Laptop StartUp Pauses

HP Spectre
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Spectre Laptop has started interrupting its start up and offering me some options keys. It did not do this one week ago. I have performed an extensive system test with no issues. I have also reset the BIOS to factory defaults, but this made no difference. I think that this might just be a toggle which has been set incorrectly. Can anyone advise how to stop this interrupt and just boot as normal? Thank you very much in advance for any help you provide.

Laptop StartUp Pauses

@Jamie68,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

In order that I may provide you with an accurate solution, I will need a few more details and I would appreciate if you could, perhaps elaborate on your concern.

  • What is the exact model for your computer?
  • What are the options you are getting on the startup screen?
  • Have you made any software or hardware changes on the computer?

Look forward to hearing from you and you have a great day!

 

Take care.

 

Cheers!

Hi Fossette,

Thank you for the information and your help. I have followed the below video and unfortunately it has not resolved the issue. I did say in my original post that I have already tried this and been unsuccessful. If you have any further ideas then I would be really happy to try them.

 

Thanks again for your help.

Jamie
