I have a lenovo l50-45 S/N ********.
It will not Boot.
I start with the lenovo screen. Then after a few seconds i turns off and then start all over again. I can not access the bios with the tab on the side. Any suggestions what is wrong.

Boot (turn on) the notebook from the Lenovo button (has a ^ next to it) that is either on the side of the notebook or near power button. Check BIOS settings, try changing from secure boot to legacy. If boot normally, then download updates again, reboot into BIOS and change back to secure boot.
This worked for a few others after the latest round of Windows 10 updates were installed out of sequence.

The problem was that I could not get the computer to start the bios. So tabbing the recovery button ore pressing f12 did dent help.
But I tried to change the hdd, and that help. The old hdd I broken, It will not work on the other computer either. But the new hdd is working on the Lenovo. I have now restored the computer, and all seems to work again.

I used this laptop for 3.5 yrs (Win 8.1, 64 bit) & this problem of restarting several times even from the Novo button appeared recently.
After all the usual methods that didn't work I updated the BIOS (a2cn45ww.exe) from 2.08 to 2.13. This update file is available online & the procedure is simple. This solved my problem for good. (The power supply, battery pack, memory, HDD are all good).
