Error 2100 HDD0 Hard Disc drive initialization error (1)


I have only encountered this issue since using Audlogics software to remove duplicate files on my machine.

Nothing against Audlogics, I have used it before to remove duplicate images or mp3s without any problems.

This time I (maybe foolishly) scanned the entire machine and removed every duplicate file with every extension (whilst keeping an original)

Since then my machine crashes, especially when using Chrome, and gives this error upon restart. It will eventually restart.

It works fine in safe mode and does not crash at all.

I am about to go back in and try it in normal mode and run various software to see which one causes the crashes.

I'm confident that the hard drive is still fine though.

Good Morning, I have a Lenovo T-60 laptop. The

It really depends on what kind of cold you're talking about. External temperature cool enough to produce condensation in the system can really mess your system up. Even to the point of destroying it. It's always good to keep your system above freezing and even above the dewpoint of where ever you're located. If you're talking about cold being just starting the computer from any temperature from an "off" power mode to "on" then you could have a video issue. You can check your Event Viewer when it finally powers up to get more info on what caused the problem.

Hdd is not detected error 2100

Please try re-seating the hard drive.

If you look at the bottom of your laptop, along the edge there should be a screw larger then all the rest which holds a small panel. Remove this screw and panel. Remove the drive pulling lightly, with steady pressure, straight out. Place the drive back in and screw the panel back.

We had a lot of these issues, and they were often solved by just this manner alone.

Let us know if we have to go any further.
Good luck

I have a Thinkpad t60.

I have seen this issue before with my T60. It seemed to be related to not having restarted my laptop in a while. I used to use hibernate rather than shutting down my laptop for weeks at a time. Actually restarting my laptop seemed to get hibernate to work again.

In addition, you can check to see if for some reason the hibernate option has been disabled.

In Win XP (Win 7 is very similar):
  1. Click Start and select Control Panel.
  2. Double-click Power Options.
  3. On the Hibernate Tab, ensure Enable hibernation is selected (check mark).
  4. On the Advanced Tab, ensure that the setting for When I close the Lid is set to Hibernate (select it from the drop-down list if necessary). There should be an option for when plugged in and when on battery. Set both to your preference.
Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.com

If the charger does not help it to turn on, try turning on the PC without the battery, OVERALL, YOU JUST NEED A NEW BATTERY... good luck! P.S. "Never let them charging un-attended and or over night.."

Turns off itself

Sometimes a non genuine/un-activated copy of Windows can have the same problem. That's the only thing I can think of that would cause this. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Leo

Hi, try to boot into safemode, turn your system on then keep on tapping F8 to get the windows advance Menu screen, select safemode.

In the safemode windows go to Control panel and check your power options, you will see what time frame your system has for the LCD when turning off.

If this does not fix the issue, try booting into safemode with networking for you to be able to go online in safemode try updating your BIOS from your Manufacturers Website, Updating your bios may fix the issue.

I have installed ubuntu on lenovo laptop when i am trying to install windows from boot menu its stil showing the ubuntu

When the pc boots up look in the lower leeft and right corners to see which key will allow you to got to boot device order and then after you find it out press it on boot several times until it shows them all then use arrows and enter to select your device. Keep in mind Ubuntu relies on ext2 filesystem instead of NTFS file system. Windows xp may not work so use a 7 or 8 disk. You will most likely have to format your HDD to NTFS.
