That could be just a Boot Bios settings. Check that you are starting from the HDD, untick any boot option you do not need like showing the logo or the boot menu for x seconds.

I am locked out of my lenovo it only reads the name and tells me to hit enter if i want to bypass normal startup then it goes into the boot menu.

It sounds as if the hard drive in your machine has lost the ability to boot the machine up. If you can boot from a bootable CD/DVD or bootable USB drive if these options are available from the boot menu, then this confirms the hard drive has problems. Try using the "Lenovo button" just to the right of the Power button to see if you can return the computer to previous settings the worked. Be wary though as choosing the "restore to factory settings" option will lose all the data on the hard drive, and should only be used if your data is backed up properly, or in utter desperation.

Get out safe mode

During the boot up, press F5 for a boot menu, or press F8 for an interactive boot. Either way you will get a scrolling screen of loading device drivers and such so don't be alarmed. After that completes you should be at a menu where you can select a "'normal boot". Let it load and finish, then reboot pc to see if it's operating normally.

Can't get the safe mode

It's usually F8 or F5, press alternatively those two keys during the first second of the boot. If that doesn't work try with an external keyboard...

'blank sceen appear on my lenovo ideapad S10 but lenovo and the windows manage to appear after tunning it on and blank afterward

Hi licah,
It seems that your computer is not booting into windows properly at all.
You mentioned you see Lenovo and windows appear then the screen goes Blank afterwards, you can try to Boot directly into the Hard Drive manually just to get everything working or I mean Booting up again but this is a small shot from what you are experiencing but is also worth the try.
turn your S10 machine OFF then turn it back ON and keep on tapping f12 on the keyboard you should see Boot menu on the list Select HDD then press enter this should boot into the Hard Drive, if it does not then you may need to send the system back to Lenovo for a possible reinstallation of windows or on most time we also have the Hard Drive replaced in many cases.
I hope that this Helps.
Have a nice day,

Lenovo laptop is not able to start since it tells that no bootable connections - insert bootable and press any key


Follow these steps below.

1. Turn the computer on.
2. Keep tapping F12 after pressing the power button.
3. Advance Boot Menu will come up.
4. Using the arrow keys, select HDD as the device to boot from.
5. Press Enter.
6. If the computer boots up normally, we fixed the issue.

If not, it means that the computer no longer detects the HDD. It needs to be reseated and after reseating the HDD it should boot up normally. If still the computer cannot boot, then, replace the HDD as it already has gone bad.

My lenovo t60 screen goes black 15 seconds after

Hi, try to boot into safemode, turn your system on then keep on tapping F8 to get the windows advance Menu screen, select safemode.

In the safemode windows go to Control panel and check your power options, you will see what time frame your system has for the LCD when turning off.

If this does not fix the issue, try booting into safemode with networking for you to be able to go online in safemode try updating your BIOS from your Manufacturers Website, Updating your bios may fix the issue.

Lenovo keeps rebooting from window showing safe mode or start normally mode, goes around in circles

When the computer goes into t eh boot mode click the F8 button. When you have a choice of how to boot check the "last known good version" of windows
