Question about Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 15.6" Laptop Computer - Dark Metal Gray; Intel Core i7-3610QM; 6GB DDR3-1600 RAM; 750GB 5,400RPM Hard Drive; 15.6" HD LED-backlight Display; DVDRW Drive; 6-in-1 Memory Card Reader; NVIDIA GeForce GTX660M; 10/100/1000 Network; 802.11b/g/n
The easiest way to reset the bios for this machine is to turn the laptop over and remove the RAM. Once the RAM is out of the machine, plug it in and power it up, you should hear some beeping. If you hear the beeping then you have successfully flashed the BIOs. Plug the RAM back in and turn the computer back on, you'll be right to go =)

I appears that a installation of Ubuntu may have failed. If this is the case this needs to be re-posted in a different area. If this is not what happened then to reset the BIOS. This procedure is based on the notebook booting the system as it should (e.g. you hear the sound of the operatng system boot). First press F2 on startup to get in the BIOS. Now do the following key presses to do a factory reset of the BIOS: left, 4x down, 4x , press the enter key. Now the system shuts down. Reboot it and there should me no blank screen anymore. If there is further problems please post them here. Hope that this helps.

I ran into the same problem when installing Windows XP SP2. This is what you do.. 1. Go into the BIOS (F1 during startup). 2. Go to the SATA menu. 3. Change the setting to compatiablty. You should be able to install the operation now. After the installtion of the base os, you should go to lenovo website to download the drivers and follow the instructions there.

I think your system has crashed so you need to do fresh operating system installation.You have mentioned that there is no partitions, it is sign of system's crash.

SOURCE: Unable to open BIOS Setup
Are you trying to change the boot up drives so that the CD boots up first so you can do a repair or reinstall Windows?
You can select from a list of bootable devices by pressing F12

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..
