    selected boot image did not authenticate

    I have a hp 2000 laptop running windows 8. When I turn it on, There is a black screen with a blue box that says selected boot image did not authenticate press <enter> to continue. but if i press enter it just turns off instantly. What is causing this, and how can i fix it? I have tried disabling secureboot and tried turning on legacy boot more, but it doesnt help. Changing the boot order didn't help
