HP ENVY x360 - 15-bq051sa - Battery dead - Replacement Battery - or Hardware issue

HP ENVY x360 - 15-bq051sa
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi Guys

 

Still having battery issues. Went on leave for a couple of weeks and when I got back my Battery was showing 5%.   I tried all the usual tricks deleting and drivers etc  but it didn't change at all

 

I had to go away again for a couple of weeks so I left the laptop plugged in,  but when I got back the battery is now showing totally dead and the battery check says there is no battery fitted

 

Not sure if this is a hardware issue or whether I just need to replace the battery

 

I guess I will change the battery first however I I can't seem to be able to identify the Battery Part number so any advice on that would be helpful as well

 

Thanks in advance

 

Eddie

2) Expand “Batteries”. 

3) Right-click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed there. 

4) Click on “Uninstall”. 

5) At the prompt put a check in the box to remove the current driver 

6) Shutdown the computer. 

7) Remove the battery for a minute and then put it back in. 

😎 When the computer comes back up it should automatically find the driver. 

9) Go to Device Manager. 

10) Expand Batteries. 

11) Right-click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed there.
