The bent pin was the power problem... THANK YOU! What a spectacularly fragile piece of shit this connector is... its like they deliberately added plastic to make the cord stiffer so there would be more stress on the whole assembly. I'm not going to begin to speculate on why a data pin is needed, or why the default reaction to no data isn't "Power the fucking laptop" Unfuckingbelivable.

I spent 2 hours going back and forth with support. Flashed the bios. Upgradeded all drivers.... at which point they wanted me to reinstall windows before I finally hung up on them. Unfuckingbelivable.

HP really should take on the Packard Bell name now... they've earned it.
