    Many HP computers come with UEFI diagnostics.

    Power on and repetitively click the F2 or F10 key.

    Open the UEFI diagnostics.

    See if you have either or both extensive and loop until failure tests.

    If you have loop until failure start the test in the evening and in the AM see if it is still testing.
    It is designed to abort testing when it has a failure (even the battery).
    If it is still running in the AM that is a good sign.
    Press the keyboard escape key to end the testing.
    Confirm the pass in the test logs.

    Report into the thread the result of the HP UEFI diagnostic testing.
    Please include information on what hardware you were able or not able to test

    My computer does not have UEFI Diagonstics. It has a more basic diagnostic test, which I ran and it passed.

    I download and tried to install UEFI Diagnostics, both I get a Windows Installer error 1722 when I try to instlal it either to a new parititon or to a USB flash drive. I get the same error when I run it on another computer and try to install it to a flash drive.

    I was able to install HP Vision Diagnostics to a flash drive, and run that, and for example my SSD passes SMART and Extended Firsmware Self Tests (which is should do, as the drive is error free). However, the issue I'm having is a Windows issue rather than hardware one, so I don't know what benefit there will be from running any more tests.

    I was finally able to get my SSD working in the new computer by doing a backup using AOMEI Backupper, followed by a restore to dissimilar hardware. After this, when I booted, there was no BSOD, and Windows configured the new devices. After it finished configuring the devices, it went to a black screen and froze. But after powering the computer off and on, it booted to Windows, and is running fine.

    Thanks for your help.

    Your welcome.
    I'm glad that you got it solved.
    Please make a new backup image once you have a stable working system.
