Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community! I came across your post and wanted to assist you. I understand you are having issues with your HP notebook stuck while turning on the PC. Don't worry as I have a few suggestions which should help you resolve this issue.
To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:
- Provide the computer model number or product number?
- Have you tried to boot into Safe mode and remove the check from Safe boot?
In the meantime, let's try these steps here:
Perform a Hard reset on the notebook: A power reset (or hard restart) clears all information from the computer's memory without erasing any personal data. Performing a power reset might fix conditions such as Windows not responding, a blank display, software freezing, keyboard stops responding, or other external devices locking up.
Next thing, I would suggest here is to Press the power button to restart the PC and start tapping Esc key continuously until you see the Startup Menu - On the Startup Menu - Press the F10 key to enter into Recovery mode - If prompted, select your keyboard layout, then from the Choose an option screen, click Troubleshoot - Click Advanced options - Startup Settings > Restart. Choose the safe mode option you want from the Startup Settings menu:
Press the Windows + R - Type in msconfig - On the top click on Boot - Remove the check box next to Safe boot. Click on Apply and OK. Restart the PC and now check if you get the password prompt.
