    Since you've determined there are no hardware issues, you have no reason to use the techs at the store or support from HP.

    As several of us have stated, this will be your solution.
    It turned out not to be.
    Did a clean install and the HP acts up worse than ever.
    Screen blacks out every three seconds, cursor freezes, start-menu unresponsive, the fan blows full speed all the time and several occations in just one hour running time of blue screen saying that windows has problems and needs to restart.
    Before I could use the computer if I was patient,-now it's impossible to use for even the simplest of tasks.
    Non of the advice given has changed anything.
    Thank God I burned a back-up image. Win10 is now restored to it's original state.
    This computer is going to be returned, and I will claim to get a new one.

    I had that same thing happen a few years ago, but with a Toshiba. Took it back to Best Buy and got my current HP 17" Lappy. She still works fine after multiple upgrades and then multiple Windows 10 updates. I also had the local mom & pop install more RAM and an SSD hard drive a couple years ago.

    It's almost a given that you have a lemon and should take it back immediately.

    You're quite right,-it's a lemon. I'll bring it back.

    Just as an FYI, the software doesn't alter the warranty. The clean install is a great way to diagnose hardware issues. You can return a computer without the factory image, as a clean install is part of the troubleshooting.

    Glad you got it sorted out, but these are the steps almost all of us follow when buying a new computer. The reasons for doing so are to save all the time you spent with this ordeal.

    I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to 10. I love it when it works, but I hate it when it decides to not work and crash usually over a minor thing.

    Nothing wrong with Win 10. You just have crappy computer hardware. Don't have any problems with my desktops which were built for me. Running on 4 machines.
    My Dell laptop just gave me problem because of a bad video update from Dell. People bitch about every Windows version wether
    it works or not. It is the nature of Windows users.

    I hear you! Some developers has taken all this to the extreme and it's really terrible.

    Not everything is suited for an appy look. But the issue today is in the app design itself. If you run an app on a 5" phone screen with only touch capabilities, then the UI must be fitted accordingly, but lets say you run exactly the same app on a 32" QHD display using mouse, there must be a completely different set of features easily available and represented in a convenient way, without forcing the user to look at elephant sized icons and all menu options hidden behind a hamburger-button.

    I don't think all developers or their designers has thought this thing quite through. The key word here is "SCALABILITY" which many apps take advantage of very poorly. Small screen with decent resolution -> hide most stuff and completely disable some features. Big Screen with high resolution -> a lot of real estate -> use scalability to keep everything at readable sizes but cram all features available in the app as close to the main view as possible. Meaning show as much info as possible in the workspace and DO use menus or equivalents for quick access.

    For Stock/FOREX trading I don't need a "classical interface". 99.99% of the time all I do is click on a few important buttons, adjust some parameters and do a few swipe gesture on charts. For trading, an app is perfectly fine on both mobile and PC. Only the real estate is a lot bigger on a PC which makes it easier to get the big picture by having multiple charts open side by side. I don't need any menus at all for making money in trading. :)
    A one size fits all is MS's major problem.

    Hardware issues is always a possibility, but I did run HP PC Hardware Diagnostics tool and no hardware problems were found.
    Also the computer behaves well in safemode.
    Should I blindly trust the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics tool ?
    Maybe I shouldn't?

    Have you gotten to a state where your Windows has been clean installed?

    Here were the steps to take:
    1. Download and Install Macrium Reflect Free
    2. Create a full backup of the whole hardrive in your HP-laptop
    3. Download Windows Media Creation Tool
    4. Create an bootable ThumbDrive with appropriate Windows Edition of version 1709 using the MCT
    5. Boot from the ThumbDrive and wipe all partitions clean when Setup asks where to install Windows
    6. Let the dust settle (windows installs drivers and configures a few thing)
    7. Don't manually install anything else on the system and verify Windows runs smooth
    8. Make sure Windows got activated
    9. Install all software you need
    10. Problem solved

    I've burned an image on DVD's and downloaded Win 10 from the microsoft server, burned it to DVD and did a clean install.
    Computer ten times worse so I installed the original image.
