I have a Lenovo E580 that we replaced the hard drive in. After replacing the drive, the laptop would not boot to the new hard drive. I ultimately disconnected the laptop battery and CMOS battery and let it sit for about 10 minutes.

Now the laptop will not even get to the bios screen or the lenovo splash screen. All I have is the Power button lights up, the FnLock / Esc key lights up, the CapsLock key lights up, and NumLock lights up. These keys will stay illuminated for about 30-45 seconds and then all 4 will go dark.
