Preferred Solution: lenovo in a loop after ! update

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 Lenovo Y700 has been suffering from an issue since October of 2016, one which I imagine many people on this forum (or at least those of you who have also purchased this laptop model) are aware of. The issue itself wouldn't bother me, if it wasn't for Lenovo's gross negligence and seeming apathy towards customers with the issue. Here is the story behind my infuriation:I bought the Lenovo Y700-15ACZ laptop back in February from my local Best Buy, at the cost of nearly 900USD (including tax), to replace my old Dell laptop, and up until late October I was relatively satisfied with the purchase. Then Windows sent out their latest updates for the AMD graphics driver. At this time, I had no idea what was going on, so I brought the laptop to Geek Squad, at the same Best Buy from which I bought the computer. They explained to me that the issue was caused by an incompatibility between the built-in motherboard graphics card and the AMD video card, a result of the most recent graphics update at the time. So, I had them roll back the computer to before the update in question was released, and disable all automatic updates. It's a good temporary solution, but as many of us probably know, disabling updates means that security updates, as well as graphics updates, will not install, thus putting my computer at an increased risk of malware infection. So, after three months of leaving my Lenovo update-less, I decided that I've tempted fate long enough, and called Geek Squad to arrange an app... Read more

I had auto update for Windows Vista turned on and at some point it updated this latest update, and when I shut my computer down and restarted it I got into the same loop. I have done some research and found out that this is happening all over the place and Microsoft put out a flawed update. I found a forum with the solution, but you need to get to a command prompt. I can't get there because my HP pavilion only lets me get to one after windows boots? Well vista can't boot because of this loop, ergo I can't get to a command prompt to fix the problem! Microsoft URL for the fix is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949358 but none of the remedies listed on this page will work on mine. SO I am UP a CREEK for NOW. Any suggestions at this point would be greatly appreciated. I am currently using a system utility supplied on my computer to back the whole thing up, but through a USB port it is taking forever.

Thanks.

Hi Topsi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with system restarting.
 
       Try to reset the BIOS to default and check for the issue.

Now access the BIOS menu press F2 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now Click on ?F10? Key to safe the changes that are done in BIOS, restart the computer and check if the issue is resolved.

 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best regards,

Hello everyone,  I bought a y510p about two years ago and for the first year it worked flawlessly then one day it wouldnt start up. What would happen is it would try and boot up and show the Lenovo message then go into the novo boot menu and after 1-2 in that menu it would crash no matter what option was chosen and would keep doing it over and over. It also would only do it if the A/C cord was NOT plugged in. If A/C power was plugged in it wouldnt start at all. I gave up on it for about 9 month and it sat in my closet About 3 days ago i tried it again and it booted up fine no problem, did windows updates, restarted multiple times and no problems until today where it shut down and reverted back to what it did before. Any ideas? I am stumped and believe there might still be life in it.  Thanks!

So Friday, I tried to boot my computer and ended up with an automatic repair loop. The screen reads automatic repair, then goes to diagnosis and gets stuck here for hours on end. I have a Lenovo G50-45 and Windows 8. After trying to do a hard reset, unplugging the AC and pressing the power button and it not working, I used the novo button on the side of the computer. I tried to reset BIOS settings to defaults but it did not work. I then created a recovery drive with a USB key using my brother's computer. Again, I used the novo button, and managed to boot from the recovery drive from there. I tried system restore but it gets stuck on system restore initializing for more than thirty minutes. I tried bcdedit and it did not work. I have tried bootrec up until rebuildbcd and when I come to rebuildbcd, it keeps processing for more than twenty minutes without results. I have tried chkdsk but it tells me that Windows is locked. I refuse to do One Key Recovery because it will bring me back to factory settings (yes I know, I did not think of doing a backup). I was told that System Refresh is not a great idea. I am trying to find a way to repair this problem. I have work to do on this computer and I would like it to be resolved.

