Hp laptop will not boot freezes on battery power

Hi, I have installed Zorin 15.3 on my HP 7-ca1124ng laptop, but it will not boot on battery power. It starts the boot process then the screen goes blank. Can any one please help.

After you get it booted while plugged-in, does the battery alone sustain operation after that (unplugged)?

Could you please edit your grub by

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Find this line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash”

Change it to:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash dis_ucode_ldr”
Hit ctrl+x to exit, hit ‘y’ to say yes, then hit enter to save as current title.

Then

sudo update-grub

Hi carmar,
Yes once i have booted when plugged-in and then unplugged its OK.

That is not the solution I would have expected. Glad you were able to get it figured out and shared your results. :slight_smile:
