Lenovo G530 - Restore and Recovery issues

2011-12-15, 23:54 PM

Hi,

 

I seem to be having a couple issues with my laptop. This morning I was greeted with a reset page: A default W7 desktop background, with only program icons on the screen. I was unable to access any of my files. I then performed a system restore to just the other day (Dec. 13). I received my login screen just fine, but was met with a blank screen and cursor. So I restarted. I reached the 'Starting Windows' text and animation, and found my login screen had also become a blank screen with a cursor.

 

My computer came with Vista, and I installed Windows 7. I have gone to the BIOS, but that hasn't helped, and when I press the Lenovo Care Button, I only receive the options to enter the BIOS, and boot from a different device (of which I have none, including any recovery disks, which my computer did not come with). There is no restore option.

 

Thank you very much!

Binni

I can access the page with options, but no matter which option I choose, it gives me a blank screen with a cursor.
