So when I turn on my lenovo u410 laptop I get this menu box up as seen below in a black background. I've played around with the menu and I get nothing. This has been happening for the past few days and usually it manages to get past this and start up normally. However today is the day it's decided to stay put and I have no idea what to do. This is very frustrating as I only bought the laptop less then 2 months ago. Please help!
It's windows 8 btw

Thanks for posting and welcome to the Lenovo Community,
I’d like to guide you in a way to try to set the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) inside the BIOS to be the first priority booting order so we will try to return the BIOS to factory default settings:
Step1: Please turn off the machine and then at the left side you can see the NOVO button which is the button with the curve arrow
Step2: Press on the NOVO button and then you will get option press on BIOS Setup
Step3: Please press on FN+F9 together and then press Enter on Yes option and then FN+F10 to save and exit and then press Enter
Hope the information helps. Let us know.

Exactly the same happened yesterday!
I think the PC was hibernated. It resumed, but then I noticed that every time I wanted to launch a Windows application (whichever, it didn't matter), it just wouldn't load. Then I decided to reboot the computer.
Since then, I've lost it all. It won't boot. It doesn't matter what I change.. I've just tried to boot from an external USB device but it doesn't boot either. :-O - This is something I really can't understand!
I've also restored Default Values to BIOS but the problem still persists. What can I do?
I don't post the screenshot because it's exactly the same! :-(

I have this issue, too, and my laptop is also barely 2 months old. I followed your instructions and it did not work. I'm very frustrated. PLEASE HELP.

I am having this issue as well. I have been using the U410 for about a month. The cycle you are describing happens to me about 80% of the time. The only time I can get it to work is to blow it out with my compressor..... This is not acceptable Lenovo. Please reply and contact me asap.

Hello. I am also having this problem. It's only happened to me once and it has been stuck ever since. I tried the instructions posted above but they wouldn't work. Please help!

Let me premise this. I am a tech. I have over 20 certs in IT. I am not a novice.
After about a month I sent it in. The HD, HDD, and the motherboard were all replaced.
Send it in.

Today exactly the same happened to me after a year of perfect conditions.
Lenovo support, what do you guys recommend for this situation?
I`m stuck and next week is my graduation, so if this ain`t fixed before than... i`m in trouble.