So I've had my Lenovo G50-45 for almost a year now. About 6-8 months ago, I installed Windows 10 and shortly after fell victim to the whole "Repairing Automatic Repair" loop. Time passed, I forgot about it and put it off. Sent the laptop off after learning that the motherboard had been fried sometime around late March. Received the repaired laptop in April and it's fine. I'm running Windos 8 but it's fine. I got sketched out by going back to Windows 10 after reading about the plethora of problems that people are running into.A few hours ago today, I got the same Repairing Automatic Repair loop.
 
Three months (maybe even less) of a supposedly brand new motherboard suddenly just gone up out of nowhere.This has to be a joke, right?

Not sure how to escape this infinite loop. It started with me copying the OEM recovery partition from my Ideacentre b540 to an external hard drive to free space on my desktop hard drive. I tested the recovery program and it couldn't locate the recovery drive.

I went ahead and copied the recovery partition back to the desktop hard drive to restore to essentially default settings. I tried the recovery program again but this time got stuck in an infinite loop where I'm told windows can't run the script X:\onekey\main\lrscall.vbs.

I'm thinking when I copied the recovery partition back to the desktop it was formatted with drive letter H instead of X so the path is messed up. I know my windows 8 partition is fine. meaning niot corrupt, but cannot boot to it anymore, the computer keeps trying to boot to recovery

Can someone please help me get out of this loop?

Then i unpluged the charging cable and the computer seem to start up, it brought up the Lenovo logo, then it went straight to Novo button menu, and then everything went black and the computer started booting up on lenovo logo and back to the novo button menu, and it goes on and on, and nothing changes. I had one  chance in the novo button menu, to press Normal startup, and it brought up the automatic repair, and then again it went into the loop cycle again...

My lenonvo (thinkpad) t410 is stuck in startup. I was checking email and I noticed that my screen was freezing up a bit when an error message box came on screen (unfortunately I did not take note of what it said) and my computer began to shut down by itself. I hit the power button to make sure it wouldnt restart and gave it 20 minutes before i went to turn it back on. Now when i try to turn it on, it shows the lenovo splash screen but then goes black and shows the splash screen again, never proceeding to windows. I have spent most of the say looking up possible solutions, but while many people have had similar problems, most other posts involve system recovery options, which do not appear on my screen. It is allowing me to boot into BIOS but I have not been able to find a solution there. Do I need to reinstall Windows? Please help.

It sometimes makes a small vibrating sound which goes away when i give a gentle tap on the computer.  However today i wanted to move my user from my ssd to my seagate after that everything went south. I needed to start fresh again so i started recovery which worked until a while later when it said the recovery didnt work. After that i clicked to proceed to windows. When it restarted i got a bios message saying "Configuration change was requested to clear this computer's TPM(Trusted Platform Module)WARNING: Clearing erases information stored on the TPM. You will loose all created data encrypted by these keys.Press F12 to clear the TPMPress ESC to reject this change request and continue" I pressed F12 because i wanted to recover my computer or it wont recover(in my knowledge).

Hello, I have been using a Lenovo Y510p since the beginning of 2014. It worked perfecly fine till a couple of weeks ago when it suddently turned-off while I was watching a video. From then onwards, it wouldn't start. Novo button or power cycling wouldn't help either. Since it is out of warranty, I took it to Geeksquad to see if they can diagonize the issue quickly but I was said the problem could be deep rooted and it needed thorough trouble shooting. I came home and started disassembling the unit part by part (Take out Hard Disk, Optical Drive, RAM, Wifi Card etc) to see if I could isolate the problem but the laptop simply wouldn't turn on. Suspecting that the mother board could be the problem, I purchased an used motherboard on ebay and swapped the existing one with this and assembled all the components back to their place. This time, when I power on, the keyboard would glow and I can see the heat dissipating fan spinning but it would spin for like 3-4 seconds and then it would stop and the laptop would power off. Then the laptop would start again, the fan starts spinning and stops after 4 seconds and this enters into a loop. All this while, the screen is totally black and doesn't display a thing. F9 or any other buttons are of no use. Novo button is of no use either. The laptop enters into the same loop with Novo button too. Would this mean that my CPU has given up on me? I request your kind help! Thanks,Shyam

Hi,

I'm using "3" Broadband, which doesn't have it's own email, so I am using my Hotmail addresses and download these through the Outlook Connector programme, which is not very satisfactory at the best of times.

