Preferred Solution: BCD Error on IdeaPad U310

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 ideal as u310 running win 7 suddenly gives an error after login. A pop-up appears saying windows explorer encountered an error and cannot load. Next all desktop icons disappear as well as the taskbar, leaving nothing but the desktop wallpaper. I have no recovery disc, and system restore doesn't work either. I cannot boot into safe boot. Does anyone have a solution?

I have a U310 4375 i3 Ideapad which powers up but does not display POST or boot into Windows.The screen is backlit but I don't get a Lenovo splash screen.When I use the Novo button I get the boot option box but whichever option I select results in a black screen.I suspect a bad bios but I can't get into the bios or boot menu so I can't flash it.Is there a way to flash the bios without being able to see the bios or change the boot order? Thanks, jhugh.

I have a Levovo Ideapad U310, PN 59351642, 13.3" Ultrabook. When the power button is pressed, I can hear the CPU fan was on but there was nothing on the screen. I verified that the disk is working. I can attach the disk to my external drive and it is working file. I suspect that the mother board is bad. But I need to confirm this before ordering a mother board replacement. There are other components such as the LCD screen or the CPU itself might be bad. When I turned on the power, I tried to enter the BIOS set up utility by pressing Fn-F2 but there was still nothing on the screen and there was no sounds or beeps. I have tried the "onekey rescue" but this also did not work. Are there any other tests that I can perform to be certain that the mother board is bad and all other components are still okay? Any helps / suggestions are greatly appreciated. Ken

A:Ideapad U310 Motherboard Problems

Same here. Mobo is faulty. Symptoms are- press power and caps lock flashes once- front battery light is on and funtions normally (flashing amber for charging, white for charged)- front power light is white, as normal- power on button is on, as normal- nothing on screen, no backlight, completely black My part number ends with a 7, meaning i5 CPU - so it's not a CPU specific issue but a common issue between models, meaning motherboard or something on the board like the GPU.

Howe are you?I accidently deleted factory installed Windows program preinstalled on my computer.is there anyway you can send me a link to down load? it is Windows 7 and I can provide serial# if necessary.

A:Ideapad U310 factory reset

Hi kimuh72 ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community.
 
Keep your Serial number confidential.
Did you clean install windows reformatting the entire harddrive before or just an in place install?
Did you manage to create a recovery media before?
 
The factory image resides on a hidden partion on the harddrive and can only be restored on the depot facility.
 
No harm on trying if it is still working right .
Turning off your pc , then press the Novo key (page 28) ,
System recovery on the menu
 
You may order your Recovery media set by calling support  
Check your warranty coverage specially if the harddrive broke for repair . 
Else,  you can download windows 
OEM product key would be the challenge , you can try using tools to extract it if needed.
For the drivers needed , its all free for download. 
 
Hope this post helped you and gave you idea to proceed.
Just reply back and let us know how it goes. 
 
Regards,

Hey everyone, I got a new ideapad U310 this weekend. I'm very happy with it, accept for the fan. It seems to go fast for no reason. I found some old topics on this forum, one with a bios update, but it does not seem to work anymore on the current bios version unfortunately. Can anyody please help me? The fan noise is very annoying and after 2 days of working with the ideapad I rather have it turned off to get rid of the noise than continue working on it.

Hi all,I've been having some sound issues with my Ideapad U310 for a while now, and any help would be appreciated. Initially, no sound came out of the speakers, but if I plugged heaphones into the audio jack I could still hear sound through the headphones. Unfortunately, now there is no sound from either the speakers or the headphones. To address this, I've tried disabling sound enhancements through playback devices. I've tried installing the latest drivers for Intel Display Audio and Conexant Smart Audio HD. I've also attempted deleting these drivers (both together, then one at a time) and then installing manually/letting Windows install them. Unfortunately the nearest factory reset goes back to a time when the sound was not working. None of this appears to work. I'm wondering it whether it could be a hardware issue, since the USB drive next to the audio jack does not work either and what with the headphones initially still working. I'm running Windows 10, 64 bit. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

A:DISPLAY PROBLEM Ideapad U310 Touch

Hi DILEMMA123,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As I understand that you are facing issues with your Ideapad U310 touch display, however when you power on the unit there is power but  no display and the screen remains black.
 
