@troblmakr4evr

 

I have gone through your Post and I understand your concerns

 

Are you using the correct AC Adapter for your Notebook?

 

Please reinstall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery

 

Step 01. Click on the Start Button
Step 02. Type "Device Manager" in the start search box & open the Device Manager
Step 03. Look for Batteries and expand it by click on the + symbol on the left
Step 04. Right Click on "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" & uninstall
Note: This Battery driver will get re-installed automatically when you restart the Notebook again
Step 05. Please Shutdown the Notebook
Step 06. Remove the Battery and unplug the Power Adapter ( For Notebooks with Removable Batteries )
Step 07. Press and Hold the Power Button for full 1 Minute
Step 08. Go ahead and put back the Battery and connect the Power Adapter and restart

 

Next update the BIOS from this Link: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers

 

If the issue persists run a Battery Test to confirm the Hardware Functionality

 

- Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
- Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. 
- When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
- On the main menu, click Component Tests and Power > Battery

 

Let me know how it goes 😊

The adapter was working fine for over a year and just recently stopped showing plugged in. I have tried the bios update and the reinstalling the driver no luck. when I did the hardware check on the battery and ac adapter it said it was bad. so I bought a new one and same problem.
