Question about Lenovo IdeaCentre Q150 40815AU Intel ATOM D410 ( 166GHz 800MHz 512KB )
This Atom computer doesn't boot up and I tried F key to get into CMOS setting, nothing pops up. when you turn on the power, orange light comes on for 2 seconds and then turned itself off.

What about removing the hard drive from the laptop and put it into sata box, to be USB external drive.
And then get out your important data, and format the hard disk.
and try again to boot???
If it doesn't work , try to replace the memory it might be the problem with the memory.

Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

if your sure the screen is not the problem then unfortunatly your looking at a motherboard issue and this proves sort of costly sometimes i know its a real pain but you can have someone repair it for you or simply buy another motherboard and have it installed im sorry but that is all you can do at this point! i hope this helps!

Welcome to Fixya
Make sure first that there are no devices plug in to the usb when you boot up the computer. Check if the harddrive is being detected by the computer. Press F2 to go to BIOS menu and see if the computer can detect you harddrive. It should be under the main menu and will say below harddrive. It should give you infromation of the harddrive. If there is no information of the harddrive then the problem there is the harddrive already.
Please reply to this email for any update.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Watch for the status message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button" to appear on the screen. The only time you have the ability to access your BIOS is while this message is on your monitor. If this message disappears, you will have to restart your T60 and try again.
Press the "ThinkVantage" button on your T60. From the list of options that appears, select "Start setup utility." You will be prompted to enter your BIOS password. Type "merlin" and hit "Enter" to bypass the password prompt using your backdoor password and enter your main BIOS utility.
Select "Security." In this window, select "Set Password." Type the new password you want to use for your BIOS. Press "Enter" to finish resetting your T60 BIOS password.
