You can try Magic SysRq keys. SysRq-B reboots. If it does that, then
machine still services interrupts. May be useful:
tErm (SysRq-E): TERM all tasks
kIll: KILL all tasks
showPc: get current stacktrace
showTasks: get all processes' stacktraces

If any of the above works, you have starting point to dig deeper.
