I have a Lenovo Model: 80M80020US. I've been trying to boot up my computer all day, but it won't boot up. It gets stuck on the boot screen with the word Lenovo sometimes blinking and sometimes solid. I've tried removing the battery and holding down the power button which hasn't helped. There isn't an option to access the BIOS on the boot up screen.

Some people report that their Lenovo laptops get stuck on the Lenovo screen. The causes of this issue may be various. How to solve the Lenovo laptop stuck on boot screen issue? You can try the following solutions.

Fix 1. Remove All the External Devices and the DVD Drive

Sometimes, external devices like USB storage devices, SD cards, MP3 players, printers, scanners, digital cameras, CD and DVD drives, etc. may interfere with the PC booting process.

Therefore, when the Lenovo stuck on boot screen issue occurs, you can remove all the peripheral equipment and then power on the PC again to see if the issue is solved.

Fix 2. Perform a Power Drain

Sometimes, performing a power drain may help solve the PC booting issue. The specific reason is unknown, but many people have used this method to solve the PC booting issue. Therefore, when you have the Lenovo laptop stuck on Lenovo screen issue, you can also try this way.

Here is the guide:

  1. Unplug the power cable from the socket.
  2. If you are using a Lenovo laptop, hold down the power button for at least 10 seconds to shut it down. Then, remove the AC adapter.
  3. Wait for around 30 seconds. Then, install the AC adapter, plug the power cable, and power on the PC. Now, check if the issue is solved.

Fix 3. Run Lenovo Diagnostics Tool

The Lenovo Diagnostics tool can test a variety of devices in Lenovo computers including audio, battery, fan, RAID, storage, memory, motherboard, mouse devices, etc.

In addition, it includes many tools, allowing you to create a diagnostic script, analyze system information, view log history, recover bad sectors, measure network speed, show the real-time temperature of your devices, etc.

When the Lenovo laptop stuck on Lenovo screen issue occurs, this tool may help you solve the issue. How to run this tool? Here are 2 cases.

Case 1. You are using a ThinkPad computer.

The Lenovo Diagnostics tool has been embedded in the system firmware of some ThinkPad PCs, including L430, L530, T430, T430i, T430s, T430si, T530, T530i, W530, X131e, X230, X230 Tablet, and X1 Carbon (Type 34xx).

You can launch this tool by pressing F10 during the boot sequence, or pressing F12 during the boot sequence to access the Boot Menu, pressing Tab to select Application Menu, and then selecting Lenovo Diagnostics to run it.

Fix 4. Reset the BIOS

BIOS is the firmware embedded in your motherboard. It’s the first software that runs during the computer booting. However, if the BIOS is corrupted due to a failed update or malware attack, the Lenovo laptop stuck on boot screen issue may also occur.

In this case, you can try resetting the BIOS to solve the issue. Here is the guide:

  1. Shut down your Lenovo PC.
  2. Power on your PC, and then press F1 or F2 key once you see the Lenovo logo screen to enter BIOS. Sometimes, you may need to hold the Fn key and then press F1 or F2 to enter BIOS.
  3. Go to the Exit tab and select Load Optimal Defaults or press F9.
  4. Press F10 to save and exit.
  5. Reboot your PC to see if the issue is solved.

Fix 5. Disable Lenovo Service Engine From BIOS

Lenovo PCs with a manufacture date of 10/23/14 through 4/10/15 and manufactured with Windows 8 or 8.1 may contain LSE (Lenovo Service Engine).

It is a utility in the BIOS that automatically sends non-personally identifiable system data (machine type and model, system UUID, region, and date) to a Lenovo server one time when the system is first connected to the internet and then does not send any additional data.

However, attackers can use Lenovo Service Engine to perform a buffer overflow attack and an attempted connection to a Lenovo test server. This may cause the Lenovo stuck on boot screen issue.

In this case, you can disable the Lenovo Service Engine in BIOS to solve this issue. Here is the guide:

  1. Enter BIOS and go to the Security tab.
  2. Find Lenovo Service Engine and set it to Disabled. If you do not see an option for Lenovo Service Engine in your desktop system’s BIOS, it is not enabled in your system.
  3. Press F10 to Save and Exit.
disable Lenovo Service Engine

In addition, Lenovo also recommends consumers remove the Lenovo Service Engine because it is not consistent with security guidelines on how to best implement Microsoft Windows Platform Binary Table (WPBT) capability (LSE uses this feature).

To remove LSE, you just need to delete the following 2 files manually:

  • C:\windows\system32\LSEDT.exe
  • C:\windows\system32\LSEPreDownloader.exe
