Send for repair?

2011-10-16, 10:56 AM

I am currently having two problems with my G570 notebook. 

First is a problem with latency sound/video keeps skipping.

And now the machine wont boot up. When turned on a screen appears saying there is "No bootable device".

I am wondering how I can send the machine off to be repaired under the warranty. I like in  Northern Ireland (UK)

You buy G570 with windows on board? Try press one recovery button...it's look like no system on HDD or HDD is damaged. If button not help's try ubuntu live, and watch if HDD is present in system.

Go to bios (F2)->Boot->Make Your HDD first (use F5,F6. Your disk name is probably Hitachi...)->Exit->Exit Saving Changes.

 

If You want a try ubuntu use ubuntu .iso image and "unetbootin", in bios, in boot menu your's usb drive must be in first position. More in google.

 

If you have DVD with windows and You want install Microsoft OS, first in boot menu must be DVD Drive.

1. LOOK HERE

3. Hitachi it's HDD. If you can't see hard drive call to lenovo support. (probably hdd is dead).
