You can do it the hardware "way" where you have to open your laptop and remove a battery inside the computer or can do it the software "way".. I would recommend you the software if you doesn't have tried to open a laptop before..

The issue might be with the hard drive. I recommend you to test the hard drive.
If the hard drive test fails, then it is confirmed that the issue is with the hard drive of your notebook.
Click on Testing a hard disk in HP notebooks in the below link to test your hard disk:

Compaq Presario CQ50-103NR Notebook PC stuck in sleep mode


Try and perform a Hard Reset onto your laptop.

Performing Hard Reset
1. Turn off PC
2. Unplug both battery and ac adapter
3. Hold Down on the power button for 30 seconds
4. Plug everything back in and turn it on.

When you are back at your desktop screen, change the sleep mode and display settings to 1 minute to see if you can wake it back up.
If not, then load into your BIOS by pressing F10 during boot up. Once in BIOS, press the F9 key and select "load defaults". Once you load defaults, press to F10 key again to save changes and exit. After that, search the hp website using your product # on your laptop to see if there are any BIOS updated for your product.

Try to boot into the BIOS - if you can't then it's a hardware fault and the laptop must be sent to a repair shop; if you can then Windows was severely corrupted - just reinstall it.
