Need to cd or dvd boot lenovo n585

I need to get my lenovo n585 to boot from cd or dvd but, even with the hard drive removed, I can only get to a network or hard drive boot. Looking for a way to get into the BIOS and set the boot path as I need it.

SOURCE: Can't find DVD drive under My Computer and regedit fix doesn't work for it

you may have to check the registry manually and if this will not work, you may have to reinstall windows.

1. click start > run > regedit > ok.
2. In Registry Editor, expand the following registry path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

3. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

4. Delete Upper and Lower Filters. (If only one is availabel, that's fine).

5. Restart system and check your drive again.

NOTE: Make sure to do this correctly or else, system will not load to windows.

If manually deleting upper and lower filters will not work then you may have to backup your files and reinstall windows.

My lenovo got a new harddrive and won't boot at all not even bios what to do? It's a g 560


You have to recover your MBR looks like, but first you need to remove the hard drive and see if it will boot without the HDD installed then get back to me ok. Also sounds like the BIOS may have failed if it wont boot without the HDD installed. But first things first.

I am locked out of my lenovo it only reads the name and tells me to hit enter if i want to bypass normal startup then it goes into the boot menu.


Hi
It sounds as if the hard drive in your machine has lost the ability to boot the machine up. If you can boot from a bootable CD/DVD or bootable USB drive if these options are available from the boot menu, then this confirms the hard drive has problems. Try using the "Lenovo button" just to the right of the Power button to see if you can return the computer to previous settings the worked. Be wary though as choosing the "restore to factory settings" option will lose all the data on the hard drive, and should only be used if your data is backed up properly, or in utter desperation.

Is there anyway to get data off a corrupt hard disc drive


Yes, usually the operating system is what corrupts and the data is typically intact. You will need the following.
  • Hiren Boot CD Here Download the ISO file and burn it to a CD from another computer
  • An External HDD
With your Hiren disc in the computer with a corrupt drive, boot to CD/DVD. You will get the Hiren Boot Menu, select boot to Mini XPThis will load a live Windows XP image. Plug in the external drive open up "My Computer" and navigate to your data on the C Drive. Copy it to the external drive.Now you can proceed to wipe out your corrupted install and copy your data back.

Lenovo thinkstation restart continuously what ido


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease might be getting to hot


another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit


hope this helps

My lenovo G450 is not installing windows 7 ultimate.I had windows xp and vista but cd is not taken on boot up although the cd is bootable and i have installed 7 on my desktop but not taking on lenovo G450....


Hello,
The Lenovo G450 is quite compatible for Windows 7, there could be following reasons:-
1. The CD/DVD Drive may not catch the CD/DVD becuase of lens may gone dusty, clean the lens. 2. DVD/CD may be damaged due to scratches, try another CD/DVD 3. Check the Boot options from BIOS, it must be CD/DVD on first boot
Good luck, and do rate the solution if got help

I just replaced the hard drive On my Lenovo ThinkPad T60 and I am trying to reboot and install the OS & MS Office. I have a blue screen that reads cannot reboot from any device: Excluded from boot...


Is the hard drive seen in the system bios?Once you upgraded the hard drive did you re-install the operating system.Remember this,,, if the operating system on the drive belonged to another system you will encounter issues when the bios and the new hard drive starts to interact resulting .If you have data on this drive make a back up so you may restore it once the new operating system is installed.
Good luck

Lenovo C100 will not boot to bootable CD


Hello brush71, it most likely is.
I suggest going to BIOS and trying to enable the cd drive.
If not possible, perhaps there is a hardware failure.
As you've described a problem with the Hard-Drive as well, I would suggest, if warranty is still applicable, to turn to your nearest Lenovo lab and have the computer fixed.
