I've been happily using my HP Spectre 360 for a little over a year. I noticed right away that it runs quite hot, sometimes so hot that it can't be rested on my lap. Now it's suddenly stopped working. It cannot be powered on and does not respond to a hard reset. The warranty ran out 6 weeks ago and I'm left with a laptop with a failed/burnt out motherboard. From looking on the forums it seems that MANY other customers have had the same problem. I should not have to pay for a new machine, this was not a cheap purchase. I would like HP to stand by their product and take accountability for their faulty design and repair or replace this product that likely should have been recalled. Anyone have any experience in getting this fixed?
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, After reading your post, I did go through the Product specifications of your product and found that no recall program was rolled out for this model, however if it's a hardware related issue then HP can arrange a out of warranty repair service in order to resolve hardware issue.
Firstly, let's reseat the hard drive and memory.
Press and hold the Power button for 5 - 15 seconds to turn off the computer.
Disconnect the power cable.
If your notebook model features a removable battery, remove the battery.
Disconnect and reconnect the internal hard drive and Memory. For instructions, see the Maintenance and Service Guide for your notebook model. Locate these in the User Guides section of your notebook product page on the HP Customer Support website.
After connecting the hard drive and reassembling the computer, try to start the computer normally.
If reseating the hard drive and memory does not resolve the problem, I would request you to reach out to our Support and our Support Engineers should be able to check the available service options in order to diagnose the computer physically.

As another HP Spectre x 360 customer I have not seem anyone been able to get theirs fixed HP doesn't provide motherboard diagrams so a local repair shop isn't an option. You're only option is to send it to HP where you will probably just receive a refurbished laptop that will have the same problem in another year. The only question is if they will make you pay the 600$ or if they will cover it like for a few people.
