SSD failing less than a year, what can I do under warranty?

by humbleambition / January 20, 2014 11:31 AM PST

Hi guys,

I have a Lenovo Yoga pad 13, that I purchased around April - May of 2013. I had my laptop undergo a diagnostic by the Microsoft Store whom I bought my laptop from.

They informed me today that my SSD drive is already FAILING and will need to be replaced. I cannot believe this as I have had this laptop for under one year. It is extremely hard to believe that a laptop that came with one of newest hard drives is already failing.

I was wondering what can I do about this with the limited warranty (I did not buy the extended warranty). Is this a manufacture defect, and if so what do I do?

Appreciate the help guys.

have a 1 or 2 years warranty. So like was said call Lenova and get a RMA and they will tell you what to do.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
