Pavilion x2 detachable freezing-won't let me fix

Pavilion x2 detachable
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)
Last night turned on to find it saying it was installing updates. Since then when turned on freezes but won't let me open or fix anything. Keep having to turn it off and on. No joy. Sometimes opens a blue screen. Message reads 'windows hasn't loaded correctly'. Option to reset won't work as says I need additional free space on the drive but can't open drive to do so. Start up repair can't diagnose a problem. Won't let me perform a system restore and won't let me create a restore point. Don't have a disc to use. Cannot open files or access internet on desktop. Completely stuck. Please help.

HI @nlaw,


Welcome to HP Forums! I have read your post and wanted to help.


I understand that your laptop does not start as normal. You tried restoring Windows to a previous point, troubleshooting on a blue "Choose An Options" screen, but they did not work.


Please try the hard reset and hardware failure tests on the link below.

If they do not help, performing an HP System Recovery would be the last resort.

Let me know how it goes.
