Restart your HP Pavilion laptop and immediately press 'F11' until the recovery menu appears. If it doesn't work, again restart your system and try again. You can also tap 'Delete' alternatively.
Click 'Next' in 'Recovery menu' window.
You will see two options viz. nondestructive recovery or destructive recovery on the menu. Nondestructive recovery is generally recommended because it doesn't format your hard drive or erase your data whereas destructive recovery format your hard drive and erase any other personal file. So click 'Yes' to select and execute the 'Nondestructive recovery' procedure here.
Now the restore process will start and after that your laptop will restart automatically.
After restarting your HP Pavilion laptop, you will notice that updates are taking place more frequently, which is due to your system being restored to default factory settings.
same procedure worked for me. Hope, it helps.
