The problem is it's sideways. Maybe try recovery.

This looks somewhat correct http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04758961

I would just recover wanted media, music ect. Then install win7 pro. Delete the partitions, restore partions basically work or they don't
Get a copy of win10, of the same home edition pro, boot it up and go to repair, select to an earlier time, it should be pretty staraight forward. Booting, find the boot menu when you start your computer. esc, f2 f12.

Oh, surely you tried Esc. Well a new install couldn't hurt.

first step (for safety( do you have another computer? if yes, create a linux live USB. use it to boot your HP laptop. you may need to press F9 or F10 (F9 lets you pick your boot device - USB stick has to be in first!, F10 lets you hardcode it for future boots)
when you get into linux, open the file manager. go to your home folder in your home drive. you'll see a bunch of folders like windows, program files, user. it's under user, then your username. then browse things like documents, downloads, pictures ,etc. copy the ones you want to save to the USB stick.

turn off computer and remove the USB stick. next boot, press f11 to get into the HP recovery manager. then pick windows system reset. it will refresh your PC without affecting your personal files. your updates will be gone (you'll have to run windows update again), you may lose some settings (if you customized how windows looks for example), and you may have to reinstall programs to reset their settings too, but the files like pictures, documents, and what not should still be there. I told you to back them up anyway in linux in case anything goes wrong.

if for whatever reason system reset doesn't work, you may be looking at hardware problems (overheating due to dust buildup, bad memory stick, failing hard drive, etc)

WIndows is generally fine, I have had installs last near ten years being near constantly running the entire time.

Windows 10 is notorious for causing strange problems. I have a friend that had W10 destroy his motherboard because it stopped the automatic temperature throttling (?). At least that's how he explained the fried mobo.

Your friend is full of shit and may be unable to recognize his own incompetence.

The problem is that not only do stupid people not know how to use computers, but they're more likely to get the Home/Pro/low-tier editions of Win10, and THOSE are where you hear of all the problems.

Yeah, it's all those non-corporate SKUs of Windows that are cooking people's motherboards. Hey, which key do I press to not live on the same planet as you?

Look here my man, you obviously have no idea of anything IT related.
The edition of windows doesn't have anything to do with anything. Some business/enterprise/VM features are locked, that's all the difference.
You can not fry a hardware by your OS. Your hardware components have their own low-level system which throttles back or shuts down if the sensors report higher voltages/temperatures than normal. It is impossible to fry your motherboard or any other HW component by using windows. It fucking is. It's actually extremely hard to damage any hardware by a software, it's almost impossible even if you WANT to do it. Nowadays hardware is extremely foolproof regarding this. The fried mobo mentioned above was caused by a cheap mobo paired with a cheap/faulty PSU. That's the only way to fry a mobo, because even if you put unsupported RAMs in it just won't start, even if the circuit in your house shorts the surge will be catched by the mobos self defense system and it will shut down everything in a split second before any harm can be done. Even a really really bad PSU probably won't fry a mobo, though that has the biggest chance to do so. Because it will just keep shutting down, protecting the surge from reaching components.

So "Windows 10 fried my friends mobo" is a 100% completely bullshit fucking story, and knowing how foolproof todays hardwares are, your friend had to do something EXTREMELY stupid to be able to fry his mobo.

Also, it is also impossible that Windows shuts down any of these low-level self defense mechanisms. I'm not even sure if it could be done in theory, but even if it could be, it would probably require you to invest time, knowledge and effort to try and do so.
I have to triple post, because some people ITT actually believe peoples hardware are getting fried because they use Home Edition Windows. No man. If you manage to fry ANY of your hardware in 2017, its your own fucking fault, and you must have done something EXTREMELY retarded. These hardware are designed to withstand even the most retarded user and the most hardcore conditions including high ambient temperature, misplaced/uncompatible/wrong voltage components, circuit surges and unstable electrical systems.
It wasn't always the case, before thermal throttling introduced, processors were fried by playing some game for a while, but that was in 2002.
Today, if your mobo gets fried, it's either faulty by the factory or it's your own fucking retarded fault, the latter being the case 99.99999% of the time.

retard confirmed. are you 12? when you realise you're in the wrong it's best to listen and take the hint so you don't say stupid shit next time.
