Preferred Solution: how to boot into bios in lenovo ideapad 510-151KB ?

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.)

ideapad 510-151KB LAPTOP (not a desktop) Using 'Lenovo Companion' I did a system update and it stated there are BIOS to update. So, when I click to install this message pops up- I have NO idea what it means? nor what "with touch" means.  Is this something I should intall?  _ SECOND issue- sounds like my processor has the 'security flaw' circulating the internet today. I ran the Intel diagnostic and it stated my I7 has the issue. https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/intel-me-security-flaw Issue is, when I go here to download the fix I don't even see my model laptop listed. **bleep**? https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/len-17297#IdeaPad

Dear Members,I am in trouble with my  Idea Pad Z570: I bought it couple of years ago running Windows 7. During the years of usage I had no trouble at all. With Windows 10 beeing released, I upgraded and it starts to make a lot of troubles: Bluescreen directly after boot or sign in, no WiFi, ... all the known stuff. So I decided last week to downgrade to Windows 7. But now, I am even in a bigger trouble:I tried to boot the Windows 7 from DVD and it crashed into Bluescreen saying: Windows Error 0xc0000225Restarting is not helping. So, i tried to go into BIOS to boot from another device,but I do not even get to BIOS or UEFI. So, thats a kind of Deadlock: I cannot boot from Harddisk because Windows Error 0xc0000225 appears and I cannot get into BIOS & UEFI because the Windows error 0xc0000225 comes before getting to BIOS. Hope this description of my current situation is understandable and you guys have a lot of ideas how to fix it. Thanks!TheGooner

Lenovo Ideapad z580 Win10 64 I updated the bios with the private update (I know now that I should have used the public update) Then it showed this menu:http://i.imgur.com/kZaO2tf.jpg Whenever I selected HDD, the screen would go black for a couple of seconds and return to this menu. I fixed it by going into BIOS and changing bootmode from UEFI to Legacy. it booted but now everything is slow. It takes 5 mins to boot up and a further 15 minutes to reach usable speeds (I only have 4 startup programs). I tried changing it back to UEFI and it gives me the same problem as shown in the picture. I tried installing the public update, but it says that I cannot update as the current bios version is the same or newer. I went into BIOS and enabled BIOS back flash, and now when I try to start the public update, it just crashes. I also cannot access the start menu (this problem may be seperate and unrelated) I have backed up files and am prepared to do a clean reinstall of Win10, but I feel this won't work as it's a BIOS issue. The computer is unusably slow: what should I do? Thanks

However, after I plugged it in, the BIOS does not detect the SSD. I've tried all the different options in the BIOS and rebooting but it's never detected. Thinking that the SSD was broken, I plugged it in in an older laptop and I was able to use it fine, so that leaves the Ideapad as the source of the problem. Is there some sort of whitelist that is blocking my SSD from being able to be used?

Hello my friends ! A time ago i bouhgt two Lenovo ideapad 100 14 IBY (FreeDos Version) and install Windows 10 on it with UEFI and GPT Partition Table. All works fine until i want to play around with Linux and install UBUNTU Mate in UEFI on one of them. The install was easy but the Performance on Ubuntu with Bay Trail and the don't working Bluetooth was a reason to switch back to Windows 10. After that the Problem beginns. The Bios don't let me save changes anymore (only time and date !). There was no UEFI ESP and GPT Support since i install UBUNTU and the Bios Menu looks like that:Bios Entries on a blank DiskBootingThe Disk is Blank there is no ubuntu on there (Don't know waht the EFI Entries are no Hardware is connected). And when I boot also go to Network Boot there.(No Matter a USB Stick is connected). So what i did: # I Dismantle it and disconnect Battery and Cell and wait half an hour. # Nothing changes !# I change the HDD. # Nothing changes !# Reflash the BIOS by edit the plattform.ini - CheckByBios=1 - Error Cannot mount EFI Partition. # Nothing changes !# Install Windows 10 - Make mbr2gpt.exe and bcdedit and bootrec. # Nothing changes ! I can install and run Windows 10 in MBR and BIOS Mode on it. But no USB Stick was displayed in Boot Menu. So now Iam on my Limit and the Question is there a way to put UEFI and GPT back on it or does the BIOS locked in this State. For me UEFI is MALEWARE so why can a simple UBUNTU damaged my BIOS and ...

