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.)

Suddenly when I tried to turn on my laptop (yoga 900, 13ISK), I see the Lenovo logo for few seconds then the screen goes black, and it does not load windows, I tried to use the reset button on the side of the tablet to enter bios settings, the menu flashes for a second and then the screen goes black again. I dont hear any fans running in the back ground. When I click the power button it turns off immediately, I tried to disconnect the battery and connect it again but the problem persists, I cannot access anything to try a hard rest. Any help is appreciated.

I'm trying desperately to recover my system.  The system will not get past the startup logo and looping symbol.  I have entered bios and turned off fast boot.  I have created a bootable W-10 stick and the bios recognizes it.  It is first in boot order.  On power up the logo appears then the screen turns black forever.   I have also disconnected the battery and reconnected after several hours.  I have pressed the NOVO reset hundreds of times.  Thankyou anyone who can help.

I have a Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro-1370 that will power on, they keyboard lights up, but the screen only displays the Lenovo logo.  The system does not boot further or give any error message.  I can leave it on until the battery dies and it will just sit on the Lenovo logo and go no further.  None of the key combinations for going into the BIOS are responsive.  I have tried several variations of hitting the reset button on the side based on suggestions I have found on the forums.  Does anyone know what could be the issue?  Is the motherboard shot?  If so, can a replacement board be ordered?  The unit is well outside of warranty.  Thanks,Wayne

In order to follow a guideline provided on this forum, I went into BIOS and pressed Fn+F9 keys to set BIOS to default settings. After that used Fn+F10 to save and exit. The laptop was supposed to restart but it is not going farther than Lenovo logo, it is trying to boot windows and after a few seconds shuts down and automatically tries again but doesn't go farther than logo. It seems that a certain setting changed in BIOS that doesn't allow windows to start. See below the default settings of my BIOS now. Please help!

I have a T450s, bought it one and half years ago. I rarely turn off the laptop, mostly just close the screen. I guess it just goes to sleep.About two weeks ago, I opened the screen, it stuck at the logo screen, sometimes passed the logo screen, but still stuck at a totally blanked black screen. It's been all the same ever since. I'm very busy with work lately, so i've been using my work loptop for everything. Now I want to get this fixed. Does anyone have the same issue that can help me?

Two ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen2 TabletPCs will successfully boot into Windows 10 just fine from a hard poweroff.  But once in windows, if i choose Restart, it will hang at the "LENOVO" BIOS  level boot up logo with "To interrupt normal startup, press Enter".   Stuck at Lenovo BOOT BIOS initialization screen, right before handoff to the Operating System. "To interrupt normal startup, press Enter" At this point, pressing ENTER does not work.CTRL-ALT+DEL causes the screen to change shade for a moment, but effectively does nothing.Changing the UEFI settings to diagnostics results in black screen.Holding the power switch to force a poweroff, waiting a few moments, and then powering on results in a successful windows startup.  DevMGMT.msc does NOT see bluetooth and there is "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)" entry under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".  I have run all automatic updates via "Lenovo Vantage" and the manual TPM update.   I can boot into the firmware setup and have had it revert to factory defaults and reverted to factory defaults for all security settings.   I even tried the Win10 repair startup problems, but it says it cannot fix this.

It looks to me like you have a faulty hardware issue or a serious driver issue. Try the Lenovo recovery to put the device back to the factory windows install. If that fails, I would think you have a hardware issue.

Hi Folks, Good day. We have some issues with our purchased Lenovo S500 PCs. As the title says it would stuck up on Lenovo logo during post and cant proceed on the loading windows part. This is a known issue on other models but can't really find an exact fix to this issue.We are using a dual monitor setup(vga & dp) on these units. We really need to have a permanent solution to this issue as it becomes a hassle for the people who are using those units.Product: Lenovo S500   Here are few suggestions we've tried but to NO avail.1. Load default setting on Bios2. Update Bios3. Update OS4. Enable Multiple Display on Bios5. Bios(trying between Legacy and UEFI)6. Reinstall OS7. Update DriversWorkaround: Power-On the PC using a single monitor. We unplug the Display port then turn on the PC. When the login screen appears, we insert the display port again. This workaround isn't advisable anymore as we don't want our agents to crawl under the table every time they turn on the pc.As we are a HIPAA compliant company, agents are forced to shut down their pc after each shift. Best Regards,Mike

