Hello! My ProBook 4540s was working fine until few half hour ago, when I unplugged it to move it and then attempted to plug it back in, and it stopped charging.  When plugging in the power cord the light above the power jack (and no other lights) flashes white 9 times.   This is the exact same problem as posted here http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/ProBook-4540s-not-charging/m-p/4...but there is no solution. Please help

Hello! My ProBook 4540s was working fine until a half hour ago, when I unplugged it to move it and then attempted to plug it back in, and it stopped charging.  When plugging in the power cord (that came with the ProBook when I bought it around 18 months ago), the light above the power jack (and no other lights) flashes white 9 times. I've tried following this fix I found on Google: 1. Turn off the notebook2. remove the battery3. remove the charging adapter4. press + hold the power button for 40 seconds5. insert the charging adaptor only6. press the power button and it supposedly continues but I get stuck at this point, because even plugged in, my ProBook won't start up without the battery in also. Is this a know problem/is there a fix for this?

Attempted to up-date to Windows 10. Couldn't do it. Microsoft (MS) Tech tried to do it and couldn't do it. It seems there are some security tools that must be removed as they are incompatable with Windows 10. MS tried to remove and couldn't do it. He said they were on the mother board and when he tried to remove them they just kept coming back so once again he couldn't do it. He said contact HP and they could do it. Unable to find anybody at HP that can do it. As you can see nobody can do it so I guess it just cannot be done. That is unless some fine person out there has discovered a way to do it. If thats the case please tell me ho wo do it.

I have a new ProBook 4540s notebook that I shut down over the weekend. I am not sure if I put it into hibernate, sleep, or what as I am still getting use to it. When I tried to turn it on (not plugged in) I got nothing. So I plugged in the power cord and hit the power button again. All it did was the LED above the cord plug blinked about 8 times and nothing else. I let it "charge" overnight and tried again in the morning. Nothing but a blinking LED. I Googled the problem and it said to take the battery out, unplug, and hold the power button down for 20 seconds. I plugged it back in but left the battery out, and still the same thing - flashing LED. HELP! Thanks.

HiI tried to update to W10 and failed with OXC 1900200 which suggests a compatibility issue. It is unclear on the HP website if this model supports W10 -  HP has not tested your PC model for upgrade to Windows 10.If your Windows 7 or 8 PC was manufactured before August 2013 or is running Windows XP or Windows Vista, HP cannot confirm it can be upgraded to Windows 10.  Can anybody offer an advice if the 4540S supports the W10 upgrade and if so any advice on what may be causing the error. ThanksJohn

the touchpad of my 4540s i5 freezes after some time of working.this happens from time to time.i unstalled Synaptics TouchPad Driver and restalled but probles is the same.OS windows 8(64bit)

A:the touchpad of probook 4540s i5 freezes after sometime

Hello zamsam,

 

I understand that your touchpad will freeze.

 

Do a hard reset.
Turn the computer off.
Remove the power cable and the battery.
Hold down the power button for 15 sec while booth power sources are removed.

This should reset the hardware in the computer.

 

As you power it back on tap the F2 key. This will load hardware diagnostics.
Run the startup test.

This will test all the hardware in the system and detect any problems.

 

If the entire test passes, turn off the computer.
As you turn it back on tap the F10 key. This will load BIOS setup utility.
Press F9 to load defaults.
Press F10 to save and exit.

When the computer boots back up, check to see if everything is working.

My laptop is running Windows 10 64-bit.

For the past few weeks my laptop has been turning off unexpectedly.

I've tried with battery only. With battery and power cable and with battery removed and only power cable.

I am using the machine normally and then screen just goes black and power offs - no restart, no hibernation, no shut down. Just instantaneously off.

It's not overheating. Could it be a fan issue?

I don't know - but it's getting quite irritating as I often have many apps open and many files open on each app and takes me 30 mins to get back to where I left off.

