That may not be very easy at all.
In short, it sounds as if you have 'bricked' your Chrome Book and the only way to recover from that is a complex matter of reflashing the chip directly. This requires special hardware and, at least, a working knowledge of embedded programming just to get started.

If you don't have the cables, etc. needed for this, you may need to try computer/cellphone repair shops in your area. Or, if you want to try do this yourself, you'll have to purchase the cables and hardware first.