I just got my X1 carbon today. The major problem is that the CPU is overheating. It can easily reach to 90 degrees or even higher. (I already used XTU undervolted the cpu) The fan is always on and a little bit noisy if using the laptop even for performing some simple tasks such as open a web. It will turn so hot that i won't even able to reset my hand on the right side of the keyboard above the air outlet (the area next to "enter"). Since it is a new system, i need to restart it after updating and installing some apps. The system stuck at Lenovo logo screen during restarting a few times already. I think it was due to overheating. Long press the power bottom and restart it will solve the problem.

Hello, Lenovo Ideapad stuck when booting at the Lenovo logo. No beeps. Not responding to F1, F2, F10, F12 or Del keys being tapped at boot.Power button and keyboard light up. Tried booting from USB using a bootable stick - didn't happen, boot still stops at the Lenovo logo. I'm familiar with laptops and their innards - have tried removing and reseating RAM (and using individual modules vs both) - still stuck at the logo when trying to boot. Removing both gives me a blank black screen at boot - no logo.Replaced RAM modules - this machine has two hard drives - both bootable; tried removing one, then the other. Still stuck at boot logo. Removed both, still stuck at boot logo. I've prodded at nearly all the contacts inside - all seem to be intact; the motherboard is definitely receiving power. Any suggestions would be appreciated !!!

Okay, I so also looked up whether the BIOS could be 'hard reset' - assuming there is a corruption in the config; and there isn't much help online. But if anyone knows how, please drop in a comment !Now, somehow, after reattaching all parts and discovering an old microSD card in the SD adapter - inside the laptop's slot - and then removing it, my laptop is booting again !Is this what could have caused it? I am not familiar with laptops (EFI or BIOS based) trying to boot from a memory slot. Or perhaps my prodding and putting it back together did something, Keeping this thread open in case anyone would like to weigh in on the points above!

Hello. I have 3 year old Lenovo Y50-70 laptop. Couple days ago i decided to finally upgrade to SSD. The old HDD was 1TB WD 10SPCX and i replaced it with 480GB Kingston UV500 SSD. When I swapped the drives and tried to boot, I was stuck on completely black screen with only Lenovo logo. This ocured when I tried to enter Novo menu using Lenovo Novo button as well. I tried to put back the old HDD and it was working normally. When i pulled out both disks and tried to boot only from bootable USB this problem did not occur. Then i tried to plug the SSD to some HP desktop computer and I was able to install windows there and boot on the desktop normally. So I put the SSD back into my laptop and again i was stuck on the logo. However, because Windows was now installed, I was able to boot after being stuck on the Lenovo logo for some time. Then I tried to change the SATA controller mode. I tried both Compatible (IDE) and AHCI modes and installed fresh windows using both settings but still I was stuck on the cursed Lenovo logo. The lag lasted ~1 minute when usind the IDE and 6-7 minutes using AHCI setting.  My bios version is the same as the version available for donwload on my laptop drivers page (V3.03). Using bios options to restore to defaults or OS optimized defaults did not make any difference. All the drivers are installed and up to date, though I think this is irrelevant as the problem first occured before any OS was present.  Could it be t... Read more

Right, you mentioned it turned blue with a sad face, that is a Blue Screen of Death (or proper term is Kernel bugcheck) which indicates something has gone wrong.

A:Lenovo Ideapad 110 With AMD Radeon R5 stuck on Black screen after showing logo and preparing repair

 Hi there, Eddie                       -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Automatic Repair usually kicks in if there's a problem loading up the files that's required to start Windows. If the repair was interrupted and the screen just goes into a black screen then there's most likely a hardware component that's malfunctioning.
 
