Preferred Solution: Lenovo g580 opens at boot menu/app menu screen help!!

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.)

I have a Lenovo G580 20157. Preinstalled with windows 8. I installed Ubuntu 16.10 and removed windows completely. When I resized the Ubuntu partition to take over Windows partition everything went smooth until I plugged it in. Now I'm stuck in a boot loop. I have tried every fix, except the bios recovery for Phoenix can't find the bios.wph file. Should mention hard drive was completely erased. Can't do anything now, not even bios menu. Please any suggestion I'll try.

Please help. When I turn on my laptop using normal power button it opens up the boot/application menu. I sm unable to come out of it. This happened when I found a screen " a problem occurred so windows need to shut down to prevent damage to your computer.." I quickly turned off the system by pressing the power button. Now when I am turning on my system, it shows the boot/application menu.

Please assist as I did the following steps to access the BIOS, it hangs:1. Shut down the computer2. Press the "Recovery Button" NOT THE POWER BUTTON (A small round button with curve arrow sign which is located on the left side of the Power Button just next to the dust removal opening on the left side of the laptop)3. Selected the BIOS Setup and nothing happens. I cannot even choose the boot option. If I put a pendrive with ubuntu, It picks it up, but not the Windows pendrive.My original HDD has bad sectors and cannot clone it. Any Ideas on how to help me?

So when I turn on my lenovo u410 laptop I get this menu box up as seen below in a black background. I've played around with the menu and I get nothing. This has been happening for the past few days and usually it manages to get past this and start up normally. However today is the day it's decided to stay put and I have no idea what to do. This is very frustrating as I only bought the laptop less then 2 months ago. Please help!     It's windows 8 btw   

A:lenovo u410 won't work. Boot menu/App menu pops up

Hi N_A,
 
Thanks for posting and welcome to the Lenovo Community,
 
I?d like to guide you in a way to try to set the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) inside the BIOS to be the first priority booting order so we will try to return the BIOS to factory default settings:
 
Step1: Please turn off the machine and then at the left side you can see the NOVO button which is the button with the curve arrow
 
Step2: Press on the NOVO button and then you will get option press on BIOS Setup
 
Step3: Please press on FN+F9 together and then press Enter on Yes option and then FN+F10 to save and exit and then press Enter
 
Hope the information helps. Let us know.
 
Regards
 
Soha

Just started happening this week.   It's stuck at the boot screen "lenovo".   I tried many different methods like removing battery, holding power button to reset, etc.  The *only* way to get it to boot is the remove memory card, and put it back.  Then it will boot up fine.     It might then boot fine for the rest of the day.  But then the next day (or after being shutdown for a while), it happens again so i have to remove memory card, put it back, etc.  What could be the problem here ?  I tried both memory slots.  So i don't think it's particular to one slot.

Hi, I just bought an L460 Thinkpad (14", 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SDD, core i5 6200U) without an OS, under a certain scheme for students and academics. I'm trying to install a Linux distro via USB. However, after pressing F12 and entering the Boot Menu, when I select USB HDD and press Enter, the Boot Menu prompt reappears. Making a selection here does not seem to have any effect, and thus I'm unable to boot from USB. Startup settings in BIOS: Legacy Only, CSM [Yes]. Would be grateful if someone could give some pointers as to how to proceed. Thanks,

When I pressed ESC or ENTER, nothing happens and it will keep going into the same window for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, only the system will start as usual. Anyone knows what is the problem?

Hey guys, I have a Lenovo Y480 whose HDD is in the process of failing.  I just got a Samsung SDD, and put a bootable copy of Win10 onto a USB stick.  Problem now is that I can't figure out how to get the computer to boot from the USB stick.  I'm in the BIOS Setup right now, and I've been through the topics both on the Lenovo website, and through a couple of different links from Google.  I just can't find the options mentioned in either of those websites. I'm not sure where to go from here.  Anybody run into a similar problem?  Any ideas on how to get this computer to boot from the USB stick so that I can install a fresh Win10 onto the machine? Thanks for the help!

nvm, I just got it working. I had to disable UEFI in order to do it from the "Boot" menu in Setup. I'll re-enable it later to make sure I don't accidentally boot from a different USB stick later.

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?

Hi,

I am just this evening having a problem. When I choose an option in some menus (e.g. right-click Desktop -> Properties, the Properties option stays there on the screen in front all of the windows - which is really annoying). To show you what I mean see the first attachment (Menu Problem.bmp).

