Solved!

PC will only boot up with hard reset.

Envy 728
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My desktop no longer boots up when I shutdown using Power > Shutdown.  I only get the HP Logo screen whewn I try to boot up..  But if I give it a hard reset it boots up no problem.  I verified nothing in my Startup settings is causing the issue.  Any idea what the problem is?

@entrack,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

What is the exact model for your computer?

 

Meanwhile, I recommend you update the BIOS and the chipset driver from the below link and check if it helps.

My Model is 750-160QE.

Should I still use the link you provided?

Do you reccomend a full backup before I update the BIOS?

Which BIOS do you want to execite?

I recommend you download and install HP support assistant from the below link and it will automatically download and install all the latest drivers for your computer.

 

Here is how it is done.

  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

  6. Perform any other update management actions as needed.

    • Postpone an update: Click Remind me, and then select a time preference.

    • Delete an available update: Click the Delete icon  to remove the update from the list and record it in the action log.

    • Review updates status: Click Action log below the list to view installed, postponed, or deleted updates.

Hi The_Fossett

OK I made some progress. I was able to get updates from My devices.

The two updates listed with a yellow icon were

".Net application performance Enhancement" and "Essential System Updates for MS Win 10".

I installed both of them. It did an automatic reboot and came back up within a couple minutes.

I have tested several times since then.  When I Click Power > Shut down>  the HP logo screen appears anywhere from 4 to 5 1/2 minutes before getting the login screen. Which is better than before when the login screen would not come up at all.

When I do a Hard reboot, it only takes about one minute until I get the login screen.

Any idea why it takes so much longwe with a warm reboot?  As mentioned, I have done this several times with the same results.
