Desktop AMD A10-Series - hardware scan failures

Q: Desktop AMD A10-Series - hardware scan failures

Hi folks, I've owned this computer for about 90 days or so. It's ran pretty well up to this point. Now saved notepad documents open slowly as does my external storage drive. A scan was ran using the Lenovo solution center. The scan shows a number of failures in a storage device. The error code is: W13E7552K-4GA8B8. The areas of the failures are: ST2000DM001-1ER164 - 1.82 TBs (Targeted Read Test - FAILED) (SMART Short Self Test - FAILED) (SMART Drive Self Test - FAILED) Any suggestions on what to do about this? Pretty disappointed that I have a problem so quickly with this computer.

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.)

It looks like you have got a defective Seagate HD, which means back up all of your important data to a USB or DVD drive ASAP, and once the backup is complete, you might try to create recovery media if you can. Unfortunately, sometimes you get hard drives that just go bad even from manufacturers like Seagate, and there is not really much you can do but to go to http://support.lenovo.com/ let it detect your system, click on Warranty and Repair and open a warranty support ticket online, or just call Lenovo Support at (877) 453-6686 and open a ticket over the phone. Typically they will send someone out to replace the hard drive with a new one under warranty. I had to have a system board replaced after about 7 months, and it took less than a week to have the part shipped and a tech out to install it, but with the HD, they might be able to just send it to you directly if you are up to installing it yourself. Good Luck,

I've been having a constant issue since I got this desktop with a popup message saying that a USB device needs more power than the port can supply. The only USB devices I use are a mouse, keyboard and an external hard drive and it seems to happen at random. I've run hardware scans and each time the results show a failure with the motherboard USB test. If anyone has advice about this issue it would be very appreciated. (I am using my old keyboard because I don't care for the one that came with the desktop, so I don't know if that could be the problem or not.)

Recently I have had a series of hard drive failures. Three different hard drives have failed in the past month, two of them new. Each hard drive failed the same way, initially the MoBo would not detect the hard drive, I would then change the Sata port and it would be detected again. The hard drive would then start failing during use, as a result the computer would just reboot and I would be left with a non system disk error in bios. After that any attempt to use the hard drive fails because of many many bad sectors on the disk. What I need to know most is, what is causing the problem and is there any way to fix these bad sectors (I have used the Vista built in disk check to no avail.

Alrighty, here goes... I've searched high and low for an answer to this problem and even ran across a few similar sounding problems, but no real solutions. Unfortunately, I want to make this as short as possible, but hopefully typing up the whole situation in detail until "what's going on now" might isolate the problem.

About 6 days ago I was kicking back and enjoying a game of Savage, when suddenly the game crashed and the good ol' "submit X report blah-blah" screen popped up for submitting a crash report to S2 games. Thinking this was just a random crash that sometimes happens with the game, I tried booting it back up again. I get to the game menu, the monitor blanks out and all I get is sound. I try alt-tabbing out, ctr-alt-del - no response. So, I have to do a hard reboot.

System boots back online fine and I cruise around to see if maybe it's just the game or maybe my system is stressed for some unknown reason. So I try something a bit more rough, Doom 3. Starts running, initializing, the intro movie sound kicks in, but the screen freezes and the monitor blanks out again forcing another hard reboot. At this point, I am getting worried, I never overclock and heat has never been an issue in the two years this system has been running even with graphic intensive games (the graphics card is a Gainward Geforce Ti4600 - and has performed well up until now), so I decide to see if a driver went corrupt.

I check my drivers and do a DXdiag,... Read more

Hi codexaenir

A friend has brought his PC for me to look at as he has been having some serious problems with it.

A couple of weeks ago, the PC wouldnt boot up past the motherboard manufacturer 'welcome' screen - after a bit of investigation, it looked like one of his RAM modules was bust.

We replaced the RAM and everything appeared to be working fine.

This weekend, it looks as though the HD has now failed - it boots past the 'welcome' screen but then we get a 'disk read' error.

