Solved! HP Probook 430 G2

Jan 21, 2019
Firstly, my main charger (known to have issues in the past then never had problems till now) would not begin to "work", I'd have to fiddle with the charger in the laptop for up to 30 minutes just to find a spot that works, and usually when It failed I noticed a unsusual decrease in battery (very fast) and my laptop would constantly turn off due to no charge (even reaching 1%)

Secondly, I couldn't even access it, I would plug in my charger and the light to turn on the laptop aswell as the charging lighter would rapidly brink blue, even when I removed the charger! Sometimes no light would come out at all

Moreover, I have acquired a physically damaged charger, and after a few days from the second stage and repeated cycles and battery removals it turned on as normal, then later said (plugged in, not charging as the battery decreased and died),

Now, I even tested the charger without the battery and it still wouldn't rapidly blink. Sometimes when the battery is in , it blinks, sometimes it doesn't

Solutions/Answers attempted/Other info
- Removing and physically reinstalling the keyboard
- Removing and physically reinstalling the motherboard
- Reset cycle;
1. Unplug your charger cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds.
4. Now plug back in the power/charger cord.
5. Now put the battery back in.
-Not under warranty
- The old battery died after roughly 4 years of use, the new battery was purchased from *laptopPLUS* and has been in use for a year
- When my laptop would turn on and off, I may have gotten a BIOS error (cant remember), nevertheless it did not start up as normal
- No irregular stuff when I accessed the laptop


Could be a few things, bad charger, loose charging port on system or a motherboard issue, bad battery. None of the things you tried would really help with this, need to try a new charger and having your system actually looked at for physical issues.
