Startup Problem with Lenovo 3000 N200 with Vista


You would need to reinstall Vista together with the device drivers and programs to get a laptop functioning again.
You need to backup your data before you reinstall Vista but since you cannot boot up and get into Windows, you need to remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug it into a working computer's USB port. This computer should see this hard drive as an external hard drive (provided the hard drive is OK). You can now see the various folders and files, copy your data files to a USB memory stick or burn them to a CD.
Insert the hard drive back into your laptop and then install Vista.

There are several ways you can check if you have a working hard drive in your laptop.

1. Get into the BIOS configuration of your laptop, you may be able to see your laptop's configuration, and maybe even see your hard disk. This means your computer has been configured to work with the hard disk, but does not mean the hard disk is OK

2. If your laptop has a floppy disk attached then you can use a boot floppy disk and boot up in DOS. Then you can then run FDISK and then display the hard disk. If FDISK does not detect a hard disk the it is most likely dead.

3. If you can get access to a USB hard drive adapter cable or an IDE adapter cable that you can connect to a working computer's secondary IDE controller. THEN
Remove your laptop drive and connect and connect it to the USB adaptor or an IDE cable, (make sure you connect the drive correctly to the connector) then connect it to a working computer.
If you use an USB adapter, when you connect it to a working compute with XP or Vista operating system, and if the hard drive is OK then you will see the contents of the laptop hard drive.
If you connect the IDE cable to the secondary contriller and then boot up the working computer with XP or Vista operating system, if the laptop drive is OK you should see the contents of the laptop hard drive.
If you don't see the hard drive, then most likelt it is dead.
