    I had the same exact problem. Nothing would work. But, then I tried pushing the restart button (the little circular arrow) and the power button at the same time, and it restarted my chromebook. It has been working after I imputed my passcode and it logged me in.
    good info

    Thank you, this worked for me. Before seeing your comment, I was trying all other app but they didn’t work for ME but this worked.

     My parents said that I can’t mess this chrome book within the first year of with it because many of my previous devices had either messed up because of me it it was a system fault. 2 phone screen got lost. One Acer computer tablet had lost its sensor. There were a few other problems with other devices. 
    Anyways, thanks for saving me. lol

    Hello I have had my chromebook nearly 3 years and I love it it has been with me all over the world and is without a doubt the best 200pounds I have ever spent Last night quite late I was enjoying a crime podcast and the chromebook froze on a bloodcurdling scream and no matter what I did I could not turn it off I had lost the screen I tried everything volume was froizen refresh and power etc si in the end I took it out to the garden before it woke the kids up. This morning with flat batterry I plugged in and it seems we are back to normal.Has anyone else had a chromebook frozen on a loud scream oir musical note its a very bizarre and irritating experience !

    One thing you might not have tried is a long press of the power button. When it's held down for 30 seconds or so it bypasses the OS and just powers down, without the orderly shutdown process normally done. It's a handy method for when something gets completely hung. I doubt it was because of the loud noise being sent to the speakers, though it wouldn't hurt to see if Google has any updates pending...
