Hi.

I think the boot order on the laptop has been changed and the laptop is trying to boot from the LAN (NIC/Ethernet) port.

To change the boot order you need to access the BIOS. On older IBM laptops (and this is dependant on the model) the BIOS Utility is entered by holding F2 while the ThinkPad logo is displayed after power on, or, with the unit powered off, hold the F1 key and power the unit on. Keep F1 held down until Easy setup appear. The key is either F1 or F2.

On other models there is a blue Access IBM button when the message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" is displayed to enter the ThinkVantage Productivity Center, then select Start setup utility to open the BIOS Setup Utility.

once in the BIOS look for the boot order of the computer and change the boot order to the HDD (hard disk drive). There will be instructions on the screen on how to change the boot order. Save the changes and restart the laptop. Hopefully it will now boot into the hard drive and load the operating system.

Hope this helps!!!




Regards.

SOURCE: I brought the computter about month ago.. and now its appears ::

This is a common problem but there may be more than one fix

The easiest is to go to your bios and set the boot device order.

It is quite conceivable that it is set to try and boot from network first

You should select HARD DRIVE or CD DRIVE as you first option and then reverse that order for your second boot device

change your boot priority. press power button then keep on tapping F1 key until your reached to setup utility. go to boot menu and set your boot priority 1 to your HDD. if compute wasnt able to detect your HDD . then there is a problem wth your HDD, you need to call you manufacturer for HDD replacement if unit is still under warranty

Hi. I think the problem on this one is its either your Harddrive has already failed or your Optical Drive has a cd inside, so double check your Optical drive if there is a disc inside it. If not this issue is also with the operating system, you can try to restore your system by pressing the One Key recovery(OKR) button found beside the power button which has a logo of an arching arrow, but remember to plugin first the ac adapter on your laptop before pressing the One Key Recovery Button and also do not press the power button to turn on your computer because when you press the OKR button it will automatically turn on your computer and proceed with the recovery process. When it gives you some option you should choose One Key Recovery and then choose System Recovery, then factory default and from there it will guide you to the whole process of recovering your machine. If this doesnt fix the issue you could also try using the Recovery disc to restore your sytem t its original settings just like the OKR. Lastly you can contact the tech support dept. of Lenovo, they are open 24/7 and this the number to contact:
US/Canada: Available 24/7 1-877-4LENOVO (1-877-453-6686)
Australia: Available 24/7 1300-557-073
New Zealand: 9am-9pm Mon-Fri 0800-446-833. Hope this helps

Your hard disk in all likelihood is just a single partitioned hard drive so it gives c and d. From your description, it probably need replacing, just replace the harddrive and buy a usb cd/dvd drive

No audio output


For my Thinkpad, when I bought it used it had the same problem. I went to Lenovo's website and found my Laptop from the list. Then I choose a "System Update" file, downloaded it and it told me all the drivers were wrong from the video to the sound card. I downloaded all the files and installed them and presto every driver was perfect. During the install you will have to note all the old versions as they will have to be uninstalled either first or during. IBM Thinkpads are bullet proof and 100% restore-able to factory settings with their drivers from IBM (or LENOVO now)....do not get them from anywhere else. The person that sold me the laptop told me the laptop worked bad, so he gave it tom me cheap..and now 3 years later, its still running perfect. Hope this helps.
