Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

  • Did this happen after a recent window or software update?
  • Have you made any hardware/software changes?
  • Have you tried any troubleshooting steps?

I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

  • Turn off the computer completely; disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer.
  • With the power off and the power cord disconnected, press the power button on the computer for 5 seconds. ...
  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the power.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
