That commonly happens when something a key is stuck. as you are having an issue with two keys the problem is likely dirt or moisture in the keyboard itself. as the f10 and 0 keys are near eachother and also near the edge of the keyboard I am leaning towards something being in the membraine of the keyboard itself. Laptop keyboards tend to be spot welded and or glued making them impossable to take apart and clean properly. if you cant get it cleaned with compressed air you would be best to find a replacement keyboard from the original manufacturer or an otherwise broken laptop from ebay.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart then
once you have your computer running try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this should schedule when you restart then defragment your hard drive
hope this helps

Welcome to Fixya

Lenovo is not putting any password especially with the BIOS bacause this can be customized by the user. If you purchased this to a retail store then you need to contact them regarding this issue. If you purchased the computer via Lenovo website then you need to contact our support number 1-877-453-6686 then press option 2.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I can not find the icon in the start menu to initiate the system recovery option


Hi,

If it is windows xp then the recovery option will be under pc help and tools ,this you can get it by clicking on start ???all programs ???pc help and tools.However if you are not able to find this option then simply turn the computer off and then disconnect all the external devices along with the internet cable and then as soon as you turn the computer on tap the f10 key repeatedly and then when you get the recovery page click on ok .Once you get the page where it has the advance option click on it and then select destructive recovery and then click next the recovery will start .

If you have windows vista then go to start and in the search bar type recovery manager and then click on it to start the recovery else instead of the f10 key tap the f11 key and then follow the same instruction as for the XP OPERATING SYSTEM.

Hope this helps you ,all the best

Hi there.
If F11 is not workings as it sometimes does, then pop the recovery DVD in the drive and try hitting F12 as the computer starts up so you can change the boot order without going into the bios.
If you do not have this option the enter the bios by hitting F2 as it starts up, once in the bios look for the boot order and change it to CD/DVD as the first boot device, hit F10 to save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and you should be able to boot from the recovery disk and restore the PC to factory condition.
Please post back if you need anymore assistance.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hp mini wont start


i had a similar problem. this made my netbook start again. turn off your netbook and then remove the battery. then (with the battery still out) slide the power switch into the on-position and hold it there for a minute. then reinsert the battery and turn on your netbook. as soon as it turns on, keep repeatedly pressing the F10 key till you see your screen light up. then login normally and go to the hp site and download the driver for your netbook. i think its under BIOS? hope this helped. sorry if it didnt...

Type in password get message access denied or incorrect passwork and reboots


I was given an old computer years ago that was password protected I was told to pull the battery out for 10 sec. then reinstall it. It cleared the pass word protection. Note: pull the power cord push the start button to drain any power from the system, ground your self to protect the computer of any static electricity first.
