Firstly i have been looking about forum for similar problems but on mobile so it's a nightmare! I recently dropped my lenovo g580 with pre-installed w7 had it for about 5 years. It didn't drop far but hit wooden chair armrest on front of laptop. The little coin battery holder appears to be loose in it's mounts.
When it dropped it started bepping, the lenovo splash screen came up then it went to black screen and printed out: check cable connection pxs mof: exiting intel pxe mof
Then goes to boot and app menu
Boot menu gives:
Atapi cd: 1. tsstcorp cddvdw sn-208ab (default highlighted)
2. Pci lan: atheros boot agent
When i hit enter it just loops through the bit i just described.
On the app menu under information at hard disk it says 'not installed', and under security menu: no hdd detected.
Why is HDD not detected when it shows in boot order list?
Things i've tried:
Took HD out and put back in
Tried putting hd at top of boot order - this used to be at top of list
Tried load setup defaults
All to no avail.
I'd read that perhaps bios can be reset, not sure if that would help and no idea how to do it.
At worst i'd like to recover data from c drive files and some stuff from desktop? At best is it possible to restore back to normality?
I really appreciate any advice leading on from this as to the chances of being able to achieve some sort of recovery.