I've removed the HD and tried to slave it to my PC but to no avail.

The motherboard is a Micro Star International (MSI) & the HD is a Western Digital Caviar WD1200 (120gig).

I've got a sneaky feeling (whether rightly or wrongly) that there could be an issue with the power supply - has anyone any views/advice?

Thanks in advance.

A:Hardware Failures

of course the PSU could be the problem...but we have to look at the underlying issues
here..did you test the RAM before you changed it - how did you test it ?....what have you used to test the HDD ?

HDD failure can be very insidious - it will make your pc do all sorts of strange things (like you
described) Find out for certain if the RAM is bust and/or the hdd.

I posted this in the security forums, and there wasn't much success in finding a solution. Moreover, due to recent changes in the problem, this thread is best suited here.

New problem to solve. My computer's on the fritz. When I boot it into Windows XP Professional, I have about 15 seconds after logging in before my computer freezes. To prevent this, I looked at the taskmanager, and began disabling three all caps .exe files that start that were unfamiliar to me. I believed them to be a virus.

When I google'd them all, they appear to be programs that should be running. One is a Creative executable, and the others are monitor programs for an Epson Stylus printer I have access to on our network.

Only after I disable these does the machine work fine, for a while. It will still freeze up when I'm working once and a while.

I've run virus scans, spyware, and adware scans, and there appears to be no malicious files.

Whenever the computer locks up, 10% of the time, on a restart I'll get strange POST noises (a repeated one second beep). Usually turning off the machine and wiggling the RAM fixes this. The RAM is all fairly new, so I don't assume that to be the problem.

Just recently, when it froze, I got a very strange error just after the memory test. Something about a CMOS error, reverting back to defaults. I hit F1 to continue. Never seen this message until just now.

The computer seems to lock up when I'm taxing it by playing an intense ... Read more

For about six months now, I have been experiencing random restarts while using Windows XP. The problem started after I moved my PC to my new house, and I hadn't installed any new programs or hardware for several weeks. It had been very stable for several months before. I have unchecked the "restart on system failure" box, and still the restarts occur, with a blue screen appearing for half a second or so, not long enough to read. Microsoft OCA reports that the error is caused by a hardware failure. The erros truly are random and do not occur during specific tasks or programs. My computer will, at times, restart several times at night while I am not even using it. It may go several days without restarting, or may restart several times during a day, but has never gone an entire week without a reboot.
Here is what I have tried:

Flashed BIOS to the latest revision.
Replaced power supply (with a 500W Antec)
Reformatted and reinstalled Win XP (w/ all updates)
Swapped out RAM from another computer.

I am willing to spend money on new hardware, but I would like to find some way of determining the exact problem before I spend money replacing everything. Any advice would be helpful.

My specs:
P4 2.6, 800 bus w/HT
512MB PC3200
GigaByte 81PE1000 Pro F11 rev. Mobo

I have a Lenovo X61 laptop. A week ago the hard-drive I bought after getting the laptop died. I put the original hard-drive in and did a factory reset (Vista was jacked) using Lenovo's rescue and recovery.

The first reset never gave me the option to set up a user--it just set up an admin account.

I did another reset. That one let me setup a user account. I installed NOD32, Outpost, and Firefox. After rebooting I couldn't do anything without the computer crashing.

I did a third reset. Did the Sp1 upgrade. After a couple log-ins it started freezing again if I tried to do anything.

Same after the fourth reset.

I gave up on Vista and tried installing Ubuntu. The install made it to about 70% before giving me an error saying it couldn't finish the install, and that the disk could be bad. I tried burning Ubuntu to another disk. Same error around 70%.

I've done a full scan with the PC-Doctor in the rescue and recovery option. The only error that comes up is SMBIOS, which I've read doesn't affect the computer's performance.

Any ideas on what's going on?

