Hello and peace on you..
I have a DELL Inspiron N5110 from early 2011
I was using the laptop correctly..The laptop was plugged in and the battery was charging..Then i removed the charger let the laptop on battery until suddenly the laptop shuts down without even telling me that the battery is low or even leaving some "emergency" charge on it (usually 7% or 5% i don't know)..I plugged it in to charge it again and open my leptop and i found out that the battery is not taking charge anymore!
I tried to see if the propblem is with the connector and tried to remove and put in again the charger and it ddid not work
i tried also to remove the battery and put it in again, it did not help
Now it is stuck on 2% of charge from 5 days and it's plugged in!
The laptop says that the battery is charging, but actually it is not charging and the charge level is the same from days
I looked up some solutions online like uninstalling ACPI microsof from Device manager and reboot the laptop..It did not work
"Jauge de batterie" which is an integrated software related to DELL, says that the battery health is good and that my battery is working properly
The laptop works fine with only the charger plugged in and battery out
PS: the laptop heats usually but i think it did not affect the battery at all since it was working fine and the charge took me about at minimum 30 min on high performance to be emptyed before this happens.
Please, i'm seeking for help
I hope you can ... Read more

A:Battery says: Charging, but it is not actually charging while plugged in and is stuck in 2% for 5 days !

First thing to check is wherther the sysetm recognizes the AC adapter - F2 at powerup to check that.
If it doesn't, try a new Dell OEM AC adapter - if that doesn't fix the issue, replace the DC jack board, and if that doesn't solve it, the mainboard.  Note:  you MUST use a Dell adapter - NOT a third party unit.
If the system DOES recognize the AC adapter, but won't charge the battery, chances are the battery is bad and will need to be replaced.
You cannot solve the issue without checking and, if necessary, replacing these parts.

i have been using this laptop for 2 years i get it from my friend .

from start it always charges battery upto 56 percent.

and i thought that there is problem in the battery cell and in few months battery backup becomes very short.

Yesterday i bought a new battery for my laptop but it is giving me the same problem which i had with my previous battery.

So this is not battery problem.



Things i have tried



1)Removing battery and uninstalling windows ac adaptor from Device manager.

2)Removing both battery and power Adaptor and pushing the power button for 20 sec if there is any residuel current.



Nothing has worked for me so far.

I would be thankful for your guidance.

Thank you

Hi Guys, I have had to change my battery, got a brand new DELL battery but I can't get it to charge...I'm running Windows 10 PRO. I have tried the fixes listed above but unfortunately NONE has solved my problem. Any suggestions?

A:XPS 12 9Q23 Power Charging Disabled / Plugged in, NOT CHARGING

Hi DAEMONROD.
Where have you purchased the battery from? Does the old battery charge fine when plugged in?
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible? 
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Test another power adapter and check. If the adapter fits in loose, then the dc port needs to be replaced. You would need this part.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Hi ! Over the past two weeks I've spent my time troubleshooting why my recently (used) bought X240 is not charging the internal battery. Short timeline: 1. Bought used X240 in good condition but with dead internal and external battery - working well when using power supply.2. Came home and tested that thing -> both batteries show "0% - not charging" (with Win10Pro installed) *suprise, surprise*3. Ordered both new internal and external battery.4. External battery came 1.5 weeks ago. Installed it and worked like a charm (Battery 2 (external): X%, charging).5. Internal battery came the day before yesterday. Installed it and did not work -> "Battery 1: 53% - plugged in, charging - Battery 2: 6% - plugged in, not charging)6. Waited the recommended 6-12 hours like it was written in the "manual" to get it fully charged.7. Next morning -> Batterystatus unchanged (see point 5) ... It's stuck at 53%. Though the status says it's charging, it doesn't.8. Simply tried out what's going to happen when I pull the cable of the power supply -> Notebook instant off *hmmm*9. As the external battery was obviously blocked from charging by the internal (as it was not charged), I've taken out the internal battery again and et voila, external battery is charging again.I've tried to remove both batteries and perform the "Magic Trick" (press the main power switch for 30 secs) and I've also pushed the "reset" switch on the backside near the battery. Sadly without any result ;-(... Read more

Check battery heath (F2): "battery must replace". My laptop is OK except battery.
What happened with my new laptop for using 3 weeks?

Hi,
I have a dell xps 12, bought in 2012. Recently the battery stopped charging. The battery shows 0%, so I have to be plugged in to turn the laptop on. When it is on, the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, charging" but after a day it is still 0%.
Since then I bought a new battery. Just fitted it, but now the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, not charging". Furthermore, when I Fn+F3 to show the battery meter, it says "battery charging diabled". There is no option here to turn battery charging on. Nor is there an option to enable battery charging in BIOS. 
BIOS does show battery performing normally, so does the battery meter (Fn+F3). BIOS also shows AC adapter as 45W, which is the original adapter.
Any help is appreciated!

