Im posting this for a friend who is in need for help...about 4 months ago he had trouble with his notebook...every time he had more then 2 programs running his laptop would randomly just shut off. He sent it to hp and all they did was reformat it hoping that was the deal. Now about 3 weeks ago he tries to turn on his notebook and it doesn't turn on. Well with his luck the warranty has expired and it would be way to much money for them to fix it. So he brought it to a local shop and told them that hp said that the voltage converter board was the problem and it had to be replaced. The shop looked online everywhere and couldn;t find one and had to give the notebook back to my friend. my question is, if it's actually the voltage converter board, or if it's probably a different problem. it seems like that hp would say the the part that needs to be replaced is impossible to find anywhere else but them so they can make 300$ on a repair. what do you guys think?

I've seen such as the result of P2P software and other pests. Your post makes no mention of their PC usage, pest control.

The reload of the OS is a sign that the OS may have been damaged. Today, Microsoft and hardware makers don't warrant the software parts so when that goes south many owners are left without any idea what to do next.

From what you presented, at first glance it doesn't appear to be a hardware issue.

check one of the usb port if one of the pins in it are bent over and grounding out on the housing it will not turn on. we went through it with our desktop and that is what the problem. it would reboot for no reason and then it just not turned on one day. it was the usb port in the front of the pc. now it works fine.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
