Hi @omkakad01,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community. 

 

I'd like to help!

 

I recommend you perform the following steps to isolate the issue and arrive at a fix: 

  • Power off the laptop.
  • Remove the battery. If the battery is integrated and does not have a latch to release it then leave the battery inside the laptop.
  • Disconnected AC adapter from the laptop.
  • Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
  • Reconnect the battery and plug in the AC adapter.
  • Power ON the laptop.

 

Let us uninstall the battery drivers and then reinstall them. The following steps will help:

  • Open the device manager.
  • Expand "Batteries".
    Right-click on the ACPI battery drivers and select uninstall.
  • Close the device manager after you have uninstalled all the ACPI battery entries. 
  • Please restart the laptop. While restarting, the Windows operating system will reinstall the battery drivers automatically. 

 

Manually Calibrating the battery" from this link

 

if the above steps did not fix the issue. You may have to contact HP internal support.

 

I sincerely hope this fixes the issue. Please feel free to keep me posted. All the best! :slightly_smiling_face:
