2013-05-27, 22:09 PM

Last thursday I got my new lenovo Y500. I was really happy with it and it work perfectly just 3 days.

Yesterday morning I used my compuputer to play for a while and then warch a movie. Then I turned it off because I had to go. When I come back I turned on the laptop and it just get stucked in the Lenovo's logo. and then in the upper left corner it shows a messsage that said " Checking Media" A few seconds passed and a blue screen appears on the center and shows this message:


Defauld boot device Missing or Boot Failed.
Insert Recovery Media and Hit any key
then select boot manager to choose a new Boot
Device or to Boot Recovery Media.


I tried to go to the bios and try to boot in diferent ways but i doesnt worked, The message just continued showing.

After a while i realized that the in the Bios only appeared the SSD of 16 gb an the DVD optical drive. but not the 1TB HDD. I dont know what to do. help please

more than likely the bios does not recognize the HDD- mine is back off to texas for a replacement (already had the top cover/. touchpad replaced)-


i advise you return your laptop (assuming you are still in your 21 days) and spend the money elsewehre- these machines are nothing but trouble!
