HP Envy Laptop - Restarting Loop

I have an HP Envy 17 laptop. I’m fairly sure that it has some hardware issues. I had been using it for a few minutes, opened from sleep mode. I restarted it after I noticed it running a bit slow, but after I had logged in again nothing was opening. I used ctrl+alt+delete to restart it once again, and it is still restarting. This is the second time that this has happened (this being my laptop stuck on restarting for literally days). The first time it happened, I tried to force shut it down and waited a while to turn it on again but it skipped from going to the HP loading screen to just restarting. My question is, what do I do?? Other known issues involve superfetch, if that helps at all.

As a test. No more sleep for you.

Just shutdown and restart for now. It will take longer and you might have to clean up your startup items but I find this a good way to see if it is hardware. Troubleshooting sleep is long and hard work.

After that and if it works, try HIBERNATE instead. How did these tests work out for you?
