I have 2 laptops-

Lenovo V570
HP Pavilion DV4T-1400

Lenovo V570 - Its not booting up. I tried Lenovo Bootable Diagnostic USB Tool. And ran all the scans. It showed FAN not available (it seems FAN is working fine as I can feel the air from the side & the laptop is not heating too) & bad sectors in HDD.
I am thinking of replacing the HDD with HP laptop HDD to see if Lenovo boots fine. Can I do this & any harm to HP HDD or the data on HDD doing this?
I dont know much about hardware. Can anyone tell me if both the laptop has same type HDD & the replacement can be tried?

Laptop HDD's are 2.5" sizes, so they will work on any other laptop as they are all 2.5" and SATA.


You can put the faulty hard drive into a 2.5" USB enclosure to connect it to your HP laptop to access/backup the data.

If the Lenovo does not boot up and there are bad sectors it's probably a failing hard drive which is the problem, not the motherboard.

That said, yes you can put the HP hard drive into the Lenovo, just make sure the SATA connections are firm.

Could it be possible that HDD is suffering from soft bad sectors and not actual bad sectors? Give Seatools or WD lifeguard a try. Normally lenovo's are equipped with WDs rather than seagate hdds.

As you have mentioned that the scan shows that your HDD contains bad sectors, you may have to confirm it first. Do u have your HP PC working smooth? If yes why don't you connect your Lenovo HDD externally and check its health by using a software called HardDisk Sentinal. It shows exactly what has happened to your hard disk and even the estimated life of the HDD.
According to me if it doesn't boot:
  1. Check for the SATA/IDE connections again.
  2. May be damaged OS image.
  3. HDD failure due to bad sectors.
You can replace one Laptop HDD to another only if the connector is of same type, i.e IDE or SATA connectors within the HDD.
IDE is the Pin Connectors whereas SATA is like a semi USB type.

My suggestion is, check the health of the HDD first before any troubleshooting.

Based on my numerous experience, usually its a bad HDD; how about try to connect the possible faulty HDD on another computer and check if it will boot smoothly?

Make sure they have same OS in order to boot the hard drive correctly.

Maybe @Purshu_Pro was suggesting to connect faulty HDD as an external device and checking with HD Sentinel.
SMART values can be reported incorrectly if SMART warning system is disabled in BIOS. This is one rare occurrence 1 in every 1 million chance, incorrectly setting SATA controller could cause SMART to misinterpret data. Be sure to set it to AHCI and not set it to compatible mode.

Thanxx replying guys.

As I have already mentioned I dont know much about hardware. This is the first time I have opened a laptop & did couple things.

I dont know if HDD is the prob. I am mentioning everything I tried & you guys give your expert suggestions.

This is my cousin laptop & he is average user & dont know much. He said something updated & asked for restart & after restart system was not bootable i.e stuck on initial manufacturer i.e Lenovo screen. He showed laptop to some local technician & they said they will have to check it fully & they suspect motherboard prob. I too took it to 2 local technician & they said the same.

I tried solutions myself like remove the battery, powercord, external devices, etc... & hold the power button for 30secs-1min, tried removing HDD & reseating, tried removing CMOS, etc... solutions but nothing worked. Accessing BIOS, safe mode, etc... was also not working i.e the same prob stucking on Lenovo screen during boot. Bootable USB, CD, etc... was also not picking up.

Then I thought lets see if I can flash BIOS & if it will help. From Lenovo I download latest mentioned BIOS for the laptop model. I made a bootable USB with Rufus & tried to flash BIOS but didn't worked. There was a folder name "Crisis" in the BIOS extracted folder. It had a file named (BIOSName)Bios.cap & a readme file . Readme file mentioned rename BIOS file to Bios.cap, create bootable USB & flash BIOS. I renamed BIOS file to Bios.cap & flashed the BIOS & it worked i.e BIOS flashing started & completed successfully.

Now I was able to access BIOS, Bootable USB, etc.. was working.
I set BIOS to default, saved & started the system. But the same stuck on Lenovo screen prob.
I checked BIOS again & saw BIOS default set Controller to AHCI & on this mode HDD was not detected by BIOS. There are 2 modes here AHCI & Compatible. So I set it to Compatible & HDD was detected by BIOS. But the same prob stuck on Lenovo screen.

I tried Bootable Lenovo Diagnostic Tool. It mentioned FAN not available (it seems FAN is working as I can feel the air from the side & laptop is not heating) & bad sectors in HDD, SMART rating was good.