This morning when I opened Office Outlook, I got a message saying I had to update Outlook Connector, which I duly did but now it seems to be in a loop and I still get a message to download the update, even though I have done so, so the update has obviously not updated properly.

Without this updatge I cannot read any new emails through Microsoft Office Outlook and I have to go to my Hotmail account.

Does anybody know how to fix this? I have Windows Vista and my firewall is Comodo and my antivirus is Avira.

I've got an issue with my XP machine. I've got a single update that just keeps showing up as an update in a loop. I can't get rid of it. It is showing as successful when I run the update.
XP SP 3
The update in question: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=28608

I've searched online and have done the following per suggestions I found.

1) .NET 2, 3 & 3.5 uninstalled and reinstalled.
2) Searched previous updates for a failed install. No failed instance of a patch found.
3) Tried patching from Windows Update website. Showed successful then showed back up as a necessary patch seconds later.
4) Downloaded the patch and ran. Reported creating a system restore point, then patching. Reported success. After restart, patch shows as needing installed on auto update in the taskbar.

I've installed it through various methods over 40 times now, trying different things in the process. I just can't get rid of it. Any thoughts or assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your time!

So I close everything else down (and I've also restarted the computer several times), then click OK on the above dialog box.

Hello!

I have a Dell Laptop using Vista that is currently in the update "stage 3 of 3 0%" loop. It will restart and come back to the same update screen again and again.
So far I have managed to use System Restore to get myself back to the log on screen and do everything as normal. Whenever I shut down or restart, I encounter the same problem again.

I?ve read that I have to rename/delete pending.xml file but all I get is access denied messages. Tried using Command Prompt to delete it but again, access denied.

I have no idea what to do to stop the loop happening again.
I dont have any Vista install cds, I?ve read most of the sites that promise a fix but so far with no luck.

Hoping someone on this forum knows how to get rid of the problem.

You probably need to revert the pending installs, rather than just delete the pending.xml file.

As windows will not load, all of the fixes I've found online are useless - I have pressed F8 and then attempted to load Windows 7  in safe mode with Command Prompt but it still gets stuck at the same screen.   My guess is I will have to somehow reinstall Windows.   I tried my Windows Boot cd but it doesn't seem to be working (even when loading the dvd from BIOS) - maybe there is another way or a different boot cd I can make.

Hi. I am a BleepingComputer newbie so see my intro if you want but treat me gently. My problem has been all day and started when I had some windows security updates on my computer this morning. When it came to restarting the computer I did the usual and it got to a window saying "Configuring updates 1 of 3 0% complete". This then changes to 2 of 3 and then 3 of three with 0% complete.

This stays there for a while and I get a flash of the "Welcome" screen for less than a second and then the "Shutting Down" screen and it goes through the restart procedure. When it opens, it doesn't get as far as the "Welcome" Screen before I get the update screens again and another cycle of welcome and then closing down.

I have had a look at the BleepingComputer tutorials which seem to cover the problem but so far nothing works. I am unable to restart from a disc because the OEM put the restart options on the hard disc but a quick blast of F6 at the right moment opens the screen and then I use F8 to get to the restart options. Safemode doesn't help because the problem isn't one of starting and it just puts the computer into the same close, open, close loop
I did the same with "Repair your Computer" and the same happened. I have tried the "Last Known Good Configuration" as well but to no avail. The "Debugging Mode" did nothing different either. The test of my memory said all was well.

