Lenovo G40 Windows 8 Frozen on Splash Screen



As I was restarting my computer last night, I recieved an error with the following message "efi network 0 for ipv6 boot failed".



I tried rebooting the computer and it would always freeze on on the splash screen.



I accessed the BIOS and it reads the HDD but still won't boot.



I tried to to put the computer on legacy support and the problem still persists.



Please help and advise me on what do to do?



Thank you,

Enter BIOS and check boot order and boot devices. If network boot is listed, change to disabled and move HDD to first place.
Also - run diagnostics on the hard drive if present in BIOS it may have an impact on the problem.