Here are the troubleshooting steps that you may try
Please do try these troubleshooting steps that may help. - Start by doing a hard reboot, remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds then try booting it up again. - If this will not work, do test the AC adapter if it's working properly. Remove the battery and power the laptop with just the AC adapter connected and see if it will boot up or not. do also try a different AC adapter that has the same voltage and see if it will work or not. - Proceed with reseating the RAM's if trying a different AC adapter will not work, remove them all for couple of seconds then put them back in making sure everything is seated properly. - If it will still not work, connect an external monitor and see if you'll get any display from it. If there's a display on the external monitor that could mean that the problem is the built in display.  - But if there's still no display on the external monitor that means the problem lies in the motherboard.
In addition, here are further service centers that you can also check
I hope the above information helps.

Hello Lenovo,I'm a business management student from India.I purchased Lenovo Ideapad U310 Touch model this May from the US (through Amazon) and have been using it without any issues till the last month. Last month I noticed that the hinge had developed tension and there was additional pressure on the lid or the screen area while closing. I thought it would be a routine issue and took it to my college's hardware repair center, but they suggested I handle the issue via Lenovo Support as it required opening the laptop.When I checked Lenovo support through customer care (India), I was told that the U series is not covered by International warranty. But I checked if the Lenovo service center would still have a look at the issue, to which I was told that it would be chargeable. I thought it was fair enough and took the laptop to the service center in Jamshedpur this afternoon.To my utter disappointment, the technician was unable to open up the area near the screen (where the problem was supposedly), but he also got the screen cracked while trying to. Now I'm left with a laptop that cannot be used as even though the screen display is intact, the touch sensors detect screen touch near the cracked area and keep the cursor rooted to that point. Also, the issue with the hinge could also not be fixed. All to add to the woes, I will have to manage a few days (don't know how many) without a laptop and also shell out the expense from my pocket!Now my question is, will the screen for Ideapad...

Hello, I have had a U310 Touch for over three years now and I have recently discovered that after the upgrade to Windows 10 the BIOS is now nonexistant. When I run the command prompt to identify the BIOS it is blank where it should show which version I have. When pressing the NOVO button I receive the option screen to boot to BIOS or Boot Management screen but no matter what option I select the OS boots regularly. Is there any known solutions for this.

hi dharamc,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Have you tried checking this issue under the BIOS mode.
  Power ON the computer and start hitting F2.
 
If the problem is visible under BIOS, then don't mind the driver as the problem might be the GPU or the LCD screen.
  to isolate the issue further you can use an external monitor.
 
If the problem is not visible under an external monitor, then you have a problem with the GPU
 
Let us know your findings
Cheers!

I have just purchased a U310 Ideapad runnning windows 10 home, the first thing I did was take an image of the hard drive of the device in its state as just purchased ie without setting up the device or booting into the OS. I then proceeded to setup the device and all was well, I removed a lot of the bloatware but for some reason restored the saved image I had previously taken back onto the device obviously over writing the partitions which were there originally. Now OKR fails to find the original factory image, when I select the restore from initial backup option I get the message 'the program cannot restore the system partition because its structure is incorrect. You may have to recreate the partition to continue.' I am sure it is some easy fix to one of the partitions or something as I couldn't have done that much of a change, has anyone any ideas ?

And I cant be left without a laptop right now (linux booting from usb isnt an option. But I know theres ssd in this computer for caching purposes, can I anyhow use that ssd to install OS for a while? Problem is I cant access windows since hdd is broke (formated the harddrive in hopes of it to start working anyways), and booted linux or some partitioning tool like gparted doesnt detect the SSD. Still its there in bios boot options (ATA SSD1).So my question would be, Is there any way making SSD visible to some standalone formatting tool, and using the drive for installing os? edit: When trying to install debian the drive also doesnt appear.

Hopefully this is not in a thread somewhere else, I've tried to find one (believe me, cause I'm desperate..).
So in the middle of me writing my master thesis, my computer just decided to die on me two days ago. Luckily, I haven't been that stupid so I've got backups of everything concerning my thesis, but as you can imagine it is not a dream scenario to suddenly not have a computer at all.
 
