    Automatic repair loop

    I bought this second hand laptop which was reset to factory settings and everything was working well, Windows 10.
    I wanted to access BIOS and wasn't sure whether it's the F1 or F2 key that I have to press (it's a Lenovo), so I kept pressing both intermittently as the laptop was preparing to boot. The result was that it didn't boot, but it went into the Automatic Repair Loop. I tried a bunch of possible fixes for this from YouTube, but nothing worked, so I'm still in the loop.
    Does anyone here have any suggestions on how to end this, please?
    Thanks a lot!

    Remove the CMOS battery and put it back after 30 seconds.

    Once you get it going again with Matthew's suggestion, be sure to check the clock and reset it if necessary.
    For Lenovo, BIOS (UEFI) access is F12.
