battery&charging problem

HP Envy

The battery never charges completely, only up to 80% and has a maximum autonomy at least of 1 hour. With the cable plugged in sometimes it suddenly stops charging, then restarts; I've alredy tried to replace the cable, with a new one, the problem is always the same. The laptop also no longer gives the signal "low battery" before turning off, it suddenly turns off even if the battery still gave autonomy.

@mari25, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

Let's try reinstalling the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery 

 

1) In the search box, type, and open “Device Manager”. 

2) Expand “Batteries”. 

3) Right-click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed there. 

4) Click on “Uninstall”. 

5) At the prompt put a check in the box to remove the current driver 

6) Shutdown the computer. 

7) Remove the battery for a minute and then put it back in. 

😎 When the computer comes back up it should automatically find the driver. 

9) Go to Device Manager. 

10) Expand Batteries. 

11) Right-click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed there. 

12) Click "Search automatically for updated driver software". Do the same thing with Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controller. 

 

Also, try updating the computer -
