Question about Lenovo 3000 Y410 Notebook

Laptop is not booting

Hi,

I am unable to boot my laptop. Its just hanging up with a cursor blinking at the startup. I tried changing the boot order and many things. It is not booting from the CD even though I specified to boot from it. But when I removed the hard disk and started it, it booted from a CD. I am not able to understand what the problem is. If my hard disk is not working, then how much it costs for a new hard disk of 160 GB for a lenovo laptop and which company suits best ????????????

After windows screen it goes blank, i know the lcd works because i can choose F2 or F12 and read and choose anything there however when i command it it just goes blank, no cursor, just blue / black ..blank


If the system will not complete boot, try the F8 boot menu and select safe mode and see if the system will boot to windows.
If the system boots to windows, you could have software issues or a startup item causing the system to hang at boot, try turning off the startup group items in MSCONFIG (Start, run, MSCONFIG) and see if the system will boot in normal mode.
If that is not help, hold the Fn Key while pressing the power buttong this should start PSA diagnostics on the system, see if any hardware fails

Hi, i have an eee laptop!! and some of the keyboards are not working!!! is there any key that can subtitute the fn key?


Hi wincel03_dar ,

I see that you are having issue booting into your Windows, I can help you with your concern. You mentioned that you get a black screen with a blinking cursor on the upper left, this means that either your Hard drive is not detected by the motherboard or Windows is not found, see steps below.
  • Turn your Laptop ON then keep on tapping F8, you should see a screen windows advance options menu, hight light and select Last Known Boot Configuration then press Enter
  • The Laptop will restart, see if it will boot into Windosws

  • From shut down turn your Laptop on again then keep on tapping F12 this will give you a Boot Menu Screen.
  • Once you have the boot menu screen Select ATA HDD it should be the first on the list if it is not located then the Hard drive isn't really detected.
  • After selecting the ATA HDD press Enter this should boot into the Hard drive, if still it does not boot and it gives you the same black screen with a blinking cursor then you can try reseating your Hard drive from the system.
  • Reseating meaning Remove it then wait a couple of seconds then put it back in properly then try turning the machine on again.
If still he issue is the same and you get a Blinking Cursor then it can be two thing either you Hard drive has gone bad or your motherboard could not detect your Hard drive.
To find out you can try and use your Hard drive on a different Laptop if the data from your Hard drive works on a different Laptop then your Hard drive is OK and that the problem is your Motherboard not be able to detect your Hard drive and need replacing.
I ope that this will be able to help you with your concern,
Thank you choosing Fixya.

Check if your hard rive indicator light is flashing (has disc shape icon or can shape icon next to it). If it is then put in your windows disc and do a startup repair. Make sure it is booting from the disc drive first. if it isnt flashing then you may have a dead hard drive. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it back in.

Lenovo SL 500 not booting after startup only black screen with cursor is seen


Dude,

Most of the time, the machine booting with the blinking cursor indicates a problem with the HDD itself.

You can do the following:

1) Reseat the HDD
2) Check BIOS boot order and see if the HDD is still recognized at BIOS level
3) Load the BIOS defaults (F1 at boot, then F9, F10)
4) If the HDD is detected at BIOS, try to access Rescue and Recovery on the HDD (F11 key at boot) and try to reload Windows.
5) If problems persist, I'd highly recommend replacing the HDD!!

Hi my hp laptop is unable to startup the Start up self repair is not fixing automatically in the system. It is not opening in the safe mode also.What should i do pls help...


One thing to mention first is if you get it booted. you can always go to system restore which will take it back a few day. If you can't boot at all you can try booting into the bios using the F2 or F12 key. From within the bios you can detect if there is a hardware problem.

New HDD inserted into Pavilion ZD7000 - will not boot from XP CD


Try your old HDD in it and see if that works. If it does work then nothing is damaged except your DVD drive/Controller. Try putting the new HDD in another computer, installing windows then putting it back in the HP. If all else fails then flash the bios with an updated image and see if that rectifies the problem.
