I Live in Brazil and, early in February this year, i went to USA and bought one Notebook of HP.
When i returned to Brazil and started to use it, the brand new notebook started to randomly restart presenting different errors on the screen (please check the attached pictures).
This model is quite expensive and has excellent configurations.
After the restarting problems began i've made contact directly with the official support of HP in Brazil and, after two weeks of talking and suggestion of possible solutions, the problem wasn't solved and the Brazilian support just told me that they couldn't do nothing else because the product wasn't purchased on Brazil.
If i could turn back in time i definitely would have bought the notebook from another brand because of the way i was treated by the HP support in Brazil and by knowing that i have no support here. And i know that other brands gives full support on theirs products indifferently of the country, as i already checked.
I'm waiting one solution as quick as possible, since i use the notebook for working every single day.

Thank you for posting on HP Forums,
Riddle_Decipher is at your service.
As I Understand your computer is restarting several times and you need help fixing it as it was purchased in the U.S and the brazil support couldn't help fix the issue,
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:
Please correct me If I'm wrong but did I get the issue right?
Could you elaborate on the various steps you've done so far? so we don't end up repeating them.
While you respond to that, here's a few things you should know:
This issue is related or caused due to the below reasons:
Cause 1: Faulty RAM module
The most common cause of this error is a faulty RAM module that periodically gives read/write errors. If that’s the case, then it is advisable to scan the system memory and replace the faulty RAM module.
Cause 2: Corrupt or outdated device drivers
Sometimes the device drivers may become misconfigured, corrupt or outdated. That may also happen after a Windows update or a Windows downgrade from a newer system to an older one.
Cause 3: Anti-malware software is installed
Sometimes, certain brands of anti-malware software can corrupt the system memory, making this error to appear.
I recommend we start with performing a hardware test on the computer to determine if this is a hardware malfunction, here's a related HP Forums post that seems to have helped others: Click here for details.

The Brazilian support did some similar questions, i just installed some "Steam" games, civil engineering programs, like "AutoCad" that i use to have on my previous notebook.
Already formated the Pc once, like was asked by the Brazil support and the problems still on.
A friend of mine is an informatic technical and suggested that it may be related to memory RAM, physical problem on the board.
I use this computer every day for work and this issue is getting worse and worse dealing too many nuisance to me, and worse yet when i knew that the Brazilian support couldn't help.
I purchased it with these top configurations to have security and performance on work and my hours of leisure.
