Hi
My Lenovo G580 laptop won't start up. When I turn it on using the power button it goes straight to boot menu/app menu. There are various options there to choose from, but whichever one I choose, it keeps going back to boot menu. I've tried using the novo button, but it still doesn't work. Whatever I choose from the novo button screen, except "BIOS setup", keeps taking me back to the boot menu. My laptop won't start up, and it's really frustrating! Please help?!

Thanks

Try pressing F11 as the computer boots up.

This should let you access the Recovery Partition on your system.

If it is successful do not proceed, just let me know as completing a System Recovery will format your drive and return it to factory conditions (and erase all of your personal data).

Same story. It takes me back to boot menu. I can't do anything

I have tried in vain to find out another possible hotkey to access the Recovery Partition on your Lenovo computer.

The next step I can advise for you to try would be to contact Lenovo support and ask them how to access your Recovery Partition.

If you are successful, then you know you have a way to restore your computer to factory condition. At which time, your concern (I assume) would become saving your personal data before performing the System Recovery. That is where I will be able to help you further.

The Novo button--which Lakunka already tried--is Lenovo's way to get to the Recovery partition (when things are working right).

Ah, I was not aware of that. Thank you. (y)

In that case the harddrive may have died, or the Recovery Partition was corrupted or deleted.

Lakunka, when you access the BIOS, is the harddrive detected?
