Q: ThinkCentre: Stuck at Lenovo splash screen after lenovo solution bios upgrade

Hey folks,

Got an M93 with Win 10. Lenovo solution center asks to do upgrades on BIOS and a bunch of drivers. Did that, and now I can't boot the computer.

Tried pressing F1 after pressing start button, no help. Can't enter BIOS, still stuck at lenovo screen. Also tried Ctrl+Alt+Del on that screen, blacks out then stuck at lenovo screen again.

Please help and inform, thanks!!!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: ThinkCentre: Stuck at Lenovo splash screen after lenovo solution bios upgrade

I would try resetting the BIOS using the jumper, or by taking out the CMOS battery, wait a minute or two, and then replace it and try booting up. See page 73 of the Hardware Maintenance Manaul linked below for location of the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper (# 20) https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m83m93p_hmm.pdf Clearing the CMOS (BIOS)1. Remove all media from the drives and turn off all attached devices and the computer. Then, disconnect all power cords from electrical outlets and disconnect all cables that are connected to the computer. 2. Remove the computer cover. 3. Locate the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper on the system board. 4. Move the jumper from the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2) to the maintenance position (pin 2 and pin 3). 5. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. 6. Turn on the computer and leave it on for approximately 10 seconds. Then, turn off the computer by holding the power switch for approximately five seconds. 7. Repeat step 1 through step 2. 8. Move the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper back to the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2). 9. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. Good Luck,

Hey all,

I have recently decided to restore my laptop back to factory settings for various reasons.

The factory settings on the recovery partition mean returning to Windows 8.1 and then upgrading back to Windows 10.

I have no problem returning to Windows 8.1 but when I use the Windows Media Creation tool to download Windows 10 and install something happens.

I start the installation where it says the computer will restart several times, but during one of the restarts it gets stuck at the Lenovo splash screen.

I have since run restore to get back to 8.1 a couple of times just in case there was a problem there but still the same problem happens when trying to upgrade to 10.

I have had no problem returning to 8.1 and then upgrading to 10 in the past.

I'm not sure what kind of information you'll need from me so request and I will let you know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Windows 10 Upgrade - Installation stuck at Lenovo splash screen

I forgot to add:
After it has been onthat screen for a couple of hours I decide to hold the power button down on the laptop to force it to turn off.
After that it restores 8.1 automatically and presents this error:

We couldn't install Windows 10
We've set your PC back to the way it was right before you started installing Windows 10.

0xC1900101 - 0x3000D
The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during MIGRATE_DATA operation

Other posts in this Forum have stated that antivirus could be the problem and removing it has solved the problem for other users, however, mine is a wipe and return to factory and I have uninstalled that awful McAfee that comes with Lenovo.

Okay, so my Lenovo N580 IdeaPad with i3 processor is stuck at the splash screen, aka the black screen with Lenovo written on it in bold white letters. I tried removing the battery, then putting it back on, then pressing power button for 45 secs. I also tried pressing the the Novo button (the small round and black button besides the power button) but the screen shows no change and does not go to bios/reset menu on pressing f9/f12 too. What else can I do to get my laptop back on? Please help, all my project work is on my laptop

The first thing I look at if a machine hangs at startup is the USB ports.  Physical damage can create shorts which cause these symptoms.  Check for bent pins or a tongue broken off.

Hi Azadkv,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G500 Laptop is not booting to Windows and hanging at Lenovo Logo and the issue persists even after performing Flee-Power step. Hence, I suggest to perform BIOS reset and check if the issue persists. Below are the steps to perform BIOS reset:
 

To access BIOS menu turn OFF the Laptop and press the NOVO button located beside power button.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now click on ?F10? Key to save the changes that are done in BIOS, the computer will automatically restart.

Do post us back if the issue persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

To make a long story short, I've been asked to help fix a friends mom's U410 laptop which wasnt activiting Windows 8.1 properly (Was Windows 8 OOB). After struggling with the activation for a few hours, I backed up the data and decided to just run the Lenovo one key recovery. During the recovery process, the installation had failed. When I attemped to reboot, no Lenovo splash screen was loading - just a black screen (although i can hear the cooling fan start, and hear the harddrive spin up. I tried to access the boot menu thru the novo button, and nothing would load; still a black screen. After researching for a few more hours, I had found multiple threads about bios updates required to be able to access bios with windows 8, and other threads about gpus on these units booting to a second screen (which i did test, and the second monitor does indicate a signal). None of the solutions on those threads have given positive results.   Basically, I've run out of options and am looking for some suggestions. The only thing that shows up on the display at anytime is the small blue novo menu when the button is pressed (normal start up, bios setup, boot menu, system recovery - all of which just leave a black screen). Thanks.

