Hello, I'm Tim, and have over 15 years of experience with eBay, Google, and the Department of Defense. I'm here to do the best I can to assist you with your problem. If remote access is needed, I will remote in, and call you, as well as provide a free tune-up. Also, follow-ups are always free if more is needed.

SO you took your Lenovo in for repairs and it came back to where it would not boot? What was the problem with it that it had to go in?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I took it for repairs and they updated me that the computer will not boot and they'll have to reorder parts but they cannot do it. So I asked if they could simply just extract all my documents/ pics/ etc and they said they do not have the system for it.

um, ok.....don't ever go back there.....they straight up Lied on that one, about not getting data off.

Expert:  Tim replied 7 months ago.

so you do not want help now? Leveno will not help you get data off, and will not have an idea of whats wrong with your system, they will have you mail it in.

Expert:  Tim replied 7 months ago.

all you need to get data off is 12.00 device to put the laptop drive in, and then pull it off, anyone can do it.

Expert:  Tim replied 7 months ago.

Good luck with leveno, you will lose 100% of your data when you send it in, but they will be able to fix what ever hardware problem there is.

I havent been able to pick my laptop up but how would you be able to fix my computer ?
Expert:  Tim replied 7 months ago.

I obviously can not fix the hardware problem remotely -
