Let the notebook start in Safe Mode. Then hold down the Windows key and press R. Into the Run Box type msconfig and hit enter. In the System Configuration window, click the Boot tab and look to see if there is a tick in the box next to Safe boot - if there is, click the box to remove the tick and then click Apply to save the change. Restart the notebook and see if Windows will boot normally.

I'm having the same issue. I go into system configuration and into the boot tab then try to turn off safe mode but what comes up says "System Configuration cannot save the original boot configuration for later restoration. Boot changes will be reverted. The system cannot find the path specified." I'm not sure whats wrong with it but my audio wont work and everything is messed up ever since i got safe mode. Who can help me fix it?

Thank you for joining in on the HP Support Forums and Welcome! I wanted to reach out to you and let you know I will do my absolute best to help!
In most cases, you can exit Safe Mode by restarting your computer. When you have entered Safe Mode using Command Prompt, restarting your computer does not exit Safe Mode. If your computer is stuck in Safe Mode, use the following steps in the Exiting Safe Mode section of the Safe Mode document to return to normal operation.
I would also need you to elaborate a little more on what happened to put you in Safe Mode rather than "normal" mode.
Did you put your Notebook into Safe Mode via the Command Prompt?
Are you having an issue that you needed Safe Mode for?
Can you navigate the desktop on your Notebook in Safe Mode?
When you boot up the Notebook, does it give you an option to "Start Windows Normally"?
