U110 F11 recovery

I have a 2304-23Q unit that when i power on it goes straight to the recovery then when i go through the process to recover it gets so far just before recovering then reboots back to press F11 on start up.

Also i cant find a parts list or a hardware maintenance manual.Please help

Re: U110 F11 recovery

Are you powering it on by a simple ON button, not NOVO?

What does F11 leads you to?

Re: U110 F11 recovery

Hi, it does the same whether you press the F11, the power on button or the NOVO button

it just takes me to the recovery window there i can select which type of recovery i want but after selecting full recovery it states it cant continue and you will have to re-start but it just loops doing this.

Re: U110 F11 recovery

Looks like boot process troubles. Sad.

NOVO mechanism is broken and there's no way to get over this except clearing whole HDD and installing our Windows from CD. But this will lead to NOVO unavailability. ANother method - sending it to Lenovo for repair, but you'll lose your data on HDD. You canget HDD out of laptop and connect to home computer to save data.

Re: U110 F11 recovery

There's no manual available for disassembly but I performed it and can help you if you are sure that you're qualified enogh - if you break something during process, you'll loose your warranty.
