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.)

Hi coucoune1633 ,


Welcome to the Lenovo Community.

To enter the BIOS , turn off the pc and use the Novo key (item1 page12) to power on .
Novo menu would appear offering BIOS set up (for changing boot options etc. )
System recovery option from one key recovery initial back up would delete everything and restore to factory defaults.

About booting to safe mode:
Since starting with Windows 8 and up , usual F8 on boot is deeply embedded on the recovery making it hard to access.


If Windows cannot boot to a viable stage for to access advance recovery menu :

1. Shift + F8 works on some system , do it at same time you see the lenovo splash screen repeatedly.

2. Forcing recovery mode on windows 8 : turn on then suddenly turn off pressing the power button , then on and off again for 2-3 attempts , Turn on and see if recovery screen would show up for the advance option.

3. Some system have F11 / F12 on BIOS to launch the recovery / boot option

4. Using a bootable media ( USB rescue image often useful for repair / back up , using Windows media creation tool )
If Windows 8/10 does not start: (using the command line)
How to boot into Safe Mode from the Windows 8/10 installation media or recovery USB flash drive.

Take time to review the steps and highlighted articles.

Hi, recently my wifes Lenovo Z585(AMD APU and GPU) got the superb Windows 10 1803 update and rendered it useless. With Rufus I created a bootalbe ISO based on 1803, downloaded with Microsoft Media Creation tool.I managed to  reinstall it(MBR Partition scheme), but under  installation the screen was completely black! Only managed to read the screen with a flashlight.  After boot, Win10 installed KB4284835 update which was supposed to fix the black screen issue. It did not. Just got worse. It won't even boot now. Tried to boot from a USB Windows 7 ISO. Still have the black screen, barely visible only with my phones flash.Now I removed the HDD and USB stick, but it still can't go to BIOS. If I remove AC Power and battery, sometimes after 30-60 minutes it boots and I can enter BIOS, or install Windows, but always goes back to back screen. Is this an issue with the notebook, or Windows? I don't know how to solve it now. BIOS version is 60CN97WW, the newest as far as I know. Can someone help, please?

A:Lenovo H 50-55 Bios password suddenly appears when trying to enter bios. I don't know it.

my guess is that your cmos battery died and it wants you to set day/time.  There is no backdoor password.  The choices are remember the PW or replace the motherboard.

Hi. I have an Ideapad 700-15ISK which does not show the BIOS or Boot Menu after pressing Novo recovery button or Fn-F2. I'd like to install Ubuntu, but my Installation is not working. So there is no Windows anymore. My HDD encryted with unknown Pssword but I can not redo the installation because I can not boot from anywhere but Grub. From there I can only goto System Setup. It reboots but never enters BIOS. I tried with the recovery button. There was a Menu appearing with the items Normal Boot, Boot Menu, Recovery and something els. Whatever I do, I can not enter BIOS. So what can I do?

It sounds like you might be running windows 10.  Easiest is to boot into windows 10 and then force a complete shutdown.  Hold the shift key while you are powering off.  You can get more time at startup to interrupt.

For your Y500 laptop , you may check your manual  . 
You may turn off the computer first and use the Novo button (number1 page 7) to turn it on. 
It would offer the Novo menu for BIOS set up

However regardless if I am typing a search in google or working in Word I can tap the keys 10 - 20 times before they begin to work. Well they are acting up again.  And before I drive 200 miles back to Best Buy I was hoping someone here could help me with this. Thank you

Hello my friends ! A time ago i bouhgt two Lenovo ideapad 100 14 IBY (FreeDos Version) and install Windows 10 on it with UEFI and GPT Partition Table. All works fine until i want to play around with Linux and install UBUNTU Mate in UEFI on one of them.

There was no UEFI ESP and GPT Support since i install UBUNTU and the Bios Menu looks like that:Bios Entries on a blank DiskBootingThe Disk is Blank there is no ubuntu on there (Don't know waht the EFI Entries are no Hardware is connected).

A:Cannot Enter to Bios Setting in Lenovo B570e !

Hi.Is Windows 8 installed on your machine, or is it running through a USB device? If 8 is installed on your machine, then make sure you do a complete shut down of your machine. To improve boot times, Windows 8 does a hybrid boot, meaning it keeps certain things running. To do a full shut down of the system, you can open Command Prompt and type "shutdown /s /t 0" (without the quotes.) This will do a full shut down (cold restart). It seems whenever you are rebooting/shutting down, it is only doing a warm restart which will skip BIOS.Let me know if I can assist you further,Adam

Good day and welcome to the community.Sorry you're having difficulty.
Since you can't get into Windows to (re)start the recovery/restore process, you might need to do so from the Boot Menu as described on page 23 of the user guide: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_yoga_11_ug_v1.0_may_2012_english.pdf
 
I've never seen or used a Yoga 11 / Windows RT model, but you could try pressing Fn+F12 when you see the Lenovo boot splash screen to see if you get the Boot Options menu described. I don't know if you'd be given any options to retain any files or settings from this kind of restore/recovery, so please use caution.
 
Hope this helps you a bit.Regards.

During installation it asked me to format the entire format as it did not recognize the GPT partition. Accordingly without thinking twice I erased the entire HDD and installed Windows 7. Now I am unable to enter into BIOS

Things I have tried:
Tried with F2, F1 and Delete keys while booting
Tried removing the battery and booting while pressing the above keys individually
Tried removing the battery and adapter, held the power button for 1 minute
Tried removing the battery and held the power button for 1 minute while the adapter was plugged in
Tried pressing F12 and going to the APP MENU but I can only see "Diagnostic Splash" Nothing else and in that diagnostic splash screen I see that the System BIOS is "shadowed"
How can i gain access to BIOS so I can disable UEFI and install Win 7 and Ubuntu side by side

Hello i have problem entering bios on my e531. Computer boots into windows and works just fine. But when i try to enter bios, by pressing F1 at boot I can hear 1 beep(as normal lenovo laptops) and then nothing, just black screen.Even if i try f12 the same problem. It seems to that computer enters bios(if i press f10 to save and then enter computer reboots), but i can see only black screen. tried complete shutdown (**bleep**+power off)->same thingtried with external display->same thingtried with bios reset by removing cmos battery->same thing I have windows 10 installed;tried with advanced boot menu, but it has missing boot to uefi option. Bios version is the lastest

I just want to ask what happened to my Lenovo H30 Slim Desktop.When I plug the cord, it automatically turns on.But it can't boot to Windows OS. It keeps restarting.There is no display on the monitor, just restarting.Sometimes, it shows the loading screen, but then again, it will restart.However, can enter BIOS, as if there's nothing wrong (it will not restart, etc.) I recently updated the BIOS before this happened. And I see that on the operating system on the BIOS File, it says Windows 8.1. I tried booting Windows 10 and Windows 7 from USB, but no luck. I've done these things:1. Swapped Memory Modules2. Removed All Peripherals (HDD, Connectors, etc.)3. Configure BIOS on all possible options (Secure Boot Off, EUFI or Non-EUFI, etc.)4. USB Boot (Windows 7, 8.1, 10)5. Clear CMOS (Via Jumper and Battery)What I did was update the BIOS to 2016 version. However, I used the American Megatrends Utility and Unchecked Capsule something, because it makes error, and I can't update.Please view my video.https://youtu.be/IsF__WINsPQ