Yesterday I did a routine restart and when rebooting my E32 SFF it got hung up on the Lenovo Logo splash display and didn't load windows. The operatiing system is Windows 10 64 bit. Thinking it might be a hard drive problem, I had at the time a 500GB SSD installed which had been cloned from the original 180GB SSD that came with the computer. I swapped the 500GB drive with the original 180GB drive but the problem still persists which leads me to believe it's not a hard drive or Windows issue. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The fans power up and the led indicators as well as the USB ports, so I'm doubting a power supply problem. I have a Windows 10 repair disc but it won't boot on the disc as I believe the bios is set up to boot on the hard drive only. Is this a motherboard problem?

Hi I am new to this community, so I would like to applogise if I mist a simillar subject (I did check some but non resolved my problem). I have a thinkpad t420, I bought a used one. It worked great, and I bought it from a friend, that I trust. I installed a ssd drive, was usnig Linux, and everything worked for one month. But then I bought a HDD caddy, and replaced the CD rom. After that my thinkpad worked for a day (although it didnt recognize the second HDD). The next day I tried searching BIOS for some settings, and after restarting my laptop it was stuck on Lenovo splash screen, rebooting in a loop. I tried:- removing and replacing the caddy with the CD rom,- replacing my SSD drive,- replacing RAM (both slots),- reseting BIOS,- running a diagnostic CD (but it will not boot, neither can I boot from an USB) My google search showed that it could bi a problem with one of the USB pins inside of one of the ports (short circuit or something like that), but I could not finde any damage. So I am thinkig that the motherboard could be damaged, but I can access BIOS, but that is the only thing I can do with it. I would be wery thenkful for any advice or help, before I go to an official Lenovo service for help. Thnak you! Z.

A:T420 stuck on Lenovo splash screen

Hi Zjaz123456,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with not booting to OS on your ThinkPad T420.
Is both HDD &SSD detecting in BIOS?
 
Check with removing CMOS battery, make sure you have disconnected the system from AC adapter and battery is removed.
 
Remove both the drive & battery from the system, disconnect the power adapter. Press and hold the power button for 15 to 20 sec perform this step for 2 to 3 times and then connect only the drive which is having OS installed in it. Use only power adapter to switch ON the system.
 
Hope this helps. Do post us back for further assistance!
 
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

Hi everyone. I've got a big problem with my laptop. I will explain the whole situation.  I recently upgrade my laptop with a Samsung Evo ssd and a 8 Gb ram ddr3 1600. At the beginning everything was fine but then, sometimes I got screen problems (like flickering) and windows 10 crashed. Now the biggest problem : my laptop is stuck at lenovo logo with loading dots. Even if I try to load USB windows tool (to install new os) it doesn't work. I also tried to install Ubuntu unsuccessfully. I searched on the web all the possible solutions. I temporary removed the battery, ac adapter and hold the power button for 30 secs, but nothing. I also read to remove the cmos battery but I can't locate it in my IdeaPad z500. I also searched on the hardware maintainance pdf but there is nothing about that. I also removed ssd and new ram  with old components but it's still the same. I don't know what to do know, please help me!!

Hello folks,  I seem to be having some issue with installing Windows 10. I found the Lenovo Upgrade Checklist and followed the steps point for point. (https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht104203) After downloading the update, it requested a restart and booted up into the update screen. The update got to around 20% and restarted as noted on the update screen.  Once again I'm presented with the Lenovo boot screen but this time it doesn't seem to be progressing, nothing has changed for the last 50 minutes and counting. What was other people's experience through the upgrade? Should I be prepared for a longer wait or is this abnormal to the process? Thanks for taking the time to read!

