Y570 Boot problems

I've had my Ideapad for about a week and got an error trying to start up this morning. 

 

Windows failed to start. A recent harware or software change might be the cause.

 

Status: 0xc000000f

 

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inacessable. 

 

I tried to get to the bios menu to make sure it was set to boot from cd first so i could try the recovery disk I made. I know the disk works on my other laptop. I get into a menu during startup where I can select Windows 7 or Tools: Windows Memory Diagnostic. Both options lead me to the same error code again.

 

Any Ideas how I can fix this? It doesnt seem like I can't get into anything. I Havent even move my laptop from the desk since i got it.

Hi dangeresque49

 

If I am not wrong, the hard drive on your IdeaPad could be failing. I would suggest you contact Tech Support to look into this.

 

Have a nice day! :smileytongue::smileyhappy::smileyvery-happy:

Re: Y570 Boot problems

That really sucks. I have never had any part of a laptop fail in a week, so I was skeptical to assume it was a hardware failure. It makes me wonder how much I can trust lenovo refurbs.

That would depend on luck also. This would happens even with other manufacturer regardless of first hand or refurbished product.
