My Ideapad Y430 is not booting up ! It just hangs on startup and there is no action. I booted in Safe mode, restored the system to an earlier date - but the problem persists. help please ....


Answers :

If you can boot into safe mode, then you can run a repair. If you have Vista, then just boot from the cd and choose repair from the choice menu. You can also run repair from xp, when it gives you the choice menu of three things to choose from, choose to install windows, then the next thing, it will find your current windows installations and ask if you would rather repair the current one, choose yes and see if windows will fix itself. If that doesn't help, run the disc again and get into the command prompt and try fix the master boot record or fix boot. When the command prompt comes up type in FIXBOOT, there is also the command FIXMBR. click ok, restart and see if the machine boots up. Otherwise try to run diagnostics on windows from safe mode if possible.
