My lenovo y400 can no longer boot. It gets stuck at the lenovo screen. After waiting for a lot of time(at the lenovo screen), sometimes it does enter the Windows Recovery Environment(W8 64) but troubleshooting it is of no effect. I tried to refresh the system, only to loose the data on my hard disk but I still cannot boot my system. The 'novo' button is not having any effect as the computer just gets stuck at the lenovo screen. I referred the thread "http://support.lenovo.com/en_IN/diagnose-and-fix/detail.page?DocID=HT075709" and followed the instructions. I was able to access the bios(InsydeH20) with f2 key and loaded all the default settings but the problem persists. The thread suggested that the bios needs to be flashed but I cannot find any firmware(bios) update for lenovo y400 at the lenovo site. I am currently booting in ubuntu using a bootable usb stick.
Please reply promptly with suggestions. Thank You.