I recently installed Windows 10 on my HP Elitebook 2740p. The installation went fine and the Os worked great. I come to a problem only when I restart the computer. Once it shuts down and begins to turn back on the Caps lock and Num lock keys on my laptop blink 5 times. According to HP support forums this signals a General Board Failure. When I shut down normally the laptop boots fine and after blinking 5 times the computer hangs for a second then boots up fine. I'm trying this on my laptop right now without any issues but I don't know how to tell if this is a false alarm caused by Windows 10 or if something in my laptop is actually failing.

Hi, I have a 2.5 year old Toshiba Satellite that has had major issues in the past year. In the last 6 months, I have had to replace the hard drive, fan, cooling system and processor.

Some specs:
Toshiba Satellite with Windows XP Home
1.60 GHz, 100GB Hard drive (replaced from 60 GB), 496 MB RAM

In February, the processor was replaced due to overheating caused by a broken cooling system and fan. Immediately after I got the computer back, I noticed that it is running extremely slow. It takes 15 minutes to boot up, five minutes to load Firefox and another five minutes to shut down. Additionally, the computer frequently freezes and occasionally stops/restarts and tells me that I have experienced a system error. It also gives me an error message at shut-down on occasion.

I've tried to check to see if the issue is with software or the memory, but I'm very sure it is not a software issue. Additionally, the computer has a 100GB hard drive that is less than 50% full. I've defragged the laptop, run virus checks and cleaned up all the spyware. None of that helps. I'm pretty sure that I have a hardware issue because the problems were immediately noticeable after the fan/cooling system/processor were replaced.

I saw the slowness in the tech shop, but the manager insisted that they had repaired the computer perfectly and that the processor simply needed time to "break in". I didn't believe him, but I couldn't prove otherwise, was in a foreign cou... Read more

Most likely a setting in the BIOS setup. Go to BIOS and set the machine for best performance and see if that helps. You need to save the settings beofre rebooting.

If none of that works try looking at your Power Settings in Control Panel and set to Portable Laptop if it is a laptop and Home/Desk for a desk top.

When I first built it, a RAM stick was bad so I replaced it with a quality set of Corsair XMS2. Few months later - The wire that connected my power button to the motherboard randomly combusted, resulting in me getting a new motherboard thinking it was the problem. I kept it. A month or two later - Apparently one of my sticks of XMS2 died. I took it out and was using the 2GB single stick I had left, I went to BIOS and loaded default factory settings, and BAM - my computer boots back up with this

Boot Block Compatible Version ver 024
Bad Bios checksum
Looking for USB drive
Looking for CD

A message similar to this. I got on my laptop, downloaded the BIOS and put it on the USB stick which was freshly formatted with NTFS. I put the stick in my computer, it erased, then programmed, and told me to reboot to get my system back. When I rebooted, black screen. I've reseated everything and bought some cheap RAM at Bestbuy too to see if RAM was the problem. I don't know what to do at this point.

I have since replaced all those parts and am still getting blue screens that restart my computer.

I'm seeing some very odd remote desktop problems at work. The server is 2008 Server R2 64-bit. Unfortunately, I do not have administrative privileges. I have to escalate to another group in order to analyze logs. I have done this, but my team may meanwhile sit idle for days. All clients are Windows 7 Enterprise Service Pack 1 64-bit. I have full admin privileges on all clients. The clients that cannot connect are on a domain, and the clients that can connect are not on a domain. The server is on a totally different domain, and we are logging in with local user accounts.

Some of the clients can connect to the server using remote desktop. Other clients cannot connect using precisely the same credentials. This rules out a username/password error. However, it is some sort of username/password problem because repeated attempts will lock out the account. The remote desktop failure message is "invalid credentials." If I remove the system from the domain, the problem goes away! It seems like being on the domain is causing the credentials passed to the server to be invalid, even though we're typing the same username and password that work on other clients. We're specifying exactly the same username and password, and we're specifying a local user account by prefixing the username with the remote desktop server hostname: servername\firstname.lastname

Hi all,
After building my first PC in december, I've had a string of bad luck with hardware failures. On my first video card, an EVGA 7800GT, the fan was dead...not sure if it was ever working, but as soon as I looked at it it was dead. (within a day or two). My second video card (another EVGA 7800GT) starting artifacting and tearing when I unplugged my power strip from the wall, then plugged it back in, about 6 months after running perfectly. I didn't think to turn off the power supply or turn off the power strip at this time. Not sure if the problem is related to the unplug/plug in routine or not. While this card was being RMA'd, I also got a new LCD monitor, a BenQ 20.1" widescreen with an internal power supply. While waiting for my new video card, I turned on the monitor...it showed the BenQ logo, then said no signal and shut down. However, when I got the new card and connected the monitor to the PC, the monitor would no longer power up. Not even a green power-up light, nothing on the screen. That is now being RMA'd for another of the same model.

So...I'm wondering if all of these failures, particularly the second vid card and the monitor, could be caused be some sort of power surges. I do have them all plugged into an inexpensive grounded, surge protected power strip that I got at Best Buy. My apartment is pretty old, and I'm wondering if the outlet is actually grounded or not...it is the three-pronged only outlet in the r... Read more

A:After several hardware failures, could I have "bad power"?

it sounds like you just had some bad cards. I have heard of many problems like that with the 7900's, however i'm not sure if the 7800's had the same issues or not.

your PSU is a good quality unit and should not have a problem with stable and sufficient power.

as far as your house wiring is concerned. even though most of your outlets are two pronged, there's a good chance that the outlet box that their mounted in is still grounded (and that your three prong outlet is in fact grounded as well)

you can buy an cheap outlet tester like this one to verify that your three prong outlet is grounded. or if you know what you're doing, a multimeter will work as well.

good luck

GuysClick to expand...

Hi Dvi,

Hmmmm. CPU tests generally exercise all of the instructions, so there are probably some benchmark tests that each CPU mfgr runs at the factory to verify that each processor meets its specifications. I know there are floating point tests and integer tests, and there are probably some generalized benchmarks that are run by the PC mags, etc. So, goggle for 'PC & benchmark test' and you should be able to find out where to get some - if they are free - not all are. There are specialized compiler tests which validate the compilers, and some may be nearly in the public domain - i.e. free to use as is, but must retain the Gnu license copyleft (as opposed to copyright) , like for Gnu C and C++ compiler, but most of the really good ones are probably by vendors and are paid.

Then there are memory tests which I can point you to:

WinDiag: http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp (Microsoft Memory utility)

Welcome ytmh1989
1. What is your laptop model?
2. What is the storage devices being scanned?
You may want to check for disk error with Command Prompt (Run as Administrator).In the Command Prompt, type chkdsk /f /r c:
3. Run the storage device scan again.

A:Hardware scan failed

The code is pretty much useless, but after the scan completes, you have the option to "View Log", which will display the results in plain English.    If you open the Lenovo Solutions Center, click on Hardware Scan, you will be presented the option to "See Last Results"   If you click on that option, you can then click on the 3.5" diskette icon above the "Final Result Code" to save the log to a file that you can then attach to a reply if desired. Cheers,

Almost immediately after my warrant ran out I got a message stating that a Hardware Scan had Detected an error. Result Code WHD01V001-WM7WMF  It seems related to a Targeted Read Test and a Smart Short Self Test.  I had warnings on each of the Wireless Test also but I'm not sure the Wireless Network Adapter has ever worked on this well. At any rate, the computer is dragging so something is wrong but I can't pinpoint it. I don't have any known issues with virsuses or programs running in the back ground.  Unfortunately we don't have the money to get it fixed right now and I'm hoping that I can find some solutions or answers here. Any help would be much apprecited. Thank you. 

A:Hardware Scan Detected Error

Sounds like a disk problem.  Get a copy of CrystalDiskInfo (freeware) and see what it thinks of your HDD.

If the computer seems to run okay, then I think you should just ignore the error code.
