:welcome:    Kayla892,

 

Can you tell us about the blue box that you mention in your OP, did it contain an error message etc

 

See if you are able to boot into Safe Mode with Networking by starting up the computer until it gets to the point where Windows stops loading, at this point power down the computer and repeat the same procedure once or twice more, hopefully after the second/third boot attempt fails the Windows Recovery Environment will become available to you, see guide here it is an ASUS article but the principle for your HP is the same.

 

Good luck and let us know how it goes or if you have any questions.

Not heard back from you Kayla892, do you still require assistance or is the issue now resolved, an update would be appreciated.
