HP Spectre goes to black screen after typing password

Sprectre x360 convertible
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hi.  My Spectre goes to a black screen after I enter my password.  On this black screen, I only see a white mouse that I can move about but I can’t do anything.  My model # 13-ae012dx.  I have not downloaded any new software or updates since I last used this computer.

I have gone through your Post and would like to help


I suggest you perform a System Restore to an earlier time before the issue started


- Shut down the computer completely.
- Turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key, about once every second, until you see the Windows loading screen.
- If a language selection screen opens, select the language you want to use to continue.
- On the Choose your keyboard layout screen, select the keyboard layout that matches your keyboard type.
- On the Choose an option screen, click Troubleshoot.
- On the Troubleshoot screen, click Advanced Options.
- On the Advanced options screen, click System Restore.
- Click Windows 7 as the target operating system.
- The System Restore window opens. Click Next.
- Click the restore point that you want to use, and then click Next.
- The Confirm Restore Point window opens.
-Click Finish to restore your computer to a previous point.
- Do not interrupt System Restore when it starts. Doing so can corrupt your hard drive and create more problems. Click Yes in the warning that appears.
- System Restore returns the computer configuration to a previous point in time and restarts.

Keep me posted how it goes
