HP Recommended
HP 27-n250na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

For many months I a having issues with this all in one not fully powering down.  I have reset and tried all fixes and I still have no solution.  Many threads point to Intel Management Engine in sytems but mine does not show this and I dont have this available to change any settings.

@DipsK Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that the laptop will not fully shut down.


Don't worry I'll try to help you out.


Did you make any software or hardware changes on your laptop?


As you mentioned the issue still persists after trying out the steps.


Try the steps recommended below.


1. use windows key+x on your keyboard, to open device manager (you may use other means)
2. Locate system services and expand the trail
3. Locate and right click on "Intel (R) Management Engine Interface" then select Properties (or Just 
double click)
4. Select power management tap
5. And uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
6. Save it and close it.


1. Turn off Fast Startup

2. Go to Control Panel > Power Options > Choose what the power button does and click on “Change settings that are currently unavailable" and Uncheck "Turn on Fast Startup"

3.uncheck “Power Management

4. Go to Control Panel > Device Manager > System Devices > Intel Management Engine Interface > Power Management and uncheck the “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power” 


Try restoring the BIOS to default and check if it helps.


  1. Turn off the computer and wait five seconds.
  2. Press the Power button to start the computer and repeatedly press the F10 key to enter the BIOS setup menu.
  3. On the BIOS Setup screen, press F9 to select and load the BIOS Setup Default settings.
  4. Press F10 to Save and Exit.
  5. Use the arrow keys to select Yes, then press Enter when asked Exit Saving Changes?
  6. Follow the prompts to restart your computer.

Also, try running a system diagnostics test on your PC and check if the hardware components on your PC are functioning correctly.
