Q: HP Pavilion X2 12-b020nr detachable dock drains battery whil...

Hello everyone, New to forums here but have been a regular reader ? My Pavilion X2 12-b020nr detachable laptop has been having a battery drain issue while shutdown over the past few months, and I've finally isolated it to the detachable dock. It'll usually drain 3-4%/day while shutdown and keyboard dock attached.The battery does not drain (across 24h) while shutdown/detached or while the charger is plugged in. I'd like to find out if anyone knows how to disable power to the dock while shutdown.I promise that I am shutting down the computer and not hibernating, sleeping, etc. Relevant details:Windows 10 64-bitBIOS F-16 (and unable to find any options in BIOS)Fast boot IS disabledHP Battery utility and diagnostics shows normal battery (other diagnostics normal as well) Any thoughts? I've probed around the Device Manager and BIOS, but to no avail.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hello @blue0318, Thank you for posting on the HP Forums! I have read your post and understand that your HP Pavilion x2 - 12-b020nr is not booting. I want to help you resolve this issue. When the Caps lock button flashes for one second, does it continue in a cycle or does the notebook shut off on it's own?If the notebook shuts off on it's on, does it turn itself back on and off in a cycle? Please begin with a hard reset. Once that is compelte, please follow this troubleshooting document: HP Notebook PCs - Performing a Hard Reset or Forced Reset I look forward to your reply!

Hi, I am searching for a compatible external battery for my Pavilion x2 12. However, I am discouraged by this thread :http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/threads/hps-usb-c-charger-lock-crisis-explained.69523/ Looks like HP locked down the USB type-C charging port which only accept HP charger. However, there are times when I am not near a power outlet and on the go. I need an external battery. This also prevented users from passing though power when using USB docks, which is bad. It seems that there is no external battery available for Pavilion x2 12, am I right? Or is there any BIOS setting that allow me to turn off the charging DRM?

I have a HP Pavilion X2 Product Number F5W70UA#ABA. I have been having trouble since I bought this just a few short months ago. The battery drains within an hour or 2 whenever I put the machine to sleep (close the lid, put in sleep mode, etc.). I have updated the BIOS and all the latest drivers. It helped ensure I could wake up the machine, but the battery keeps draining and I am at my wits end. I have also gone through many forum postings on this issue and have run the HP Battery Test as well as checked all the power management settings and they appear to be set up properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. - Jim

A:HP Pavilion X2 Battery Drains when in Sleep Mode

Hi DontLoveWindows, From the information that you have given me, it is showing that you have 2 anti-virus softwares installed. Avast and Norton, that are continuously running when the printer is in sleep mode, which would be draining your power. It also shows that your printer has missing or misconfigured drivers which could be using power as well. Here is an HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers download for your printer. I suggest that you Disable your startup software. To do this: Right click or touch and hold the bottom left corner of the screen and select Run.Type msconfig in the Run box, and then press Enter. The MSconfig window opens. If the User Account Control window opens with the message, Windows needs your permission to continue, click or tap Continue to close the window.If Normal Startup is currently selected, follow these steps:Select Selective Startup, and then clear the Load Startup Items check box.Click or tap the Services tab, and then select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box at the bottom of the screen.Click or tap Disable All.If Selective Startup is currently selected, follow these steps:Click or tap the Services tab, and then select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box at the bottom of the screen.Make a list of the items that are selected. You will need this list to reset your computer startup items later.Click or tap Disable All.Click or tap Apply.Click or tap OK. A new window displays.Click or tap Res... Read more

I have a HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC (Product Number F6C70PA#ABG), and since I have upgraded to Windows 10 (current version 10.0.14393) last year I have had nothing but trouble with it. 1) First, when I use the shutdown option in the power menu, the notebook will not turn off; the screen goes black but the fans continue to run, and the Wireless Antenna light goes orange but does not turn off. The power button in the top left also stays lit. The only way to turn the device off properly is to hold the power button down for 5 seconds. 2) But even when I turn the power off by holding down the power button, I have recently discovered that the notebook is still draining power. If it is turned off, and the AC power removed, the battery is completely drained when I next come to try and turn it on. This is despite the fans not running while the power is turned off in this fashion. 3) Also recently, when booted up the notebook takes an excessively long time. After approximately 2-3 minutes from power off, the notebook will display the coastal scene. I press the up key or click my mouse to bring up the login box, but the login box takes another 2-3 minutes to appear. After inputting my password, it takes approximately another 2-3 minutes to finish booting the desktop.  I note that, in an attempt to follow other tech support advice to allow the notebook to shutdown properly (to solve problem 1 above), I have previously turned off the fast boot option.  However, it...

