Remove disks and Media

Specs: Windows 10
Hi,
I need a quick help. This happened before, i inserted a usb and it went wrong. i've sent the computer for repair, and now it's doing it again. i put a usb (again) and now it shows "Remove disk or other media. Press any key to restart" and when I do so, it doesn't even turn on. I'm now using a brand new power supply so I'm pretty sure that's not it. Please help. I am using Lenovo ThinkCentre Core i5 (the one that doesn't has a CPU, a smart? desktop)

Thanks !

Can you tell us what happens when you remove the usb device then try to start the computer normally?

What do you mean by "doesn't has a CPU"?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

The thing in this guys fingers is a CPU >> https://static.makeuseof.com/wp-con... So the Core i5 IS the CPU in your computer.

"Remove disk or other media. Press any key to restart"

Did you do as it says? The USB device is what's preventing the system from booting.

It could also be a DVD/CD in the drive forgotten about.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

when I removed the usb, the screen keeps on showing "Remove disk or other media. Press any key to restart" , any when i pressed any key, it didn't restart. update ; it shows slow yellow blink light instead of green!

Derek,

what I meant by doesn't have a cpu, is like an iMac, an all in one computer
sorry for the misunderstanding!

Remove USB device, hold power button until computer shuts down then start it up again. If it comes up normally then let it settle and do a Restart (rather than shutting down and starting again in two stages).

Let us know if this helps. If so it might be a problem with the USB drive rather than the computer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
