Last week, my laptop ran a Windows 10 update. Ever since, I have not been able to start up the computer. When I do, I am ultimately taken to a blue screen with a message that reads “Automatic Repair”— Your PC did not start correctly. It gives me several “Advanced Options” for correcting the problem. The one I have tried have not worked. I have never had an issue with my laptop until last week.

@aimee929 Welcome to HP Community!
Here's what I recommend you do, to resolve this issue:
Step 1: Remove discs and devices
Before troubleshooting startup issues, remove or disconnect all discs and devices from the computer.
Turn off the computer.
Remove any discs and USB devices.
Remove memory cards from the card reader slot.
Disconnect all non-essential devices such as printers, scanners, external hard drives.
Leave only the mouse, keyboard, and monitor connected.
After you have removed all discs and devices, turn on the computer.
If the computer starts, reconnect devices one at a time, to determine which disc or device is causing the problem. If the issue is solved, troubleshooting is complete.
If the computer still does not start and exhibits the same problem, press and hold the Power button to turn off the computer. Do not connect anything, and then continue troubleshooting.
Step 2: Perform a hard reset
Many startup errors and other problems can be resolved by decreasing the amount of power stored in hardware components. Decreasing stored power is sometimes referred to as a Hard Reset.
After you have completed these steps, if the computer startup issue is resolved, go to HP PCs - Updating Drivers and Software with Windows Update (Windows 10, 8, 7), and then go to HP PCs - Using HP Support Assistant (Windows) to update all device drivers.