HI, Please skip to paragraph six for the actual issue I am having--the preceding paragraphs include info that may help to identify how to fix this. I am posting this using my HP desktop running Windows 7 as my Lenovo Ideapad 110 cannot connect to internet as explained below: Firstly, Sorry if I am breaking community guidelines in any way with this post. I did multiple searches but only came up with "forgot my BIOS password-how can I reset it" type posts. I am looking for urgent help to get back into the "BIOS" of my Lenovo IdeaPad 110 running preinstalled Windows 10. Everything was running fine until yesterday. This is when I made the mistake of thinking I knew more about the system than I actually seem to lol :/ So, yesterday--I entered the "BIOS" screen upon startup using F2 (function key+F2). I went on to disable wireless connection ability (to test something unrelated), and also switched Boot from strait UEFI boot mode to legacy/UEFI boot-with UEFI being the default boot option.  I don't know if any of the above have to do with the issue I am now having but I wanted to share it just in case. Here is the real issue as of now: Also yesterday at the same time while in "BIOS", I also went on to set an "admin password", the one you must type in before you can even get to the lenovo splash screen to enter "BIOS". Basically I believe this is referred to as a POST password although I am not an expert cleary (hence asking for the experts' he... Read more

This laptop is about a year old and I rarely use it because it is unreliable.. It freezes up about half the time I try and use it. I have re-installed Windows 10 about 6 times. When it freezes up and I have to shut it off by holding the power button it goes into a "scanning and repairing drive" operation for a couple of hours. I am so close to just throwing this in the trash and buying a Mac. Is it worth trying to repair it?

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.
 
Anybody have any suggestions on what the probl... Read more

Hi coucoune1633 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community. 
 
To enter the BIOS , turn off the pc and use the Novo key (item1 page12) to power on .
Novo menu would appear offering BIOS set up (for changing boot options etc. )
System recovery option from one key recovery initial back up would delete everything and restore to factory defaults.
 
About booting to safe mode:
Since starting with Windows 8 and up , usual F8 on boot is deeply embedded on the recovery making it hard to access. 
 
 
If Windows cannot boot to a viable stage for to access advance recovery menu :
 
1. Shift + F8 works on some system , do it at same time you see the lenovo splash screen repeatedly.
 
2. Forcing recovery mode on windows 8 : turn on then suddenly turn off pressing the power button , then on and off again for 2-3 attempts , Turn on and see if recovery screen would show up for the advance option.
 
3. Some system have F11 / F12 on BIOS to launch the recovery / boot option 
 
4. Using a bootable media ( USB rescue image often useful for repair / back up  , using Windows media creation tool  ) 
     If Windows 8/10 does not start: (using the command line) 
    How to boot into Safe Mode from the Windows 8/10 installation media or recovery USB flash drive.

A:How to reset BIOS Lenovo Z400 Ideapad Touch

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
There is no master password, back door or CMOS clearing procedure that will remove your forgotten password.  This is due to the ease in which laptops are stolen.   To resolve the issue you have basically two options.  The first is for the Uncle to try and remember the password he used.  Please keep in mind that passwords are case sensitive and he may have use upper and lower case characters.  The second option is to replace the motherboard.

Hi.I'm looking for a Lenovo B575 type 1450 bios cmos file to flash to my BIOS unless someone knows a solution. I believe the BIOS has been corrupted. I cannotI access/change/set-up utility or restore to defaults. I had been experiencing intermittent errors ever since upgrading from Sys 7 to 10. and after one such occurence decided to do a clean install hoping that might help (Mistake #1).  Anyway, to make a long story short, I kept getting various errors to the point that finally I had no choice but to go for the complete new install. I had most everything backed up anyway (Mistake #2). The install failed and burned at app. 90% complete!! Now, regardless how I boot up, if the hard disk is connected, I get a black screen "Windows failed to start blah blah....  Status: 0xc00000034 An unexpected error has occurred blah blah" but when the hdd is disconnected It will boot up from flash drive or CD etc..BUT WIIL NOT LET ME ACCESS THE BIOS SET-UP UTILITY.! Regardless of F1, F2, F.. Anything... PLEASE HELP!!!!UPDATE: I have tried via battery removed , various utilities etc etc with no luck
