lenovo g585 won't boot

2017-09-17, 20:43 PM

I'm troubleshooting a lenovo g585. 


It won't boot.  

  • I've tried removing the power, battery, and holding the power button.
  • The battery is charging.  The light was initially flashing red, it's gone white, and it seems to have charge even after the cable is pulled.
  • When the power button is pressed, power and battery are white.
    • The fan turns on.
    • It tries to access the optical drive.
    • No bios, no splash, screen stays black.
    • After a few seconds power light turns off, battery light blinks, and I'm back to square one.
  • I've pulled the drive and attached it to an external drive unit.  Drive spins up fine, is fully accessible, and no sign of any errors or issues.


Do you guys have any ideas?

Hello Juridain


Thank you for using the Lenovo forum


Have you tried using the novo button on the unit, If the device is powering up and not bookting it may be the OS on the unit. Trying doing a factory reset on the unit as if this is an OS issue that should solve it.
