HP ENVY DESKTOP TURNING OFF RANDOMLY

HP Recommended
ENVY DESKTOP 750-114
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello 

I have an Envy Desktop 750-114 which I recently had to format  because there was no way of getting off the boot loop.

 

I reinstalled  Widows 10 upload the antivirus and started using my programs again but few days later it started to shut down randomly: I mean display the message "shutting down"and then turns off.

I ran the hardware diagnostic for several hours with no resuts (No problem).

I  ran  the SCF check from command:   but found no errors in windows.

I even changed the Microprocessor's fan thinking it was an overheating problem.

I have a GE force hdmi card for gaming and took it off and tried with the mother board only but still got the problem.

 

Any idea of what could be the problem ???

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

Here is a link with a "laundry list" of things you CAN do: https://windowsreport.com/random-shutdown-windows-10/

 

But, I would also provide the following cautions:

1) Do not download or install ANYTHING from that thread

2) Don't bother with the display drivers, as you already did that

3) Don't bother with the CPU temp, as you already did that

4) There's no BIOS Update, so ignore that

5) You already did the reinstall, so ignore that

 

Hopefully, one of the other suggestions in the thread will help.

I did everything according to the instructions given in the link.

Disable the video drive and select never to enter sleeping mode but I still have the problem.

Any other suggestion before trashing this computer?

 

Thanks

Problem solved.

It was the power switch that randomly short circuit itself.

 

I Troubledshooted by taking off the switch's plug on the mother board and putting a self made connector with 2 wires to mimic the switch, and the issue was clarified.

 

I changed the switch and the problem was solved.

 

Your HP people should look more into this since there can be hundreds of computers that may have the same issue and you people don't give a clue about what the real problem is .
