Lenovo 3000n100 goes to rescue and recovery 4 on start up

I have a lenovo 3000 n100 laptop. After a year, almost exactly, it will only go to the rescue and recovery 4 screen on start up. It starts with a screen asking if you would like to fix the problem or start windows normally but either way takes you to rescue and recovery 4 which only goes as far as picking a language. I ordered the recovery disks and it does not read them, the boot order is correct with the dvd drive first. It will be a black screen while the light blinks on the dvd drive then it goes back to the same screens for start up before the disk was ever used. I used a docking station to use another computer to get my files off of the hard drive but the other computer says the drive needs to be formatted. Does this mean my hard drive is bad and thats why it cant read the recovery disks. If not how can I get the disks to work. This was one of two identical computers bought and given to me and my sister. Both have the same problem that started a year after the computer was first used (couple months difference) I can not find a way to do diagnostics either. If I need a new hard drive is there one better than the other. Vista is the operating system. Has anyone else had this problem.

If the drive was bad, it SHOULD give an error message to that fact. You have 2 doing the same thing. I do NOT believe in coincidence. I would first try a new hard drive. If that works, you have to determine the value of the data on the old drive(s). A data recovery service may be your only refuge, albeit, expensive.
If a new drive does not work, I would contact Lenovo. If you have 2 out of 2 bad, unless you use your laptop as a car jack to change tires, they must have seen this problem before. They may even offer to repair at no charge even though the systems are out of warranty.
I hope that helps.

Rescue and Recovery 4 52 by Lenovo

I have never been a fan of automated back up systems, and well, as far as I know these systems never back up software in that process, just the Operating system and the personal files.
I always keep important files on a external drive, or USB

Turn on your computer. Watch the display carefully while your PC starts. While the initial screen ( LENOVO ) is displayed, press the Lenovo Care button. The Rescue and Recovery workspace opens.

Click Restore your system > Restore my hard drive to the original factory state > follow the instructions on the screen.

If Rescue and Recovery did not launch, the motherboard may need replacing.

Need to install start up disc (3) or do system rescue and recovery


Just download "Hiren's Boot CD", here is the download link

http://hirens.longcomputerservices.com/Hirens.BootCD.10.1.zip

Download the file and extract it with winzip or Winrar.
Burn the ISO image and boot the system using "Hiren's Boot CD" (Set the BIos to Boot from CD-ROM).

You can now easily backup your important data to a USB external Hard drive or to a Network location or do a rescue or even do a repair, or take the drive image too.


That's it.

Black blank screen Lenovo 3000 N100


You say the laptop all of a sudden flashed off.

How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.

Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.

RESTORING FACTORY CONTENTS.


That is because someone has either removed, formatted or overwritten the partition on which the recovery software was stored. You'll need to find CDs of the software you want, starting with the OS, and install that way.
