2 years ago I decided to splurge on an HP omen gaming laptop. I have bought HP for over a decade, multiple desktops that all worked perfectly for many years. Now fast forward to now, 2 years into a much more expensive gaming laptop. Worked alright, had some screen issues with dead and off colored pixels, nothing major that detracted from it being used, only noticable on dark scenes. Now the last time I turned it on, nothing but a blinking led power button, I have been through every diagnostic I can find and had 2 experts look at it and tell me it is the motherboard and would need to be replaced. So understand my frustration with finally going for a higher end model for it to crash and burn just 2 years into having it, when all of the cheaper things I have owned lasted 5 to 7 years and still going. So it seems the higher expense in these HP gaming machines is certainly not buying you higher quality or reliability. Does anyone from HP have any ideas as to how I address this or am I up the metaphorical creek and destined to spending 700$ on a new motherboard to revive it? Or do I look elsewhere for gaming computers? For that kind of money they certainly should last longer.
I apologise I dont believe I explained well enough. The screen had no issue last time it powered on. The issue is now that it will not power on at all. No fans spooling up no screen activity of any kind. All that will happen is the power button LED will blink every few seconds. Power supply has been tested, battery has been replaced, no change. Computer techs said it is a motherboard issue but could not say exactly what. Potentially in power distribution? It went from working well to nothing at all.
