The port works and it detects something in, but doesn't charge through it, it's a fairly old laptop (dell precision 5510) don't know if it's a driver issue or not?

What could be wrong?

Did it charge this way before? Not all USB-C ports will accept a charge. What does the stock charger connect to?
I didn’t try it to be honest, stock charger is like these beefy ones. It does fine with it, but im seeking more convenience with the usb c.

don't see on the manual or spec that said the usbc can be use as a charging port.
some people say it does charge (on dell's forums) after updating bios. I'm really afraid of updating BIOS, can't risk bricking my system, BIOS version is the 1st version on it and dell's website says it's critical to update
