I only started having this issue yesterday which is whenever I put the charger for my pavilion into the computer, it charges for a few seconds and then acts like it isn't inserted at all. However, if the computer is switched off, the computer then charges as per normal.
Hi@Deku_Mck04, Welcome to the HP Support Community!
I understand that you have anPavilion Notebook 15-AU058TX and the battery charges and then stops. You've done a remarkable job performing the steps.
While you respond to that, I recommend you to perform the following steps to isolate the issue and arrive at a fix:
NOTE: You may skip any steps that have been performed by you already.
Power off the laptop.
Remove the battery out. 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 the AC adapter.
Power ON the laptop.
Now let us uninstall the battery drivers and reinstall them. The following steps will help:
Open the device manager.
Expand "Batteries". Right click on the ACPI battery drivers and select uninstall. If there are multiple entries of the ACPI battery drivers then uninstall them all.
Close the device manager.Restart the laptop.
The Windows operating system will reinstall the battery drivers while restarting.
It is a good idea to download and run a BIOS update for your laptop via thislink. The charger must be connected until the BIOS update is complete to avoid any power interruptions due to battery draining out.
Post a successful BIOS update, you may check if the battery charges fully. If not then please perform the steps as described in detail in thisHP document. These steps help in testing and calibrating the battery.
NOTE: Please skip the steps mentioned in "Test and calibrate the battery using HP Support Assistant"
Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Thank you very much for the steps, however I have localised the issue to be the charger. As the computer and charger are a couple of years old, I decided to try the computer on a new charger and all issues were resolved. Because of this, I am going to replace the charger, along with the battery. Again, thank you very much for the steps to fix it otherwise.
