I can’t get out of the “preparing automatic repair” screen

I have tried factory reset but it leads me back to the repair screen, I have gone through BIOS and I have done f12.
Please help, it’s urgent.

    Press and hold power button till machine shuts off. Then unplug the charger. Gently insert a paperclip into the battery reset pinhole for 30 seconds. Then plug the charge back in. Turn the machine on again. If it still gives the same result, press and hold power button again till the machine turns off. Then turn it back on and IMMEDIATELY press and hold the ALT key while tapping the F10 key. Follow directions to reset the PC again. Jack E/NJ

    Shut the machine off again. Then turn it back on and immediately start tapping the F2 key to enter the BIOS menu. Does HDD0 or HDD1 show up in the BIOS Information tab? If yes, make sure the F12 and D2D options are enabled in the BIOS Main tab. Then press F10 to save settings and exit the BIOS menu. Shut the machine off again and try the ALT+F10 reset at least two more times. Jack E/NJ
