Lenovo Ideapad y510p won't start past logo screen.



My ~3 year old ideapad purchased from Newegg seems to have gone south. I have Windows 8.1 installed. Last night I shut it off to bring it to class and when I got to class and tried to boot up, it wouldn't finish starting up, would sit at the logo screen for about 30 seconds before shutting down and starting over. The fans power up like it is going to start. It repeats this loop indefinitely. I tried holding the reset button next to the charger port and still nothing.

Hi PailBat , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


You may try to run repair booting on a recovery image similar to this article

Using another live rescue disc to boot from amy help identify if the issue is with the hardware (harddrive , systemboard) or just the software image running further diagnostics to isolate similar to this and this


Backing up your files may also be a factor so having it boot on a live image or slaving the harddrive itself on another pc would help. 


Update us how it goes.
