I would like to assist you, but core i5 7th generation is not an identification of an HP laptop. Look on the bottom for some tiny letters and searchg for the ProdID. Find it and put it in your next reply.
If you are desperate to access some information on the hard disk, then removing it and connecting it as a slave to another PC by way of a USB hard disk enclosure or a SATA port in a desktop PC may be your only current options.

You can access OneDrive from any PC online at www.office.com/signin
