HP Slate 21 wont boot from power on or factory reset

Product Name: HP Slate 21

My HP Slate 21 keeps refreshing the hp log every 2-3 secs and wont boot from power up or from reset - any idea what this could be and any help tips apart from repair? Regards Tim

Thank you for replying,


If you've already performed a hard reboot by following the below steps:
Press and hold the power button for more than eight seconds. After the computer fully shuts down, wait a few seconds, and then press the power button to turn on the computer.


And yet the issue persists, I would recommend you contact HP phone support to setup a hardware service as it's a hardware malfunction.


Keep me posted,
