I have a Lenovo PC (running Windows 10) that was acting up, so I restored the factory settings and was stuck in restore cycle for 8 hrs. I finally did a hard shutdown, then restarted another factory wipe and restore back to the basic system but the PC is stuck in restore for cycle screen for days on end without any reaction. I was wondering should I replace the Harddrive or is the mother board damaged? Or any other options
 
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.

The Pc will no longer get past the Lenovo splash screen to get to the login.
 
Getting into the system is not part of what I suggested. I am talking about turning off the WiFi at the source (modem/router) or taking the device somewhere there is not WiFi for it to connect to. This doesn't require getting into the computer.
