Hello Mitchiko

This error message is often the result of corruption on your hard disk. Quite likely including the MBR.

This could indicate your hard disk is failing or just that there was a glitch in your system that caused your MBR to be over-written or corrupted. In any event, w/ an error like this, you're going to need to ...
(01) Test your hard disk to make sure it's OK
(02) Attempt to restore your MBR

There are some great (free) MBR tools HERE.

There's a nice article HERE on "How to Repair your MBR". The author does a nice job of explaining what the MBR is and how to repair it.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have more questions, etc. on this topic.

Thank you
BJ

SOURCE: disk read error occured

If not give it a go and do a repair if needed again!

1- You may have a corrupt MBR (master boot record)!! You will need to reformat and do Fdisk /mbr to delete the master boot record!! Save all data first as this will not allow you to access any of your data as all file location addresses are located in the MBR!!

2 - Your harddrive may have a bad sector get a zerofill tool(low level formatting tool)!! This will rewrite you HD's sectors putting them back to factory spec's!! Maxtors is called Maxblast you can get it from thier site!!

3- or it could be a defective drive, but most read errors are due ot corrupt MBR or a bad sector!!

SOURCE: when starting my Lenovo Think Pad laptop T400

Hi

Thank you for your query

Please try the following

1) Hook up a external keyoard to the USB/PS2 prot and see what happens

2) Press all the keys several times when the laptop is switched off to ensure that the keys are not stuck i.e. with debris etc etc

if this fails it would seem you have a bad keyboard, and would be looking at getting replaced

Please leave feedback/vote if my answer was helpful

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.

Re: R400 stuck at ThinkPad screen wont boot


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...
