I have a Lenovo Y510 that I just used OneKey Recovery on to restore Vista and the computer's hard drive back to factory defaults. Now, basically the only thing I can do is navigate in Windows Explorer. When I try to run any other program everything freezes almost instantly (you can still move the mouse, but that's all. Ctrl+Alt+Del does nothing).


My husband tried to run Driver Verifier but then Vista just wouldn't boot up at all anymore, even in safe mode (when running through the list of drivers it would just hang on the last one). So we restored it again and are kind of at a loss for what to do now. Does anyone know what the issue here could be when the only thing currently on the hard drive is Vista?

I would try the OneKey Recovery again. If it doesn't restore you to factory condition, then I assume the recovery partition or HDD in general is corrupt. Your option now is to deal with Lenovo and attempt to get physical recovery disks and probably a new HDD. Good Luck.

Is there an option to run any hardware diagnostics in the OneKey Recovery menu or somewhere in the BIOS? If so, try testing the disk.

If not, Lenovo provides a diagnostics boot disc that can be downloaded on another computer (if you have one available) and put onto a CD or USB flash drive: Lenovo Bootable Diagnostics

Have you tried turning it off and on again?
