Turn off the computer, then use the small button that is on the right side of the power button. That little button is the "Novo" button that will put the computer into a boot up screen that should allow you to enter bios.

Once in bios, check for and adjust settings as needed.

Also - if you need to format and install an OS to the new hard disk drive, to return to "factory" condition, you will need recovery disks, or a retail version of Windows.

Good luck.

If you are getting the blue backed screen of options that you show in pictures, then look at the top and go to applications and see what it is listing.

Post back with updates.

the listing is like as 2nd picture, but if i press enter in anyone of the list, the computer does anything... (screen off 1sec and loop back to the same blue screen) this with all options....

Re: Can't do anything - No Bios - Lenovo B590

It sounds like the HDD is not completely blank, or in "unallocated" condition. If it retains any formatting at all it may not boot correctly and lock you into this cycle.

Have you tried booting from a DVD (Linux DVD) or a USB stick with an OS on it? If not, you can find a Linux DVD - I use Linux Mint - to boot the computer and manage the hard disk drive that way.

If it will not boot from any option then it may mean that it needs to be diagnosed deeper (service bench) to be properly fixed.

Good luck

Re: Can't do anything - No Bios - Lenovo B590

thanks for the solution.

I tried it before ask, with live version of ubuntu and windows, and with other HDD with ss.oo running in another computer correctly, and the problems are 100% the same. Same blue screen with boot options... never can do other thing. For this im asking about any combination of keys for entering bios, or any to evade this boot menu...

thanks!

The "novo" button is the only way to enter BIOS from this model of notebook. If you are not able to get further than the screens you are showing in the posts, this is an issue with BIOS and may require the system to be diagnosed in a Lenovo repair center or authorized service center to bring back to working status.
