    Did you read my previous post? Do you have such a utility? Did you check the Lenovo website for the utility? Have you tried booting to your optical drive? If you can get there, use the installation CD (repair mode) to try and access your UEFI BIOS. See screenshots in this tutorial:

    Hi python53,

    At this point, I really think you would be better served to post your issue at the Lenovo forum in the section for your specific model number because, as I said before, there are others having the same issue as you.
    Good luck.

    Sorry you couldn't find a solution but I'm hoping all the recommendations have helped you make a decision that you are somewhat comfortable with. Good luck.
