Hp laptop crashing!!!


So every time I boot my laptop it goes into a screen that has a blue bar and reads (The selected boot device failed. Press <Enter> to Continue.) the under says [ok]. I press enter to press ok then it instantly turns off the laptop and I turn it back on and it does it repetitively. I think I enforced this by accidentally turning off the computer when it was full resetting because it started doing this since. If I can get some help on how to fix it, it will be much appreciated. Thx

First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat; Re-Connect the AC adapter.

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).

Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn.
