HP Omen 15 Battery switches off unexpectedly

HP Recommended
HP Omen 15
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi All,

 

My HP Omen 15 laptop is less than a week old and I have already encountered a problem.

 

I always use my laptop plugged into the mains, but today the battery light went off during routine use, after being on for an hour. I didn't notice until the battery power was at about 65%. I unplugged the laptop and replugged it in, but the computer failed to recognise the mains power supply. I tried several times to reconnect the power supply, but nothing worked. Eventually I switched the laptop off and waited a few minutes, then tried the plug again, and this time it worked.

 

Does anyone know if this is a common problem with HP laptops? This is the first HP product I have bought, so I don't know if anyone has encountered this kind of problem before.

I am not happy at the prospect of my new laptop having problems already.

I reviewed your post and I understand that the AC adapter is not getting detected sometimes.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

What is the product number of your computer?

 

Meanwhile, I recommend you update the BIOS from the below link and check whether the issue is resolved.

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

Hi The Fossette,

 

Thank you for helping with this issue.

 

My computer product number is: 13D29EA#ABU.

 

I have just had another problem with the battery. The laptop was plugged-in to the adaptor, and was charged at 100% when I turned it on. However, after an hour of moderate usage, I noticed that although the laptop was still plugged in and the adaptor was recognised, the battery life had dropped to 96%.

 

This is very disappointing from a brand new laptop, and I will not continue to put up with this. Either this issue will be sorted soon, or I will request a full refund of the laptop and the 3-year HP support package I purchased, because the item is faulty and not fit for purpose. I do not want to get into the situation where the laptop needs to be sent for endless rounds of repairs, leaving me without a laptop for weeks at a time.

 

I have clicked on the link you provided, and I have downloaded the new BIOS update. I do not yet know whether it will make a difference, but I will let you know either way.

 

Thanks again for your help with this. I know this isn't your fault personally, but I have spent a lot of money on a brand new laptop, bought directly from the HP Store, that seems to be faulty from the start.

 

Best wishes,
Paul
