Laptop keeps turning off
« on: January 25, 2018, 01:46:08 PM »
So, A few months after I bought my laptop it started to shut off randomly, seemingly just losing power. No matter what I did, it would not turn on, nor charge. I discovered that the way to fix it was by opening the laptop and detaching and reattaching the internal battery. This however was becoming quite annoying. Then the issue stopped, and that was the end of that, or so I thought. Now, it is back with a vengeance - over the last 2 days, has turned off 3 times already. If the battery was an external one, it would not be such an issue, I work out of the cloud so the local data is not a concern, it just takes a while to undo every laptop screw to get the entire thing opened...

OS - Windows 10 HP Envy 15T-AE000

good thought - no.

I think it has something to do with static electricity, but I don't know what.

if youre still under warranty send it out to them to diagnose it. Ive had mine sent multiple times unfortunately (although mine seemed to be overheating and then shutting off bc of it)
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

Try booting into the BIOS and leaving it to see if it shuts off there, if it stays on  without shutting off like usual, then its probably a problem with windows.
I just had a dell vostro laptop that wouldn't stay on for more than a minute, I replaced the motherboard and it works fine now.
