Preferred Solution: Lenovo Ideapad 150 - 151 KB does not boot

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.)

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

Are you able to get into the advanced boot menu by tapping F8? It might not be listed on the startup screen but it should still be there.
 
If not you can burn a repair disc from any PC with Windows 7. Theres steps from Microsoft Here.

So the laptop was running on Windows 8.1 and I did the upgrade to Windows 10.  But now it won't boot to Windows at all.  It's just stuck at the Lenovo boot screen.  Been like this for three days now.  Also I get the "Preparing Automatic Repair" occasionally on boot and I can get to the Windows 10 recovery screen, but I can't do System Restore or anything because I don't have a Windows login.I am starting to feel sick about any help would be appreciated.

A:Lenovo IdeaPad 700-15ISK Won't boot up

If that is a recent photo of you laptop in the BIOS, then that is a very good indication that the error is probably NOT hardware related, so sending it in to Lenovo would likely not resolve your problem.     Furthermore, the error you are seeing displayed is coming from the Window Operating system, and indicates that some important system files needed for Windows to start up properly are either missing or corrupted.     Typically such errors are not fatal, and can repaired or restored fairly easily by running Startup Repair, System Restore or running other recovery tools from within Window's Recovery Environment.  The last resort would be to backup any data you have stored on the SSD, and then Reset Windows to the default state or resetting the system to the factory default sate, all of which your IT person should be able to do. The error message usually would contain more information than just "Recovery  Your PLC needs to be repaired", so any additional 0x00000??? error codes or information you can provide would help direct you in the right direction.  Best of Luck,

Hello all, I have a Lenovo Ideapad Z500 taking long time to boot (almost 30 min) The computer is stuck with black screen during 30 min, before the lenovo logo appears and then it boots fine. Before logo, just a black screen and power looks good. The problem, the fans don't work and the computer gets very warm. Sometimes, because the high-temperatures, it automatically switches down, because temperatures, before seeing the lenovo logo. With lenovo diagnosis software I have checked all the hardware, and the tools says all hardware is ok. My os is Windows 10.

    Hello, I need any help I can get.  I we hvae a Lenovo IdeaPad that suddenly wont boot up.  Was told there was a pop up warning about a battery that needed replaced, but unclear on WHICH battery.  When power button is pressed, the fan starts, runs for 3 seconds and shuts off.  The touchkey lights all light for a second then go out, except fo the volume touchkey.  No sound of spin up on HDD, no flicker on screen.  Have removed battery and tried to start on cord, with same result.  Cord tested good, with a clean 20.6 V  Have heard that dead/faulty CMOS battery can stop some laptops from starting, but unclear on where it is, or even a real possibility.

A:Lenovo IdeaPad z565 wont boot

I have heard that same rumour about the CMOS battery, but I've never seen a real live case, so I'm not so sure that it is true.
Your symptoms are indicative of a blown motherboard, but there is one more thing to try before concluding that.
Unplug the machine, remove the battery, then hold the power button depressed for at least 30 seconds, longer if your finger can stand it.
Then plug in and try to boot up.

Hi,I bought a new Ideapad 320, which came with DOS based OS. I was trying to install windows 10 on that. I created a bootable USB through Rufus. But I was not able to boot from that, however I was able to boot another dell laptop with the USB. Then I created a bootable DVD and tried to boot, but again the ODD was not listed on the boot manager (this was because by default the Boot Mode was UEFI). So I changed that to Legacy and I was able to boot through DVD. I installed Windows 10 but I had problem with USB and Camera. USB was working in mass staorage mode, but when I connected wireless keyboard/mouse's receiver, USB Headset; none of them got identified. In device manager I see "Port Reset Failed" for USB. I tried updating the USB drivers but nothing worked. I think I should install windows in UEFI mode. But in UEFI mode I am not able to boot from USB. I tried creating USB for UEFI through Rufus also I tried to create that manually using Diskpart and manually copying the ISO content, but unfortunately nothing is working. I do not know whats the issue. Can someone guide me how to created bootable USB to be used to install Windows 10 PRO x64 in UEFI mode.

