"I have a Lenovo Ideapad with Windows 10 installed. I was playing the game Counter-Strike, and my screen suddenly froze, I couldn’t even hit ctrl+alt+delete. Thus, I turned offthe Windows 10 Lenovo computer, but when I tried to turn the computer on again, I get an error message: Windows Boot Manager Boot Failed. Changing the BIOS to Legacy BIOS boot is not working.
I try to move on from there, it displays: Boot Device not found, insert boot device and press any key to go on. It’s loading files on the screen if I hit a key. After a few minutes, I get another error said: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause…… Any help would be appreciated."
