Lenovo Yoga 2, stuck on login screen. Need help!

2016-03-05, 18:24 PM
My Lenovo Yoga 2 has some very weird issues that is preventing me from using it. Here's a list of the issues I've noticed:

- When I hover over the power icon, there is no option to restart, shutdown or sleep. This only occurs randomly.

- I no longer have internet connection. A red "x" is on the connection icon. I'm not able to put it into airplane mode either.

- Cannot sign in. When I input my password/pin, it'll load and then restarts. But when I do get in, there is a black screen and I get an error and it restarts.

- When left on the sign-in screen, it'll restart by itself

- The initial loading screen is longer than usual.

The last thing I remember doing before this happened was ripping CDs using an external optical drive. I'm not tech savvy so I probably won't know much terminolgy about computers but I'll do some quick research when needed.
Solved! See the solution

Have you tried performing a system restore? This may help restore your computer to a working condition. Read this on how: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/restore-system-files-and-settings

I can't access that menu because I'm unable to go get past the sign-in screen. And if and when I do manage to, I'll just be greeted with a black screen with a error message and an inevitable restart.

I see. Try these steps to perform a reset. Let me know how it goes. 

 

  1. Turn off your computer
  2. Next to the power button (on the right hand side), there is a little, small button. Press this button. This button is called the OKR (one key recovery) button.
  3. On boot, you will be prompted with about 4 option. Select the option that says recovery (or one key recovery). 
  4. Follow the on-screen prompts.
