HP Spectre x360 power issue

HP Spectre x360 convertible model 13-ae008TU

HP Spectre x360 convertible model 13-ae008TU:


Had an issue earlier today where the laptop would not turn on for 5-10 mins after not being used for 10+ hrs and was at 20% charge when it eventually turned on. Since i have had a problem, the laptop will now boot, but whenever the laptop is moved (e.g. when turned  upside down to check the s/n it turned off and turned back on instantly), and has been doing so whenever its been moved.


on a side note there has been pressure damage to the top of the screen causing a radiating fracture, that has stopped the touch function but has not effected the display in any other way (2 month old damage) which may be causing some issues but due to the placement of the pressure damage i doubt it's related.

HP Spectre x360 power issue

@zac-sm Welcome to HP Community!

I recommend you boot into BIOS using the F10 key during a restart, check if the device turns off while you are in BIOS to determine the issue, if it does, this could be a hardware malfunction!

If it doesn't happen in the BIOS screen, please perform an extensive test using the below steps:


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.
