    Lenovo laptop fails to restore system

    Hello eightforums,

    I have windows 8.1 on a lenovo laptop. A week ago there was an update and I installed it. But after that I first noticed that there was no sound. The volume control has always a red cross and I can't adjust it. Whenever I go to control panel the window freezes. Same goes windows update/recovery/system restore and other pc settings. I think something went wrong with installing the update so i want to go back to a point before that update. But how do i do that when i cant go to control panel/windows update etc.?

    Can somebody please help me?

    Thank you very much in advance!
