Running Windows 10. TYPE 20AV-CTO1WW
After having performed the Lenovo update (as advised by the software, done this many times before) the laptop is now in a state in which it will continually restart, with the message "Configuration changed - restart the system" shown during the cycle.
I have tried to break this cycle by pressing various keys, but no luck there. I then removed the main battery, AC power, and CMOS battery, and all this did was add the warning "0271: Real Time Clock Error - Check Date and Time Settings" to the above message. It won't boot from a recovery USB drive I made months ago for this computer.
Long story short, a Lenovo update bricked my computer. It was working just fine before the update, and now it's a doorstop. I've seen that this error has plagued many ThinkPad owners, and the usual excuse is a motherboard problem. I really don't see how that's the issue.
Anyone got anything?
