@ər Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you are unable to charge the laptop.


In that case, I would suggets you perform the battery and adapter test and let us know.


1. Power off the PC and make sure that it is completely powered off.

2. Press the power button and the moment you press the power button immediately start tapping F2 key, you should see the system diagnostics screen.

3. Look for the component test, under that all the hardware will be listed, please choose Adapter and battery and initiate the quick test.

Note: If it fails it will generate a 24 digits alphanumeric failure id, please capture that.


Keep us posted,
