My laptop initiated a re-boot and after 2 hours is stuck on a screen saying Fixing (C:) Stage 2 99%

Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

My laptop initiated a re-boot unasked and after 2 hours has been stuck on a screen that reads Fixing (C:) stage 2  99% (0 of 0); total 77%; WTA 0:29:07. It has been on this screen for more than 30 minutes.  Can I move it on somehow, or would another hard reset, (turning off) hurt?

@RecCath

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.
 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  
Hard Reset: Follow steps from the link: https://hp.care/2GnkMa8. (Refer to the removable and sealed battery)
BIOS default:(do not skip any troubleshooting steps even if you feel steps are repeating)

  1. Turn off the computer and wait five seconds.
  2. Press the Power button to start the computer and repeatedly press the F10 key to enter the BIOS setup menu.
  3. On the BIOS Setup screen, press F9 to select and load the BIOS Setup Default settings.
  4. Press F10 to Save and    Exit.
  5. Use the arrow keys to select Yes, then press Enter when asked Exit Saving Changes?
  6. Follow the prompts to restart your computer. 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
