Default wiping laptop hard drive and starting fresh

Got a nasty virus from hyena cart this week, now my thinkpad is going under the knife. Its been slow, crashing, and giving me some lovely bsod information. If this fails I'll be grabbing a new hard drive and installing Linux.

I hate windows 7 but it teens to play nice with all my other house hold electronics =boxee, xbox, phones.

Anyone on here gotten a fully functional version of Ubuntuour another Linux OS version to work on a Lenovo t510?

Its dead Jim. Error 0200 unable to read fixed disk 0.

Curse you hyenacart!

Perhaps I'll get some more RAM so I can play games.

The lenovo t510 has been certified as compatible with ubuntu

http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/...e/201101-7181/

So you should be ok, I'd wipe it with DBAN (http://www.dban.org) and give it a shot!

0200 is a hardware error. If reseating the hard drive doesn't remove the error condition then you'll need to replace it.

The IT guys at work really recommend Linux Mint as it has been tested and tweaked to be more stable that new versions of Ubuntu. Burn a LiveCD of Mint and try it. Couldn't hurt.

Also, you should be able to boot from the LiveCD and test the hard drive from the CD. Google cd booting for your laptop. You will need to change the boot sequence so the hard drive boots after the CD drive. Hopefully you can see the hard drive from Mint and copy any info you need to a thumb drive.

Error 0200 is the hard drive (seems more a generic hardware error with the drive) issue. http://support.lenovo.com/en_PH/down...DocID=HT001427 It could also be the connection on the motherboard/system board. If it's still under warranty, call Lenovo support. Otherwise, you'll need to decide if you want to spend money getting it fixed, or just replace it.

While that might resolve the issue, it also might not. Without actual hardware diagnostic tools, you're shooting in the dark, hoping that it's just the hard drive.

At least with drives being as cheap as they are these days, you won't be out too much if it isn't just the drive. I do hope you at least went with a solid make/model for the replacement drive.
