Extreme problem Lenovo B590

2013-11-03, 21:38 PM

Hello! I have NO CLUE where to place my post... but it probably regards to all Lenovo series.

 

 

My girlfriend bought herself a Lenovo notebook (I've never had anything to deal with 'em). It's B590 without system. I've installed windows 7 on it and after 30 days it started sayin' that this version isn't genuine or something. So I used windows 7 loader (I'm a bad pirate...) and basically laptop totally started to load further than bios... there's not even Lenovo LOGO loading... just going straight to a question about booting device. I've tried putting windows in CD and still it doesn't work when I pick CDrom option booting. So the question would be - how can I turn on the computer? My girlfriend doesn't want to lose any files so I'd kinda love to simply get to the booting moment and reinstall windows or something. Any ideas? What's funny is the fact that I did exactly the same thing on my DELL laptop and it works like a charm.

Hi Harus3ko,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

I’m sorry to inform you that installing the Non-Genuine OS (Operating System) has caused the issue in the computer as the secure boot option is enabled in the BIOS. I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power and BIOS reset. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue:

 

  1. Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
  2. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
  3. If the issue persists even after performing Flee Power then resetting BIOS to its defaults should resolve the issue
  4. Now access the BIOS menu press F1 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up.
  5. Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on “F9” Key and select YES.
  6. Now Click on “F10” Key to safe the changes that are done in BIOS, restart the computer and check if the issue is resolved.

Hope this helps!!!

 

Do post us back for further queries.

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Hello Shiv_k

 

 

Thank you for your answer. Unfortunately I did all the things as you said and I'm still in the same point, here's photo of what happens straight after I turn on the computer:

Hi harus3ko

 

Looking at the picture it seems your laptop is set to boot from DVD, Try inserting the DVD in the drive, Shut down the laptop then reboot, You (hopefully) should be asked to press any key to boot from CD/DVD.

 

That should start the win7 install process, I am sure there is a option to repair windows.

 

Worth a try...

 

Hope that solves your problem.

 

Catt

That was the first thing I've done to be honest. With no effect. When I put CD in and chose an option it simply does nothing other than rolling the cd for a second and going back to the same screen.

Hi Harus3ko,

 

I’m sorry to hear that the issue persists even after performing the above troubleshooting steps in the computer; I suggest you to change the SATA mode from AHCI to IDE, below is the steps to make the changes in BIOS:

 

  • To access the BIOS menu press F1 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up.
  • Then under Device>ATA Drives Setup>Enable-SATA Controller>Configure SATA as>IDE.
  • Now press “F10” and YES to Save and Exit the changes made in BIOS.
  • Please check if the Windows disc is detected and installation process starts.

Do post us back if the issue still persists.

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

There are no other options than AHCI and COMPATIBILITY. I chose compatibility and unfortunately nothing changed... I'm truly amazed by how is it possible to resolve this problem. Thank you for trying... any other ideas?

That what I was afraid of... it's strange that a program that worked perfectly on my PC made hardware problem on my girlfriend's one. Well, I'll need to leave the laptop in some Notebook repair shops. Thank you for your time!