I tried Bootable Hirens USB. Tried HDD tools on it. Some mention not for my HDD, some didn't worked, HDAT2 tool gave some error.
Tried MiniXP on Hirens. MiniXP booted & desktop was there. I wasn't able to access any partitions. I tried Disk Management. It showed the partitions full i.e C drive 198GB, Used 198 GB, E drive 90GB, Used 90GB, etc...

I tried Ultimate Boot USB. Same as Hirens i.e some tools mentioned not for my HDD, some didn't worked. But HDAT2 worked here i.e scan started & detected bad sectors but it seemed like either something is wrong or it will take days-months, etc... So aborted it.

Tried Bootable HDD Regenerator. Ran prescan & it completed under an hour & reported 522 bad sectors & delays 1. So I started normal scan that gives option to repair bad sectors, selected repair bad sectors & scan started but after running for few secs there was a message in red HDD is not ready. I tried reseating HDD & started repair bad sectors again but the same message HDD is not ready.

If I try to boot the laptop without HDD then it goes past Lenovo screen & I get PXE E61 Media Test Failure. I think this is coz the system doesn't finds HDD or OS & tries to boot from network LAN & so the error & this is not a prob, right?
Default boot order is something like top FDD, SSD, HDD, ..............., network. I tried all the above steps with default boot order & also placing internal HDD top.

I dont have stuffs to check the HDD externally with other laptop. So I thought trying HP HDD in Lenovo & see how it goes & also Lenovo HDD in HP & see how it goes. If HP HDD works in Lenovo then could be HDD prob, right? And if Lenovo HDD works in HP (which I doubt) then further confusion. But then I can check HDD & other hardware with some tools from within the running OS, right?

Couple query- Lenovo had Windows 7 Home 64 installed. HP has Windows 10 Home 64 installed. No probs using HP HDD on Lenovo, right? Only I think could be Windows will show not activated as HP HDD has Windows 10 installed, right?
And Lenovo HDD seems to have bad sectors. Using it on my perfectly fine HP laptop will not affect other hardware & also will not affect my Windows 10 activation of HP laptop, right?
And using HP HDD on Lenovo will not affect HP HDD & data on it in anyway, right?

Over to you guys...

What about Parted magic on HBCD, did you try running that and check disk status. You can try flashing that BIOS.exe file on MiniXP and be sure to disable secure boot and instruct Lenovo PC to boot in legacy mode. I suggest you to disable PXE boot to network option in your BIOS, mostly your lenovo uses Qualcomm Atheros so i'm guessing, you'd be probably seeing Atheros Boot Agent 6.x or something. Set ODD/USB flash drive as first priority and next your HDD. Was your HDD WD or Hitachi ones. If your PC boots fine with Parted Magic, run disk eraser to erase your whole disk, if you're lucky it might restore your disk health to 50-60%. Run in AHCI mode while booting Parted Magic.

BIOS doesn't have secure boot & legacy mode option. No option in BIOS to disable network. HDD is Hitachi.

The BIOS I flashed as mentioned in my last post i.e Bios.cap file.. Bios.cap & Bios.exe have same name so it seems the same file with different extension. I flashed with Bios.cap. Do you mean I should try Bios.exe under MiniXP & flash BIOS again?

I will give a try with Parted Magic.

Don't worry about BIOS options.
Let me make this clear: The bios file which I downloaded from Lenovo for G500 had filename called 78cn25ww.exe, so just run it on MiniXp or any Windows environment and connect power adaptor while flashing.

Trying Parted Magic on HBCD.
Set Controller to AHCI in BIOS.
Selected Parted Magic on HBCD.
On reaching desktop, Disk Health - RightClick & selected perform test - There were few tabs on the window. One of the tab had kind of disk summary that mentioned good health. Selected perform test tab - It had 2 options short & extended test. Short test mentioned 2 mins duration - Started short test - it stucked on 90% with 0 secs remaining for long time so aborted.

Trying disk eraser on desktop - double clicked disk eraser - a windows opened with few options - dont know what are the options but first option was selected by default so clicked ok - next window mentioned block erasing or something available select the disk from the option - selected Hitachi & clicked ok - command prompt like window opened - it mention will close upon command completion & few things are mentioned & mentioned warning sector size not probed, assuming 512 & at the bottom I guess disk erasing is going on with GB size increasing with app 40MB per sec & eta 2 hours.

Is the above fine?

