My out-of-warranty Spectre x360 motherboard died, just 2 months after the warranty expired. This exact thing seems to have happened to many other people with this laptop. I needed this machine for school and for work, and I paid top dollar for it because it should be reliable and powerful. It worked really well when it did work, but it suddenly died for no reason. I took great care with it, never dropped it, never ate or drank near it, kept it in a case and payed attention to the battery. There are countless other forum posts that depict a similar situation, and I hope this manufacturing error can be resolved quickly.
Hello! I called your customer service line, and they were extremely helpful. It seems that when I took the laptop to Best Buy, there was a misdiagnosis of the problem. They mistakenly told me that the motherboard had shorted, but one of your customer service representatives walked me through some steps to release a static charge that had built up, which caused the battery to deplete as a safety mechanism. Wonderful engineering! The laptop is back in perfect working order. For anyone else who had this issue, try holding the power button and the F6 key together for about 20 seconds while unplugged, and then try to charge. It worked flawlessly for me, and saved me hundreds of unnecessary spending in repairs. Thank you!
