Laptop randomly turns off

Envy P106
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I have an Envy P106 laptop. It will randomly turn itself off. I replaced the battery yesterday and it happened again today. The laptop and battery are not hot at all. I usually have to wait about ten minutes or so before I can get it to turn back on. Suggestions?

Laptop randomly turns off

Hi @Lks1102


Welcome to the HP Support forum.



How often did this happen ? When did it start ?


** If your PC shuts off with a warning from Windows (some message on screen), then this might be software issue and is connected to Windows (e.g. Windows Update) , some 3rd party software (good or bad). Do you get some blue screen message/warning ?


** If the PC shuts down without any warning, it could be hardware issue.

Please, check this article for reasons for the PC to turn off unexpectedly - could be motherboard, battery, overheating, etc....




Follow the instructions in the articles. Also download and run the free Speccy to check the hardware's temperature >




 Please, perform some basic hardware checks


1. Please, shutdown the computer using the power button

2. Power it on.

2.1 As soon as you press the power-on button, immediately begin hitting the Esc button (like tap-tap-tap).

This should open a HP Startup Menu


3. Choose F2 to open System Diagnostics. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform System Test >> Quick test.

This will check major hardware componets for issue (do it just in case) . Here is more info >>


If there are no system checks/no quick tests, perform HDD and RAM check.

If there is a Component tests, you may also test the Motherboard and battery


Let me know the test results.



Please, let me know the results from Speccy (temp) and provide an update.