I am not sure if the battery is the problem, but it seems to be. When plugged in, the battery will not charge UNLESS the computer is shut down. Then it seems to charge. When turned back on, it might charge for a minute or two but then it's back to the message "plugged in, not charging." The battery life stays consistant when plugged in, it just won't charge any higher. At the moment it is stuck at 87% after dying on me this morning. I was working perfectly last night.  I have taken the battery out and turned the computer on with only the AC plugged in and it does work. My theory is it's the battery but I'm not sure.  The last thing I did was run a battery test and an AC adapter test through the UEFI menu. Both passed. Can someone please help?

I have done what ever solution i can have managed to find but neither have worked but the battery works  just fine when inserting into the other duplicate laptop and charges fine. I have tried to instal or upgrade BIOS settings etc. Nothing has worked for me! Please can someone point me in the correct direction!!!!!! Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Need Help!

The problem started from June 2, 2015 about 4 AM (UTC +8:00 Philippine, Manila)

I open my Notebook that morning to check on my e-mails and bills at gmail but it's not powering up. At first I thought that the battery was slightly drained because I saw my sister still using it at midnight. I asked her if she did not plugged in the charger when it is nearly drained but she said she plugged it and it is still full when she shut it down.

It is Li-ion Battery

I tried plugging in the charger to check whether it still has remaining battery. It powered up.
On the taskbar/notifications/running apps it says 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging).
So to check out the problem, I left it turned off charging for about two hours.

Then after two hours it still says 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging)
What the hell is this?! I asked my self.
I installed an app to check the status of the battery (Battery Bar)
Battery Bar says something like this:
Capacity: 2K of 8K mWh (not sure about this)
Charging: 0 mW
Running on AC
7.9% Available
Something like that.

Summary Notes:
1. Does not power up without Charger
2. It detects the Battery saying 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging)
3. Though Plugged In, Charging it does not charge at all because of 0 mW charge rate
4. It turns off when the Charger is plugged out.
5. It still run even without the Battery (when the Charger was plugged in of course, then a red x mark shows in the notification taskbar battery icon)

Hello,   I have a new (9 months old) HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab268ca.  I have used this computer very little as my last computer was still operating and I wanted to finish some projects off on it before moving to this new computer.  The computer was fine for the first few uses but now the battery is completely drained, I can only use it if it is plugged in to a power source.  When trying to charge the battery, which I can remove, it says: Plugged in, not charging.   This has become discouraging.  I don't know how to fix this problem.  I'm not sure why a computer that is less than a year old and hasn't been used is doing this.  Since my computer is still under warranty I would like to see this problem fixed.  If someone from HP can contact me and let me know how to fix this or who I have to bring my computer to in order to have my warranty cover this, that would be greatly appreciated.   This is the first time I've bought an HP product and I can honestly say it has been a frustrating process, especially after seeing that this has been a problem for the last few years, judging by other customer's comments.  I hope this can be fixed because I really do like everything this computer can offer, except that it's battery won't charge, rendering my laptop useless.  Thank you very much for your reply, Michael

I bought a dell inspiron for my (teenage) daughter about a year ago, a few months after the charger wasn't being recognized.It said it needed a 50 watt charger, but the one I had was 55 watts. We kept it plugged in even though it wasn't charging because she needed to use the laptop. Everything was slow though... it said system performance would slow down which ***. I've bought a bunch of new chargers. All 50+ watts.All have the same problem. After a while for the battery it said "no battery detected" even though there WAS a battery in there. I bought a new charger and a new battery yesterday. The battery I put in was at about 35% charge and was recognized. However, when I plugged in the charger, it said plugged in not charging. Again, we (she) kept it in because she does use this laptop quite frequently. Today I noticed that AGAIN, no battery was detected. I am annoyed and we are going to take the laptop in (hopefully) for repairs tomorrow. I don't know if I'm currently going to be able to afford it. What is the issue? 

A:Plugged in not charging

Only OEM Dell adapters will charge the battery.  If you've tried more than one OEM adapter, the problem is with the DC jack (next thing to replace;  if you need the part reference, we'll need the full model number - i.e., Inspiron 3552, etc.).
If the jack doesn't get the adapter recognized,  then the issue is likely with the mainboard.

I am more than a bit annoyed.

I got this HP pavilion "entertainment PC" last September so i could get back to school. I upgraded to Windows 7 In Late November and really started to used the computer in January. I began to notice two things. 1) Even though it was a so-called "Entertainment PC," The battery life when not connected is at 20 minutes at best when viewing media, and around 40 when not. 2) When the AC adapter is plugged in, the battery will not charge. Instead, I get a message stating "Plugged in, not charging"

I have tried turning the pc off , waiting and then turning it back on.
I have tried removing the battery, waiting, and then putting it back in
I have tried removing the battery drivers, and lettign the system restore them automatically, upon restarting.

The last solution worked for a few moments, the charge went u to 40, then 45 % then it suddenly stopped charging again.
Now nothing I do will get it to charge. I contacted HP Customer Service. Their solution is to send me a new battery, but only After i give them my Credit card number so they can hold it. I am under warranty they refuse to assist me without me paying them and I cannot afford to.