Hello and too BC!Well, were you able too get into your Safe mode at all? When Windows updates are downloaded and installed, they usually create a restore point of a known good configuration. Basically this will revert you back before the update occurred because it sounded like something nasty happened during that update.Safe mode usually asks you if you would like too restore too an earlier point in time, in this case that is what we want.It should be pretty easy too figure out, but just in case you get lost, heres a guide for you: http://www.pronetworks.org/forums/windows-...ore-t68748.htmlEnjoy your stay at BC, and hope I helped!

Can you please list for me the KBs of each update doing this? It would be a much bigger help than many people realise. Thanks!

Then try this FixIt in NORMAL mode (ie NOT Aggressive Mode): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

Don't do it manually. That is just a big waste of time.

If the issue still occurs, run this tool: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/repair...fix-wu-utility

I am NOT trying to upgrade.

Thanks,

Ello puppets,

I've been having issues where Windows finds updates and when I click Install Updates, it'll say it's preparing to update but then goes back to the same screen I get where it finds updates and wants me to install them.

Updates it wants to install:

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 - October 2012 (KB890830)

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (KB2565063)

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (KB2538243)

Those are listed as Important.
This problem occurred when I installed Visual Studio 2012 then Visual Studio 2010. I'm not sure exactly what happened because it was awhile back... I've been ignoring the issue but now it's bothering me .

been having this serious issue with my pc, its going through this never-ending loop, i had to update my desktop (Its windows 8.1 accer inspiration) and like the update wouldn't work so i shut it down.. when i turn it on now it says could not complete update, then undoing changes 35% then resets.. i cant access main screen, lock screen nothing... When i go to automatic repair by turn off 3x and its just a blank screen!

I dont have a "windows cd" neither do i have the $.. I need a fix thats free, and i just have no idea whats wrong, i can leave it on hours it wont do anything,

Remember i cant access nothing so i cant get to start, the main screen, the login screen NOTHING.. just see the loop..
 

A:Win8 Update LOOP HELP!

i think you have downloaded and installed incomplete or corrupted updates and softwares because of shutting down the pc while it is being installed.
can you get it to the startup repair screen.
try the system restore option.

Recently I installed a new HDD and although it took a while, I eventually got it to work (it is replacing my old one, not working alongside it). The day after when it booted up, it got stuck in a typical 'failure to update' loop. I didn't have any backups or system restore points as the HDD was new and I was somewhat too keen in destroying my old one, so I went into safe mode, uninstalled the updates and disabled updating (a couple of days of trying to get this to work without any of that were involved, but there was just a lot of not working so I'll leave it out) and that solved my problem, until today. I got stuck in the same loop as before today, however when I went into safe mode, it said no updates or even programs had been installed since 02/09/14. This was excluding the drivers for my new Perixx MX-2000II mouse, but I uninstalled the drivers and unplugged the mouse before rebooting normally. The odd part was when I rebooted I was still getting the failure to update loop, despite no updates being present. One more thing to note is the drivers package and the mouse itself work fine in safe mode. Thanks in advance for your help I'll get a hold of the logs in the 'Windows Update Posting Instructions' as soon as my computer will let me. :S

A:Rather odd 'failure to update' loop.

Nevermind. Although the problem still stands, I have a restore point for 02/09/14 so I'll use that. Not sure how to delete the thread but if anyone with the power to finds this, go for it. I won't mark it as solved as it wouldn't surprise me, but once I'm logged on I'll create another restore point just in case so I should still be able to access my computer for those logs or whatever it is that you need.

Hi,
i am facing a problem with the Windows 8 Updates and i cant find a solution to it.

Windows is trying to install the same 10 updates over and over again. Everytime I restart, it installs them, everything looks fine, but on the next boot and restart it installs them again and so on

I attached a Photo of the Windows Update Window, there you can see the Updates.
Does anybody have an idea how to stop this? Any help is appreciated

If you do not intend uninstalling any of them in future, for whatever reason, try running this cmd and see if it helps..

