Question about Lenovo IdeaPad Y430-5242U Notebook

I have a Lenovo ideapad Y430 with hard drive issues. The unit errors with a message saying that the hard drive tests have failed and I need to back-up my files immediately. I have unchecked the indexing box in the hard drive and that didn't work. Can you help? Thanks.

Windows is working normally and suddenly the ideapad Y430 shows a black screen and the following error messages: Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v11.0.11 Copyright (C) 2000-2008 Broadcom Corporation Copyright...


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

The Lenovo Y430 occasionally gets a blue screen. OS is Windows XP. The computer is fairly new. Could this be a software problem or a hardware issue? Would an upgrade to Vista solve the problem?


you are right but you can try this go to start - run type msconfig press enter.disable all start up items except synaptics and wireless if you do see any.reboot your computer.check if it happens.if it does then it`s hard ware problem.could be RAM,graphics card or any other accessory attached to mother board.take care.
