Laptop: HP Envy 15 (15-1104TX)
I bought the laptop with the modifications below (aside from the hardware additions/replacements it was brand new)
Solid state disk - Corsair CMFSSD-256D1 (the only hard disk)
RAM - 16GB
The problem is this:
Sometimes I cannot boot the computer ( I get the first screen with HP logo, then a couple of minutes later black screen with white/blue text).
The problem is random/intermittent.
Currently I keep switching it ON/OFF till windows restarts.
I have tried shaking the computer (lightly), with and without power supplied, opening/closing the lid but have not really found any consistent pattern.
I also get the computer freezing on me when I leave it for an extended period of time.
In this case, the screen comes back on with the (windows) login screen but I cannot get past this (mouse still works).
I manually restart (as above) and system may boot first time if Im lucky.
I'm not sure whether it is a hardware or software issue... but this is really annoying and I have backed up all my files in case one day it never re-starts!

Who did the upgrade? Don't you have the originals?
ED: This sounds like a motherboard issue.
If it were a rattler. . . .
