I bought Omen 15 DC100 CTO in June 2019. Warranty Expired. Has Windows 10 Pro 2004.
Everything was working great.. but then there was a BIOS update to version F.16 Rev.A released in April 2020.
I upgraded the BIOS from F.03 and like a foolish guy I didnt backup my OLD BIOS. After the Upgrade it worked for a week and on weekend while working the Laptop suddenly did an auto hard shutdown as if battery depleted 100%. when I switched on it gave me error BIOS checksum ERROR. I did a hard reboot and it rebooted normally, I again did a Bios Upgrade and created a USB just in case...
Another week passed and a LOW Battery popup came, whereas I was plugged in and it was 100% charged. I removed the charger to check and it gave me 1.45 Hr backup till fully depleted. I played games and worked on multiple remote servers. after 2 days it gain happened a popup came and it was again plugged-in then I started giving different indication while working that charged level 20% Plugged-in, sometimes when 65% on battery and I plugin charger it says plugged in.. it does not say Charging. I have to shutdown my laptop and keep it plugged in and only then I get my battery charged.
I again got a BIOS Checksum ERROR and this time I did upgrade from USB. all went well for 2 weeks and all this time my battery gave me upto 2HR backup every time. now again I am getting Plugged-in and Low battery warnings.
I did a test of Battery, Charger all went well. still I am getting low battery and Plugged-in notification. after a BIOS update everything works well for sometimes and then back to square one.
Does someone has F03 BIOS backup and share it with me, so that I can revert to my OLD BIOS when everything was working fine.
How to add/attach screenshots to my post for referance??
If the issue persists, after the above steps, try the below:
Turn off the notebook.
Plug the notebook into a power source using the power adapter.
With the notebook off, press and hold the Windows logo key and the B key at the same time.
On some notebook models, it might be necessary to press and hold the Windows logo key and the V key.
While pressing those keys, press and hold the Power button on the computer for 2 to 3 seconds, and then release the Power button but continue to hold the Windows logo key and the B or V key until the HP BIOS update screen displays or you hear a beeping sound (usually 8 beeps).
The HP BIOS Update screen displays, and the BIOS update begins automatically. This might take several minutes, and you might hear additional beeping sounds.
If the HP BIOS Update screen does not display, repeat the previous steps. If the issue persists after repeating the steps, skip to the next step to Download a replacement BIOS file.
If the Power light turns off, the notebook has turned off because the Power button was held too long. Repeat the previous steps, making sure to hold the Power button for 2 to 3 seconds only.
