    Please provide more information:
    - how long has this been happening?
    - what were you doing when it started?
    - what is the age and model of laptop and what was original OS?

    Do you have a recovery partition or recovery disk or system disk?

    Have you tried holding power button down for several seconds? Result?
    Have you removed battery? Result?

    Its happening from the past ten days.
    Nothing , I was just playing far cry 4 (which I already completed earlier once).
    Age of laptop- slightly less than 2 years.
    Model hp pavilion 15-n215tu
    Original os-win 8.1
    No I dont have recovery partition.
    Yes holding power button and killing the pc is my only choice and I dont like that
