Customer Question

Sometimes I have difficulty in starting my computer.
A message appears :No operating system found: and the computer freezes. I can get round this by switching the electricity off for 10 seconds or so, Then it might work normally for several occasions, until the message appears again.
I am 91 with poor eyesight so I tend to be on the slow side.

The symptoms indicate a fault on the motherboard
Multiple components may cause this:
1. Motherboard
The BIOS either needs to be flashed or the motherboard is shorting somewhere
Fixing this would involve the unit to be disassembled to check the above components
Since this is an all in one PC, disassembly steps are complicated and require a service
I would suggest to call Lenovo at 0***-***-**** (Monday - Friday 9am - 6pm GMT) to get a service arranged
i hope you understand that in case of hardware faults i can diagnose the fault but cannot make a bad part work again
