My Laptop Suddenly Died
I have a HP pavilion x360 14-ba163tx that I bought last year. I had no problems using it and I'm happy with my laptop.
Until last week.
On Wednesday, I turned on my laptop, charged it and used it to check a windows 10 update. After that, I put it on hibernate and put it back in my bag.
2 days later, I tried to turn it on but the boot logo won't show up. The LED power indicator turns on but then it turns back off. I plug in it's charger thinking it ran out of power. The charging LED also turns on. I tried turning it back on again but the screen still stays black. Then I noticed the fan and HDD running and the power indicator turns on for a little bit before they suddenly stop and start again by themselves over and over again until I manually turn my laptop off by holding the power button.
The next day, I brought it back to the store that I bought it from and they said it was the motherboard. I was very confused, because it worked fine on Wednesday and I didn't even turn it on until Friday night. They said the HDD, RAM and SSD still works.
I also don't really use my laptop that often nor do I use it for heavy programs. Only some like, Skyrim, Sims 3 & 4, Adobe Lightroom, Office and surfing the web. I also undervolted it so that it will run cooler while being stable because back then the laptop would get hot even when using it for surfing the internet.
My warranty ended last month and they said replacing it is basically buying a new laptop. I want to know what happened to my motherboard that suddenly died after one year. I had an acer laptop 3 years ago and it's still running smooth. I'm confused as to why my HP laptop died only after 1 year.
Any idea what happened and what I should do? I sent an email to HP but they haven't replied yet.
