Question about Lenovo 3000 N200 Notebook
After turning on my laptop, windows will get to a certain point (just before the logon screen) and flash a blue screen saying that I need to run checkdisk. Now Lenovo have told me that I cannot run this program due to my laptop not having a 1.44mb drive. When I finally got the Windows XP disk to open so I could repair windows it said that I do not have a hard drive installed and to ensure it is installed properly before completing this process....
Gist been to Lenovo forums ... a guy replied me about my problem with the bios flash. I went to BIOS and changed the SATA mode to IDE. after leaving bios it restarted and I got a black screen, I chose resume windows normally and the thing works. try doing that, maybe it'll help you, too.
here's the link for his instructions:

It sounds like your Master Boot Record has become corrupt, hence you can see the files when you put the live XP recovery disk in the DVD. I'm afraid it's a reinstall of windows to fix (or ubuntu 8.04 which works well on the N200)

you need to press f8 on boot when it is loading, to enter safe mode (before the Windows flash screen)
then when in "Safe mode" you can should be able to gain access,
reboot from this mode and see if it loads normally, if not then you have a configuration issue.
go back into safe mode, (login) and go to start>Run, run a program called MSconfig, this will allow you to look at your startup items, and allow you to disable/enable them individually,
from this point you can diagnose which programs are causing your issues.
I hope this helps
