with the correct connections for your notebook.

OR,

if you have a desktop handy, you should be able to connect them to that and check out the contents that way. It'll greatly reduce any risk of you doing something wrong with your notebook and is definately the way I'd do it...

Hope this helps

I have the "PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, Check Cable" problem on our HP Pavilion DV5000 which through tech help and research I've figured out is either the hard drive or it's controllers. I've been advised to switch drives, putting the possibly bad one in a good laptop and the good one in the possibly bad (my) laptop. I just want to know that this is safe and that there's no danger to the good drive (that'll come out of a friend's) - obviously I won't go ripping it out or dropping it. And will things just start up fine or will I have to mess about with the bios at all?
 

A:Switching Hard Drives in Laptops

Usually that error is due to the machine trying to boot from the network rather than from the hard drive. Look in BIOS setup and change the boot order so that everything is before the PXE boot. It can't find the cable because there is none.

Probably the BIOS will be set to autodetect and the new drive should work just fine as soon as you put it in.

Hi Everyone,

I have two Toshiba Satellite Pro L550 laptops; recently one became unusable due to virus infections.

In fact it had so many infections that I would have needed to re-install Windows in order to get a good working laptop back. Because reinstalling Windows, software, data, etc is so time consuming I made the decision to purchase a new HP laptop.

My remaining Toshiba has a faulty USB Port, and instead of replacing the whole laptop I would like to take the hard drive from it, and put it into the Toshiba that I have just replaced (with my new HP).

Given that the two Toshiba laptops are exactly the same model, and with exactly the same version of Windows 7 (32 Bit) installed, they should have exactly the same drivers. The only thing that I can see as a potential issue is that Windows may have some 'hidden' serial number that matches it with the actual hardware components in the laptop.

Can anybody foresee any issues with swapping the hard drive between the two Toshiba laptops. Will Windows just run after the swap? If not is there anything post physical swap over that I will need to do?

Any advice here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

You would be fine doing this as far as the physical end of things goes, as well as the drivers.

As you mentioned, your concern would be Windows. It may vary on your installation of Windows, but many times the installation is tied to the motherboard. Also see here.

To be sure, you may want to contact Windows. Though you could just try and see if it boots and works properly; if its doesn't, you swap them back and you're back to where you were.

Though in the future, Tech Support Guy does have a Virus & Other Malware Removal section that offers free malware removal support by members specially trained in this area.

Not sure if this is the correct form or not, forgive me if I've got it wrong. My son has a Dell inspiron 1525 which is bluescreen'n quite a lot and TBH the machine is past it's best. I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 which is in very good condition. My question is: is it possible to remove his harddrive and pop it in my machine and for it to load up correctly. I tried this but it doesn't appear to boot. He has a valid copy of Win 7 prof and not sure if this can be copied over to my machine or not. the initial idea was to see if I could swap the hard drives over (without the need for a rebuild) just to give him something to get him over the hump before he has to purchase a new laptop. I think the copy of Win 7 may be tied to the laptop it resides on but not sure if this can be decoupled and transferred to my laptop. Or will I have to rebuild from scratch and re-install everything again.

any advice or assistance would be appreciated..

A:Can I swap hard drives between laptops and get them to work?

You can follow these steps to Adjust Win7 to boot on new hardware with Paragon Adaptive Restore CD .

You'll need to reactivate at Control Panel>System. If the Pro copy is retail it can be moved to any other PC.

But this would only be effective if you know for sure the problem is bad hardware. Have you run full Dell Hardware Diagnostics from F12 Menu from boot by tapping the F12 key at restart? If the problem is instead a problematic Win7 install then the issues may also happen on the new hardware. I would Extract the crash information to post in our Blue Screen forum here for expert analysis, work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

Has the PC had a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 because the factory install is the worst possible install of Win7 one can have to begin with.

OK, i got a good question. I have two Seagate Passport External Harddrives. I am trying to link both of them to my laptop. Now, i have a weird issue. When both are linked, in Device Manager it shows both as active, and functioning properly, but only one will show up. When i look at status, one will show as "online", the other will show up as "offline". The sizes on the drives are 320, and 500 gb respectivly. Both show up with the same name in device manager. I was wondering if anybody has any ideas on this issue. I am a little confused. Is it compat issues, not enough power, or is it because both have the same name? Can anyone shed some light on this?

A:Multiple External Hard Drives on Laptops

I assume you're referring to Western Digital Passport drives. Passport drives are smaller and don't have their own power supplies. Due to this, they require up to two usb ports in order to be functional.

In order to connect one of these usb powered drives to a laptop you'll either need a high powered usb port, or two usb ports. A normal external hard drive requires a usb port for data and an ac adapter for power.

