Hi,
Welcome to the forum.

You'll have to give quite a few more details if you would like some help.

What Operating System?
What is your hardware?
When is the error happening?
Are you trying to install an operating system?
Have you tried a Live operating system?
That is just for starters - I'm sure there will be many more questions.

Make sure the SATA connector in your HDD/SSD is making proper contact

I am not very pro in linux or laptop hardware, How can I check if SATA connector in HDD is making proper contact?

I was not able to boot linux mint 19.1, so I tried fresh installation of linux mint 19.2, I selected erase everything and install fresh, But now I am getting
input/output error during write on dev/sda
Also while checking the installation logs, There is an error pooping up
ATA Bus error
What to do, I am using lenovo IdeaPad 330 with 2tb hard drive, 8gb ram and i5 8th gen processor.

My laptop keyboard keys were not working so I contacted customer care and they replaced my keyboard, Since then I am not able to use my system.

Is it a hardware issue or is there some method I can fix it using bootable usb stick.

Any help will be appreciated. I am stuck right now.

That is probably your problem, they have disturbed something else or failed to reconnect something. You could download the manual for your laptop and find out how to remove/replace the HDD/SSD (maybe a faulty connection):

Or, go back to customer care and get them to fix it - looks like they caused it.

Which is telling you that the drive has failed (unlikely) or that customer care dislodged or disconnected the drive cable when they replaced your keyboard (more likely).

Such a dumb service engineer he was. I my self open the back panel and I saw that i/o connector was loose.

:oops: I spent my whole night by checking linux/ windows os, hard disk repair program, backing up my data.

And the issue was caused by loose i/o connection.

Really fed up with that service person.

Thanks @gittiest personITW @AndyMH @cabbagetreemo for your support.
