I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all.  A few days ago the power ran down on my yoga to where it turned off while I was working.  I plugged in the power cord and powered the machine up again.  It only goes to this Boot Menu/App Menu screen.  I can get to the Startup Interrupt Menu by pressing enter.  From there I can enter the BIOS Utility, but am lost inside there.  There are 3 other options from the interrupt menu.  ESC = resume normal startup (takes me back to boot menu screen); F10= to diagnose hardward (ran full diganoses and everything passed); and F12=to choose a temporary startup device (takes me also back to boot menu).   The only thing that has changed on my computer is that I installed windows 10 last week.  It ran perfectly for 3 days, and only when the power ran down did this happen.  Would very much appreciate any guidance here.  Thanks!

When you run diagnostics, is the disk sensed?  If yes, it sounds like the disk was corrupted when it shut off

My Thinkpad X1 Yoga is connected to my work network via a OneLink Plus.  I have a wireless keyboard and mouse connected.  Since the last bios update, when I power up the laptop, a boot menu pops up and I have stop, open the laptop, and select my hard drive using the laptop's screen and keyboard. Is there a way to disable this menu?

Hi Everyone! I have a Thinkpad Yoga 12 and recently I am experiencing a rather serious problem with the machine.If I have a drive in it, it will simply not start the booting process and will freeze on the "press enter to interrupt..." screen. Whenever I remove the disk (SSD) the computer starts and I can access BIOS/Diagnostics/Etc. but when reinserting the SSD everything stops and the computer freezes on start.This problem is very annoying because without a proper boot I cannot update the BIOS or do anything with it at all. Did anyone else experience something similiar?I checked the SSD in a different computer and it works without a problem.

Hanging on startup with a disk inserted would most likely indicate either a bad SSD or a bad SATA control circuit (motherboard).  If the disk is OK, that leaves only one part.

I would need to see it to be sure, but my guess is that the hard disk was logically damaged.  That means the boot record or partition information was wiped out.  It could also be a disk hardware error.  Do you have a backup?

Two ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen2 TabletPCs will successfully boot into Windows 10 just fine from a hard poweroff.  But once in windows, if i choose Restart, it will hang at the "LENOVO" BIOS  level boot up logo with "To interrupt normal startup, press Enter".   Stuck at Lenovo BOOT BIOS initialization screen, right before handoff to the Operating System. "To interrupt normal startup, press Enter" At this point, pressing ENTER does not work.CTRL-ALT+DEL causes the screen to change shade for a moment, but effectively does nothing.Changing the UEFI settings to diagnostics results in black screen.Holding the power switch to force a poweroff, waiting a few moments, and then powering on results in a successful windows startup.  DevMGMT.msc does NOT see bluetooth and there is "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)" entry under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".  I have run all automatic updates via "Lenovo Vantage" and the manual TPM update.   I can boot into the firmware setup and have had it revert to factory defaults and reverted to factory defaults for all security settings.   I even tried the Win10 repair startup problems, but it says it cannot fix this.   

A:ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen2 does not Restart, requires hard power off. Stuck at Lenovo boot logo.

It looks to me like you have a faulty hardware issue or a serious driver issue. Try the Lenovo recovery to put the device back to the factory windows install. If that fails, I would think you have a hardware issue.

After having my yoga 460 for about half a year, using it mainly in normal laptop mode in the office, one hinge got stuck while closing laptop and now allow only for limited movement (I cannot close the lid and cannot open more than slighly over 90deg). Suppousedly those hinges survive over 30 000 openings. Apparently not. Anyone else had problems with low build quality of recent thinkpads? Is it just Yoga, or P40 as well? I'm considering changing for some more robust laptop.

You might have damaged the power circuitry on the motherboard.  If that is the case, the only solution is to replace the board.  There is an array of power transistors that handles the switching back and forth between AC and battery.

My new model 20FY0002US Thinkpad Yoga 14 developed a problem with the keyboard. When switching from tablet to laptop screen rotation I heard a CLICK and the right side of the lift-and-lock keyboard got stuck. The button to the right of the delete key remains fully extended no matter the screen rotation and the keys on the right side dont work well. Basically they remain recessed because the interstitial plastic does not retract. Likewise the extended button prevents the screen from closing fully on the right side. Is this something that is fixable for a handy user or should I be returning the laptop to the retailer? Sadly i cannot afford to be without a computer for the time it would likely take to ship it in for repairs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi
 
I think you should take it to Lenovo for repair, to some Lenovo service center. I know it is not good to be without a laptop but I think it will take some days to repair it.  Open a ticket with Lenovo about it.

The laptop lags and I have to go to task manager to End the processes "Thinkpad Message Client Loader" and and "Thinkpad message Receiver for Shortcut Hot Keys" for the the laptop to stop lagging (CPU is 100% on startup for some reason which may account for the reason of lagging). I have updated every driver with Driver Easy and Lenovo System Update. I have tried disabling then renabling and rolling back audio drivers but to no avail. I even uninstalled then reinstalled audio drivers. I have also gone to volume mixer, playback devices and recording devices but according to it the speaker works fine. I tried adjusting the volume in volume mixer but it keeps coming back down just as always.  The main problem is that the sound is stuck on mute and I just want it resolved.

A:Stuck in BOOT MENU

Some change(s) must have been made to the machine. What was installed or what settings changed the last time it was used?

You should be able to restore the machine to the factory condition (the way it was when you bought it) by pressing F4 on the boot screen. Just make sure that all your backups are recent because all your files and programs will be lost. Your manual should tell you in more detail, but System Restore may also be available by that method if you want to try that.

It would be a good idea to maintain a full, system backup so that you won't lose everything when something like this happens, or when the hard drive fails, which they all will do, unless you stop using them.

You have a Samsung with Windows 8 pre-installed is my opinion and the computer has what is known as a UEFI - (BIOS) system
That boots from a file on the hard drive in a partition created when the O/S was installed and in which are the files to boot to Windows

Try both Windows boot manager, there should only be ONE, it has the indications at the moment, although it may be other causes, of someone changing settings and trying to boot from a DVD etc.

It would help if you could post the full model of the Samsung, and indeed any details in respect of any attempted boots, installations , changes, use of registry cleaners, boosters etc., BEFORE this problem arose.

Was it by chance left powered on, on battery only and the battery failed, whilst it was running, if so it may be a corruption of files caused whilst updates were being installed. Not a likely cause , but possible.

Finally HOW OLD is the Samsung please
