My friend's Lenovo computer was crashing unexpectedly, so he tried to run a system restore. Now, his laptop boots up, displays the Lenovo splash screen, shows the system restore status as 64% and then crashes. It then reboots and repeats this cycle.
He has no install disk and no easy access to another computer right now, or I would try to walk him through making a bootable usb. And anyway, apparently BIOS won't open no matter what key he presses, so that eliminates pretty much all the ideas I had to fix it.
I told him to leave it on overnight and see what happens, but I think it might be bricked. Any ideas on what caused this or what he could do? (The laptop's hard drive is removable, so his files might be salvagable as long as it's not a virus.)
