IF you had bothered to check here BEFORE you forced the reset, we would have told you that the Stream models can not do a reset without external media and saved you the problem you encountered.


If your PC is a 2016 model or newer, you should see if you can make a bootable USB recovery drive using the HP cloud recovery tool on a working PC.

The recovery drive can then be used to install Win10 and the HP drivers and utilities that originally came with your PC.
