Boot loop - is it my motherboard?

2021-03-20, 8:52 AM
This all started after a BIOS update. It's continuously loading Lenovo screen then restarts. I can access BIOS but I can not access recovery utility.
 
I have tried nearly everything:
 
Restore bios default settings f9 f10
 
Pushed the button under the laptop
 
Unplugged and replugged cmos
 
 Left it on overnight on bios menu to power drain
 
Legacy boot
 
Tried Reflashing to older version of bios via USB drive, didn't work just keep rebooting
 
Tried to boot windows from USB
 
Tried to boot ubuntu from (I know this should work because I tried on another machine)
 
Changed boot menu to only USB and still nothing.
 
I have used mutiple USBs, tested every single port but nothing.
 
All I can access is BIOS and boot menu.
I did notice windows boot manager disappear from my boot menu if that matters.

Hello Telsa97,

 

 

I suggest that you share the machine type model / MTM (ex. 81C70000RK) from the sticker as it would help us detail more about your machine variant.
 
Can you try running diagnostics?
 
Update us how it goes.
