Make sure you did it correctly. Computer should be OFF when doing the one key recovery. Turn off the computer then press the small button right beside the power button. Your computer should automatically turned on and you will go straight to one key recovery software. If this will not happen, then the one key recovery is destroyed. We need to re-image your Harddrive to have that one key recovery software back to you computer. You may call Lenovo technical support department for further assistance on how you are going to send your laptop to our depot department.

SOURCE: my lenovo ideapad y560's monitor
I see that your Lenovo Y560 is having issues showing no Video, you mentioned that you only get a Black screen when booting.
I am assuming that there is still power on the machine but no video at all, Just to ask do you still see the Lenovo Splash screen? if not then we can try doing a power cycle on the machine.
* Remove the battery on the system unhook the Power Cord/AC adapter as well then press and hold down the power button of your Y560 Laptop for about 15 seconds then let go.
*After Doing the Power Cycle connect the AC Adapter again but leave the battery out for the time being then turn the compute ON, check to see if it will show the Lenovo Splash screen if it does then we're in progress and should show windows Loading up on the LCD screen.
*If it does not show the lenovo Splash screen then most probably the BIOS screen never showed as well on the issue.
*Connect the battery back n the machne turn it ON again check if it will show anything on the screen, if not then see below.
*We can try connecting an external mnitor to the system using a VGA connection it should show us the Screen on the external monitor if not then it means that Windows as well is not booting on your Laptop.
*Check the indicator Lights on the Laptop, one of the Lights will be a cylinder icon on the Laptop check if there is any activity from that light if there is no Light or any avtivity to any of the indicator lights then your Y560 is having issue with the Motherboard.
I hope this info Helps.
Have a nice day.

For you to perform One Key Recovery, it is done by pressing the OKR button next to power button when the computer is off..(OKR or One key recovery is a very small button usually next/ near the power button that has an inverted U-shaped arrow and usually, some models, the color is orange button)..Select "One key recovery" from the options and next, select "Restore from Initial Back up" after that, you may select "start" to perform OKR..
Just in case OKR button is no longer working, you may ask for the recovery CD's from lenovo to manually install windows.

Step 1: Enter Safe Mode
a)Start or re-start your computer.
b)Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.
c)Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.
d)Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.
e)Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen
Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.
Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7
Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:
1.Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.
2.In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.
3.Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.
4.Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)
Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.
