Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems

motherboard and a Hard Drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail.

Check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in.

Check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat

Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.


Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to Fixya.

Try booting in BIOS mode by tapping on 'DEL' or 'F1' key as soon as you turn the computer on (while seeing the LENOVO screen). When in BIOS, you can eject the disc.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Do a manual file search for them first. You can also try a program called Recuva that recovers deleted files.

Lenovo... | Answered on Nov 04, 2016

There is free software available for retrieving deleted items. Important thing is to not add anything to your computer hard drive so as to prevent it from writing over the alleged deleted file(s).

Verify the driver is installed for the touch screen. Go into the device manager to verify the driver.

Lenovo... | Answered on Jun 16, 2015

Verify all the cables are seated. You may also have a problem with your graphics hardware or drivers. If you get the BIOS screen typically signified by the manufacturer logo, press F8 to enter safe mode. If that works then it is most likely a driver issue.

That sounds like a BIOS password. I've never had any luck getting around those.. supposed tricks involving pulling the battery .. or maybe there's a what's called a "dip switch" to reset the bios on it..

Lenovo... | Answered on Jan 07, 2015

Two possibilities: your pc's resolution is not high enough (which means you need to go to the desktop, right click anywhere in the blank area, select screen resolution, and change it to something higher) or, your browser is "zoomed". Hit ALT (the alt key) + V (for view) go to Zoom and lower the zoom factor.

I suspect the second is the problem as it's easy to zoom (ctrl+ and ctrl- will do it too).

WHERE DO I GET MY PUK CODE? The PUK code is unique to your SIM card, so you can only get this from your mobile network.Sometimes they will give you this when you first get the SIM card, but not all networks do this. If you cannot find it, give your mobile network a call and they will be able to give you the PUK code after you have answered some security questions
