Computers always boot from the hard drive.
The Bios on the mother board have a routine that tell it to boot from the Hard Drive, or USB in the BIOs setup.
to look at the BIOS setup, when you turn it on keep pressing the <ctrl><alt><del> keys on your key board, this should let you go into BIOs setup. there you can check which device it the first boot, second boot and third boot.
If your hard disk the boot, it is probably crashed, you will have to take it in to be repaired, and you might need a new hard disk.
in which case the repair shop will have to put in a new hard disk, format it as bootable, then reload the operating system, and any software you might have been using, so take into the shop all cd software disks with the computer to the shop so they can reload all your stuff. If there were any files you had on the disk, they may or maynot be recovered.

Good Luck...

Lenovo R400 Error 0210 stuck key 5b


Stuck key error means that one or more keys on the keyboard are stuck. It's possible that a liquid spill can also cause one or more keys to electrically "short" causing the error. Inspect the keyboard and check if any keys are mechanically stuck.
If you're mechanically handy you can remove the keyboard, inspect any chances of damage or corrosion. Plug it back and see if error is still occurring.
Reset BIOS to default settings. Perform Flee Power - remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and turn ON the computer.

Hi, The screen flickers at the taskbar end every 2 second. Lenovo R400, 7443-TGA. This my second time using the lenovo thinkpad product with the same problem. Why lenovo screen always problem. I never.....


Hi techsyss,

I see that you are having issue with your taskbar flickering as you mentioned in the notes.


I would be more than glad to assist you regarding your concern.

>Try to reinstall your Video Drivers on the machine or poassibly update the Video drivers.

>Try chagning the resoltion on your system try setting it to a resolution that is lower than what you actually have and see if the flickering will still be occuring.

>Also try to boot into the BIOS of the machine to see if the Flickering occurs in BIOS as well, to boot into BIOS upon powering the machine keep on tapping F1 till you get a blue screen saying phoenix BIOS as long as the word BIOS is there you are in the right page. just check if the flickering happens there, if it does then the issue is not software but most likely hardware it can be the LCD itself or the Cable conenction of the LCD to the Video on the motherboard.

>if the flickering is present in BIOS most likely you will need to have the system serviced for proper repairs and diagnostics.


I hope this helps.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

I am trying to find the reset button on the Thinkpad R400, can you help me.


Laptops do not have a reset button, just a power button which you have to hold down until the laptop turns off and then press it one more time to turn it back on.
