idea pad laptop not does not boot

My ideapad is not booting. It shows the bios and and boot up options normally, but it does proceed to boot from harddisc or even from a boot cd. The bios is appearing and I can see in the bios that RAM, HDD, CD Drive are all detected. But instead of booting it just hangs with a white cursor in the left top.

I can see that the HDD light is glowing only when the system is powered on and the CD light is glowing, when I put a cd in. But when I try to boot from CD using a live ubuntu cd, the cd drive light is not glowing, i.e no signs of reading from the drive.

This appears to be wierd to me, I have 2 x 2048 RAMS and I tried removing both and tested with only one of them at a time. Still it wont boot. What could be the problem here? Could the bios have got corrupted? If yes is there any easy way to flash/reset the bios? or Am i missing something. Please help gurus..

Re: idea pad laptop not does not boot

Hello venkatesh20 and welcome to community,


As per the symptoms mentioned by you issue seems to be with hard disk.


Can you remove the hard disk and check if the laptop can be boot from live cd.



Best Regards,
