envy x2 keyboard

I have an Envy X2 Windows tablet+keyboard.  When the keyboard is docked to the tablet, the tablet will not boot - nothing displays.  When the keyboard is detached, the tablet works fine. 


When I plug the charger into the keyboard (whether docked or not), the charging indicator light on the charger plug does not light up.  When the charger is plugged directly into the tablet, it lights up.


Could this be a battery problem?

Hello pixseal,


Welcome to the HP Forums! I hope you enjoy your experience!


I understand your Envy X2 tablet does not boot if the keyboard is connected, and the keyboard won't charge. I will do what I can to assist you!


On some Envy X2 tablets, there is a BIOS update that could resolve the issue. However, I need to know which one you have first. Please let me know. Alternatively, I encourage you to try using HP Support Assistant. It may be able to detect the update and install it. More information on using this tool is found here: Downloading or Updating Software and Drivers for HP Computers


Of course, if the BIOS update does not work, the next step would be to contact HP phone support. They may have to service it, or could have an alternative fix.


Please respond as soon as you can. Thanks for bringing this issue to the HP Forums. Have a great day!



I worked on behalf of HP.