I can get rid of it by changing the display resolution or colour depth (I then just change it back again). But as soon as I click on an option from the right-click menu or some programs like IrfanView (some programs for example Firefox don't have the same problem) it happens again. It does however only happen one at a time (once there is a menu option being constantly displayed it doesn't happen to another menu option until I get rid of the first one. The menus also seem greyed out until you put the cursor over it (see attachment two - menu problem screenshot 2.bmp).

So if anyone can help in any way I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

DoubleDave

A:Menu Problem - Selected menu option staying on screen

when is the last time you updated your video driver?

This also could be some menu effects gone wrong. Windows has some effects it can do by default, but other programs can add their own.

as an experiment - try the following:
- right click on your desktop and pick properties
- click the appearance tab
- click the 'Effects' button
make a note if which options are selected.

- UN check everything.
- hit 'ok' on both windows and they will close.


then test your menus and see if that solves it. If so - then I would reccomend updating your video drivers.

hi sivasandeep99,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
If you have tried FN+F2 when boot?
Or holding down Shift and clicking restart?
If those steps did not work either,  You might need to contact Lenovo Technical Support and have the system shipped to Repair Facility for BIOS Reflash.
 
Found this article but it is for the same model that has same issue like yours.

When I switch on my Lenovo Z580, it gets stuck on the Boot Menu/App Menu and after going back and forth, it eventually starts properly, is there a way to have my PC start properly without the boot menu/app menu popping up in the first place. Any help on fixing this will be much appreciated as I fear it is only a matter of time before it stays stuck on the boot menu/app menu pop up screen.

Hey everyone,

Does anyone know if it is possible to get a full screen menu screen instead of the standard windows start menu?

I want something similar to the linux gnome menu screen whenever I press my windows key.
I've already posted this question on the rainmeters forum but I think I should be looking for some sort of shell extension or possibly program it myself in .NET (any pointers on where to start? I have limited knowledge of .NET I suppose I should be looking at the windows API code pack...) or if it already exists some sort of third party application that does something similar so I can customize it to look like gnome.

My idea is to have something like this when I press my windows key:
It should have the standard start menu search function implemented.
I've already tried the omnimo rainmeter skin but this doesn't allow for setting the hotkey to the windows key nor does it have the standard start menu search functions implemented.

I should also disable the standard start menu when I press the windows hotkey.

Any ideas?

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

Good day all. I'm using Lenovo thinkpad windows 7. The problem I was having with my system started from keyboard keys like 1,2,3,4,5,8,9 and 0 weren't working at all. I tried some reset relatiing to keyboard but I didn't get any positive result. Now it has escalated to the level of getting Boot Menu and Application Menu whenever I put on my laptop. I'm unable to acess my files,documents and make use of my system for anything again.Someone Please, help me out of this mess. Thanks.

I've had my laptop for a little while now, and today my laptop suddenly crashed, and without me realising it crashed to a blue screen I turned my laptop off by holding down the power button.

Now every time I turn on the laptop I'm stuck on Boot Menu / App Menu, out of the four options that are there I can only press setup, but I have no idea what to do in setup that may help. I can't get on my laptop at all this way and it's very frustrating :/

I currently have the lenovo x1 carbon 3rd generation, which I purchased last summer. Hours ago, I decided to restart my laptop, but it ended up getting stuck in the boot menu/app menu. I have tried pressing the esc button or doing the f9 f10 method in the BIOS menu, but nothing seems to work. Does anyone know how I can fix this? This really is wasting my time, as I have assignments due and finals coming up, and I am getting really frustrated. Thank you!

This sounds like a damaged boot record or a bad SSD.  Do you have a good backup?
 
Does it ever start?  If so, run chrystal diskinfo (free)

Lenovo Z560 Ideapad running Windows 7 Pro SP1 all up to date. When I right click to pull up the context menu, the menu displays in two steps: the first step is faint, but when I move the mouse into the menu it brightens up. If I click on one of the menu items, that action will be performed, but that one menu item is then stuck on the display in a semi-ghost manner - by that I mean I can see it, but it is no longer active - clicking on it again does nothing, so it's not really there, but if the ghost is on top of a link or something, that action will occur. I have found that if I make one of these ghosts near the bottom edge, then that will be the only ghost for a while and it won't be so annoying. I right click on the desktop and click on Personalize, then that ghost will sit and stay there. I have tried installing a new video driver, but that didn't help - maybe I haven't found the right driver. I would guess there is a conflict with something else that has been installed - but there's about 6 years of stuff.  Any ideas?
