Hi Sarah,
When you boot up the laptop and the Lenovo splash screen shows, press F8 and it will give you the option to boot into "Safe Mode"

Hope this helps:)
Thanks,
Gary

SOURCE: lenovo y510 wont start in normal mode (xp)

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!!

The same model Lenovo can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your Lenovo, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true

Unfortunate that there is no update for whatever audio problem you are having, and you cant change what you have now because laptop components are permanently installed.

Please help!!! How do I boot my Lenovo into Safe Mode? The F8 key doesn't bring anything up. I do have a "one key recovery," which takes me into a "setup utility" but nowhere is there "safe mode." I'v


You might try going back into your setup and disabling Secure Boot, and look for "verbose" or "full" mode for startup - this will print the entire startup sequence on boot - valuable for troubleshooting hardware and some software issues.

As for the ability to boot to Safe Mode - the process is different for different OS - you can find detailed step for starting in Safe Mode in Win8/8.1 here

I have tried pressing f8 and that is not getting me to safe mode.


The boot process is really fast for Windows 8, so the F8 key may not register. For Windows 8, open search and type "startup". Click "Change Advanced Startup Options". Select Safe Mode and reboot. You will still need to select Safe Mode during the boot process.

Keyboard problems


You can probably find an on-screen keyboard in your finder. Keyboards commonly glitch out when running your computer a lot. Turn it on and off to see if the problems is temporary, if not, you can just get a USB keyboard

Powering on problems


This could be a software problem. If you added anything or got an update. Try powering it off and then start it again and when it starts select safe mode by pressing F8 immediately BEFORE WINDOWS starts. Then select restore and see if it lists any dates that you can set it back to that you know it worked in.
