F11 Recovery not working on Pavilion Desktop

HP Recommended
Pavilion 590 desktop
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

My Pavilion 590 desktop will not boot. When I power on, I receive a black screen with the HP logo and it says "Preparing Automatic Repair" and it hangs on this screen forever. If I power on and use the F11 recovery option, I receive a black screen with the HP logo that says "Please Wait" and it hangs on this screen forever.

 

Any ideas??

Hi:

 

The first thing you should do is to run the hard drive diagnostics to make sure the hard drive is OK.

 

To do that turn on the PC, tap/press the ESC key to get the menu of options.

 

Select the F2 diagnostics option and test the hard drive.

Since the hard drive passed the tests, the only suggestion I can offer, would be to use the HP cloud recovery tool on another Windows PC running W7 64 bit or newer to create a bootable USB recovery drive that will reinstall W10, the drivers and the software that originally came with your PC.

 

Here is an info link for how to use that utility...
