Cannot enter BIOS or Boot

2019-04-28, 15:31 PM

Hello, I'm having trouble booting OS or entering BIOS.

When screen appears I press ESC and then ENTER when blue menu appears

If I choose Boot as normal or Select boot device F12 or Enter BIOS Setup F2 - only blinking cursor at top left corner

Only Lenovo diagnostic works:

No USB device is connected nor HDD.

Memory test passed.

CMOS battery - removed, BIOS reset, getting message about CMOS reset, but still cannot enter.


I have (from Lenovo Diagnostic):

Lenovo E130

Product Name: 3358BEG

ThingPad Edge E130


BIOS: H4ET92WW (2.52.) 

Date: 04/18/2013


I supsect BIOS is corrupted.

Does exist BIOS crisis recovery from USB or something? 


Thank you

Hi Kentril81!


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Please do a power drain first by removing all connected devices (ac adapter, USB flash drive, etc.), shut it down and hold down the power button for 60 seconds. Enter BIOS again with the different methods here, https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht500216. If same issue, possible motherboard issue. You need to contact support (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/supportphonelist) for repairs.
