If it can be fixed, it will most likely need the Omen Control Center reinstalled.
If you can find it currently in your list of Programs, uninstall it.
Then reinstall it with this link... sp76864.exe
Then also install HP System Event Utility sp91504.exe
If that does not work, did it happen recently?
If so, if you can roll back Windows to a previous restore point from the time it started, perhaps that would help.
Otherwise, there is a controller on the board that might have went out. I would not be able to help you at that point.

@krzemien Thanks. Unfortunately the OP never responded to that thread again. I would like some confirmation this time from a user if the newer version of the System Event Utility Version: 1.40 REV: A PASS: 33 August 10, 2018 SP91504.exe
or if version1.40 REV: A PASS: 11 March 15, 2016 SP75216.exe is working for them.
It might be the system has install the newest App version from MS and that is what has bricked the Control Center.
The Control Center is the same version we both linked.
@d3rr1ck1234 Would you please try the first solution and if it does not work, try the second one so I can confirm what version of the Event Utility works please.
Thank you both.

I do reference this post all the time as:
1. It does work for me
2. It did work for numerous others individuals, some examples:

I understand your point, but:
I wasted good few tens of hours - also with HP Support - trying to get to the bottom of it back in 2018. To no avail: HP Support suggested obviously restoring PC back to the factory stage - that I refused to do then and never had to ever since.
My post from then that I referenced here is the outcome of investigation that I conducted myself. And also forms a solution.
It does work for me. And for others. And it's quickest applicable one.
Life's literally too short to faff with this nonsense for too long - especially as HP will claim that our PCs and their software are definitely out of support by now (Omen 870-xxx series being replaced by 880-xxx in 2018 already).
Just my thoughts.

Absolutely agree! 😊
I probably should of asked @d3rr1ck1234 if he would open his installed programs list and see what version of the Event Utility is installed. HP's Event Utility is now another MS App from the MS Store. It wasn't getting pushed out automatically in updates when it first came out, but I think it is now. If its the culprit now, I can report it.

Is it pushed via Microsoft Store to older (870-xxx) machines? I doubt - I think it would require newer HPSA (v9.x), which these machines do not support (I'm on HPSA v8.x - installed v9 manually but it reverted back on its own to v8.x).
The only HP Event Utilities that are available for 870-xxx can be downloaded from there:
But I can see that metadata on above page for all packages is completely wrong as all packages are shown as 1.40 Rev.A...
And v1.4.11 that I use and that does work is even not there...!
It only strengthens my case further.

It might be pushed, I'm trying to confirm, no matter what version of HPSA. Its coming in via Windows updates, not the HPSA.
I don't recommend using the HPSA for bios updates either. Its been known to cause issues occasionally.
