Warning icon on Volume C:

Hi,

After a new Windows 7 installation on an old ThinkPad X220, I'm showing a warning icon (exclamation point on yellow triangle) on my Drive C:. Any ideas on what I should do to address this please?

Do you see anything unusual in Device Manager?

Only reference I could find was that it may be Bitlocker enabled. Go to Control Panel - Bitlocker Drive Encryption and see if it is enabled.

Here's an image of what appears in Device Manager:

I searched for Bitlocker inside Control Panel, but pulled up nothing. Is Bitlocker built into Windows 7?

Thanks, I appreciate you taking the time to help me!

Your chipset drivers should fix some of those,

Laptops and netbooks :: ThinkPad X Series laptops :: ThinkPad X220 - Lenovo Support (IN)

The Biometric is probably the fingerprint reader,

Have you done all your windows updates? I would make sure you check the optional updates for hardware related updates, possibly a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) driver.

I think I figured it out. It's a warning I get from Hard Disk Sentinel, telling me the condition of the hard drive.

Thanks Derekimo, I did get the chipset drivers and updated Windows!

For future reference, did you find out what does HD Sentinel trying to say? Is your drive started to go bad?
