Re: G50-80 stuck on Lenovo logo.

It may be that the hard drive is having bad sectors, or has failed. Can you grab a Linux DVD and boot from it? If so you may be able to run a few tests on the hard drive, or see that it has failed.

If under warranty, you can contact support to have the drive replaced, or if not under warranty - purchase the same or larger hard disk and install it yourself.

If a new hard disk drive is installed, then you will need recovery media (DVD) set to restore factory software. If you do not have recovery disks you can purchase them from Lenovo Support, or install an OS of your choosing from Retail DVD.

Good luck.