Hello,

First of all I'm not sure if this is in the correct forum...wasn't quite sure where it fit in.

I have Microsoft Automatic Updates enabled. I get a notification that updates are ready to install, in particular it's the Microsoft Virtual Machine. I run the update, and get an error message:

Microsoft VM
This setup will only upgrade over an existing version of the Microsoft VM.

I click OK and it says I need to restart the computer...when I restart, it's telling me I need to install the update again! I've read a couple of posts regarding this, but they seem pretty outdated and don't really apply to my operating system. The Microsoft support site just confused me more...

I'm running Microsoft Windows XP
Media Center Edition
Version 2002
SP2

Thanks for any help anyone can provide,
Glenn

A:Microsoft Vm Update Loop

The Microsoft Java Virtual Machine was discontinued in 2001 in response to the Sun Microsystems lawsuit. Your build is dated 2002, I would delete the update and ignore it.

Has anybody heard of a just released Windows Critical Update for windows 7 causing a computer to go into a loop after installing?
I do backups every night. So Thursday night I went to bed leaving the computer running.
In the middle of the night I got up to discover the computer was “configuring windows” I sat and watched it for a bit.
It would finish “configuring windows” instead of going to the logon window screen it would restart and go back to the “configuring windows”. I shut the computer down.
The next day I did a “system restore” the only restore point was from just before a bunch of Windows Critical Updates
Restored everything was fine.
That evening before going to bed I decided to install the Critical Updates Did that the result was the computer again went into a loop “configuring windows”
Did another system restore to again just before the updates from the night before.
So the problem is in windows recent updates.
Anybody hear of this problem or suggestion who I should contact
 

A:Critical update cause loop

Select to not automatically install and it should bring up a list. Choose half of them and try it. If it loops again, restore, and try the other half. Repeat. The intent is to find which individual update is causing the problem.

I did a new install of Windows 7 on my new SSD. It was working fine until today when some Microsoft updates were supposed to get installed, I got the never ending Windows update message telling me not to shut down the computer. After a while (a couple of hours) i held the power button and the computer will get back to the same stage, could not logon on safe mode, or not even the prompt screen. So i rebooted with my Windows 7 disc in, and manage to do a restore from January 8.
Once logged on, I went to windows update and here on the update history, I can see a lot of failed update (see attached screen shots please). What shall I do to solve this problem please
Thanks

Hi! Can anyone help? My HP is stuck on a blue screen stating that the last update was not completed and that it is undoing changes. It's been this way for days and so far nothing I do will change the screen.
 

A:Endless update loop

If you feel its stuck in a loop close it down and force the advanced boot options. Exit and continue to Windows 8.1 which triggers a reboot with options. System restore is one. A feature to return the laptop to an earlier time.

Hi guys,
 
I've had this problem on Windows 7...check for updates I got the check for updates loop and I now know it's Microsoft screwing with us.
 
I've never had an update problem before until about two months ago.  Today I got the check for updates loop but when I went to click shutdown the update logo was showing...I went back to check for updates and got the loop again.
 
I started to shut down the computer and a massage said...Installing 1 of 16 updates.  When I started windows I got...preparing to configure windows.  What updates...it now seems Microsoft downloads and installs updates when they want and we now have no say on what we want to install and that really sucks.
 
I went to Programs and Features...View installed updates and Microsoft are still installing the nasty updates that no one wants like spyware. I now run a batch file after updates are installed to remove the nasty ones...then I disable updates for several weeks otherwise MS will download the ones I've removed every time I start the computer.  I think this is Microsofts way of punishing us for not going to Win 10.
 
I have GWX control panel and Spybot Anti-Beacon installed which I thought at one time was causing the problem but now I know it's MS...I'm also learning Linux now...hope this helps someone.
