System reset

HP Recommended

My laptop recently stopped working saying that a file was missing, that file being \windows\system32\winload.efi, I was told I'd need to reset my laptop but that option didn't appear anywhere, I looked up tutorials and they all told me to hold down or rapidly press f11 after turning it on, these didn't work, I'd anyone has any tips please tell me, I don't have the money to buy a new one and I don't want to lose all my files

Hi:

 

What is the full model number or product number of your notebook?

 

Use this guide to find that information....do not post the serial number...
