Lenovo netbook disk error

A couple of weeks ago, my husband's Lenovo net book had a "disk error". He took it to a repair shop, and they replaced the hard disk at $100. Today he got exactly the same error again. My question: 1. Why it was not under warrantee? We bought it this year. 2. Is this "Disk error" common to lenovo netbook?

Pretty poor customer service of the repair shop if it failed so soon and they won't honor it. The new drive they installed should have been warrantied, and should be eligible for replacement.

HDD failures in laptops are common in heavy use due them being bounced around a bit. It only really takes one well timed smack to end a hard drives life. They are mechanical, and very delicate. To avoid this, have the next hard drive installed be a solid state hard drive, they are not mechanically, basically a giant flash memory (thumb drive) drive. While they can be a bit pricey per GB, see how much you really need, it will be worth the investment. The newest generation, single-level cell (SLC) solid state drives, are also much faster than standard notebook drives.

Hope that helps.

yes, you need a windows installation disk, but in your case a netbook doesn't have a cd drive so you need to convert the disk to a bootable usb you can do this here http://wintoflash.com/home/en/

To repair windows you can follow the following link:

I hope this helps, it's a bit complicated, I might suggest taking it to the nearest repair shop.

I can't get my note book to start up in safe mode with networking it just keeps going to the tech guys screan and won't start in safe mode.


Hello

When your Advent laptop isn't booting properly, you probably have a problem with your startup disk. When the startup disk is acting up you may take it to a repair shop, or you may save a lot of money and fix it yourself. Windows 7 computers come with built-in software that will allow you to repair your startup disk in just a couple of minutes.

Start your computer and press down on the "F8" key. Click on the "Repair your computer" option in the "Advanced Boot Options" menu that appears on the screen.

Press the "Enter" key.Choose your keyboard layout on the next screen and click the "Next" button.

Click on the "Startup Repair" tool in the "System Recovery Options" screen.

Wait for the computer to repair the start-up disk

Hi! They are right. Its a video card issue and replacement of the ribbon connector going to the lcd. If you want you can do this by yourself. You just have to buy the necessary parts. This may just require time and patience but will surely save you a lot. Hope this helps and have a good one!
