resetting notebook not working

Hp notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hello i've been trying to reset my laptop cause it stopped working out of no where. i would try to do system recovery but it would say " To use system restore, you must specify which windows installation to restore. restart this computer, select an operating system, and then select system restore" i did as it said and reset the computer when it power on it would give me keyboard lay out and then take me back troubleshooting. at the moment im doing a system test the extensive test on the computer. ( can not get into the home screen only takes me to troubleshoot )

things i've tried " turning the computer off then holding the power button until it shuts down repeat 2 more times" the screen i needed never popped up
" shutting the computer off, powering it, taping F11 non stop" nothing happens
" going to command prompt and typing  " rstrui.exe " but the box pops up saying to reset and select an operating system, typing "system reset –factoryreset" but then it says  ' system' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

the model of the laptop is :  Model: 15-bn070wm
