I've searched to my wits end, I swear I've attempted everything and I am having no luck.
My HP Omen 15 (Model 15-ce020a) will no longer charge unless the lid is closed and the laptop is sleeping.
I have done everything - Deleted the battery management drivers and reinstalled, no luck. Pulled the hard-mounted battery, held down the power button, plugged it back in, nothing. Completely reset the system, nothing. Updated BIOS, nothing. Tried 4 different chargers (45W, 90W, 120W and 150W) and all act the same way. Laptop is updated to current firmware and applications across the board as far as I can tell. I have run battery diagnostic which shows OK, I have attempted to run the adapter diagnostic as well. It will run the diagnostic if I plug the charger in right before running the test, and it shows it is ok. If i try to run it a second time, it says to plug in an adapter, as if I have unplugged the one I am using - although I have not, and the light remains white.
Computer will recognize that it is plugged in for roughly 5 seconds before going back to operating on battery power. Charging light on the side of the laptop is illuminated white, goes orange when charging (of course, when it is off/sleeping).
Sometimes I will get the HP message notifying that the charger is not high-powered enough to charge the unit, sometimes i do not. I can't imagine this being something other than a software issue of some sort considering the unit DOES charge, when off. It again also shows the white light for the charger although it will not charge the battery.
I'm truly at a loss for words at this point - this machine is out of warranty by a few months (Ended in April 2019) and I seem to have run into a brick wall as far as diagnosis. Is my only option to take this thing to a repair shop and see if they can work some sort of magic?
Thanks in advance. Please, help!!

@Yurgens Welcome to HP Community!
I suggest you start with a hard reset: Click here for steps (as per HP standards)
When done, If the charger shows inconsistent power output values, I would suggest that you step into Best Buy or staples and try with a different battery and that should isolate the issue.
- Please try a different battery on the unit as well.
- Do not buy the battery and adapter. It is only for testing.
- Use spare ones that they may have. If it works correctly, then you could think of buying it.
Meanwhile, also, try the below
Since you've already reinstalled the battery drivers, please use this link: for battery testing and calibration

@Yurgens I seem to have missed on a few details, my bad, although, I have updated my post for you,

@Yurgens I understand your concern and I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP.
They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number.
Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact.
Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).