Hello! I have done some snooping around, but can't find anything that explivitly solves the problem I have been having. When my P50 is plugged in at my desk (eg. Monitor, Ethernet, Keyboard, Audio Out, Power), and it has shut down / hybernated when I turn it back on it will stick at the LENOVO splash screen (looks to me like it locks up because it won't even let me into advanced boot options).  Temperary Solution: Problem seems to resolve with removal of battery, hold power button, plug in AC, boot with only AC power. (Sometimes this takes several attempts). Thinking about just setting shut down time to forever to avoid altogether.  Causes: I suspect it has something to do with my monitor (just a cheap ASUS off of Amazon), it is not a repeatable problem either, it only happens off a total cold start and maybe only 1/5 times at that.  Other: BIOS Version 1.52  Any opinions are welcome    -P50-Engineering

Hello,
 
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (XXXXXXXX). Here's a little back story as to how I got where I am right now.
 
This laptop was brought to me because it kept on getting the blue screen of death. I found out that it was due to a Windows Upgrade that fudged some things up. So I was going to just give it a clean install of windows.
 
When booted from the USB. I tried deleting the other partitions and writing Windows to the HDD. The windows installation wouldn't get far as I would come back to check on it and find that it was stuck on the windows icon splash screen as if it was booting. (Computer was like this for 15 minutes before I hard restarted it.)
 
Thinking that maybe it was just being extra picky when it came to deleting those other partitions, I plugged in my hirens disk and tried wiping it all together. Once it starting going through and wiping the hardrive it suddenly just went black again. That's how I got to where I am now.
 
The problem is now that everytime I try and boot the computer, it won't even show the Lenovo Splash screen. The screen will constantly be black, and the computer will constantly hard restart itself. (It audibly powers down with a click).
 
I was going to try and pop out the CMOS battery but I couldn't find any documentation on where exactly it's located inside the laptop. Right now i'm going to try and mount a BIOS update to a USB drive and boot to it, but given that I can't even get the BIOS splash ... Read more

Hello all, I've been trying to figure out an issue with no luck. I'm servicing a M900z 2-in-1 desktop that seems to sometimes hang at the Lenovo splash screen. Sometimes when booting, a 9C or B4 will appear on the bottom right, hanging at the splash screen. What I have tried:- Re-seating Memory & HD. Flashing the BIOS. Re-imaged machine. Checked & updated drivers. Checked for windows updates & all is updated. I used chkdsk utility, along with SFC, & no errors were found. Could the hanging potentially be a hardware issue? This issue seems to be very intermittent - I've had the desktop at my desk for a few days, performing lots of restarts. In the BIOS, it boots directly to the HD. Sometimes it will boot right away & not hang, while other times it will hang for awhile, & eventually boot. When it doesn't boot, I constantly have to restart the machine and eventually it will boot.  Thanks for any support.

The light from keyboard works, and I can turn it of/on thru the keyboard buttons, but nothing else works and the screen keeps always on the same black lenovo screen.I have tried several solutions as follows:   - Turn it off, and then turn it on. Even tried more than one time and always keep the same;   - Turn it on on safe mode/BIOS (?) by pressing the small in button near the power button, but it turn on and keeps stucked in the same black lenovo screen;   - Turn it off, and press the power button for more than 1 minute. After turn it on and was the same;   - I left it and wait until all the battery was completly dead, then press the power button for long time, and after that connect it to power and turn it on. Nothing, just keeps the same.Any ideas or suggestions?Thanks in advance

It may be the drive timing out.  Pull the HDD and see if you can boot into the BIOS

What is the cheapest 300W+ PSU that will fit in this machine? I want a gpu but that 240W PSU won't cut it. EDIT: Here is the gpu i am planning on buying. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814932005&ignorebbr=1

A:Lenovo ThinkCentre M81 PSU Upgrade?

Tower or Small form factor... actually posting your Machine Type Model (MTM) would help. If you have the tower, just about any ATX PSU like this one would work since I believe your motherboard as the standard 24 pin connector, but with that card you might want to wait to see if it even needs a 300w PSU, because it may work just fine with you current PSU unless you have a bunch of HDDs installed etc.. If you want a Lenovo PSU that shipped with the M81, you can get a 280 watt like this one  https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Lenovo-41A9684-Desktop-PS-5281-7VR/dp/B00R3NPNN6, which should be more than capable of powering your GPU. Best of luck,

Hello, I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre M58 small form PC. I would like to install a better graphics card into the PCI Express slot. Logic would dictate I need a better PSU than the standard 280 or 240 watt PSU that comes with the system. Were can I purchase a more powerful, small or low profile PSU for this system? Any help woud be appreciated. Not looking for gaming use, just more power in the PSU for possible dual monitor use, better display, and power/stability for a 1/2GB GPU card. Thank you, Peter Costa
