Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15 - 20309 - Won't Boot

Hello All,


I've had my Levovo Ideapad for 1.5 years, no problems until recently. Over the past few months when I turn the computer on all I see is a black screen it doesn't go to the Lenovo screen. Sometimes it stays on the black screen for a while and then boots up normally and works fine, sometimes it doesn't go past the black screen.


Now the computer doesn't boot past the black screen at all anymore.


I've tried the option of taking the battery out and pressing the power button for 30 seconds, that didn't seem to make any difference. Anyone else face this issue and able to fix it somehow? My warranty is over at this point...

My Lenovo has a small button next ti the power button. Hold it while turning on your pc. Thats why f8 not working on my laptop. I have been reserching this and nowhere did i see anybody mention this. Hope this helps. I found it just when i thought the laptop was brick. And the touch screen did not work after i did this so its not software. Hope this helps

And we're back...