Is there anything I can to do fix this problem on my own? i don't like being bent over, and that was why I Stopped dealing with DELL, but it looks like i am getting the same crap from a different company. At least my Dell Desktop has lasted the last 9 years without catastrophi... Read more

A:Plugged in, Not Charging

Hi Kuru, To me its a duff battery and it has to go. Its only going to get worse and worse until it holds no charge at all. You said "but only After i give them my Credit card number so they can hold it."
Can you please clarify that they wanted you to pay for the replacement battery or the cost of sending it to you ?

Perhaps they might think you are not telling the truth so you can get a new battery and sell on. In taking CC details they can charge you for a new one if you don't send back the old one ?
Unless the battery is excluded from the guarentee, not sure about US consumer protection laws
But if they just want postage then you might like to reconsider. Please clarify.

Hey everyone,

I have had my Lenovo Z580 for little over a week and I have been greeted with the well known plugged in, not charging message. I have had this issue on previous laptops that I have owned. However, this problem is slightly different.

Let me begin by explaining how this problem began. I was on my laptop a few nights ago and the battery was being charged and I was quite tired so I decided to shut down the laptop and go to bed. The laptop was charged to around 95% and I thought I would continue to charge it the next day. The next day I put the charger in and soon realised it wasn't charging. I tried all the usual methods of removing the battery, uninstalling the battery from device manager and so on. These methods did not work. So, I went ahead and let the battery drop to around 4%. When letting the battery drop to this level I won't receive the plugged in, not charging message. However, if my battery is at a point between 95/90% and around 15% I will receive the plugged in, not charging message. However, this is where I am confused. If I click the battery icon it will begin charging the battery.

So, it is my understanding there must be some sort of setting somewhere that causes my battery to charge upon the battery icon being clicked.

Has anyone heard of such problem before? and if so, how do I go around sorting such problem?

Thank you everyone.

I have had it with Vista. Out of all the 6 computers I have had, this is my only one with Vista and to tell you the truth, this has had the most problems. This never happened to me since recently. Whenever I plug in my computer to AC power, it shows as plugged in, not charging. I take it out for a while to cool it down, and then after about 15-20 minutes I put it back in, and it shows as fine. When I scan it with HP Battery Check (during "plugged in, not charging") it shows as "Replace Battery". When I scan it after I fix the problem (plugged in, charging) it shows as "Good". Then after approximately 2 hours it again shows as plugged in, not charging. Does anybody know why?

Thanks,
RF

P.S. I am still under parts and labor warranty, just in case.

Welcome to the forum.
 
Go to Lenovo Settings. Click the battey icon on the left tool bar to go to Power Status. Scroll down to Battery Charge Threshold. Is it enabled? If so then that may be inhibiting the battery from charging beyond the threshold percentage.
 
At the top of the Power Status page click Show Details. A Status of "No Activity" will confirm this. Otherwise the status will be either "Charging" or "Discharging."

I'm running Windows 7, my three month old battery stopped charging this morning. When it's plugged in it says "plugged in and not charging".
 
I've tried the fix that has you uninstall Microsoft ACPI, remove battery, etc. and it doesn't work.
 
Any ideas for a fix?

What make and model computer? Dell computers need to recognize the power adapter to charge the battery. If you have a dell computer tap F2 after powering on to go into the bios, under battery information there should be something that says power adapter and either 65w, 90w, or whatver the wattage of the adapter is. If it says power adapter not recognized, it will not charge the battery.
 
A few things can cause this, a bad power adapter or the cable itself (the center pin is what carries the signal). It could also be the DC jack built into the laptop. (This is the jack the power adapter plugs into). Test with a different power adapter if your adapter is not recognized.
 
Visually inspect both your power adapter end and the jack built into the computer for damage. If it is the jack built into the computer, some are soldered to the board and not easily or cheaply replaced though it can be done (I just did one today in about 45 minutes). Some are not soldered to the board which makes them cheaper and easier to replace. Tech shops generally charge quite a bit to replace a jack if it is soldered in.

The usual problem of battery "plugged in and ot charging".. Only thing is that this is an inbuilt battery and non removable! So cant use the normal method as posted out on forum for same category.I have 1+1 year warranty on this product and interestingly the battery started showing this problem just as soon as warranty for battery expired. Want to know is someone else faced this issue too! and what's the solution.

Hi there,

I have been having multiple problems with my laptop, even after doing clean re-instal twice.

When ever I plug in the charger, it says-plugged in, not charging. I googled the problem and read about the following advice in a thread here, it advised me to shutdown the laptop, take out the battery, restart, go to device manager, under batteries, uninstall Microsoft ACPI- Complaint Control Method battery, shut down, replece battery and it will work. Well, it does work, till such time it is on and its back to square one after it is restarted.

I had read about this here in this thread
dell laptop battery not charging

in the link given, which is Plugged in, not charging Windows 7 solution : Jeffrey Palermo (.com)

The other problem I'm facing is that while typing, the cursor jumps on its own to the previous column.

the third issue is that I'm unable to understand how to reolve the issue about Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R) 3.0 + High Speed Adapter, see the screen shot of the device manager.

I hope I've posted the thread in the right section
