As of yesterday, I am getting the blue error screen when attempting to turn on HP laptop

What can I do since I cannot get to the home screen for a system restore?

I won't be taking it for repairs, it's been repaired several times for multiple issues.

One of the best ways to fix this problem is to run a System File Check (SFC). SFC is a Windows system tool that will conduct a complete check of the system looking for missing or corrupt Windows system files. And since these can cause the blue screen of death, it is a very good idea to run an SFC check using Command Prompt.
sfc /scannow
[@467302,iamnikki] great! So you basically have to act as the administrator...coz only an admin has the right to access system files. Get it?
[@467302,iamnikki] please watch this video and do as it says. It’ll be easier for you to understand, rather than send me screenshots. 🤗

[@17829,TryingtoLava] should I hit refresh PC or recovery manager?
[@467302,iamnikki] recovery manager! :( sorry im late

Is there a "stopcode" shown on the blue screen? It would look like "0x" followed by a combination of 8 digits or letters.

Knowing that might help answer the question.

[@467302,iamnikki] can you start up a Command Prompt from there?

[@467302,iamnikki] I see [@372543,Vivaci] is helping you. I expect you're in good hands.
