Hello, I have an HP Pavillion Laptop 15-cc1xx running win 10 64 bit version 2004, my laptop, when left idle, turns the screen off after 5 mins as per the setting, but doesn't turn back on(only power LED is on continuously and I hear the small sound of the fan running I guess or it might be of HDD also I don't know), even though when I press any key the moment it turns off the screen, it doesn't light up. This also happens when I put it to sleep the same thing happens only the screen turns off. This happens very randomly, sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't. Then I have to reboot by pressing and holding the power button. I'm fed-up doing this hard reboot and losing my data.
I observed that when this happens and the monitor turns off, the CPU light has stopped blinking, so I suspected that the laptop has turned the keyboard off and also the touch-pad and no electric supply is there, hence it doesn't accept any inputs. Even the external USB mouse doesn't light up after connecting, so the USB ports are also off, but when I connected the phone it started charging(only charging didn't detect PC).
Now, I've tried every solution of troubleshooting, updated each & every driver from device manager including graphics & firmware, checking "Allow this PC to wake" in power mgmt, resetting default in power options, disabled the Intel rapid storage technology's link power mgmt, resetting the PC, etc, but all in vain.
I had this issue before and this is how it started again,
I did a clean install of win 10 from the Microsoft site through USB removing all HP software then the issue got resolved. I think some HP software was causing this issue but I again did a factory reset using the HP cloud recovery tool which restored all HP OEM software, I did this factory reset because after BIOS update to F.34 from F.33, the PC was not shutting down completely only OS was shut down and power LED and fan used to be on. This shutdown issue only started after the BIOS update. Although after factory reset using HP cloud recovery shutdown issue has gone, but the screen and sleep issue has started again.
Now, I can do the clean install of win 10 from the Microsoft site using USB but I don't want to reset my PC again cause I've to backup my data again.
I've started the system test and by the way sometimes I'm even getting shutdown problems (I thought this issue got resolved) so according to hp site this might be the issue of Intel management engine interface. I have the driver version 1945 but the hp site said 9.5 works in most PCs so I downloaded ver 9.5 setup and I got this error "This computer does not meet minimum requirements to install this software".
So I want to downgrade this driver to check if that works but because of this error I am not able to do that.
