Recently my X51 freezes and reboots almost immediately following startup. Having done so, it will then run fine for the rest of the session. I have run ePSA/Diagnostics and got the following result:
ERROR CODE: 2000-01 42
HARD DRIVE 0 S/N Z1E2W97X
SHORT SELF TEST UNSUCCESSFUL
Could someone please help me with
1. Does the diagnostic test necessarily explain the freeze problem or do I have two problems here?
2. Any other advice on the freeze/restart issue
The code error is reporting that the hard drive has problems, looks like you'll need to replace it.
