hello everyone. sometimes my lenovo g500 hangs on startup. i mean when i press the power button the lenovo logo shows up but the loading thing at the bottom doesnt show up. i have to restart the laptop pressing the power button a couple of times or sometimes have to take the battery out and put it back in to solve the problem. any help in this case would be highly appreciated.

It keeps on getting worse. At first it happened once a month or so but now every other day.
Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
A faulty piece of hardware can cause lags or freezes during boot up. This is especially true if the system was running good initially and over time the problem progressively got worse. I would suggest you run Check Disk on the hard drive and do a memory test. Here is a link to a highly recommended free memory test utility.......

Ok this is something tricky, and you may never be able to get the solution from any where either from lenovo, microsoft or tech guys.
I was facing a similar problem- I had my Harddisk changed, nothing happened.
It seemed something was getting short circuit.
SO i removed RAM, changed RAM nothing happened. I switched to my original RAM again.
I removed battery, installed new battery, nothing happened. I switched to my origian battery again
I removed hard disk, installed new hard disk, nothing happened. I switched to my original hard disk again.
FInally: i removed the CD rom drive.
And my computer started working again like it was originally.
I have removed the CD ROM and now system is working fine. Not getting slow or any other signs.
Just working fine.
Seems CD ROM was getting short or something.
You should try this, might work for you.

@wakaspai. Thank you!!
Removal of CD ROM worked for me.
The laptop wouldnt start at all like other people complained, but after I removed the cd rom worked with no problem. It s a shame that these things happen....
