Specs: Windows Vista
I have a Lenovo 3000 J series with Vista on it. When you power it on the LED lights up on the tower, the monitor light goes green but then goes yelllow and all I get is a black screen. I tried the recovery disk and while it does spin, nothing happens. I was thinking it could be the memory, but the only other sticks I have to try are DDR and this Lenovo has PCI2.whats the prob???

It may be your cmos battery. Easy to (and not expensive) put a new one on your board.

A bad CMOS battery will not prevent a system from booting up. It's pointless to try to boot off a disk & I doubt the RAM is the problem unless you've been messing with it. Were you having any other issues before this happened?
