Hi ,

My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible!

Lets try a hard reboot first please> Sometimes this is caused by a glitch in the firmware and can be resolved by a forced reboot, other times it is due to failed hardware, if it is a glitch then your Lenovo will work normally again. Disconnect the power cord and any other externally connected devices and usb cables, then Press and hold the power button down for 60 seconds. Then release and wait a couple of minutes, then try powering on. Let me know if any changes occur.

How would you be able to connect to my computer if it is not booting up?
Tech Support Specialist: Randy Computer Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

Try this next please>

  1. Turn off your Lenovo
  2. Next to the power button (on the right hand side), there is a little, small button. Press this button. This button is called the OKR (one key recovery) button.
  3. On boot, you will be prompted with about 4 option. Select the option that says recovery (or one key recovery).
  4. Follow the on-screen prompts.

I did as you said, I was met with a loading screen...and now I am at a black screen and it has been like this for a minute or two.
Tech Support Specialist: Randy Computer Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

okay, which version of windows do you have on the Yoga?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I do believe windows 10
Tech Support Specialist: Randy Computer Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

okay, Try rebooting and see if you can get into BIOS by pressing F2 continously during bootup. Check to see that your boot device is set to the primary hard drive

It’s fine. And to answer your question previously, no it did not. It’s back doing the same thing.
Tech Support Specialist: Randy Computer Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

okay, you may be able to boot it with recovery media. You can download it for free from Microsoft website.

Use another computer and a usb flash drive, then go to microsoft.com and search recovery media.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
