Malwarebytes might be able to fix it. Download and run the free version:

if you want to just restore the laptop, read your manual and find out how to access the hidden partition.

Whether you format is up to you.

In safe mode sometimes the malware doesn't load. Running malwarebytes then is often more successful. That's probably true with the other suggestions above.
