Start up issue that may arise in Lenovo® Thinkpad SL510
Is your Lenovo Thinkpad SL510 not booting or starting?
With a business oriented computer like the Lenovo Thinkpad SL510, the specifications are not as important as the reliability of the unit. As long as you can open your documents quickly and without any hassle, the system is good enough. A laptop that won’t start is an absolute nightmare in a business setting since it renders your unit absolutely useless.
Here are possible reasons behind your Lenovo Thinkpad SL510 SL510 not starting up:
- No power
- Stops at boot screen
- Stops at loading screen
Sometimes, the simplest solution is the real answer to the problem. Your Lenovo Thinkpad SL510 may not be booting because it does not have power. Your battery may be drained or loose. Check your battery to make sure that it is snug then plug it to its power brick. Its power LED should come on and you can attempt to start it again. If your unit still does not power up, then you may have bigger problems and you should send your unit to be serviced.
Stops at boot screen
Another instance is when your laptop turns on and stops during the boot sequence. The reason behind this is your laptop cannot find the drive to boot from. There are a variety of reasons why this happens, a few are listed below:
The hard drive is loose
The hard drive is defective
The boot partition is corrupted
The boot device settings have been changed
The first two requires that your unit be opened in order to check and to repair it; and these issues are somewhat simple to deal with. On the other hand, the last two options are a bit complex and it is best that you ask a tech expert to handle the issues.
If Windows begins to load but freezes at the loading screen of your Lenovo Thinkpad SL510, this means that some of its files have been corrupted, causing the failure. You can attempt to repair the problem using the recover or installation disc but the real problem here is what corrupted the files in the first place. You may have viruses and other malware in your system that needs to be dealt with. It is best to seek technical assistance for these issues.
