The event viewer shows the following error:

This has occurred several times.  What would you do to troubleshoot this?

You appear to have a USB problem at startup. This could be a hardware issue or a USB Software issue. In most cases, USB drivers are handled by Windows, but you can check the HP support site for USB drivers and it they have such drivers, update them.

Can you start reliably in Safe Mode ? (Press F8 at startup). You can troubleshoot USB drivers in Safe Mode.

By the way, do you have a USB key inserted or USB drive connected?  If so, try disconnecting these and then starting up.

Boot into safe mode (F8 key on startup) and uninstall the webcam from device manager - it operates on the USB interface but is listed under "Imaging Devices".
If that doesn't help, do the same again and uninstall the SD card reader / flash memory device.
If this still doesn't help, boot into safe mode and uninstall ALL devices under USB Interface Controllers.

But - before you do any of these steps, make sure you have unplugged all USB peripherals from the laptop.

what usb devices are connected?
if you have several, try disconnecting them 1 by 1 to check which one it is
alsos- check device manager - there should be a device in error, and it's properties can show which one it is
