Hello, a month back while working on my laptop it suddenly shut down in the middle and it would refuse to turn on. I gave it to a HP authorized service center in my city and they said that there was a problem with the motherboard and they replaced it. Just 1 day after receiving the laptop it started having the same problem again. I gave it to the service center again and they fixed it. Worked fine for another 2-3 days and started doing the same thing again. It started working again for some time but it shut down in the middle again and refuses to turn on again. This is the 4th time I am having the issue and I will have to visit the service center the 7th time. The service center claimed they "fixed it". When you press the power button, the LED on the power button does turn on. Nothing shows up on screen. When plugged in the charging light is on and white. I have tried all troubleshooting steps told by HP Support Agent to pinpoint the cause but no luck. My laptop keeps having recurring failures and I am tired of not being able to work on my laptop since the last month because the service center failed to fix my issue the first time. The laptop is still under warranty. Can I ask for a replacement of my unit? What steps would I have to take to ensure I get a replacement?

Recommendation and solution
(1) In your case: Service is required !
- The computer should be disassembled and checked.
- [always recommended] Thermal paste for CPU GPU and bridges should be renewed
- [always recommended] The function of the fan(s) must be checked
- Short circuit test/repair
- bios/start chip test/reflash
- battery/power charger test
- General cleaning ...
HP warranty valid:
=> Contact HP Support, Service repair required !
No HP warranty:
If you can't do that, you should have it serviced by a professional notebook (chip level) repair store.
