E530 won't start



I just have a problem with my 2 months old E530.  Yesterday I could not start the computer up all I could see is the LENOVO screen and then the blank screen immediately after that.  I tried to press enter key to get to the bios setting and sometimes the menu display telling me to press F1 to go to BIOS setting but after pressing F1 black screen again.  I took out battery and use only power cord will no luck.  After pressing the power on and off a few times the computer boot normal so I then go to levono web site and down load the latest BIOS update.  The BIOS update was successful and the computer restart normal after the update but this time it telling me that the battery is not genuine and the computer will not charge the battery properly so I shut the computer down and this time it give me the black screen again,  I tried to turn on and off 5-6 times and still the same issue.


I rang lenovo support and they suggest I bring the laptop to a certified repairer since this issue seem to be intermittent.  Any suggestion please.

Hi, mangobango


There is a method you could try to repair the system. Boot up your computer, but begin tapping F8 repeatedly at the "LENOVO" screen. Continue tapping this key and see if a menu appears. If so, select the option Repair from the top of the list. See if this helps, or even if you can get to this screen.


Best of luck. Let me know how it goes,