To check, try to:

Boot into the BIOS by pressing the OneKey Recovery button

  - Link to picture
 
If successful, set the following settings in the BIOS:
 
Security Tab:
Secure Boot = Disabled
 
Boot Tab:
UEFI = Disabled or Legacy
Boot Mode = Legacy
Boot Priority = Legacy First
Exit Tab
 
OS Optimized Defaults = Other OS or Disabled
 
When done, press F10 (or Fn+10) to save and exit and try to boot from your Windows CD
 

If you're successful in booting from the Windows Disc, see Step 1 to Step 2 of this guideon how to proceed in fixing the issue.
If the problem remains, consider re-installing Windows by pressing the OneKey Recovery button and choose System Recovery

  - Link to picture
 
In an event that the recovery fails, I recommend you contact Lenovo and report the issue as you may need to send the unit for service.

My Lenovo Yoga 2 has some very weird issues that is preventing me from using it. Here's a list of the issues I've noticed:- When I hover over the power icon, there is no option to restart, shutdown or sleep. This only occurs randomly.- I no longer have internet connection. A red "x" is on the connection icon. I'm not able to put it into airplane mode either.- Cannot sign in. When I input my password/pin, it'll load and then restarts. But when I do get in, there is a black screen and I get an error and it restarts.- When left on the sign-in screen, it'll restart by itself- The initial loading screen is longer than usual.The last thing I remember doing before this happened was ripping CDs using an external optical drive. I'm not tech savvy so I probably won't know much terminolgy about computers but I'll do some quick research when needed.

It doesn?t even show the Lenovo logo, and when I connect a USB mouse, the mouse flashes its red light for a split second and dies as well.

I have tried connecting to a TV with HDMI cable (nothing) and replacing the boot drive with another older one (same problems as before).

Someone I know gave me their Lenovo G50-45 laptop to fix it. The issue it is having is that when it is powered, it takes a long time to get to the Lenovo logo screen. It was reported to take as long as 30 minutes or more. Interestingly, I opened it up to clean it up if needed and disconnected multiple parts. After reassemblying it properly (suprisingly not breaking or missing anything), I turned it on and it immediately showed the Lenovo logo screen. That suprised me. However, this did speed did not last. After multiple shutdowns and reboots, it has started to take longer and longer to get to the Lenovo logo screen. I also noticed that it seems to be restarting multiple times prior to it showing the Lenovo logo screen. I can tell by seeing the Power LED turning off every once in awhile and then turns on a second or so later. I haven't timed it yet to see if there is a definite pattern. But it does seem somewhat random in how many times it does this. With 8GB of RAM, it works fairly well after it gets to the Lenovo logo screen and it boots into Windows 10.

Yet there were no issues that it could detect (except for Bluetooth not being connected to a device). At this point, I am certain it is either a hardware issue or a firmware issue.

I don't know if it auto-updated or something, but now I can't get it to do anything. I've tried various combinations of holding down the power button and hitting the "Novo" key, but the only two things I can make it do is power completely off or show me this screen.

hi nasirraza2009,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
When the machine gets stucked on the lenovo logo, can you boot into the BIOS (by pressing F2 or Fn+F2) and check if the HDD is detected
   - Link to picture
 
In addition, If the machine boots again into Windows again, to un a diagnostic on the HDD to verify its health.
 
  - Lenovo Storage Test or
  - HD Tune.
    - http://www.hdtune.com/faq_1.html
 
If you're unable to run a diagnostic on the drive then I recommend you contact lenovo and report the problem as there's likely an issue on the HDD / HDD's connection to the motherboard (or other internal component).

Hello everyone, Since about five days ago, everytime I turn on my laptop, it starts normally. It goes into the black-background lenovo startup with a white loading symbol. Then, after maybe 5 rotations of the dots in the loading symbol, it freezes. It does not progress into starting up. At this point, I usually turn off my laptop by holding the power button. If I don't turn it off myself, it turns off automatically a few minutes later.  Every 2 or 3 times I turn on my computer, instead of the loading symbol, it turns into a "Preparing Automatic Repair" mode. I have seen the loading symbol for this mode but then it disappears and nothing happens and it turns off automatically after ten minutes or so. I've seen the same solution that help others with the same problem which is to take out the DVD from the laptop. I did this and my problem has not changed.  edit: g500 to g505

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.
