Question about Lenovo G560 06793JU Notebook
I couldn't enter to windows. when I check on BIOS Hard disk and Cd drive not detected. Could you please Help!
Hi, First of all I would check they are both connected. However it's quite unlikely they've managed to both disconnect themselves at the same time.
Assuming they are both connected ok I would first remove one or the other, then enter your BIOS to see whether the remaining device is detected. As these devices will often be run by the same controller, if one is faulty it could cause the controller problems and in turn it would fail to detect the healthy device. If you can now see the remaining device in the BIOS you can be left almost certain that the removed component is at fault.
Should the BIOS still fail to detect anything this could indicate a controller failure on the mainboard. To help confirm this I would try and connect a drive or ROM that you know is healthy and see if they detect in the BIOS. Another way to help confirm this would be to boot from a USB device into some kind of OS (Windows, Ubuntu etc) and see if the controller is detected by the OS. If it doesn't detect the controller this would be further evidence it has failed.
In a situation where the controller has failed it is often best to pursue replacing the mainboard in the laptop. However it can often be more economical to replace the entire machine.

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.

did you recreate the partitions you deleted? sounds like there's not a partition on the drive. when you boot the machine press the F1 key. that will take you to the system bios.. then press F9 .. that will set the bios to the factory default settings.. then press F10 that will save and exit the bios. If you have a partition and its set active..you should be able to procede from there. If you continue to egt the error message.. you need to verify the part5ition is valid and active. formatted would help as well..
