I suggest that you use the  processor's Intel graphics while you fix the issue as you did not say if the fail mode was iwhile using discrete graphics or processor graphics mode.

 

You can use either the HP Support Assistant if you can boot to Windows to do it automatically or the detect my drivers feature on the URL below to update the Display driver.

After you have downloaded  the driver, install it.
