Safe mode and can't load with same result. Tried the factory reset, it hangs.
I can get into the bios. I have a recovery disk but I think the disk is bad as it doesn't load the OS. I have Windows 7.
Any ideas out there? Appreciate any feedback
Does Lenovo make a recovery disk? I checked their site and couldn't find.

I use Ultimate Boot CD because it contains a truckload of utilities, though the version I'm using is much older than the current one.
Download, burn to CD, then boot from it. Choose Memtest86+ 5.01 and let it complete at least 2 complete passes. Try Memtest86 4.37 if the other hangs at the start. In any case, any memory error will cause the program to display an error message in white text with red background, so it's pretty hard to miss.