Hello All, I've had my Levovo Ideapad for 1.5 years, no problems until recently. Over the past few months when I turn the computer on all I see is a black screen it doesn't go to the Lenovo screen. Sometimes it stays on the black screen for a while and then boots up normally and works fine, sometimes it doesn't go past the black screen. Now the computer doesn't boot past the black screen at all anymore. I've tried the option of taking the battery out and pressing the power button for 30 seconds, that didn't seem to make any difference. Anyone else face this issue and able to fix it somehow? My warranty is over at this point... Thanks

(Boot mode is UEFI.) You have set the correct options in the BIOS, but you need to boot using the "Novo" button: (1) Power off the system. (2) Plug in the USB memory stick. (3) Press the "Novo" button.  On recent systems, you use the end of a paper clip inserted into the correct hole in the side of the laptop.  Consult your "Hardware Maintenance Manual" if it is not obvious which is the correct hole. The HMM can be downloaded from the support page for your laptop. (4) On the "Novo Button Menu", select "Boot Menu". (5) On the "Boot Menu", the USB memory stick should be listed.  Select that and start booting... -- from CyberSimian in the UK

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

Laptop is running on Windows 10. Yesterday I updated my AMD graphics driver using the update tool from AMD. After all the necessary files were downloaded and installed, I was prompted to restart and I did. Upon restart, the laptop would not boot past the Lenovo screen. The white circles that rotate always freeze and it just stays on the Lenovo screen upon every attempt to boot. I can't enter safe mode or the bios options, what can I do to fix this?  P.S. A few months ago I began having an issue with the sleep mode. When trying to enter sleep mode, the laptop would just shut down unexpectedly and almost instantly. I'm not sure what caused this issue, but I've just been avoiding it by shutting down instead of sleeping. Not sure if this has anything to do with it, or if the restart was interrupted by an unexpected shutdown.

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

Hello bree1234 and welcome to TSG.

I'm guessing it's not but if it's still under warranty send it for repair.

Is the screen completely blank all the time, no text or anything else is displayed at all ?

Shine a light onto the screen and check if there is a faint display of text etc.

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

Hi, I'm hoping this is the right place, I'm having some problems and I don't know where to turn... I do a lot of work with video, my original computer was too slow so I decided to upgrade the hdd (to 500GB 7200rpm) and add ram. (The hdd works like a dream!)I went through corsair.com and they showed me a list of compatible ram products. I then took the info I learned from their site down to my local computer store and bought the 4GB Kit. (Corsair RAM suggestions for the Lenovo Y510, I bought the highlighted 4GB Kit)After reading and watching a few things on installing ram it seemed simple enough so I went ahead with it and removed the two 1GB sticks out and put the two new 2GB sticks in.When I started up the computer...nothing happened. The lights go on I hear the fan and feel the hdd spinning but nothing on the screen for me to select. I tried waiting 30 seconds before installing the sticks, I tried alternating sticks, putting in one at a time even. I even put the old sticks back in. Still nothing. Sites say press f2 at start-up, still nothing, and they say press f8 to go into safe mode again nothing. A blank screen. My instruction manual tells me that there is no software to download and that BIOS in the POST process should detect the newly installed ram.What's going on?  Did I blow out my screen??? I know I'm way past the warranty...so I'm wondering who I call/ speak with?  Do I send it in to Lenovo to get it fixed?  How much will it cost ...

A:Computer Won't Boot After Upgrading RAM, Lenovo Y510 Ideapad, Windows Vista, 2GB to 4GB RAM

You say the computer experiences the same problem even with the old RAM? If that's the case, the most likely scenario is that you are installing it improperly. You can take your computer to a local computer repair center and ask them to quickly show you how to install RAM. It should be a very quick fix, so don't pay someone to do this. Even a knowledgeable salesperson at a computer store would be able to look at it and fix it. Alternatively, it is possible you damaged both the old RAM and the new RAM (very unlikely, but I suppose possible via extreme static discharge?). Or you somehow damaged the motherboard or other component (I don't see how this could possibly happen, unless you did something incredibly wrong, and even then it would be hard).

I have an 11" Ideapad 100S 11IBY and I clean installed ubuntu 16.04. I took backup of the entire eMMC drive, then wiped it clean and installed Ubuntu 16.04. Ubuntu worked fine until I performed the update by sudo apt-get update/upgrade after which it stopped booting and goes into a boot loop. I know how to make a 32bit firmware UEFI bootable USB but now the same UEFI bootable USB can't boot.I actually just need to boot as I have the clone of the entire eMMC with me on a separated hard disk which I can restore if there is a successful boot. I am just stuck with messages:"ubuntu boot failed" followed by,"Default boot deviceMissing or boot failed. Insert recovery media and hit any key, Then select Boot Manager to choose a new Boot Device or to Boot Recovery Media."The EFI boot devices options are always disabled in the boot menu and not even the Windows 10 USB (uefi) is working. I also tried the rEFInd boot manger on a bootable USB. Any help or suggestion will be greatly appreciated.Thanks.
