P.C. won’t start up

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Notebook. P1A79UA
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

When I tried to reboot it says Preparing automatic repair then Diagnosing your PC, then a blue screen that says Automatic Repair

your P.C. did not start correctly

Hi
First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat; Re-Connect the AC adapter.

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).

Please post the results.

Thanks.  I wasn’t able to do that but finally got hold of tech support and they are helping me reset my PC.
