Default [Q] Triangle Screw&Wrench screen Boot Looping

A friend has tasked me with restoring her phone which has been stuck on the triangle screen with a screwdriver and wrench. At first i thought it was download mode for sony but after some research from what i can pick up its formatting internal memory or something along those lines. others have solved this problem by waiting it out anywhere from 1-2 minutes to 2-3 hours. I have been running this screen plugged in for probably over six hours now and ive noticed that the progress bar at the bottom does stop and it will reboot but boots directly back into the triangle screen. it does not register on my laptop and i havent been able to boot into fastboot or download mode. Not visible through adb either.

Im pretty sure i have the correct drivers installed but if someone wanted to post a link to drivers they use and are confirmed to work please do so.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

Regarding drivers, if you download PC Companion and SUS you should be good to go....
