Preferred Solution: Lenovo Thinkpad x230 stuck on boot 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.)

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?

I recently purchased an X230 thinkpad.I am having some issues, specifically;a. the screen is a yellowy colour - this seems to only be at night, not during the day!b. the right click on the bottom of the touchpad does not work conistently - sometimes it acts like a left click instead of a right click - this is incovenient as i do a lot of editing work in WordI ran a Linux check and these issues did not occur - so I think it may be software related - I am using Windows 10 Pro.Does any one have suggestions?thanks

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,

I have a 4 year old Lenovo Thinkpad X230 computer.  Since I upgraded to Windows 10 (two years ago?) my computer has randomly shut off with no warning.  There doesn't seem to be a pattern with regard to when or how this happens.  The computer starts normally every time.  This can happen upwards of 5 or 6 times in an hour (although sometimes it can go several days without shutting off). In the last year (since June 2016), the computer has been evaluated by three different technicians on three different occasions (June, October, January).  Each found no hardware issues, no issues with fuzz/dust, no obvious software issues, no malware or other viruses.  Personally, I have explored the answer on the internet and fiddled with the settings relating to sleep mode (among other suggestions) and nothing seems to have worked.  I recently was advised to revert to the original windows 10, undoing all the updates and additional installations that I've put on the computer.  I did this, and miraculously it helped (although it still shut off twice since then.  This was in February).  In the last two weeks, I was forced to upgrade back to normal and the problem has returned.  Additionally, the first person who looked at my computer (back in June 2016), told me that this was aparently a common problem with Windows 10 and that the only way to fix it was to revert to Windows 8.   I would like to not have to do this, if poss...

Hello,  I'm having some trouble with turning on my laptop. The problem originally started when some keys on my keyboard stopped working. I cleaned the keys, restarted my laptop, tried a previous restore point and then did a hard reset after nothing worked to fix my laptop.  After hard resetting, I tried turning on my laptop and it did not turn on. So far, I've plugged in my laptop into the adaptor, plugged the adaptor directly into the wall outlet, and removed the battery and plugged in the laptop. The one thing I have noticed with my laptop is that when I plug in the adaptor, the battery and sleep lights turn on for a moment, then the sleep light turns off, and the battery light will stay on momentarily but then it will blink off after a few seconds. What else should I do? Thank you

Hi, any ideas please - I replaced x230 laptop fan now several problems:1) Replacement fan bought from ebay. Seller said x220 and x230 fans are compatable. My original had 3 wire plug and a bracket arm, the new one has 4 wire plug and a stud arm. I had to fit it stud to stud.2) Replaced CMOS battery.3) Power on goes to logo > 'entering set up' > time and date error and fan error message> shuts down.4) Tried various fixes to restart, such as, charged CMOS battery for 12 hours, took out HD and battery, completed eletrical discharge, removed CMOS battery for 1 minute and started again without HD and battery, reseated the RAM card, used all combinations of F keys. They look hopeful but all return to error messages.5) Only delete or Ctl+S opens > Intel Boot Agent Set up Menu >F4 >back to error messages, shuts down6) This screen provides diagnostic support information but I don't know what it means.7) Should I use the CMOS pin jumper? Hope someone will reply.Thank you.

You might have damaged the power circuitry on the motherboard.  If that is the case, the only solution is to replace the board.  There is an array of power transistors that handles the switching back and forth between AC and battery.

Apologies if this is reprising and earlier question on this topic. I have recently acquired an old-ish second-hand ThinkPad X230 [2325SWK build with a G2ET91WW (2.51) BIOS], accompanied by a ThinkPad UltraBase Series 3 docking station [P/N 0B67692] which has an empty 2" bay.I need advice on the following issues:1    The X230 currently has an SSD installed [Samsung 128GB MZ7TD128HAFV-000L1] which will not be large enough for the programs and program data that I have planned to install.  I would like to upgrade to a 1 1TB SSD, and I propose to clone the contents of the existing 128 GB drive to a 1 TB Samsung 850 Evo [MZ-75E1T0B].  Are there any SATA or other firmware issues that I should be aware of before acquiring the 1 TB drive, arranging for its cloning and for the replacement of the current 128 GB drive?2    I would like to populate the empty 2" bay on the UltraBase Series 3 docking station with an HDD, and the model I have in mind is a 2 TB Seagate BarraCuda Hard Drive [ST2000LM015].  Again, I'd like to know if there are any hardware, firmware or other issues before acquisition and installation.I'd be grateful for any help on either of these two issues in an Australian context.

