Question

Windows 10 boot error - intermittent

by alexalter7 / June 29, 2017 4:40 PM PDT

My Lenovo Yoga 900 throws a boot error once every three restarts approximately. I reset the device and it loads just fine. I am concerned that this may worsen over time and would like to solve the problem before further complications arise.

Any indication it's the HDD? Or is this SSD?

Reset is too vague, tell a little more.
How old is the laptop?

The HD is ssd and the unit is about a year old. When I reset, I just press the power button on the side in the Laptop once and it reboots. I may have to do this more than once before it boots properly, i.e. - it might end up back at the boot error a second time, but a second reboot always resolves without additional measures. It has been doing this for several month's now without any other problems.

If it's out of warranty try.

As of now, running a check disk repair has solved the problem.

It's a common thing. Sadly common and a little advanced for everyday users. I'm unsure why this is happening more often. A little mystery.

Run the hard drive test first for any failure.
If hdd is good. Check if the bios is up to date.Run start up repairs. Try editing startup items. If issue persist then i think you should reinstall windows as you already tried the reset.
