    Hacker warning now laptop just displays Lenovo logo on start up 2nd Oct 16 at 11:32 AM
    Hoping someone can help. I have a Lenovo b50-30 model name 80ES. My OH tried to stream something and we got a warning that we were at risk of being hacked.

    Never had this before, a woman's voice came out the speakers and in a panic the OH forced a shut down by holding the off button and took out the battery.

    Now when you try and turn it on you just get a Lenovo logo and nothing else happens. Anything I can do?

    Press Fn (and whilst holding it down), press F2 as soon as the Lenovo Logo appears on the screen...

    You want to get into the BIOS Setup screen. If that doesn't work, try Fn + F1.

    If that doesn't work, try Shift + F8 key on start up

    If that doesn't work, try Shift alone on start up.

    If that doesn't work, press F8 on start up

    If that doesn't work, press F4 on start up.

    If all fails, you can simply remove the HDD. It's very simple. Then start the machine and report what happens then.

    Right got the start up message again so there's 5 sections (information, configuration, security, boot and exit). Under security it says secure boot and secure boot status are enabled and I can either reset to setup mode or restore factory keys. And advice?

    I don't have an uncorrupted laptop to follow the other instructions. Happy to restore it and lose what was on it.

    Remember the combination that you utilised to get into the BIOS setup, lest you need to go there again later.
    If you don't have another laptop, you'll just have to try the One Key Recovery function.