In other words, you either need four usb ports, or enough power for the hard drives. You are lacking one or the other.

The best way to connect multiple usb powered drives at the same time is to purchase a powered usb hub. A powered USB hub will power the drives and allow them to connect to your pc. This Sabrent 7-PORT USB Hub w/ AC Adapter is what I use and it works perfectly.

My Lenovo Yoga 900 has a cracked screen. I called Lenovo and the rep that I talked to told me they don't do repairs and told me to take it back to Best Buy or to another computer repair tech to have it repaired.   Best Buy said they couldn't replace the glass and neither could the tech that I took it to. This seems absurd.  Why would anyone pay over $1200 dollars for a laptop that can't be repaired if needed?  I'm at a loss, I don't know what to do and I want it fixed.  Does anyone have any suggestions? I just find it very hard to believe that Lenovo won't repair their own merchandise.

A:Can't get support for Lenovo 900 yoga

Who did you call?  If you have a nearby Lenovo Premier dealer near you, you might carry it in.  It certainly can be replaced.  (It might be expensive.) The manual indicates that the entire assembly (hinges, lid, etc.) are replaced as a unit, but I'm sure it can be taken apart, but I I have never done so I cannot describe it.  I have done similar models and they took less than 1/2 hour.  My guess is that it simply snaps together, but as I said, I haven't done it so I don't really know.

It showed that the SSD is only running at 1.5Gbps though it is capable of SATA 2. The reason I did this benchmark on the laptop was because I frequently heard some noise from the speaker when steaming a youtube video. There seems to be some bottleneck with disk IO or maybe CPU. Memory is definitely sufficient for 4GB. Anyone has information how to upgrade to the SATA 2 interface would be greatly appreciated.

yes, but in order to make a dual-os system, you need to install XP first, and then Vista on the SAME (unless you like swapping drives physically).

Hi Everyone,I've acquired a Yoga 330-11IGM and would like to also use it for some sketching/drawing. I've been reading some reviews on some stylus, but I've not made up my mind yet.Currently considering :Adonit InkAdonit Ink ProPac Dot S PenWacom Bamboo Ink  As I know that some Pens and Devices don't actaully work together, I was leaning more towards the Ink Pro as it seems to be the one with a broader compatibility range....But Still, I'd like your advice if It'll work with my Yoga.In Adonit's Site, about compatibility, says:https://www.adonit.net/support/ink-pro/Adonit Ink Pro will work with your device when the following requirements are met:Your device is a pen-enabled Windows tablet or touchscreen 2-in-1 laptop.Your device uses Microsoft Pen Protocol (MPP) to support active stylus.The brand and model of your device is listed on our website:  ...But i cannot find any info on in my Yoga uses MPP or some other protocol.https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/Lenovo%20Tablets%20_%20Convertibles/Yoga%20330%20(11_)%20In...  Can someone give some pointers on what should I make sure that my stylus should have in order for it to work with my Yoga? Thanks in Advance!

I am interested in buying a Dell XPS 15 touch but wanted to ensure it could support 2 hard drives before I do so. I notice that the standard configuration supports both a 32GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive so I assume that to mean there is space in the XPS 15 touch for 2 hard drives.
My ultimate goal is to replace the hard drives that come with the XPS 15 with 2 after market 1TB SSDs.
Can an XPS 15 support this configuration? Are there are other models I should be looking at instead?

A:does XPS 15 touch support 2 hard drives?

I am happy to report that it IS possible to have two 1TB storage devices in an XPS 15 Touch. I purchased an XPS15 Touch which arrived yesterday. I replaced the 32GB mSATA device with a 1TB mSATA card and configured the machine to boot from the mSATA instead of the hard drive. This is just marvelous! The machine is brilliantly fast now and I still have the original 1TB hard drive.
Be advised that there are a lot of steps to follow to pull this off (e.g. turning off RAID, cloning the hard drive, etc). Check out some wikis and blog posts to get the instructions before trying it yourself.

Hi, I have just ordered an S510 SFF with an SSD drive and based on the motherboard in the hardware maitenence manual for it, it has 3 SATA 3 connectors but only two motherboard 4 pin power connectors.  I am guessing that it has one power connector for the DVD drive, and one for one hard drive, but why would the MB only have two 4 pin power connectors and 3 SATA 3 connectors? Unless when I receive it I will discover that two HDs can be connected to one power cable. Is this possible? I haven't had a desktop in a while but I do remember that some power cables sometimes had connectors for two hard drives. If anyone has this model or a similar SFF model, I'd appreciate any feedback, thanks.
