Lenovo Ideapad P500 takes a long time to get to Splash Screen, also cannot update BIOS?

I have been having this issue for the past year, roughly. 

When booting up, my screen takes forever to turn on and display the Lenovo splash screen, sometimes over a minute. 

I have done the following:

  • Tested HDD
  • Reseat RAM
  • Reinstalled windows
  • Tried to update to the latest BIOS (from 1.17 to 1.21) 
    • This provided an Invalid Firmware Image!!! Error.
  • It seems to happen less without the charger plugged in.

Idk what the issue could be, I am running Windows 10, I have tried it on Windows 8, no matter what I do it is slow to boot to the splash screen.
