Buying an HP Omen 880 is my biggest regret

HP Recommended
HP Omen 880-160se
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

At the time I bought it, it was around $1500. It had an i7 8700 with a GTX 1080. It has served me well over the last year and a half, but it has now suddenly decided to have problems pop up everywhere. A week or two ago, every time I tried to play a game, it would completely restart the PC. Now, every time I boot it up, I get a notice saying that a fan isn't working correctly, and it will shutdown within 15 seconds to protect itself. I am absolutely disappointed, as a PC like this should not die not even 2 years into its lifespan. I won't deny I loved it a lot while I had it, but now all I feel is regret and sadness. The greater part of my winter break has been spent to figure out how to fix it or what I can do, instead of actually being able to play on it. HP told me I needed to spend $400-$700 just to get it fixed. After college bills, I don't nearly have enough for that.

@Asmita6658 I was told almost a week ago that my issue was being escalated to the Omen team. I have not heard from them since. I have one week till school starts and I really need my Omen desktop to be fixed.
