Power/Battery Issue

HP Pavilion PO86NA Laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Battery icon showing battery level incorrectly and power drain. Occasionally need to start up connected to mains supply.

New to the forum so hope this is enough information. I have completed an HP diagnostic test and it showed the battery as OK.

Power/Battery Issue



Welcome to HP support community.


Here's what I recommend (perform steps exactly as prescribed to resolve the issue)

· Unplug the charge and use the laptop until the battery drains to 15%.  

· Turn off the laptop and turn it back on after 30mins.  

· Reinstalled Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery under device manager,  

· Restart the computer and the issue should be fixed.