I have a HP Pavilion 13 X2 Model F0A05AVI have two batteries in the unit, one in the tablet section and one in the keyboard/dock section. Recently, I have noticed the batteries do not drain equally (not sure if they should) but when the total battery level hits 50%, the keyboard stops working along with anything else attached to the dock like the touch pad for example. The tablet portion works fine. When I check the battery level it shows the dock/keyboard (battery #1) at 0% or 1% and the tablet battery (Battery #2) at 95-100% or so.  Is there anyway to get the batteries to discharge together and or get the dock/keyboard to take power from the battery in the tablet?

Hello everyone! Not sure if this is an issue but it's surely annoying to know, that battery N1 drains at 5% and the other stays at 100%. Is it possible for a mixed discharge between both batteries ?After all the LIFE of the first battery (while using battery only power) is shortened a lot! Is there any option in LENOVO VANTIGE that I am no aware of ?I looked everywhere and i can't find anything.. Bios latest update 1.30 Thank you very much!

A:T470s BATTERY 1 drains to 5%, BATTERY 2 stays at 100% (BATTERY PRIORITY)

Sorry  but see below post.  Basically you cant set discharge order.  The laptop checks battery wear and bases discharge order on that.  Many people including myself have asked for a BIOS switch or at least an option on discharge order but nothing has happened so far and I dont think its going to happen either.  I do not speak for Lenovo..

Hello. I have a 3yr old Toshiba Satellite laptop that I use every day, on avg. 8 hrs per day for school. The battery used to last about 2.5 hours without needing charging. In the past couple weeks, it only seems to last about an hour before needing to be charged.

Even more troublesome is its action when the charge is gone. I have set the power settings to pop up a notification message at 22% battery level and take no action, then at 10% battery level, pop up another message THEN go in to hibernate. However, last week it would give me only about 20 seconds' notice of a critical battery level, then it would hibernate. It wouldn't give me any notice before the critical level.

Now, it has taken to just hibernating, with no warning notice whatsoever. I could keep it plugged in all the time, but my concern is there's something more at issue that will get worse over time. I don't need any crashes at finals time.

Any suggestions? Could the battery need replacing? Thanks.
 

A:Battery drains in 1hr; No low battery warning before hibernate

Li Ions really start to lose capacity at 2 years. By 3 years, they can easily be at 50% of their original capacity.

I'd go for a new battery.

I have just bought this lkaptop and the hardware is nice, but I do not want to run Windows. Simple, I thought, as it's a PC, I'll just install Ubuntu. Well, the boot from USB is UEFI and that is a bit of a pain to set up, and I can't get it to work. The Ubuntu 14 install disk I burnt is an EFI boot CD and it simply fails to boot. Using the F9 option I get aBoot device failed message in white text on a blue screen. When I try to boot through the boot menus I get a missing file at \ubuntu\winboot\. I have just created a Windows recovery disk and that seems to boot fine. It looks like the BIOS/UEFI is set up to only allow Windows to boot. I've bought a USB DVD drive and failed to boot from that, also two memory sticks and a HDD. So, questions, before I put the laptop in the bin: 1. Has anyone else got Linux onto this device and if so what image and procedure did you use to get the install to work? 2 Is there a way to get legacy mode booting set up in the BIOS (The BIOS mentions legacy support in the screens but its not there).  Andrew

It seems that the hp x2 has a 32 bit uefi. So you'll need a 32bit uefi boot loader. Most distros I've seen just ship the 64 bit bootloader. There's a guy at debian who is trying to support this kind of thing - He's working on a netinst image for deb8. The current image he's published so far boots, but I can't get networking to work. Here's his blog (other good stuff there):http://blog.einval.com/debian/CDs Here's the deb image:http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/efi-development/jessie-upload3.Hth /markus

Hello @Yool, Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience!  I have read your post on how your notebook computer is not able to power on, even though it is plugged into the AC adapter, and I would be happy to assist you in this matter! If your computer is powering on, but there is no lights illuminating on the device, I recommend following this document on Computer Starts but Screen Remains Blank (Windows 8). Should the machine not respond at all when the button is pressed, I alternatively suggest this document: Computer does not start (Windows 8). This should help restore the display to your notebook computer. If the issue persists, please call our technical support at 800-474-6836.

