  22. I have a Lenovo G50-80 which suddenly would no longer start – no F2 F12 or Nova button would work and all that appeared was GRUB on screen with a flashing cursor. Solved by putting hard drive in another machine where it did work. Access the Bios via F2, went to Security tab, then down to Restore Factory Keys and pressed Enter to do the restore. Also set it to Boot from a DVD first. Replaced it in the G50 and it started with the DVD loaded. Rebooted and everything was back to normal. Sent as information that may help others.
