Just bought an HP Laptop Windows 10 but everytime I turn on

Just bought an HP Laptop Windows 10 but everytime I turn on I get a blank screen. The only way I can get to my desktop is by pressing control, alt and delete. Then it allows me to sign in and get to my desktop.

Morning Richard. Computer still installing. Keeps going to 64% up to 67% then switches off and on. This happens a few times. Then goes to 93% up to either 94 or 97%. Then back to 64% up to 67. Been doing this all night!
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Still the same. I have to go out now. It looks like I may have to take the laptop back to PC World. It should have done it by my? I have left it. Will be about 1 1/2 hours.

There is a hardware fault with it Christine, this confirms it. You will need to return it sorry, but they will replace it for you under warranty.

Thank you for all your help. Nearly put a kiss on the end. That would have been embarrassing!
