Hi there, Joelfelix


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


1- Turn off the laptop >> unplug the charger >> Remove the battery >> Hold the power button for 20 seconds.

2- Connect the charger only >> Hold the power button for 10 seconds.

3- Turn on the laptop and access the BIOS >> Press FN+F9 to reset >> yes, after that press FN+F10 to save and exit.

4.Reseat (disconnect and reconnect) the Hard Drive connections (both SATA and power connectors) and check if the computer boots.