Dear Customer,Welcome and Thank you for posting your query on HP Support Forum It looks like you are not able to Power ON the Notebook and wanted to fix the issuePlease perform below shown steps to find out if this is a software or hardware issue:1. Remove all Peripherals and Cables, Disconnect them and try to Power ON the Unit 2. Check for LED Light Status and ensure Power Button spring action is normal 3. Swap with a known good Power Cord and Power Adapter 4. Incase no Adapter is available, Check if the Power Adapter is slightly warmNote: This will give us a hint that the Power Adapter might be fine 5. Do you know if the Notebook was in Battery or Power Adapter Mode when you used it for the last timeNote: Ensure there is no liquid spillage or Power Outage 6. Check if the AC Adapter Port is loose/broken Note: If the Notebook doesn't Power ON even with a known good Power Adapter this confirms the Hardware fault with System Board or the DC Power Circuit  Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again **Click the 'Thumbs Up Button' to say Thanks** Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,K N R KAlthough I am an HP employee, I am speaking for myself and not for HP

Hey all, Nice forum and really have found a lot of useful info here but still need help. My 650 G1 started showing Plugged in / Not Charging.  I found the following link on HP but when I try to run the SP / BIOS update, it tells me that this update (SP67772) is stepping back from what I currently have on this laptop.  Do I do this anyway or is there some other update that needs to be done and I keep my current version? http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c05058319 It was purchased earlier this year and is still under warranty but when I try to do an on-line chat, it tells me that the serial # is not valid but I know it is. Anyway, any help that you all could send my way would be appreciated. Thanks.Frank

I was recently given a Probook 4310S, it was working fine but it was running Windows XP.So yestaday I installed windows 10.During the Installation Proccess the Laptop  was working fine, it was charging and the battery was holding charge. After I finished installing drivers and everything, I plugged it in because it had low battery, 1 hour later I came back to the laptop and the computer hadn't charged and is saying "13%, Plugged in Not Charging". I have tried other chargers and it is still not charging or charging above 13%. When I plug it in, sometimes the charging LED will come on for a couple of minutes, then it will eventually turn off, another time when I unplugged it, it starts flashing.  Now it thinks it is happy and is charging again, but it has also done this when i was trouble shooting, it will probably stop charging again at 13% Does anyone have any ideas?

I have a customer that ive done a fresh install of windows 10 on a new hard drive for.  On windows 7, there is no issue with battery charging (new battery, new charger)  but when I swap the drive and boot windows 10, the battery reports as plugged in not charging.  Usually around 96%.   If the charger is unplugged, let the battery die down to 5% or so, then plug charger back in, it charges fine, goes to 100%, then after awhile it says the same thing, plugged in not charging.  (which i see as normal, but pretty sure the hp power mgmt software would report it as still plugged in and charging, try explaining to a customer when they see something as what they think is a problem..)There is no hp peak power manager for windows 10, only windows 7 and 8.1.  The windows 7 or 8.1 version will not install on windows 10.  Tried in compatibility mode for every version of windows known to man.  Anyone know if there is an HP version of power management software tuned for windows 10 floating around somewhere, maybe for a different laptop?  Thank you.

Hello, I have a HP 4530s with this problem: If I remove and insert the battery while Windows is running, the battery charges for a little while and then stops charging ("Plugged in, not charging). An orange light is blinking near the power connector. If I remove and insert the battery again, it charges for a while and then stops again. If I turn off Windows and disconnect AC power, if the orange light was blonking, it continues blonking (didn't wait to see how long). If I do this enough times, the battery charges to full. When I disconnect the AC power the laptop works normally on the battery (battery capacity is OK). What I have tried:1. removing the battery, disconnecting AC, holding power button for 40s, reconnecting AC, starting Windows, shutting down Windows, inserting the battery.2. Updating the BIOS to the latest version (F60) - this actually helped because previously the battery was not detected at all if removed and inserted until I did #1.

Through reading fourms, some people had similar issue and solved it by disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard. I have tried this and still no luck. I have changed out the following; Memory, Harddrive, Charger, Battery.  Still no luck. If you know anything that I could try or anything that would help, please let me know. Many thanks

Hi...

