Battery Care Function in BIOS?

HP Recommended
HP Spectre x360 - 15-dfl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I keep getting the following message randomly on my HP Spectre x360.  I've had the machine almost 1 year.  I've tried to change it, but no luck. 


In reading how to access BIOS, I have find numerous posts on this website saying that its been disabled with consumer machines.  Why do I keep getting the same message? 


If the function is as handy as it seems, which is why the computer keeps telling me to change the setting, why wont HP allow customers to change it?hp battery screenshot cropped.jpg

Welcome to the HP support community.


Update the Bios, chipset and battery drivers using HP Support Assistant.

Download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link: Click here


HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook

  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

Also ensure Windows is up to date.

Select the Start  button, and then go to Settings  > Update & security  > Windows Update , and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available


Let me know how it goes.

To thank me for my efforts to help you, please mark my post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.

My Bios is updated.  Was this supposed to automatically change the Battery Care Function to 80%?  I actually started to get this message after the latest Dec 2020 update.   And I've noticed my laptop is still being charged to 100% when plugged in.  So if I have to change this manually, how do I access the Battery Care Function?

You can press F10 when you launch your PC and get into the BIOS/UEFI, you can find the power options in it