If OS is damaged then clean install can be done, right?
Just asking for the info.

Yes of course, as long as you have the HDD in good condition you can play it to its threshold.
I gone through your previous messages. Its really waste of time inspecting unnecessary parts unless what you are sure of doing. If you really want to fix this you can proceed with my steps. Just buy a external casing which hardly costs around 4$. You can keep this connector with you forever and be made use again and again if any issue of same kind appears. You can also backup ur files in future using the same connector.

Did you check your HDD with HD Sentinal firstly? This is the only software I highly recommend you to check your HDD health status. I always do the same first and then proceed with the next part, because it saves my time and help other customers also.

Earlier you stated that u have two laptops.

  1. Remove the hard drive which is not working from your laptop and connect it to a extrenal hard disk case. This now makes your internal hard disk as external HDD like a pen drive.
  2. Hard disk case will be available in your local computer stores. It is a connector device which connects the hard disk through the USB wire and USB port of your computer. If u dont have such knowledge ask the shopkeeper itself, he will help you.
  3. Download the HD Sentinal software and install on a good working system

Your hard disk health must atleast be 80%, if its below that then you might consider replacing your HDD soon to prevent further damages.

Trying Parted Magic on HBCD.
Set Controller to AHCI in BIOS.
Selected Parted Magic on HBCD.
On reaching desktop, Disk Health - RightClick & selected perform test - There were few tabs on the window. One of the tab had kind of disk summary that mentioned good health. Selected perform test tab - It had 2 options short & extended test. Short test mentioned 2 mins duration - Started short test - it stucked on 90% with 0 secs remaining for long time so aborted.

Trying disk eraser on desktop - double clicked disk eraser - a windows opened with few options - dont know what are the options but first option was selected by default so clicked ok - next window mentioned block erasing or something available select the disk from the option - selected Hitachi & clicked ok - command prompt like window opened - it mention will close upon command completion & few things are mentioned & mentioned warning sector size not probed, assuming 512 & at the bottom I guess disk erasing is going on with GB size increasing with app 40MB per sec & eta 2 hours.

Is the above fine?
The above steps i.e Parted Magic Disk Eraser completed successfully.
I restarted the system & it went past Lenovo screen & after sometime booted to attached USB (HDD is set first in BIOS. To boot from USB I use F12 on the system & it gives multiboot options)
As it went past Lenovo screen it gave a ray of hope.
So I put Windows 7 DVD & booted from DVD.
The process was little slow but worked. And after selecting language, etc... I got the window Where you want to install Windows with HDD showing Disc 0 Unallocated Space with options refresh, drive options (advanced), etc...

But below a yellow triangle mentioning Windows cannot be installed to this disk (Show details)
Show details mention Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computers hardware may not support booting to the disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computers BIOS menu.
Is this coz Controller is set to AHCI & I have to set it to Compatible? There are 2 options in BIOS AHCI & Compatible.

Earlier you stated that u have two laptops.

  1. Remove the hard drive which is not working from your laptop and connect it to a extrenal hard disk case. This now makes your internal hard disk as external HDD like a pen drive.
  2. Hard disk case will be available in your local computer stores. It is a connector device which connects the hard disk through the USB wire and USB port of your computer. If u dont have such knowledge ask the shopkeeper itself, he will help you.

Your hard disk health must atleast be 80%, if its below that then you might consider replacing your HDD soon to prevent further damages.
Using Hirens Bootable USB I booted in MiniXP & attached other pendrive that had HDD Sentinel Pro Portable. I ran HDD sentinel. Performance 100% Excellent & Health 5% Critical.

I didnt knew this way;). Any way it shows the result right. These results indicates that you must go with replacement with new HDD. There is nothing you can do to fix it, with the condition of the HDD. Go for a replacement.

I liked HDD Sentinel. And I found a lifetime key for version 4.20 here on MT & the key worked.

I am going to replace HDD but before that I want to make sure other hardware are fine.
Lenovo Diagnostics Bootable Tool has HDD, Memory, Motherboard, FAN, CD/DVD, Video, etc... all the tests. Recommended & Custom scan. I performed recommended scan. Everything came out fine. Only HDD as we know now bad sectors & FAN not available (FAN test is greyed out). I will perform custom scan too as it seems extended scan.
I dont know how to check if FAN is there & working fine. Removing the back cover FAN is not there. I guess to check FAN I will have to open the laptop fully & thats not easy for me.
Any bootable tool you know that will check all the hardware like Lenovo tool?
