Laptop keeps freezing randomly but frequently

HP Recommended
Hp pavillion x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So my laptop gets completely frozen and stuck at random times and its getting really frustrating. I tried calling support but it doesn't seem to be working and I am just losing all patience. I cant do any work on this device. I am scared that i will just end up with this expensive machine which doesn't even work. My 20k rupees laptop works better than this 😕

 

Please just share any information that could help me. I tried so many trouble shooting options like bios update, drivers update, windows update, hard reset (local reinstallation) , etc.

Welcome !

 

Is this is a brand new laptop (purchased recently) or you have been using it for a while ? If the second, then what changed, what is new in the situation ?

 

Let's start with this. Open this article >here< and follow the purple button (Chat now). Follow the interactive Virtual Agent's troubleshooting steps.

1) Try first with "Randomly or right after start up"

2) Try also with "With certain apps or programs"

 

Basically, it will guide you to perform hardware tests to rule it out hardware problem.

Also, it will ask you to update Windows, BIOS, drivers, apps

It may ask you to scan for malware/viruses, consider overheating.

 

 

Follow the steps exactly as they are. Note it may take a while to complete them, so be patient and be prepared.

 

Let me know how it goes and provide detailed reply what happened. Thanks!

I bought it 4 months ago. But it always had this problem, it used to freeze at random times but not as frequent. These days its very frequent. I have to force shut down it every time it freezes and my laptop is getting slower because of that. 

It feels like Ive developed this phobia, whenever i touch my laptop i am scared to find out that its frozen yet again. And it's messing up my anxiety really bad. I need this to work fine for my college work.  

 

I've tried that virtual agent thing you suggested, most of the steps didn't help me and then it suggested advanced troubleshooting which i am not really comfortable with doing it myself. Isn't there any way an engineer can be arranged who can come to my house and do it? Or maybe i can take this to a service centre and they should do it for me? It's still under warranty so i assume that wouldn't be a problem.

Hello @Abhishek1618 

 

The forum here is not the official way to reach to HP support so I cannot arrange service for you based on your post here. There are various users, experts, technology enthusiasts here in the forum. You can explore warranty service options here >> https://support.hp.com/in-en/contact-hp

Usually phone or Whats Up contact options where you will get in touch with HP Support department.

 

Based on the type of your warranty and coverage types, there will be different options available (onsite visit, bringing device to service/offsite warranty, etc)...

I have been in contact with 3 support agents by now. None of them could fix the issue, and they even closed my case-number for some reason.

It requires a 32GB pendrive and i don't have it. I cant buy it now because i am a student with a tight budget, and i already exhausted all my savings in buying this Laptop. I hope you understand.

I don't understand why i have to do all the work and purchases when my laptop is under warranty. Isn't there any way i can take this to support centre and they fix it for me? It's under warranty after all.
