Laptop is plugged in, LED shows power, BIOS recovery still wants to be plugged in. Seen this problem on several machines.
Suggestions? Besides dumping HP for somebody else?

I have investigated the power carefully with sophisticated tools and I think the firmware is configured wrong, it is not configure to be at the lowest ATX voltage etc
I have a 120W universal and it seems to solve the issue with 1V more to the input
this suggests the OEM brick has lost some voltage, so checking it under load, shows this to be the case

I managed to get the problem fixed, but on my HP Stream 7 when MSFT dumped Windows 10, it corruped the system and trashed the recover too.
I ended up using a lot of extra equipment to revcover the machine, but there are issues with Windows 10 on the tablet that I have reported to MSFT
