15" Omen Laptop battery question

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I just bought a 15-dc1030nr Omen laptop last week and overall have been really happy with it. I do however have a couple small nagging issues with it. 


The first issue is how loud and hot it gets when doing anything gaming related. I have read up on this a bit today and apparently creating a custom power plan may be all that is needed to reduce this. So I will give that a shot later. 


Second issue is the battery. I have had this laptop plugged in the entire time I have had it. I have been using it pretty steadily for the past week and on a few occasions I have glanced down at the battery power and noticed 95% displayed. This is kind of puzzling to me, also the fact that when I have noticed it, it's always 95% exactly. Is it possible that what I am doing on this computer is consuming so much power that the charging can't keep up with it? I am doing a lot of work with RTX ray tracing in Unreal Engine and a little gaming recently "with RTX enabled". 


I haven't done any tinkering with the system settings beyond what was given to me as options from Windows and HP as I set up the laptop originally.

@REZBLUE1 Welcome to HP Community!

Click here for steps to resolve overheating issues, you could try reducing the resolution on the in-game settings and switch the windows settings to performance rather than visual effects to make a minor change, however, the game may heat up your PC, hence make sure you are using a cooling pad as well, to be on a safer side.


Here's how you change windows settings:

  • Go to Start Menu > click on Settings.
  • Type performance > choose to Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows.
  • In the new window, go to the Visual Effects and select Adjust for best performance.
  • click Apply and Ok...this should do the trick.

I must let you know that its normal for a gaming PC to heat up, and with an Intel CPU such as the one you have, there's nothing to worry about, for details on why you don't need to worry: Click here to go through the CPU specifications, look under Tjunction of the CPU, it supports up to 100°C.


As for the battery issue, the laptop does with a smart adapter, it automatically stops charging when the battery is full, when it depletes eventually, the charger activates and recharges the batteries, eventually.
