I did a factory reset for my Lenovo G50 laptop last night. I started it about 12 hours ago. For the last 10 hours it has been stuck at 79%. At this moment there is still on this screen:Resetting this PC. However, The circle that indicates that the laptop is charging/ resetting is running still. Is the reset stuck or could it actually cost this much time to reset my laptop completely? I do know that my entire drive was almost full of files.
 
Try this...

1. Turn off the laptop.
2. Turn off your WiFi, or take the laptop to an area where there isn't any WiFi. (If connected via Ethernet, unplug it.)
3. Turn on the laptop.
4. Once it fully loads, then turn on your WiFi again.

It should work now. Sometimes (especially in 10) updates, including those that come after a reset, can get the computer stuck. It happens when an update fails, for whatever reason, and the device continually tries to get it to install over and over. Leaving you 'stuck'. Until you take away its ability to continue trying the update, hence the no WiFi, then it should load.
