HP Spectre X360 turning off

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So my laptop just started turning off suddenly. I can start it up, log in, and then after about a 1 minute or so, it just shuts off (as if someone just pulled the battery out). No shutting down warning, nothing. Just goes black. I have even tried restarting it after logging in and it doesn't want to restart. When I try to restart, it just goes black and shuts off again. Same thing when I try to shut it down. Anyone have any ideas? Oh, one more thing. Charging light blinks when I have the charger plugged in. I have tried taking out charger and pressing power button down 15 seconds. After doing that, charging like stops blinking, but after a minute of so, it'll start blinking again. Any ideas?? Laptop was purchased about 6 months ago, but warranty is expired due to being a refurb.

HP Spectre X360 turning off

Hi @Tom929,


Welcome to HP Forums, 

this is a great place to get support, find answers and tips,


Thank you for posting your query, I'll be more than glad to help you out 🙂

As I understand the computer is powering on but there's no display on the screen, The computer turns off after a few seconds after it's turned on,


To provide an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:


Was there any update/reset interrupted, recently?

Have you made any software or hardware changes on the PC?

Have you performed any steps on your own before posting on the HP Forums?


In the meantime, you perform the below steps:


Perform a hard reset (click here for details)


If the computer still turns off every few seconds, try with an alternate adapter and/or remove the battery and try turning on the computer without the battery,

only connect the adapter and start, let me know if that works.