I am having a problem with my laptop computer. I figured out that my laptop, when being charged or using the Power Outlet, runs at 100% CPU at times, and slows me down when running and working on some open applications. At first I thought I had tons of spyware or even a virus, and even posted a Hijackthis file here. Nothing was found.
I figured out that my cpu runs at 100% when using the power outlet, or when my computer is chargnig. When I unplug the powercord and use the battery life, everything runs GREAT!!!!! my cpu drops to a normal 4-8% usage with multiple applications running. WEIRD huh? Can anyone relate to this ?? Is this and indication that my battery is going bad???? Can someone help me with this or suggest what is going on? I am running windows XP home edition, and have a compac presario 1500 series.

i have been using this laptop for 2 years i get it from my friend .

from start it always charges battery upto 56 percent.

and i thought that there is problem in the battery cell and in few months battery backup becomes very short.

Yesterday i bought a new battery for my laptop but it is giving me the same problem which i had with my previous battery.

So this is not battery problem.



Things i have tried



1)Removing battery and uninstalling windows ac adaptor from Device manager.

2)Removing both battery and power Adaptor and pushing the power button for 20 sec if there is any residuel current.



Nothing has worked for me so far.

I would be thankful for your guidance.

Thank you

Hi! is there any solution to delete the forgotten bios password for my 4540s? thanks Klaus

A:4540s Bios password

Hi, Unfortunately,  business machines such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models - they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial No. and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. If you Contact HP Business support they should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Regards, DP-K

Hello all,

I am stumped on this problem. I have a HP Probook 4540s (Win 7 x64) that has a nic that is not functioning. It acts as if the network cable is disconnected. I've taken the below troubleshooting steps.

- Checked switch port and cable with another device (worked fine).

-Uninstalled and reinstalled the driver directly from HP and then Realtek. The controller is a Realtek PCIe GBe Family Controller. It shows up in Device Manager each time.

- Checked bios to make sure then the device is enabled and disabled LAN/WAN switching.

- Nuked Windows and reinstalled from disk to get a fresh install. I even tried Win 7 x86.


- Tried safe mode (same result).

Any ideas?

I don't have a solution for you, but I'll be watching to see if others do. I support a few people that have this same laptop. Can you tell me how long the cable is that you have been plugging into this laptop. It is possible to generate enough static electricity on a LAN cable to blow the NIC's circuits.

I've had my HP Envy laptop for about 3 months, and yesterday I noticed that when it was plugged in it wasn't charging (the battery icon says "plugged in, not charging"). I turned it off overnight, plugged in, and this morning the battery was fully charged. It only seems to not charge when it is turned on. I have tried removing the battery, turning on, deleting the ACPI-compliant control method battery, turning off, and turning back on again (as advised in other forum responses), but with no joy. At first I thought it could either be a battery issue, but the fact it fully charged overnight whilst off would lead me to believe it's not, and is probably a software / settings issue.

For some reason my laptop once stopped charging, I tried a few different outlets at a library and non of them made the laptop start charging again (charging = organge light glowing). I got home, and my outlets there didn't work either. THen after a while I tried an outlet again, and it worked. Then this problem occured one more time (then I fixed it somehow). And the last time it occured  I haven't been able to fix it. Trust me I've tried almost everything, I tried turnign it off taking the battery out and holding the powere button then trying to charge it, I tried waiting for hours, but  have not tried a new charger.  So here is the problem I see: I plug in the charger, and the charging LED does not glow, instead it randomly (it seems random) blinks.  I once left my laptop to do that for hours, and it still didn't even charge. Also I can't turn on my laptop without the battery (not sure if thats even possible, as I have not heard it is possible).  I'm going to send it back to Costco soon, but before I do, please help me figure out how to fix it, thanks

I'm coming through with this issue because I saw so many people (including dell tech support) struggling with this issue before.
The issue is as follows: you connect your laptop to the charger, the charging light goes on, windows says "charging", even the BIOS says charging, and yet, the battery's voltage just keeps going down no matter what you do about it..
Dell tech support usually try to guide you to reset the BIOS battery by removing the main battery and press the power button. but it's not the case here.
The solution I found was a very strange one, changing the RAM slot seemed to solve the issue completely.
Just taking the RAM card from one slot to the other. on one slot it's stopping your laptop from charging, on the other everything is good.
I honestly don't know why that is (and I'm a PC technician myself),  considering the laptop ships with two perfectly good RAM slots, but I thought the solution needs to be out there.
I'm hoping I managed to help some of you, (Even with my less then perfect English) Sapir.

