My boyfriend's laptop won't open any shortcuts anymore and always crashes. It was hacked and has viruses now. He wants to restore it to it's factory settings and start new with it but we can't figure out how. I have a Dell and I did it without a problem. When he presses F11 it makes a beep noise. What do we do?

I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found HERE. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

That laptop has a OneKey Rescue System according to the Users Guide here:
Lenovo G450/G550 User Guide V2.0

It's on page 23.
