Y700 start menu keeps popping up

Hey guys,

 

So my lenovo y700 started doing this today. At any random moment the start menu would just pop up for no reason. It is not that much of a big deal, but whenever I start gaming it can be really frustrating since the start menu popping up just alt+tab my window... so if anyone's had the same issue please let me now if anything solved your problem.

 

Thanks!

Hi there, Mathk           -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

You may try to, as mentioned in your link provided;

Run DISM tool and check the concern:
Open an elevated command prompt.
Type the following command in command prompt and press Enter.

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth. DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth.

Restart your PC and try again to see if your Start Menu will open randomly.

 

Update us how it goes.

Hi, thanks for the quick answer Smiley Happy!

 

The problem seemed to have solved itself since it has not yet happened today. I will let you know if it ever starts doing it again and if your solution works

Hi again,

 

So the problem occured again earlier this morning and I tried the two commands you asked me to try. Unfortunately it didn't solve the problem.

 

If you have any other solution, let me know please

Thank you

You could use the System Restore feature to get your computer back the time when it worked.

 

Update us how it goes.

I didn't have time to try it yet unfortunately. I'll update you as soon as I try it. 

The feature you are talking about is the "OneKey Recovery" Right?

Yes. Try the One Key Recovery using the Novo button.

 

Update us how it goes.

Re: Y700 start menu keeps popping up

I'm also starting to have problem when I boot my laptop. Sometimes it doesn't wake up when in sleep mode. I have to press the start button for at least 30 seconds before it launches. I'll try the recovery software when I have the time to do so. But if it doesn't work, is there any other option or will I have to return my laptop?

So apparently I have some more issues with my laptop and I'll need to send it back to be repaired...
