@emerNOAUDIO That's quite alright, since you are certain this isn't a hardware issue, let's confirm the same by running an extensive hardware test on the device, here's how:
Install the latest version of the HP Hardware diagnostics (UEFI) on your device using this link: Click here for details
Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
On the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI) main menu, click System Tests.
Click Extensive Test.
Click Run once, or Loop until error.
While the test is running, the time remaining and test result for each component display on the screen.
If a component fails a test, write down the failure ID (24-digit code) for when you respond back to us.

That said, you mentioned that you had done a reset, I'll need to know, how was the reset attempted, did you make use of the HP Recovery partition (F11) or did you use the HP recovery media? If you don't have an HP Recovery media and have attempted reset using the windows troubleshooter or a retail copy of windows, you'll need to order a recovery media: Click here for steps Or you may also attempt to download the same using the steps on this link: click here

My warranty is outdated, I can't contact the support. My laptop is only 2 years old. So, that is the lifespan of an HP?
Your going to shutdown my display in the future too?
I won't recommend HP to anybody and I'll spread my experience. I feel I was robbed.
