“Mousepad and keyboard aren’t responding”
“Whirring noise/loud fans”
If the computer is overheating, you might experience a lag or unresponsive mousepad and keyboard and/or your fan struggling to produce enough circulation to cool down your computer.
If your device is getting hot and unresponsive, this overheating could be caused by too much dust in your device. A cleaning of the device’s vents could fix this problem. Use this guide to get inside to the fan to clean.
If this doesn't fix the issue there could be an issue with your battery or power cord. See here for how to find out or replace these.

“Keys on keyboard aren’t working”

Could be a sign of overheating if paired with more symptoms such as listed above.
If not a sign of overheating, replace keyboard/mouse with this guide.
“My screen is cracked”
"My screen is unresponsive"
"Touchscreen isn't working"
The screen digitizer may need to be replaced.
Use this guide to replace your screen if it is cracked or if the touchscreen is otherwise not responding to your touch.
“My USB ports don’t work”
“The USB ports don’t recognize my devices”
Software may need to be installed or updated before any USB is plugged into the USB ports. For notebooks, do not use a USB port replica/hub instead plug the USB directly into your notebook’s USB port. The chipset drivers are the hardware that is connected to the USB ports and help your notebook recognize the USB, so it may need updating which can be found in your notebook programs, labeled as HP Support Assistant.