My pavilion is not respoinding properly. 1 month ago, the laptop/tablet locked after a hardware issue and needed a bitlocker key to open it. After some time finding it and a few problems from microsoft, the laptop was in working order as of yesterday. However, the audio was missing (I assume that's why the laptop locked itself?? I'm not a large techy person!). As I could not restore the audio, I decided to do a reset with files still intact. This got to 44% and then came up with a response along the lines of; "Cannot reset due to an issue. Please try again later." This led me back to two options; revert back and load windows 10 or to retry. I retried a few more times with the same error message and two options. I'd decided after that not working, I'd try and revert back and reload windows 10. After this, the only thing my laptop now does is load the HP symbol, move to a black screen and repeat. I've tried hard resets and attempting to diagnose the problem with F2, yet this did not help at all as all 'passed' bar the audio which could not be detected. Any help would be great! Thanks.

I purchased my laptop on 11/6/15 from Best Buy. When it is plugged in, it works fine but the battery was not charging. Unfortunately for me, it is now 1 1/2 months out of warranty. I brought it into Best Buy to have the battery replaced and it was sent to their servicing center. I just received a call from them telling me that my issue is Not my battery but with something on the motherboard that controls how the battery charges and the entire board needs to be replaced and it is going to cost me just as much to replace it as I paid for my laptop. This is absolutely obsurd!! The laptop is only 13 months old and has never been mishandled. When making the decision to buy a new laptop, I chose HP because I had such good luck with my old one that was 10 years old. Has HP quality gone downhill? And on top of it all, when I went to submit a question about this to HP support, it comes up with my laptop being out of warranty since August 2016 which less than a 1 year warranty. Now Im left with the decision to repair my 13 month old laptop and still have no protection if something else breaks or buy a new one with protection for the same price.

Since a couple of weeks the second monitor cannot be recognized any more. I even tried to connect my TV set but nothing happened. There is no problem with the cable. Also all drivers seem to be up to date. Any ideas what could I do ? Thanks in advance!

hi,
my dell inspiron i3 battery still drains when I shut down the machine using the Power "shut down" option in windows 10.
after i'm done using the laptop and turn it off using the shut down option. it either I see a red light indicating low battery or the machine won't turn On at all because it has run out of battery and I need to connect the charger

A:battery still drains after shutting down the laptop

Disable fast boot:

Once that's done, Windows 10 will shut down rather than hibernate. 
If that doesn't solve the issue, it may be time for a new battery.

Hello!  I just  purchased my LENOVO ideapad 310, a month ago. During my observation on its battery since I got it, its discharging time takes atmost 1 hour and 45 mins while its charging time takes atmost 4 hours. Given the fact that I am not using any application or software, it's not even connected to internet, just leaving it open, it drains so easy. I know its battery is below average but given the fact that its charging time consumes more compare to discharging, i am beginning to wonder if its still normal.  Your answer will be deeply appreciated thank you!

Hi, I've been having some trouble with my HP Spectre x360 battery draining while powered off (completely off, not just sleep mode or hibernate), but I couldn't find much online about it. It's been happening for a while, but I only recently paid attention enough to realize that almost 10% of the battery drains in about 12 hours while off. I've tried running the battery component test on the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI, and that passed, saying the battery doesn't need to be calibrated. I know batteries usually drain while the pc/phone is powered off, but from what I've found it shouldn't be this much. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond.

I got a new Y700 Ideapad a month back and the batterry has been draining to 6% every time it reaches below 50% in a second. Started happening when I turned on the Lenovo Power Manager settings to conservative mode. FYI: I donot keep it plugged in after it reaches full charge.Any help is appreciated. Much Thanks, Himadri
