Laptop ideapad z500 with W8 after updating video drivers, died W8.
Question one: how to get into safe mode to roll back. (F8 or Shift F8 does not help ... of Windows are not as respectively) solution is?
The second question: why hard disk is under a common cover and something to reach it is necessary to disassemble the whole laptop - spent on it for about an hour, not five minutes
is a failure ..

Can you verify that it is only a Graphics driver problem,
System should still boot into BIOS by hitting F2
You should still be able to see the WIndows 8 Splash Screen Logo with the loading circle like this
One way to launch the Advanced boot option like safe mode and safemode with networking is to Crash the PC 2 to 3 times.
Wait until the Computer loads the Windows 8 Splash screen like the reference photo I linked above.
Once you got there hold down the power button
Repeat the steps until you turn on the system and it directs you to the advanced option with Safemode.
Hope this helps
