HP Stream charging

HP Stream
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I have a cart of HP Streams that will not charge unless the device is open. They were plugged in for 2+days. The light beside charging port just blinks. If you take out the device, open, and leave plugged in, the device will charge. I need it to charge while closed in the cart.

HP Stream charging

@LionsTech
Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

  • Did this happen after a recent window or software update?
  • Did you try another charger?

  • Does the notebook shut down immediately (right after you unplug the charger)?

  • Do you get any error message on your notebook (Such as Plugged in, not charging, etc.)?

While you respond to that, let's try these steps: 

Hard Reset: Follow steps from the link: https://hp.care/2GnkMa8.

BIOS default: 

  1. Turn off the computer and wait five seconds.
  2. Press the Power button to start the computer and repeatedly press the F10 key to enter the BIOS setup menu.
  3. On the BIOS Setup screen, press F9 to select and load the BIOS Setup Default settings.
  4. Press F10 to Save and Exit.
  5. Use the arrow keys to select Yes, then press Enter when asked Exit Saving Changes?
  6. Follow the prompts to restart your computer. If the issue persists, follow next steps.

Run hardware diagnostics test on battery and Charger:

Use the following steps to open the Component Tests menu.

  1. Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
  2. Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
  3. On the main menu, click Component Tests.
  4. The Component Tests menu displays. Your Component Tests menu might be different, depending on the components installed on your computer.
  5. To run both tests simultaneously, in the Component Tests menu, click Power Source, and then click Run once. Each component can also be tested individually.

AC Adapter Test

The AC Adapter test provides an interactive test to determine if the AC power adapter is functioning properly. A good battery is required for this test. Before running the AC Adapter Test, HP recommends verifying that your computer can receive power by connecting a known working AC adapter.

Follow these steps to perform the AC Adapter Test.

  • In the Component Tests menu, click Power, and then click an AC Adapter Test.
  • Click Run once.
  • The AC Adapter Test begins.
  • When the test is complete, the results are displayed on the screen.

Battery Test:

Follow these steps to perform the Battery Test:

  1. In the Component Tests menu, click Power, and then click Battery.
  2. Click Run once. The Battery Test begins.
  3. When the battery test is complete, the results are displayed on the screen. For additional battery information, click Battery Details.

If the test passes, continue with these steps:

1. Go to Start, search for Device Manager, and open this result.

2. Expand batteries.

3. Right-click on the ACPI option (usually the 2nd option) and select delete or uninstall. Follow the prompts.

4. Shut down the computer. 

5. Disconnect the charger.

6. Remove the battery.

7. Hold down the power button for 1 minute.

8. Insert the battery only.

9. Attempt to turn the battery on.

 

If possible, try an alternate charger.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

HP Stream charging

Hello, 

I did not try different chargers. They charge but only if the device is open. If the devices are closed and plugged in, they will not charge. The light just keeps blinking and the battery is still low. So, they devices shutdown because the battery is low. Once fully charged, while being open, the battery shows a full charge and the devices stay on. No, there was not an error on the devices. When I opened the devices, the icon actually shows that the cable is corrected and the light is blinking as if it is charging. These devices are new. I will try your other suggestions.
