Do you have the restore disk? I recommend formatting and completely reinstalling windows. This should help you. If you need further instructions, feel free to ask.

For the Lenovo to to start in the safe and networking mode, and then not have a display when you attempt to boot it in normal mode, I would follo the these steps:
Boot in networking mode, and then go to the Lenovo site and download the most current display drivers. Since you are able to operate as described above, I would start here first. Once you have successfully downloaded the most current drivers for the video on your system, BEFORE you leave the Lenovo site, check your system against the listed bios upgrades. I believe you may find you need to upgrade your system firmware. If so....download the upgrades you need, and finish the display drivers updates as discussed above, and keep the fresh firmware updates set aside and see if the display driver updates allow you to boot normally.
If so, once you have a normal boot, backup your systems RIGHT away! The next step is to then carefully read the docs about how to update the firmware. Sometimes this will require a floppy drive, if so, you can most likely either pick up a USB one very cheaply or perhaps borrow one. At any rate, make sure your system is backed up fully, and preferable with a restore point, (if you are able with XP?)
Try these measures, if it is successful I would love to hear that from you by way of a testimonial. If you are not - please return here for further assistance. I have additional help for you - but I do not think at this time you have a hardware problem.
Have a great day!!

SOURCE: I cannot exit safe mode
Symptons like these usually are due to corrupted data file that is why you Operating System is not loading correctly. Normally an OS reinstallation is the fix. You can shut down the computer and press the OKR button next to the power with an arched arrow sign from the computer turned off and it will restore the system to the default, however everything is gonna be wiped out but guaranteed you system will be error free.

SOURCE: Lenovo Y410, It does not boot.
Welcome to FixYa
It seems that you are having problems booting to windows. There are a number of steps you can try to fix this issue.
1. boot to safe mode. Start tapping F8 right after the computer turns on. This would cause the system to boot to windows advanced boot menu. Once you see the advanced boot menu then just choose safe mode. If you managed to boot to safe mode then you can perform system restore from here. To run system restore just click on start, all programs, system tools, then click on system restore, once system restore has been launced choose a date when the computer was working fine
2. You can also try to boot to windows recovery environment. to do this keep tapping F8 right after the computer turns on. choose the option "repair my computer". The system would now boot to windows recovery environment. From here you can run startup repair and system restore
3. If none of the above steps work then you can use the One Key Recovery feature of a lenovo Y410. Please note that this would reset your computer to its factory image so this would cause you to LOSE DATA on the system. Before you use this feature make sure that you have a back up of all of you data. Note that the computer must be turned off. Press the NOVO button on the computer. refer to the image for its location on your computer
Pressing this button while the computer is off would launch the one key recovery of lenovo. From here you can restore the system to its factory condition.
Hope this helps
