It means you will have to open the laptop case, and check wether the harddisk is in the good position. (exactly horizontal)If it isn't, it could be damaged, and that's probably why it's displaying that error message. Just take out the harddisk and put it back in horizontally. Be creative, use some cartboard if one side of the seat is higher than the other.\015\012If you have anymore questions, just post them here.\015\012\015\012I hope you can fix your HDD,\015\012Yannick.
