Hi lightning_ha,

Based on your situation, I suggest trying the following steps:

1. Turn on the system then insert the recovery disk inside the ODD.

2. Now turn off the computer while recovery disk is inside.

3. Turn on the computer, the moment you press the power button, immediately tap the F12 key and press it continuously.

4. Now you have the boot option. Select CD/DVD/ODD by pressing enter then continuously tap it until you see the Windows is loading a file.

5. Wait until it goes 100%.

6. Now it will ask you on what partition you will put the operating system. Just select the partition that has a large capacity or size.

7. Just wait until it completes the whole installation.

8. Restart the computer.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

Factory reset my lenovo y510 when forgotwindows password

If its running Windows 8 the login might be linked to a microsoft account. from another computer login or reset your password to that account and try logging back into the laptop (as long as it has an active internet connection) If its windows 7 or older you might need to find a Live repair disk (ERD or Hiron's boot cd or something along those lines that has a password recovery tool incorperated)

Worst case you would need the windows installation disk or restore disks that came with the laptop

My computer wont go into windows, all the farther it goes is the resuming windows screen, how do i reboot from the 2 disks that i have?

Load your first recovery disk, when the system is going through BIOS, press F9 on your keyboard, this should bring up the boot menu. Select Boot from CD Rom and it should start going through the recovery.

When i am formating my laptop it show me setup did not find any hard disk... i am using windows 7 and i want to install xp but this problem is occur so please give me solution .... thnx

Hi. Are you using the Recovery disk from Lenovo or is it another Windows installer. Using oher Cd's other Lenovo Recovery disk will not work. Your computer's motherboard is locked in using lenovo's recovery disk that came with the system. if you want your system back and running. You must use lenovo recovery disk.

Starting Windows and Keyboard Problems

- that is why you are getting "Windows Boot Manager" is because your Operating System was already corrupted so if you have Recovery Disk you need to do clean install (re-installing OS again)

- you can also try to do One Key Recovery by powering off the computer then press the button sitting beside of the power (have a curve u)then you should be getting windows loading files but if not you should call Lenovo to ask Recovery Disk

- regarding your keyboard you need to contact Lenovo as well in order for them to replace your keyboard..just call 1-877-453-6686

Computer keeps locking/freezing after 10 mins of booting up.

since you already use one key recovery, means its no longer a software issue, either ram or video card is the problem, might need to send to service center of lenovo.

My optiarc dvd rw ad-7560A not reading dvds anymore. It only reads cds.

Try opening the dvd software prior to inserting the disk. Did you try a DVD that you see will work in another DVD player?
