The only suggestion I can offer, if the built in recovery system didn't work would be to make a bootable USB recovery drive using the HP cloud recovery tool.


If your PC is not working, use another Windows PC with W7 64 bit or newer and a 32 GB USB flash drive, to make 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...


You can check if your PC is supported by the cloud recovery tool at the link  below...
