Sounds like your hard drive crashed. Try this to see if it helps. Please rate me as a fixya if this helps.
What make of hard drive is in it?
Figure out what brand hard drive it is first. Then go to the website of the manufacturer.
While you are on the site look for software for hard drive repair. It could be listed in many ways. Download the windows version if you have another computer to test this in. If you do not have another computer to test this in you will have to use the Dos version. The instructions will come with the siftware.
Then you will go through these steps.
Do you have another computer that you can use to check the hard drive? If you have another computer or access to another computer you can download a hard drive utility that can diagnose and possible repair the hard drive. Is it a SATA hard drive? If it is a SATA hard drive you can plug it directly into another computer that has a SATA cable. If it is not SATA you will need to buy a converter so that you can hook it up to the other computer. This will be an external slim hard drive enclosure. A desktop hard drive can be put in another desktop and used as a slave drive. Just make sure that you look at the back of the Hard Drive and make put the jumper on the slave pins. Then you can run the test through the other computer to test the Hard Drive. The test will let you know if the Hard Drive is bad or not. If you can see your files on the drive you might want to back them up before you start the test. If it comes back as good go to the next step.

FIX BOOT
You can boot it up with the recovery CD and run through it as if you were doing a setup and then when the second repaircomes up..... hit repair. This should repair any problem with the operating system. If you want to try the simple way... use the first repair that comes up. When the screen comes up with a blinking curser hit the number 1 then Enter........ When it ask you for a password hit enter. There should not be a password unless someone has put one in it. If there is a password it should be your master password.
Then type fixmbr and hit enter. This will fix your master boot record. If that does not work use the second repair. Sounds complicated but it is not.

CDROM PROBLEMS / Hard Drive Problems

Check your IDE cable inside that plugs into it. This will be the wide cable. Does it light up? Your power supply could be going bad. Unplug them one at a time and see if they work. Look at the jumpers and make sure the last one on the cable is on Master and the other one is slave. Sounds like a bad cable or connection if you swap the cable and see if it works.

When ever i plug my cd rom it has a crashing sound then when the os booting need to start the cd rom is not connected anymore how can i fix this?


at boot go into the bios system, under "advanced settings" there should be a hard drives area, make sure that your CD drive is correctly displayed in the BIOS. looking to see if its correctly named with no funky characters.

it should also display the CDROM name during the "boot time diagnostic screen" if that is enabled in the bios. (its the quick flash of a screen just before the hard drive boots and throws a windows splash screen).

if the bios doesnt pass the CDROM as attached, windows doesnt know its there.

if the BIOS passes all the correct info then go into the control panel under windows and into the device manager (cant find it hit? F1 and type "device manager") and look under the drives section to see if there is any issues with the deivce. this is also the place you would use if you decide to change drivers.

Laptop not working


I need to know what you mean by Blue screen. Do you get a blue desktop screen, or, do you get the blue screen crash window with technical information on it. I will assume you mean the blue screen crash window.
It sounds like a corrupted program bank, or you could have a faulty hard disk, or a memory stick that has gone bad, or perhaps the processor or GPU has failed. without knowing what is on this "blue screen" i can only offer suggestions.
Contact Lenovo and see if they provide diagnostics on this computer. (memory and hdd on board tests, etc). A Diagnostic would test your hardware and ram and CPU and GPU outside of the windows OS. If your ram passes the test, and your CPU passes and your hard drive passes and video/GPU passes the diagnostics, then it is not a physical/hardware issue. If you pass diags, you have a corrupt driver or BIOS setting.
Just to make sure its NOT a bios setting, enter your BIOS and check your raid/sata configuration. 99% of the planet would have this option set to "LEGACY" or to "IDE/EIDE" mode or any mode that is NOT AHCI, because AHCI would require a 3rd party windows driver.
If your hardware fails a diagnostic, you will need to replace the faulty part. If your hardware passes diagnostics, then it is a software issue. Again without knowing more abou the screen you describe, I can only assume and speculate. But, I would make sure my BIOS Sata settings are set for legacy and eide mode, as well as making sure the drives are enabled in bios.

Can't get past bios post


If you can't even pass the POST your only option is attempt to flash the BIOS. Go to your motherboard manufacturer's website to find updated BIOS and instructions for your particular board.

BIOS Crash


ASUS will probably not honor the warranty in this situation. And even though the computer worked for a short time after the mods there is a legit possibility that the mods did cause the computer to eventually fail (and during a BIOS Update.) Sorry man. It looks like you bricked your system from that last BIOS update. Your only chance is to remove the EEPROM from the motherboard and replace it with one that has the correct firmware flashed.

Good luck.

Flash bios crash


The only 2 way to fix it is to replace the motherboard or:

Take the computer apart by removing all visible screws. And slowly and carefully removing all parts. Start with screws under keyboard on bottom of chassis. After you remove the keyboard you will see more of a hint to get the laptop apart. Go to tomshardware.com and search the site for how-to on disassembling a laptop. After you get it open you should look for your bios chip , the picture is attached here. If it is socketed you can get the numbers 
and do an
 internet search or call acer and get one from the manufacturer.
