Product: HP Pavilion x360 Convertible 14-dw1xxx
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
My laptop gets completely frozen at random times (usually after the startup) and it stays frozen unless I turn it off manually using the power button. Every time it's frozen, it releases a lot of extremely hot air from the outlet.
I have not made any software or hardware changes.
I have performed all the diagnostic tests ( fast and extensive both), they gave no errors.
It's not a software issue since I've resetted the pc and the issue is still present. I even used Linux for a week and it still kept freezing.
Whenever I call for support they keep telling me to do the same things again and again (their ultimate solution seems to be cloud recovery but as I said, I don't think the problem is in the software or it wouldn't have frozen when I used a different operating system)
I tried all sorts of things. I've updated bios, drivers, installed all the updates but nothing seems to ve working.
I couldn't even install windows 11 since my pc got frozen every time i tried to install it and it had to be manually powered off.
Please give me some suggestions!

The one factor that is common in ALL of these issue is hardware -- and the most common hardware causes of lockup are memory sticks and overheating.
Your mention of hot air implies the second issue, rather than the first,
If you don't have a CPU temp monitor installed, then I can recommend trying CoreTemp -- which you can get from here: https://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
Different CPUs run at different temps, so I can not provide a hard and fast temp to watch for, but at least with this, you might be able to monitor the temps to see if the CPU is overheating.
