Hi
It sounds as if the hard drive in your machine has lost the ability to boot the machine up. If you can boot from a bootable CD/DVD or bootable USB drive if these options are available from the boot menu, then this confirms the hard drive has problems. Try using the "Lenovo button" just to the right of the Power button to see if you can return the computer to previous settings the worked. Be wary though as choosing the "restore to factory settings" option will lose all the data on the hard drive, and should only be used if your data is backed up properly, or in utter desperation.

Try going to Safe Mode again by hitting F8 to see if the system starts, if so, then Click on Satrt Menu and under Run type: msconfig and hit enter key. A window will pop up and you can go into the startup tab and disable the progam that might be still present. Also go to the Services tab and see if there are any services for which the publisher is not displayed and disable those. Ussually all services that are important to the OS will be Identified as a Microsoft, or any other software Company that created the program. Once your done, then close the window and re-start the system.

I have put in pattern and i forgot it how to open it


I'm going to assume your laptop is an IdeaPad, since you're referring to a touchscreen lock.

If you're running Windows (any version pretty much), you can try downloading the Ultimate Boot CD ( Ultimate Boot CD Download the UBCD ) and using the MS Windows password removal tool.

You'll have to burn the image file you download from the link above onto a CD or DVD, then boot from it on the IdeaPad(?) from which you are locked out.

Lenovo is just a different name for the same part of IBM that made the original ThinkPad notebooks, so if the UBCD doesn't work you might want to try looking for solutions in the Lenovo BIOS (accessed during POST by usually pressing F12 or Enter).

Again, assuming it's Windows you're using, you can always try the startup repair menu accessed by pressing F8 after POST.

Advanced boot options


Lenovo Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) settings allow you to quickly customize interactions between your operating system and your hardware, especially your hard drive or drives, memory and power supply.
You must get into the Lenovo BIOS before your operating system loads.
Though most users don't typically see options for entering or using the BIOS, multiple changes can be made to customize and optimize your system, such as changing your boot device order and changing the display brightness to conserve power.

Turn off your Lenovo computer.
Press the power button to start your system.
For best results, wait 30 seconds to one minute before starting your system.
This gives you a longer window in which to enter the BIOS.

Press "F1" as soon as the Thinkpad logo appears.
Depending on your Thinkpad model, you may be prompted to press either the blue "Access IBM" or the blue "ThinkAdvantage" button instead of "F1 or F2."
If this is the case, a message will appear stating "To interrupt normal startup, press (one of the listed buttons above)."
Select the "Start setup utility" to open the BIOS setup menu.
Follow the instructions provided in the BIOS setup menu to select BIOS menu sections, settings and to change options.
Next, navigate through the Bios setup pages using keybard arrow keys in order to find failsafe or optimized defaults press ENTER to select your option press F10 save to cmos and restart

I let the HP asst. Install a bios update and the install is stuck at 40%. What can I do to get out of the update?


Turn on the computer and begin hitting the "F8" key when you see the BIOS screen.

This will take you to the Safe Mode menu.


Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode," then hit "Enter" on your keyboard.

This will boot your computer in Safe Mode, a minimalist manner of operating Windows that runs only essential Windows files.


If using Windows XP in Safe Mode, click the "Start" button and then click "Run." In the box that pops up, type "msconfig" and hit "Enter."


If using Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the Windows logo in the bottom left corner of the screen, type "msconfig" in the search field and then hit "Enter."

This will open the System Configuration Utility.


In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Services" tab, check the box that reads, "Hide All Microsoft Services," click "Disable All" and then click "Apply."


In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and then click "Apply." Next, click the "Close" box.

A box will pop up that prompts you to restart your computer.

Select "Restart" and let the computer restart itself, allowing it to boot to Windows normally.


If the computer still stalls when trying to boot to Windows, restart the computer and boot to Safe Mode again.

Run your antivirus program in Safe Mode, deleting any files that are flagged as viruses, spyware or malware. Restart the computer and boot to Windows normally


hope this helps

I am trying to reinstall my operating system on my laptop and it will not read the disk. the harddrive was completely wiped out. it just keeps telling me there is no bootable device.


On most dell systems there is a "boot menu" selection on startup.

THis is normally accessed by hitting the F12 or F11 key.

You should be able to access the CD rom drive and reinstall from there.

Acer aspire t135 rebooting problem at startup constantly


I am assuming that it starts up, goes to the windows splash screen, the reboots and starts the whole process again?
Try to boot into safe mode: When you see the first screen, hit the F8 Key repeatedly, which should bring up a menu of boot options. Choose the safe mode option, and hit enter. If it boots into safe mode, I would start by running a checkdisk on the hard drive. Here's how:
Hit the Windows key and the letter R, in the prompt that comes up type in cmd and hit enter.
This should bring up the console. type in chkdsk /r/f in the prompt. It should say the drive is locked, and ask if you want to run on the next startup. Type y and enter. Then reboot. The checkdisk should run, and may be able to recover any bad sectors it finds. If it finds lots of problems, a more thorough diagnostic should probably be done, as the hard drive may be failing.
