Thank you for showing your interest in HP Support Forums. It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel. I came across your post and wanted to assist you, I understand the computer is not booting properly, don't worry as I have a few suggestions which should help you to resolve this issue,
To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:
Was there any update/reset interrupted recently?
Have you made any software or hardware changes made on the PC?
When was the last time it worked (date)?
In the meantime, Let's try these steps here:
Perform a System restore to a previous date where it was all working fine.
Now go ahead and disable automatic update and select manual.
Also, you could run the extensive test on the Hard drive using F2 (Please remember to capture the failure ID for further assistance).
Please respond to this post with the result of your troubleshooting. I look forward to hearing from you.
