This is a setting in you BIOS. Try changing to AUTO under the SATA drive settings by pressing F key during boot. It will be noted on screen during startup.

I would stay away from a OS upgrade till your are certain all hardware and software is compatible. It is a lot of work if it does not work properly.

Lenovo z570 screen blank when boots


Could be many issues, you need to give more information. Mine lenovo does the same thing when it boots. You might just need to wait for a little longer for the desktop top come up.

Other than that, you might need to reinstall Windows.

Lenovo z570 black screen at start up


You may like to check the Lenovo (IBM) page on screen diagnostics:

I searched the internet on "no display on laptop" which gave some informative results, but as only you know all the details of what is wrong only you can decide what is relevant.
I found the following interesting, but there are many more:
1. http://www.windowsbbs.com/pc-hardware/42349-laptop-no-display-screen.html
2. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AwrBTzGx1V5To3QA5QxLBQx.;_ylu=X3oDMTE0ZXVrMTVyBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2JmMQR2dGlkA1FJVUswMV85Mg--?qid=20090409183121AACuZ46
3. http://www.ehow.com/way_5272815_laptop-display-screen-problems.html (on the right hand side of this article there are links toother articles about laptop screen problems)

Does your computer beep more than usual when you turn it on ? Tis may be a sign that components are loose or have come out, or there is some fault which must be looked up.

To find out if it's your screen, connect an external monitor via the VGA port on the side of your computer Press the function button to select the external screen, or both, and if you get a display on the external monitor it's your screen or components associated with it, for example the 'inverter' or the CCFL if your computer has one. It may be that the display has become disconnected from the computer (there is often a ribbon connector). It may even be the graphics/video hardware on your mainboard. If it's the screen, you can replace it: detailed instructions for a similar model are here
http://www.insidemylaptop.com/how-to-replace-lcd-screen-on-lenovo-ideapad-z575-laptop/

If this is case you need to disassemble your computer and find out what is wrong with screen. The manuals for your computer can be found here
http://mobilesupport.lenovo.com/gb/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-z-series-laptops/ideapad-z570

But you rea;;y need to find out what is wrong before you can even attempt to fix it. If you are not able/knowledgable enough to dissemble your computer, DON'T.

Ideapad turns on but doesnt boot up


One problem that will cause this, and that is easy to check, is to look at the USB ports on the side of the laptop, and make sure they are not damaged or shorted out (with no pins touching each other). This will cause Lenovo laptops to fail the bootup.

Go on ebay & shop for a new PowerPak. That is your first step. If the battery is completely down from not charging is the exact symptoms you described.

Power cord light is yellow not green


Hello,Yellow means your battery charge is low, and it is being charged.


Green means you have a full battery charge.


So probably it seems your battery is out of juice. Keep it on charges & it should be fine.

If there is nothing changed, you may need to exchange the laptop charger.

Lenovo ideapad windows 7 slow to load and freezes


There are a number of possible reasons can cause your Lenovo ideapad laptop running slow than it used to, it is hard to identify just what might be dragging down its performance, let alone implement the necessary technical adjustments to fix it.

So if you want to address the issues more easily, I'll recommend you try a Lenovo speed up software, available here.
