My g580 ran out of battery while using it, and now it gets stuck on the lenovo logo. I tried a different hard drive which changed nothing, I've tested both hard drives on a different computer and they both work.
However when I boot the laptop with no harddrive it will get past the logo go to a screen saying something about an unplugged cable then reset and get stuck on a blank screen.
If I plug in my windows recovery usb drive( and no harddrive) the the machine will boot normally and go to the windows installation screen.
So any ideas on why a working harddrive would stop the system from booting?
Also I've tried the whole taking out the battery unplugging it holding down the power key and then plugging it back in thing, did nothing.

Not sure how that would be different than the usb stick. Either way is pointless without the harddrive and using a harddrive gets me stuck on the logo.
