Question HP Laptop stops at HP logo and won't boot

Apr 23, 2023
My HP ProBook 450 G3 Notebook PC starts to boot, screeching noises come from the CD Rom area but it never loads past the HP logo and the screen flickers.
So far I have ran the following tests:
  • 2 hour long test for PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI: Passed
  • Quick Hardware UEFI test: Passed
  • Memory test: Passed
  • I attempted a BIOS update but it said: System could not find one of the BIOS update binary files
Another thing to note is that in the BIOS boot menu, the UEFI boot order has the DVDRW as the first item in the list but is is listed as Disabled.

Do you think the DVD/CD is the issue? If so, how can I disable it so that the computer will boot. I really need to get some files off of it.

Processor is: Intel i5-6200U CPU @2.3GHz
SKU/Product: T1B70UT#ABA
BIOS Version: N78 Ver. 01.44 10/31/2019

Thanks in advance!
