My wife handed me her Lenovo Ideapad earlier tonight. It goes to "Preparing Automatic Repair" and then goes blank
I attempted to run Hirens Boot CD; but, can't even see the HD in mini windows xp
my son has the same Lenovo laptop so I created a USB repair disk; but, the laptop won't boot with that either. When we boot via the USB repair tool it just has a swirley underneath Lenovo and hangs.
I"ve been fighting this for about four hours.
I cannot get into safe mode at all since the laptop won't boot. I"ve tried all of the googleable ideas..."f8", "shift f8" etc
but, nothing is working.