Hi,
I have a dell xps 12, bought in 2012. Recently the battery stopped charging. The battery shows 0%, so I have to be plugged in to turn the laptop on. When it is on, the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, charging" but after a day it is still 0%.
Since then I bought a new battery. Just fitted it, but now the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, not charging". Furthermore, when I Fn+F3 to show the battery meter, it says "battery charging diabled". There is no option here to turn battery charging on. Nor is there an option to enable battery charging in BIOS. 
BIOS does show battery performing normally, so does the battery meter (Fn+F3). BIOS also shows AC adapter as 45W, which is the original adapter.

Well after spending hours with windows tech support they were able to verify that the validity driver that HP hs will not work with windows Search of the forums found a link to Lenovo for an updated driver for the validity sensor device..it is packaged as a Synaptics driver http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds103635 BTW- Synaptics now owns Validity Sensor Uninstall all HP drivers one by one in Device Manager The FP reader will ultimately show as an unklnown device Install Lenovo Windows 10 driver pack...be-boot computer and the the devive will re-show with the updated driver Well what d you know, now Windows Hello shows up in the accounts folder and you can use your finger print reader Shame we have to go to another source instead of HP updating their driver list

Update (Sep 23rd) Figured out graphic will only switch when the AC is plugged out and the notebooks running on battery. While the battery is in and the ac is plugged in it won't switch. (AC in + Battery out neither.) How come the it manges to switch only on battery + after closing the game -> a 100% Bluescreen comes.(I'm sure it tries to switch back to the HD 7650 .. and somehow it does not manage.)_________________________  Hi there, hope you guys can figure something out .. so far i tried everything to my knowledge.First the Specs:HP ProBook 4540s (C5E12ES), 15.6", Core i5-3210M 2x 2.50GHz, 6GB, 750GB, AMD Radeon HD 7650M 2GB(integrated HD 4000) (pre-installed OS > SUSE 11)Current OS: Win 7 Professional 64bitProblem:Installed almost all drivers that were offered here:http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId...(ofc. for w7 64bit; and they claimed to be working)But  it never switched to the Radeon HD 7650M no matter what i assigned in the AMD Catalyst (High Performance) + Energy Mode Max Power (also checked the option all were set for max power). So basically the problem is the discrete Radeon HD 7650M graphics card is never available. I tried disabling in the BIOS the "Switchable Graphics Mode" > causes only that the HD 7650M isn't even visible in the Hardware-Manager + not available + Catalyst shows that it isn't working properly. (+ there is no Option that worked ... Read more

A:Update: HP 4540s Graphics problem with AMD Radeon HD 7650M

Switching problem SOLVED! Since it switched the graphics on battery mode i new that probably the energy-options could interfere - checked all and found one that blocked switching the graphics: > Click the Battery > Energy Options (for the current scheme) > enhanced energy options > check ALL entries there are 3 that can conflict with the switching: > Set the dynamic switchable graphics for battery and ac to automatic> Set the intel gpu power plan for ac to max performance (or both - if you want)> Set the ATI Powerplay-Options to max/optimal performance! Also Check that you have set the application/game to HIGH Performance in yourCatalyst Control Center (+ do not disable the Power Play Option in Catalyst Control Center) (+ don't forget after switching from balanced to high-power or energy-saving these entries must be set as well) ^ Graphic will switch!! What remains ... the computer still will bluescreen afterwards (maybe this also can be resolved by playing around with the Energy Options. !Also keep in mind that applications/games still will show that you can select the HD 4000 only but it does switch to the discrete gpu (7650M HD). Higher FPS + better graphics will also prove that. Screens to make it easier to understand:

