I've been getting some strange behavior from this laptop. It seems to randomly have trouble starting up. If it's totally off, I'll press the power button,and sometimes it will boot up normally, but other times, it just flashes the Lenovo splash screen quickly, and then goes black.

The other weird thing is, if I'm in windows and click 'restart', the computer will turn off (but not restart).

I did upgrade the original harddrive (a small ssd) to a larger, 500 GB Crucial SSD. I think the issues may have started after that, but not sure.

One last thing....I've normally just been leaving this laptop on all the time since it's in my office at work. Sometimes, when I come in first thing in the AM, the laptop will be off.

Hold down the shift key while clicking on restart and wait until you come to an menu from there you'll find an option called automatic repair and click on it.
