Preferred Solution: Lenovo flex 14 stuck on Boot Menu / App Menu

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.)

My brand new Flex 3 Windows 10 laptop is stuck at the boot menu. It might have been as a result of a Windows update but I'm not 100% sure. Any ideas because I would really rather not have to send it back but it's  nothing more than a very expensive paperweight at the moment. TIA for any help.

If I press enter on one of the options, nothing happens. If I press Esc, nothing happens. Can someone please explain how to fix this? I'm not afraid to have the computer factory reset, but I can't seem to be able to even do that.

A:Lenovo Thinkpad x230 stuck on boot menu

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,My ideapad FLEX 4 has been stuck in the startup menu whenever I turn it on and I can't get out of it. (For a little refrence I'm talking about the menu that opens when you click on the little windows logo at the bottom left corner of the FLEX screen since all my google searches took this as meaning the boot up menu.) I can still operate Chrome and all my apps from this screen but I'd really like to get to my background screen and out of this menu without it popping up (or leaving me stuck in it) anytime I log onto my device. I've run updates (when it needed to) and restarted it, and shut it down multiple times but it's still stuck in this. As mentioned earlier google has turned up nothing. Any help would be much appreciated.

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

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

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 machine crashed while streaming and casting a sporting event. I thought that the battery had died as it would not even blink. Plugged back in overnight and was not able to boot past the recovery boot menu. Several zillion trys later I got a good boot and had the snap to copy all my files to usb drive. When next I came back to the machine it was frozen on home screen with no function available. Again, every try to boot would generate the recovery boot menu and it would be locked up. No normal start, BIOS setup, boot menu, system recovery, enter key, up down arrows or esc key. I have plugged in the recovery flash drive, pressed the novo button, held down the f2 key, held down the esc key, pulled out most of my hair and walked away for a week. Right out of the blue, I got a clean boot. Yippee! I say and proceed straight to recovery hoping to get a factory reset. I'm back at recovery boot menu and locked up once again. Without the flash drive plugged in it goes to lenovo logo screen and straight to recovery boot menu. With the flash drive plugged in it usually just hangs up at the logo. Sometimes it starts the little rotating dot thingy under the logo like it really wants to boot (twice out of last 20 trys) but, mostly just hangs at the logo or goes to recovery boot menu and hangs there. HELP! help me please. Already took this bac to Best Buy and had it sent in a month after purchase for failure to boot. Geek squad sent it in for a new mother board with no more warranty.&nbs...

Hi Eftroy,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo community!
 
Wait for the machine to boot into the 'Automatic repair couldn't repair your PC' error message.
Click the 'Advanced Options' button
Open cmd and type:
bootrec /fixMBR
bootrec /Fixboot
bootrec /rebuildBCD
And also
chkdsk /r c:
chkdsk /r d:
 
Or else
 

Turn on the computer. 
 Wait for the machine to boot into the 'Automatic repair couldn't repair your PC' error message.
Click the 'Advanced Options' button
Click the 'Troubleshoot' button
Click the 'Advanced options' button
 Click the 'Startup Settings' button
Wait for the system to reboot into the 'Startup Settings' menu (is the same menu for safe mode)
Select the 'Disable early launch anti-malware protection' option. (Press '8')
If this worked for you, you should now boot into windows.
Now you can shut down your system and it should hopefully work first time the next time you start the system

 
Let us know how you get on.

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?

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

I bought a Samsung ultrabook last week. I'm still in the process of transferring my files onto it, however I just tried to turn it on and instead of booting up to my windows 8 home page, it goes to 'boot menu.' There are two options:

1.SATA HDD:: Hitachi HTS545050A7E380
2. Windows Boot Menu

If I try either of these it just loops back to the same screen again.

If I tab across to App Menu, I can enter setup, but I have no idea what to do in there!

What can I do?

If this still doesn't work, boot into Setup (Bios) go to Peripherals and make sure USB Legacy, or USB Keyboard are Enabled. Then go to Boot Priority and move USB down lower in the list of Bootable protocols. It should read, CD/DVD rom drive First Boot Device, followed by HDD. USB should be last in list or not at all.

Hey there, I own a Samsung laptop, the model is NP300E5C. I left my computer on the couch, rushed off to work and came home to find it on the ground. I figured it fell off the couch, which is about a foot off the ground. When I turned it on the fan was making a loud noise and it was clearly damaged or out of alignment. Instead of spending money taking it in, I decided to have a look and popped the back off. I took the fan off and cleaned it and then put it back. However, the hard drive was connected to the back cover by a little plug which went into the motherboard so I took that off in order to screw the fan back in place. I put the cover back on and tried to put the hard drive chord thingy into the motherboard again but it seemed a bit loose. I then turned the computer on, after screwing everything back, and now it only goes to the boot menu and no matter what I do, whether it be changing the settings back to default or trying to keep that plug stable, nothing will get me to Windows. Did I take something apart that was not supposed to come off?

Hi chuka0317,

Posting "HELPpP" doesn't really explain much. First, I recommend posting your computer specs to the best of your knowledge. Posting computer specs definitely helps troubleshoot computers issues more efficiently. Also, provide a bit more information regarding your computer issue. When you try to tap the F8 key to get to the safe mode menu, does the computer give you an error? When was the last time your able to boot to Windows successfully?

Hi before describing the problem I will give some details about the Laptop and the OS used. -Ideapad 710s bought in August 2016 -Windows 10 Home China preinstalled-Clean Install of Windows 10 Home Multilanguage about 2 months ago(UEFI install with 3 partitions, C, EFI partition, Recovery partition) [So this laptop is used by a friend of mine who I helped reinstalling the OS to get rid of malware. When reinstalling I faced the usual issue of a not detected HDD due to lack of drivers,which I had to download to a USB stick and had to load during installation.] About a month ago my friend started the laptop and got stuck in this screen: Upon pressing Enter the same screen will come back up afer a short black screen. I entered the BIOS menu (or whatever you call it) and found that there is no HDD listed in the boot options:  I changed all possible settings in that menu but nothing helped to normally boot again. I created an Ubuntu Live USB stick plugged it in, restarted and...the laptop booted normally to Windows like nothing had happened. I checked the boot menu again and the inbuilt HDD was listed in the boot options. My only guess some time later was that it must be a hardware problem since it appeared so randomly,and having a USB stick plugged lead to the HDD being recognised again (so is my assumption). Now, the same screen appeared again some time later and after waiting for a while my friend was able to reboot the lapto...
