If you are talking about booting from safe mode, you will have to restart the computer. Right before windows load you have to press F8, F4, DEL (usually), and if that does't work. Research the user guide for the correct function key.

SOURCE: Lenovo Thinkcentre M55e 9632 after installation of

The fact that you installed a new hard disk may be the issue ..If it is a sata hard drive you will need a raid or driver for it ..or something like that ..or just go to bios and select the bus for the hard drive to work in native mode (or ide ) ..and install the operation system ..
If you installed it ..but you also have the other one ..make sure they are compatible ..and also go to bios and select the one with the operation system as first boot device ...
There can be the possibility that your ram memory is not supported well ...make sure even if it fits ..that the value of the frequency written on it is not larger than the one your motherboard supports ..usually it have to be the same or smaller ..if it is larger it may be casing problems ..Usually restarts and blue-screens ..or not booting at all ..
In case you just changed the hard disk ..and the memory ..and you got rid of the other hard disk ..than you need to install the operation system ..make sure you get a boot-able disk ..and install it from scratch ..and if you use a sata hard disk ..try to load the raid driver or the ahci on the start (when the installing system asks for them or says to press a key for to install as 3rd party ) ..or go to bios and disable the raid for it ..and enable it back after inatalling it in native mode.. load driver and restart ..
I basically try to say that your hard disk may need a raid driver for to be seen ..and if it does not have a operation system on ..it needs to be installed.
you may also use the old hdd if it has an operation system on it ..and install windows from it ..but on a new partition on this new hard disk ..after that remove the old one ..or format and use as storage ..

Here i bought LenovoG550..For a longtime i got message "can"t complete the microsoft secuity essentials upgrade installation, Errorcode 0x80070057.


Hi,
That is an error for the security update and seems windows is not letting it update properly on your lenovo.
you can try and do it in safe mode see if it will work from there, or you can disable your anti virus on the machine see if the update will go through.
If not then try in safe mode if still does not work even in safemode then the last option is reinstalling windows on your machine.
You can try and use the One Key Recovery option on your Lenovo, but if you installed a retail version of windows on your Lenovo then that might be the problem.
Try using he retail disc if you bought one or if lenovo provided you a recovery disc then you can use that to reinstall windows back to defaults.
Back up all you personal files first before doing so.
Have a nice day.

My lenovo y410 integrated web cam is not working after installing windows 7 Think driver is not supporting.Any substitute driver is available? how to solve this problem?


Lenovo 3000 Y410 is not designed for windows 7, I don't think that Lenovo will make drivers for windows 7, you can try to install the Vista drivers. here is the link for 32 bit, they did not release any 64 bit drivers for this model. you can download and save the drivers to your computer then right click the installer then click properties, click the compatibility tab then select run this program in compatibility for Vista Service pack 2. If it still doesnt work you can try to run Windows update and hopefully microsoft have some patch for that.
Hope This help.

Use F8 key during initial POST to start in Safe Mode.
If error doesn't allow you to enter windows either you find the think pad blue button for an emergency startup (no manual is available by Lenovo) or you use a Windows installation cd to strt your PC and to proceeed to a windows repair installation (R option ad CD startup)

Have you tried to reset the password. If not try this, restart the PC and keep pressing F8 until you get the OS Choices menu, select "Safe Mode". when safe mode is loaded click on Administrator and It should go to the desktop but this depends if the Administrator account is enabled or it will not work and there are no known programs that can bypass userinit.exe in vista