Hi,last time I tried to start up, my NB 4540s results a start screen with:Windows Boot Manager problem 0xc000000e It says to use the recovery disk, and this is what I did, but each time I try to restart the screen is the same.I tried with ESC, F8, F11, and so on, but nothing solved.I tried to keep pressed ON button withouth battery to descharge laptop, but all is the same. I have seen the recovery disk with windows 8, but this NB has windows 7. Maybe this could be a problem when recovering ? Anyway the disk runs, but nothing different each start, the same windows boot manager windows appears.I can reinstall the system from scratch withouth problems, but how can install from cd ? Thanks

A:4540s Notebook windows boot manager problem

It is likely that there is a problem with either the hard drive or the memory. If either is true it is not going to be possible to restore an operating system unless the bad component is replaced.  Can you get into the BIOS (F10) or diagnostics (F2) at bootup? You should run the hardware testing programs which are available at either place. Let us know what you find or if you have trouble getting there.

I have Toshiba satellite model C875?7304. The battery indicator on the desktop says that it's charging but the percentage is depleting. This is on a brand-new battery that came with 67% full and a new adapter. When the laptop is off the LED indicator in the front is lit like the battery is charging. However it is not. After leaving it plugged in for a few hours the percentage was the same as when I turned it off. Also the adapter wasn't warm at all. I've tried all Toshibas recommendations removing all power from the laptop and holding the power button down for 30 seconds to a minute. Also removing the battery for the bios and reinserting it. Still that hasn't worked. I removed the laptop battery and the laptop will not power on using AC power only. It's almost like the laptop is only using battery power and the adapter is not charging the battery or keeping the laptop on. Laptops only about a year old. Any suggestions anyone?
 

A:Toshiba satellite charging but not charging

As the laptop's only a year old the original battery should be fine and not need replacing. Also if it won't run from the AC power only something is wrong. Look for your receipt and if it's still under guarantee take the laptop back.

I found out yesterday morning that for some reason, the battery on my laptop isn't charging. I'm staying at my mother's house for the weekend and since then the problem has occured. At home, it always charged properly and never gave me any problems.  Could I need a new battery? I've tried going to Device Manager and uninstalling and re-installing drivers and the whole 9 yards, yet the problem still persists. Thank you in advance

Need Help!

The problem started from June 2, 2015 about 4 AM (UTC +8:00 Philippine, Manila)

I open my Notebook that morning to check on my e-mails and bills at gmail but it's not powering up. At first I thought that the battery was slightly drained because I saw my sister still using it at midnight. I asked her if she did not plugged in the charger when it is nearly drained but she said she plugged it and it is still full when she shut it down.

It is Li-ion Battery

I tried plugging in the charger to check whether it still has remaining battery. It powered up.
On the taskbar/notifications/running apps it says 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging).
So to check out the problem, I left it turned off charging for about two hours.

Then after two hours it still says 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging)
What the hell is this?! I asked my self.
I installed an app to check the status of the battery (Battery Bar)
Battery Bar says something like this:
Capacity: 2K of 8K mWh (not sure about this)
Charging: 0 mW
Running on AC
7.9% Available
Something like that.

Summary Notes:
1. Does not power up without Charger
2. It detects the Battery saying 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging)
3. Though Plugged In, Charging it does not charge at all because of 0 mW charge rate
4. It turns off when the Charger is plugged out.
5. It still run even without the Battery (when the Charger was plugged in of course, then a red x mark shows in the notification taskbar battery icon)

Thus:
1. The problem is som... Read more

Client's relatively new Yoga 500 is exhibiting a weird problem in Windows 10 anniversary edition. The battery is currently at 47% but keeps flickering between charging and not charging. The icon changes every second, possibly faster. Tried swapping power supplies so it's not that. When first reported, the battery was at 40% but then got to 47% during a reboot. The battery on the Yoga 500 is internal so not possible to try swapping batteries. Any ideas or suggestions?
