Pavilion Gaming laptop ec-1050ax
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello I have ec-1050ax gaming laptop and it seems like the BIOS causing major issues with battery. about 1.5 month ago suddenly my laptop's battery stopped charging and when i ran HP Diagnosis tool to check battery, i got fuse blown error so I contacted the HP Service center and they replaced the battery. and Now after about 1.5 month of usage today i started having same issue. however I ran HP Bios update tool which i downloaded from HP's drivers download site. and it told me that the BIOS I am going to install is older than currently installed. however i continued anyway and It just didnt install older version but looks like re-installed the same BIOS again and surprisingly after finishing the Flashing process battery started to charging again and Fuse blown  error went away.

None this basically made sense to me so I thought i should post here and report about the issue with BIOS. I hope it gets attention to HP and investigate more into this and provide fixes.

I also have 2 questions :

1. My laptop stays plugged in all day so can this be causing this to happen?

2. I have also upgraded ram to 16 GB so can adding that cause issue?
