Lenovo P500 boot loop no screen

2015-02-19, 15:36 PM

Greetings,

 

I recently installed an SSD HD, restarted the system accessed bios and configured for legacy operating systems.   Once the laptop restarted it is now stuck in a boot loop.   The laptop is not posting or displaying any logo or information.  The backlit keyboard turns on and the fans spin up.  After 5-10 seconds the laptop restarts and does the same thing.  I removed the battery for 30 min to an hour and I am experianing the same issue.  If the AC addapter is unplugged the laptop still loops however there is a single beep before it restarts.  Is there a way to reset/clear the BIOS settings?  I did not see any jumper and the CMOS battery is soldered on.  PLEASE HELP!!!

I've also removed the RAM sticks expecting a beep code or similar error however the results are the same.  I am rather confident if the BIOS settings are reset the system will boot as the issue started after modify a setting in BIOS.  I am unable to find a reset jumper and cannot remove the CMOS battery.   I also removed the battery, held the power button for 30 sec and attmpted to start, same issue.  Any sugestions?
