Lenovo Ideapad 110 stuck on restart loop

2017-11-13, 9:07 AM

I've got a problem with a Lenovo Ideapad 110 that I was formatting for a new user - I left it over the weekend to refresh and reinstall Windows 10 and now turning it on puts it in a continuous loop that stops me getting into Windows or even the BIOS.

 

At the moment whenever I turn the laptop on the Lenovo splash screen comes on, followed by the circle of white dots. After a couple of seconds the logo disappears for a second then reappears. The message "Welcome" appears for a split second and then turns to "Restarting." After a couple more seconds the laptop restarts and the whole thing happens again until I turn off the power.

 

I've tried every shortcut to get to the BIOS, system repair, etc. that I can think of and nothing stops this loop from happening. I've tried the Novo button on the side, that does nothing either. Any suggestions on how to get around this so I can force a complete system restore would be most appreciated.

 

Cheers

Small pin hole next to audio jack get's you to boot options and bios setup. Have PC off then insert paper clip into hole. sounds like you have a corrupted Windows install, or something worse like a bad image of Windows or possibly a hard drive issue. If you get into bios I would reset to default settings then try to boot into Windows.

This was the solution, furthermore it turned out the last user had wiped the Lenovo recovery partition as well. Solved by creating a recovery USB drive and booting from that. It took a while but everything's back up and runnning. Thanks for your help!

Great! glad it worked out that it was just a bad image. Starting with a good known image always helps guarantee a good start.

Please provide the procedure. Insert paperclip into while laptop is off, and then what?

Once into boot options, what is the next step?

Will data be lost?

I've tried some of the posted solutions on this forum for my computer as I am in the same situation.  Now I have the "Diagnosing your PC" death loop.  I have gone to BIOS and tried to reset to factory defaults and I still get the death loop.  What do I do?
