Laptop has a black illuminated screen with a curser in the upper right hand corner when I turn it on

Product Name: HP Notebook 15-ay022ds
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I am under warranty, when I turn the laptop on it goes to a black illuminated screen with a curser in the upper left hand corner. I would like a telephone number so I can call and talk to someone so the laptop can be serviced.
