Solved!

Turns on and off repeatedly

Example: 17-by0061st
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When I hit the power button - there is a slight flash of backlight on the screen, and the power light comes on.  The fan is running.  This starts and then stops after about 10 seconds and repeats the cycle endlessly.  

I have removed the back and the battery using the hold down the power button technique - but the computer will not boot.

@msclem Welcome to HP Forums Community!

here's what you need to do, start with a hard reset as per HP standards: Click here for details.

 

If Windows suddenly restarts without warning, or restarts when you try to shut it down, it might be caused by one of several issues. Windows could be set to restart automatically when certain system errors occur. A BIOS update can also resolve the issue. Use the information in this document to resolve issues with the computer restarting unexpectedly.

If the computer restarts unexpectedly and then does not start to Windows, see one of the following documents for steps to resolve this issue:

(By the end of this article all the issues should be resolved)

 

Also, have you attempted to capture any error message that appears before or after the device restarts?

Did you try updating the BIOS to resolve the issue? (If not, please click here to find and install it)

 

Let me know how that pans out,

The very first thing I tried was a hard reset. There was no change. I can't get to the bios screen to attempt an update. There are no error messages.

 

At any rate - Office Depot has agreed to replace the computer under some pressure because the unit is only 8 months old.  Thank you for your contact - but there is no need for follow up.
