Hi, ive been looking on different sites about this and am still none the wiser so i thought id post here.
My standard charger for my laptop broke ( the inside pin bent). I noticed that there were usb and usb-c ports on the side of my laptop that had that lightning symbol we all associate with power/charging. I decided to buy a usb-c laptop charger but it doesnt charge the laptop. Am i doing something wrong? I know some laptops dont come with usb-c charging but my laptop was £750, id expect it to have this feature for that price.
Any help will be appreciated.

Your Notebook Model has the USB 3.1 Type-C™ Gen 1 (Data Transfer up to 5 Gb/s, DP1.2, HP Sleep and Charge) which is a Thunderbolt Port
This Port allows you to connects a USB device that has a Type-C connector, provides data transfer and charges most products such as a cell phone, camera, activity tracker, or smartwatch even when the computer is OFF.
It also allows you to connect a display device that has a USB Type-C connector, providing Display Port output
So basically you cannot charge the Notebook through the USB port Type -C

Thank you and have a great day 😊
