Go to the BIOS and cancel it. The code was caused by tampering with the laptop.

Oddly, I did find a page offering recovery discs for such a system. Go figure you can find recovery discs but no manuals. You might try Lenovo support and see what they say. Sorry.

I would remove the corrupt drive and connect via USB to another computer running Win7. See if the computer sees the drive. If it does, put it back in the laptop and try booting again. If not, go to Control Panel, disc management and create a drive letter. Doesn't matter what it is. It should then boot OK. If not, replace the drive.

The port replicator needs to have the drivers installed in order for it to work properly. If this was not done, you will need to do it. Windows does not have the correct drivers for it.

Do not go to any other web site other than the official Lenovo.com website to obtain the correct drivers. You never know what drivers you are getting from other sources. You have been warned.

In Windows OS, cut & paste is commonly done with a right click of the finger pad as one would use a mouse. There are shortcut key strokes, but this always works and you'll never forget it. Control C and Control P are the short cuts.

Near the power button there is a smaller button. Instead of power press this button and a menu will appear. You just have to choose BIOS Setup or Boot menu if you just want to change the boot order.

here are just a few ideas, it is just your email, & you can get about the world wide web right? If I'm picking up what what your laying down? we will try this, now I can give you a complicated back end of the system directions some how I think it's just going to make things worse! So lets try the "point & shoot " fix first! In the lower description will be a link to "gizmos freeware reviews" it's the go to place for the good stuff! My first recommendation is "CCleaner" make sure your browser is closed when you run this , then "Toolwiz" they are both "point & shoot" 100% freeware & 100% safe! these will fix any registry errors, get rid of any old junk that's clogging your system! or "a laxative apps" is what I have crowned them! One last thing! if you log into "Facebook"? if you don't know what a good spyware application is & how it is one of the most crucial security applications "to run on your system" then I will include that link too!, one of the best spyware apps out there, will make all the deference in the word!! it is called "SUPERAntispyware" Facebook has been over run with parasitic infection called "CLICK JACKING!" so when I here the words "I can not log on to my account" it is the first sign that your system is infected!

There are two troubleshooting tips for this:
  • try changing the battery. Sometimes the battery can be bad, not keeping a charge long enough to allow the computer to power on.
  • Try a new power cord. First thing is, there can be a short that intermittently causes the computer to show as charging, but it stops actually charging after letting go of the plug. Second, the cord is going bad and not allowing a full charge to go through.
