Thinkcentre A70 will not boot up

My Thinkcentre A70 is having problems booting up. It gets the a black screen with thinkcentre across it and underneath it, it say's something like to interrupt normal boot process press enter. from there it will not let me do anything. I can't get into the BIOS to change the boot process so i can't use the recovery discs either and there are no beeps either.


Could somebody please help as it is urgent

Re: Thinkcentre A70 will not boot up

Hello Johnnyw1984 and welcome to community,


It is sad to know you are not able to use the system


Kindly unplug the keyboard and if any usb device is connected and check if the same message appears.



If the issue persist connect the keyboard and press F12 to have the boot options and select hard disk.




Best Regards,

Re: Thinkcentre A70 will not boot up

I am having the game issue.  I have a 7099-A5U what just boots to the Lenovo screen that says "Hit Enter to interupt normal boot".  No Matter that USB port I am plugged into or what key I hit (DEL, ENTER, F1, F12, F8) nothing happens and it stays on that screen.


As well I cannot try a PS2 keyboard and this model only has USB.


Any help would be appriciated.
