Hi Ampie, I don't fully understand. Do you mean it crashes every-time you boot up? or is it doing a loop? Thanks!

It might be worth doing a Check Disk. Will fix any corrupt windows files. If you can access Safe Mode via command prompt then great, if not you will need to get there via the advanced system menu. When / if you get there run
Code:
[B]chkdsk /F C:[/B]
or
Code:
[B]chkdsk C: /F[/B]
. More info on tech-net site: Run Check Disk from a Command Line to Check for and fix Disk Errors. (you maybe able to access Command Prompt by the boot menu, not 100% sure)

Its annoying because if you could access command prompt you could run a SFC scan which would probably fix the issue. If you have a windows 8 disk you could boot from that and run the Command Prompt under the "Repair your computer" option.

If it crashed and you had to force it off, yo may have damaged your hard drive. Windows 8 does this. Download Hiren's Boot CD from my link below, burn it and boot to it. Stick it in the Lenovo and boot to it, go do DOS PROGRAMS and then go to hard Drive Tools.

Try GWscan. If GWscan does not work, you will have top use the program for the OEM, Like Toshiba or Hitachi, you'll have to know who made your hard drive. Your System BIOS will tell you this- You should probably find out before you run anything.

In GWscan if it runs, let it do the first 2 tests, if it finds Read Element Failure, then run the full disk scan, it takes an hour. The OEM programs also have full disk scanning. It will detect an error, then offer to fix it, that's what you wanna do.

Once it does the full scan, then just reboot, run CHKDSK on your system drive as soon as it comes up.

Ok great - Scan your hard drive with one of the tools on Hiren's as SOON as you can, after you do that, you can try something else - If you need to. But I bet it is read element failure.

Well you need to boot from the hirens disk. You will see a screen of options, you want "dos programs" then "hard disk tools"- find GWscan and run the first 2 tests.
