I am new here, so hopefully this is the correct spot for this issue.
I have a Lenovo IdeaPad P400 Touch, and I think my hard disk drive may be failing. I have had some crashes, trouble updating, and freezing. I downloaded SeaTools, and the test results have been strange.
The drive always fails the short genetic test, and sometimes (but not always) fails the short DST and the SMART test, all with error code 6C9AC2A4. I looked, and apparently this code means that the diagnostic could not identify the serial number.
However, I don't know if this issue is serious, or if it is simply minor. Does anyone have an idea what this means, or any other way I could check the health of the hard drive?
