Tap away F2 key as soon as you power on laptop. Do extensive hard drive and memory tests. Let it finish.

Your laptop has come with recovery partition. Your should've created HP Recovery USB after first setup of this notebook. You can use this.

But the black menue is not appearing there is no recovery manager option to click on so that i. Reset it to the factory settings. I read on some sites that i should putchase the recovery manager to reset the laptop

In that case you need to Order recovery USB from HP directly for your specific model for a charge:

Else you can clean install, using Paul Tikkanen's suggestion in here:
