Hi! Over the past few months, my HP Pavilion has shown the following message every now and then when starting the computer
I've simply shut down the computer manually and after 1-10 times of doing this, it restarts properly. I've tried enabling and disabling legacy support (a solution I found online that might work) but it didn't help. Sometimes I shake it and "tap" it on the bottom (maybe the hard drive is lose?) and this sometimes helps so the next restart the computer starts properly.
What could be the problem with my computer? I read somewhere it might be related to the Optane Memory (could this be true?).
This is a very annoying problem as at times I urgently need access to my computer but it takes a while to get it started properly. I also fear one day it will stay like this and won't restart.
Thanks in advance for any help, I appreciate it. ; )
P.S.- the problem usually happens for a couple weeks on a daily basis and then for a few weeks doesn't happen at all, but then it comes back.

Hi, thank you for your help.
These problems started around February this year (2022). It's an appearing and disappearing problem, for weeks I'll have no issues and then out of nowhere I'll have issues for a few days, and then back to no issues.
I have made no software or hardware changes to the computer.
Currently the computer has been working fine, when the problem appears again I'll make sure to try this solution and let you know if it works
