Windows 10: Lenovo G510 : Windows 10 Hangs in Startup after adding HDD Caddy
Lenovo G510 : Windows 10 Hangs in Startup after adding HDD Caddy
I have Lenovo G510. I am using WD 1TB hard drive since 2 years.
I bought new SSD and replace HDD with SSD and then replace the DVD Drive with that 1TB Hard inside Universal Caddy.
Initially I was getting problem the drive doesn't show in Windows 10. I reseated the Caddy once again after that it started showing up.
Now it shows the secondary HDD but after start up it stops working like I get 100% active time, and 0 read and write.
There is flip in universal Caddy in which there are 3 states and I have set in the middle, but the problem is still
there HDD that I was using from years stops working inside caddy after 10 minutes startup every time in Windows 10
What can be the issue?
Welcome to the TenForums @shanalikhan
Can you share make model type of HDD Caddy. Not sure what the 3 states are.
This is the switch and the this is the exact picture of the caddy.
Also i checked event viewer it said "Reset to device Device\RaidPort0 was issued"
Both links take me to picture. Can you please post make model and type.
I'll have to shut down to check if My caddy has the switch. I run the SSD in the caddy and the mechanical is still in the stock position. Running with dual matching SSDs I was surprised the one in the caddy runs around 10c cooler which is basically same as versus the HDD. I googled the model number and here's the link for the OP's caddy: Amazon.com: SATA 2nd HDD caddy for 12.7mm Universal CD/DVD-ROM: Computers & Accessories
*See the reviews*
UPDATE: The caddy on My G780 also has the switch. It has the switch in the position farthest from the SSD. Don't have time to check if moving it makes any difference since it's Sunday, but maybe next Week.
Lets try this. Did it come with manual that explains what the different position mean. Did it come with a reference to a web site that would explain?
I dont remember the Model though its the exactly the same one you have posted the link fro ebay but the problem is i went to shop today one again.
He tried to install 5 Caddy like this of same model but 5 different pieces but my Lenovo G510 doesnt pick the hard drive either it dont pick , only from 1 it picked and it got idle from every 3 minutes.
I have bought the SATA USB cable to connect but i want to know that why its not connecting
I havenot tried this caddy though only one option remain to use this, but i want to make sure it will work so i will order
Lenovo G510 HDD Caddy
The caddies are pretty much all the exact same one, except for the slimmer model. And there's no information included on the switch or anything else.They just advertise as fitting this model or that, but they're really universal. To Me it really sounds like the mechanical HDD is dying.
Also In My Opinion, the SSD should be in the caddy and the mechanical left in the default location. I have an older OCZ 120GB SSD that I run Win 8.1 as My Daily Driver along with some cheapo Kingston 120GB SSDs with Win 7, Win 10 etc. So using the caddy that way allows Me to easily swap the OS. (Love the NOVO button) The mechanical is a clone of My Win 8.1 drive and the rest of the drive partitioned for storage. My mechanical recently died and while waiting on a replacement I'm running a second SSD so I always have a fairly up-to-date clone of My OS.

For anyone that has a Logitech G510 keyboard and has the screen flashing problem when using the volume control on the keyboard, seeing as Logitech seems loath to fix it you can fix it your self with the following (not my video),