Anyways, to the issue:
 
So what happened is this.
1. In the middle of writing a blue screen comes up, saying that there has been a problem. A sad smiley face "" came up (I thought to myself that this can't be true. And then it said (translated from Swedish): "A problem has occured on the computer. It needs to be restarted." Something about information about the occurrence being collected.. "..afterwards a restart will take place automatically."
 
It then added: "If you want more information you can search for this issue online later: KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR
 
It then restarted after some 30 minutes.
 
2. It started as normal (allthough a little slow), but then when I logged in almost none of my programs started. Any folder cannot be opened more than 15-20 seconds before it freezes a little bit and then just discontinues "explorer"/the folder and I'm back on the startscreen. Also, WIFI cannot be found whatsoever. Not that I cannot find WIFI, but it seems as if the actual WIFI on the computer just does not work. Or more like it doesn't even exist.... Read more

Here's more info on the KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR:  http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html#0x0000007A
Particularly, have a look at the Usual Causes section near the top.
This is often a hardware problem - so start with these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html
I'd start with the hard drive tests - but that's just a guess on my part.
 
Then, Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis:  http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location. (By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop)
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.

Hello, I purchased a U310 Touch about 15 months ago that is no longer under warranty. Every time I try and boot the machine I receive no response from the machine. The power light turns on, the fan spins, the HDD turns on but the screen never displays anything. Even when I close the clamshell the machines power button stays lit and won't shut off unless I kill the power by holding down the power button. My troubleshooting steps have been:Reset RAMUnplug battery from motherboardWait for battery to completely drainBoot with HDMI monitor to see if anything displays (nothing would, so LCD panel should be good) With all of these, I cant get the machine to fully function. It feels like the machine is in total sleep mode, I feel like it needs a new motherboard. With my experience with lenovo I feel like this will be the last machine I ever purchase from them, this is unacceptable for a laptop of this age.  Does anyone have any similar situations? If so did you purchase a new motherboard and was it good to go? I'm very comfortable with ripping machines apart since I used to work on a help desk. I would hate to spend $100 on a part and waste all that time if it wont fix the issue.  Any help is greatly appreciated.Thank you.

A:U310 Touch Won't Turn On

Hi overtheborder and welcome to the community,
 
What OS are you running?  Maybe two things you can try depending on the OS.
 
Remove the hard drive and see if it boots to the bios.
 
Try booting a usb flash drive with linux.
 
Regards,
Dave

Hello!

I've been having trouble with my Lenovo Ideapad U310 (running Windows 8.1) for quite some time now. Generally, it occurs once I try to reawaken the laptop after having had it on Sleep mode - the laptop freezes and then eventually the blue screen of death appears. I've been reading around the subject ever since it began, and I've tried enabling a hybrid sleep but no luck! I've tried updating all drivers but Lenovo is, quite franky, a bit rubbish at this. The error makes it a real pain to use my laptop at university etc, so I'm hoping someone can interpret the attached dump files for me!! I've only attached the last two but if you think more are needed, please let me know, as well as any other system details! ]

Cheers xo

Hi Tracy,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Please perform the below steps:
 
Hold power button down to turn laptop off.
Unplug, and remove battery. Hold down power button for ~ 30 seconds. Re-plug, without battery and see if you can boot to bios setup. (F1 or F2 key at Lenovo screen) If so, shut down again, and replace battery. Boot and see what windows does. And post the details of your laptop, model, and OS. (Operating system)
 
I hope the above information helps.
 
Regards,
Shashi

Lenovo is investigating reports of U310 Touch devices experiencing hardware issues with hinges and the screen becoming separated from the lid or bezel.

A:Re: U310 Touch Hinge

I purchased a Lenovo U310 Touch last May and it has been working wonderfully until recently.  I've noticed in the last few weeks that every time I open or close the lid, the hinge makes a loud cracking noise and pops off at the ends. I can press the hinge cover back into place, but it just continues to pop off every time I open/close it. I contacted Lenovo Support about the issue, and even though my machine is still under warranty, they will not fix it without charging me because they have no proof I didn't break it myself (which I find absolutely ridiculous; I haven't dropped or damaged it in any way, and if you look at the computer you can clearly see it is otherwise in perfect condition.)That being said, has anyone else experienced this problem with the U310? Does anyone have any suggestions to fix it? I am concerned that it will just get worse and eventually affect my display.
