OMEN by HP - 15-dc0016nf
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When the laptop is on it charges for like 5 - 10 seconds but then it just does not anymore, it used to have the "Plugged in, not charging." problem but after I updated windows because I thought it would solve the problem, then it started charging for 5 - 10 seconds when it was on, but it stopped. I have been having this problem for a while, I think a year and I'm sick of it so 

please, if you know how to, please tell me how to solve this problem.
Thanks!

Hi@deme1, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I understand you are getting plugged in not charging error on your laptop.

 

Don't worry I'll help you out.

 

Did you make any software or hardware changes to your laptop?

 

Have you tried charging your laptop using a different adapter?

 

As you mentioned you are getting error plugged in charging on your PC.

 

Check if the pin inside the DC or charging port is bent or broken.

 

Please perform the below-shown steps to resolve the issue:

Step 01. Click on the Start Button

Step 02. Type "Device Manager" in the start search box & open the Device Manager

Step 03. Look for Batteries and expand it by click on the + symbol on the left

Step 04. Right Click on "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" & uninstall

Note: This Battery driver will get reinstalled automatically when you restart the Notebook again

Step 05. Please Shutdown the Notebook

Step 06. Please remove the Battery and unplug the Power Adapter

Step 07. Press and hold the Power Button for a full 1 Minute

Step 08. Go ahead and put back the Battery and connect the Power Adapter

Step 09. Look for the "Plugged In Charging" message on the Battery icon

 

 

Also, try performing a hard reset on your laptop and check if it helps.

 

Please Shutdown the Notebook

Please remove the Battery and unplug the Power Adapter

Press and hold the Power Button for a full 1 Minute

Go ahead and put back the Battery and connect the Power Adapter

If the issue persists try updating BIOS on your PC and check if it helps.
