Have a lenovo Z580 and it started cycling on start up.
Lenovo screen. - your PC ran into a problem..preparing for automatic repair...your pc ran into a problem.. lenovo screen.....
Tried the small recover button (there is no option for the lenovo recovery). I get Normal start up, bios setup, boot menu and recovery.
On all options it goes into a cycle.
Ordered the recovery discs fron lenovo and thought I would try those. Also ordered a new solid state drive (in for a penny). I can't get the CDs seen, as it loops into the above cycle when either drive is installed.
I use the small button to start with the Normal start up, bios setup, boot menu and recovery options, but nothing as it is trying to start as normsl and not use the cds.
I tried taking out the Hard drive completely and switching on. Trying to get to the BIOS to change so it is told to boot from CDs, but just can't get into the BIOS by any combination of key strokes. Help!
