Power supply/charger not enough

HP Recommended
Omen 15 dc0850nd
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone.

I've a hp omen 15 with a i7 gwn 8 and a 1050 ti. I've got the standaard 150w power supply. But when I play games like Tomb raider, my battery is slowly draining while it's plugged in. Any idea what this could be? Can the charger be faulty?

@Robbink, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

Let's try reinstalling the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery 

 

1) In the search box, type, and open “Device Manager”. 

2) Expand “Batteries”. 

3) Right-click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed there. 

4) Click on “Uninstall”. 

5) At the prompt put a check in the box to remove the current driver 

6) Shutdown the computer. 

7) Remove the battery for a minute and then put it back in. 

😎 When the computer comes back up it should automatically find the driver. 

9) Go to Device Manager. 

10) Expand Batteries. 

11) Right-click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed there. 

12) Click "Search automatically for updated driver software". Do the same thing with Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controller. 

 

Also, try updating the computer - 

 

Step 1 Windows Updates - 

1) In the search box, type, and open Windows Updates. 

2) Check for updates. 

3) If the updates are available, click on install and restart the computer. 

 

Step 2 HP Support Assistant Updates - 

1) In the search box, type, and open HP Support Assistant. 

2) Check for updates. 

3) If the updates are available, click on install and restart the computer. 

 

If the issue persists, Let's Run a battery test using F2 (during restart), if the test failed: 

Check with an alternate battery.
