Hello my name is ***** ***** I will do whatever I possibly can to help answer your questions. I am sorry you have encountered this kind of problem. Have you powered the machine off completely waited for a good 5 minutes and then turned the machine back on?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes. I did all of those standard things. I am now getting 'problem encountered while resorting' and it is giving me options like refresh pic, reset pc etc. I tried resetting it and everything went fine and when it is trying to restart as part of that process it gave the same error.
Expert:  Charles A. Roberts replied 1 year ago.
Does this error happen after the Lenovo logo by chance?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes. It appears that there is some sort of loose connection. When I hold the laptop by pressing hard it I get the normal windows login otherwise the message " your windows didn't restart properly " and gives the options for advance repair.
Expert:  Charles A. Roberts replied 1 year ago.
I wouldn't exactly say a loose connection. It sounds like windows itself might be having a problem. Are you able to get it to boot into normal mode at all?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes, I tried booting it only via normal mode and didn't restart since 2 days.
Expert:  Charles A. Roberts replied 1 year ago.
OK once it is in normal mode restart it again and tell me if it goes through or if you get that message again?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok trying it now. By the way , Ihave reset the laptop to factory settings as part of windows recovery repair. I just restarted and boot up fine.
Expert:  Charles A. Roberts replied 1 year ago.
A factory reset was a good idea it was something I wanted you to consider. Does the problem seem to be corrected since that has been done?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It appears so. But I'm not 100% sure as some how I feel something isn't right . If I run into this problem few days later what should I do?
Expert:  Charles A. Roberts replied 1 year ago.
If it keeps happening I would advise getting a copy of the original recovery software only on disk from Lenovo that way you have a pure copy with out error, This way you also have it incase the hard drive would be the cause and not saving or holding data. I hope that makes sense. If you have more questions please let me know and don't forget to leave positive feedback for my time and information it is the only way I am compensated.

Would lenovo provide that recovery cd As they have the one key recovery ? This laptop is 18 months old.

You may have to pay for it if they don't cover it under parts and labor warranty.