ERROR0210: Stuck Key 01 Press <F1> to Setup This is what happens when I try to turn my laptop on. My battery is faulty, so my charging adapter has to stay plugged in at all times. I would normally power off the computer the right way but i began to feel lazy and i would just plug the adapter out, causing the power to be lost. I believe this contributed to my issue (according to my research). This has been an issue for about four months and i stopped trying to fix it. But, a few days ago, I tried again and instead of that usual error, it said: ERROR0210: KEY STUCK 7D I began pressing random keys to see if any were stuck, then the Windows logo randomly appeared.I was able to use it for a couple of days (I shut it down the correct way). There would be a blank black screen and "-" at the top left corner. But in less than 2 minutes it would disappear and i'd see the Windows logo.  This was all going well until last night, when the charger was accidentally plugged out. I tried turning it back on and i kept getting the initial error message: ERROR0210: Stuck Key 01 Press <F1> to Setup I don't know what to do at this point because I really need to use my laptop. Please give your suggestions.

I had updated the Windows 10 April Update on my Thinkpad X230. I use Bitlocker to encrypt C, D disks. Before update Windows, I suspended Bitlocker function on C, update all newest drivers downloaded from Lenovo for Thinkpad X230 (BIOS, Firmware, ...). After update Windows 10, I can use my laptop in some hours, then I shutdown it. However, from this time, I cannot boot Windows, it only boot on some seconds and automatically turn off. I use USB Windows to go to boot my laptop, then turn off Bitlocker in C drive, and I can boot and use my Thinkpad. Unfortunately, when I turn on Bitlocker again, my Thinkpad X230 cannot boot again. Any idea for me? Please don't tell me turn off Bitlocker.

Hi Sukumar,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that you are getting stuck key error in your Lenovo ThinkPad.
 
Stuck key error means that one or more keys on the keyboard are stuck. It's possible that a liquid spill can also cause one or more keys to electrically "short" causing the error. Inspect the keyboard and check if any keys are mechanically stuck.
 
If you're mechanically handy you can remove the keyboard, inspect any chances of damage or corrosion. Plug it back and see if error is still occurring.
 
Reset BIOS to default settings. Perform Flee Power ? remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and turn ON the computer.
 
If none of the above said helped to resolve your concern, I strongly recommend you to contact our technical support for assistance.
 
Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.
 
Best Regards,

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 :/

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!

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.

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?

Hi Everyone! I have a Thinkpad Yoga 12 and recently I am experiencing a rather serious problem with the machine.If I have a drive in it, it will simply not start the booting process and will freeze on the "press enter to interrupt..." screen. Whenever I remove the disk (SSD) the computer starts and I can access BIOS/Diagnostics/Etc. but when reinserting the SSD everything stops and the computer freezes on start.This problem is very annoying because without a proper boot I cannot update the BIOS or do anything with it at all. Did anyone else experience something similiar?I checked the SSD in a different computer and it works without a problem.

Hanging on startup with a disk inserted would most likely indicate either a bad SSD or a bad SATA control circuit (motherboard).  If the disk is OK, that leaves only one part.

A:Yoga 15 Thinkpad. Boot menu. How do I reach it.

Hey Hi,  I am planning to upgrade my Thinkpad X230s memory to 8GB. I have few questions, it would be a great help if someone can help me.1) Is it better to use 2x4GB configuration or 1x8GB? What are the advantages? (Does Thinkpad X230 support dual channel configuration?)2) CPU-Z shows that my current RAM is running at 1.5 V. Can I put two 4GB RAM running at 1.35V? (Does Thinkpad X230 support DDR3L type memory?)3) What would happen if I use two RAM having different CAS latency? Thanks in advance.
