    Laptop woes (win 10)

    Not sure if there is an answer to this but one of you guys might be able to help
    Short story daughter no2 - windows 7 laptop- could I update it win 10?
    Also replace cmos battery?
    Performed the Ďfreeí upgrade via the Microsoft site and replaced the cmos battery
    All updates performed- niw the darn thing is not charging- 0% not charging
    It will briefly start to charge (according to the little meter) on boot up then stop
    Iíve googled it and seems a common problem Microsoft gave ignored
    Any help would be really appreciated as I could find myself in the dog house
    Wondering if I should try to back it to 7- although this might not cure the problem
    Thanks

    It would help to know the model of the laptop as there may be a BIOS configuration change you can make. I bought an aftermarket battery (not CMOS) for an old Dell of mine and I solved it with a change in the BIOS (but I can't remember what the change was).

    I would go to the laptop brand website, search for its drivers and download and install the whole lot again incase they were lost or messed up somehow.

    Sorry I could possibly point you at BIOS options if it were a Dell or Lenovo. Hopefully somebody else can chime in. The point about downloading all of the latest drivers is also a good idea - both Dell and Lenovo have a tool that manages all of this and I'd assume that HP offers something similar.

    See if you can run this on the machine

    https://support.hp.com/gb-en/drivers/laptops

    To identify any missing HP software components

    It might be that if it's an old one, that HP dont support win10 drivers for it

    Could not detect my system but with a manual input it only goes as far as windows 7- this could be my problem
