Weird boot problem with H50-50

2021-01-20, 11:44 AM

I have an H50-50 that all of a sudden will not boot.  Here's what's weird.  I cannot boot the system from either the internal HDD or the optical drive (with respect to the latter, I do not hear the drive spinning when I try to boot from it, although I can open and close the drive tray, so it is getting power).  I also have a bootable flash drive with Windows on it.  I can boot from that, but only if I disconnect the connections from the internal hard drive.  If I leave the internal HDD connected, the system will not boot from the flash drive.  What could this be?

Hello @Michael4126,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

This is highly unlikely however is it possible for you to try the hdd on a different machine or perhaps try swapping out this hdd for a different one?

 

It is possible you have a problematic drive that may need to be replaced.


Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

Thanks.  I will try that, but am not optimistic given what I have encountered so far.
