Plugged in, Charging but not charging

Q: Plugged in, Charging but not charging

I have a HP Probook 4740s laptop. When the laptop is open (ON) and I plug in the power it shows Plugged in, Charging but it does not charge. The only time it charges in when I have the laptop closed (cover down). I have run the EUFI and systems diagnostics, uninstalled and re-installed the battery drivers in Device Manager and the battery report is fine but the problem still persists. Anyone ever had this issue kindly assist. I don't have any warranty on the laptop.

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
(I'm running windows 10 X64)

Hi supporter,
I buy a laptop DELL XPS 13 9350 from Microsoft store (NY) last week. But it stop charging at 80%. I have read all related topics on this forum, but my issue isn't solve. I did: - Update Window- update BIOS ver 1.4.4- BIOS > setting > general Battery Information: health excellent, 80% (Idle), AC Adapter = 45W-Power Management > Primary Battery Charge Configuration: Standard- all step here (www.dell.com/.../SLN296542), except (step 5 & 6).- I ran diognasis test in BIOS: everything passed. What could I do next? Thanks

A:XPS 13 9350, stop charging at 80% (plugged in, not charging)

Today, battery not charging at 70% but if I unplug power cord, it turns off immediately and can not power it on until I plug in. So I must charge battery continually during using. My laptop now becomes desktop!
Check battery heath (F2): "battery must replace". My laptop is OK except battery.
What happened with my new laptop for using 3 weeks?
Thank for your support.

Hey,

I just got my computer back from having the motherboard switched out because of another problem, but now my battery will not charge. The light is on and it says it is charging, but it isn't. Should I attempt a gauge reset or something else?

It is a Lenovo y50, which I have had for 3 months. The battery needs to be unscrewed from the back.
Thanks!
 

A:Says plugged in and charging, but is not charging. Just got motherboard fixed.

If it is not charging maybe the battery is defective.
Did they gave you back the original charger?
Did they install another different motherboard which might use a different charger?
You may need to contact the person who repaired it to find out.

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!

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)

Thus:

But I don't wanna risk buying a new one. (cost a lot)
So I wanna be sure of what's the problem...

it shows
35% (plugged in, charging) but it never goes up to 36% at all.
But after some minutes...

and my battery charge LED indicator is flashing....

I did this Method that I seen here

But well, it still didn't go up to 36%

Some say that I could just take the battery off the laptop...
and still use my battery charger...
But I don't wanna risk damaging the charger...
If that happens, I have two things I need to fix
And I don't think I can take it.

A:35% (plugged in, charging) then not charging. :|

Hello and welcome. I read those instructions. and from your post, i can assume that you did those steps correctly and are still having issues. To further trouble shoot this , how bout testing what happens when you are running on battery and the charge is waaaaay low. Plug it in and see if it charges. and if it just charges to the one level of 35% . If this happens after it ( battery ) has been run down to a low power state and only charges to 35% , then to me that would indicate a battery issue. So, with that in mind, let battery run down and then plug it in and report back how far it charges back up to. Also, note how long it takes it to run down to a state where you need to recharge it.

It has been 3 months the battery is not getting charged. When I hover the mouse, it shows "Plugged in, not charging" And now the battery is not giving any backup at all. The moment I remove the AC Adapter, it turns off. I know it can be fixed by the Firmware update but I am not able to find any BIOS update on HP website.Please help me with this issue.  Just give the steps and I will be doing the troubleshooting myself.

A:Plugged in, not charging

Do you know if the laptop is still under warranty? Here a few things to try: 1. Unplug the powercord from the outlet, wait a few minutes then plug it in a different outlet in a different room. 2.  Examine the entire length of the power cord for tears, dents, and worn-down insulation. If you notice any, or if the power brick is warped or smells like burnt plastic, the cord is probably faulty. 3. If the cord's attachment to your laptop wobbles or feels loose, there could be a problem with the connection. Unplug the cord, remove debris with a wooden toothpick, and remove heavy dust build-up with compressed air. 4. Shut down the computer, remove the battery, and plug the computer in. If the computer won't turn on, you probably need a new cord. If you can start it up again in this situation, the charging issue is probably due to the battery itself, or your computer's interaction with the battery.

Hi BDVTJE,
What is the exact system model? 
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).
Ensure you back up all imp data on the system and then force the BIOS flash if required - http://dell.to/2hnhjs4
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 with another adapter and battery first, if the adapter fits in loose, then replace the dc port, if nothing works, then the motherboard might be at fault.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

That happens for me too very often =).
That isn`t a issue, if it isn`t charging is because it already charged and now he is holding. For me it stays always at 99% charged, not charging.

Okay so I've had this Dell Inspiration 15 since December 2016. It has since had many issues such as of course the "Plugged In, Not Charging". This has happened 2 times now, and possibly a 3rd time and I find that it's very ridiculous that I need to be worrying about this, especially after 2 previous incidents. The first time, I thought it might just be a bad cable which we never got an answer for, so we had to buy a brand new plug. Just like the previous one, nothing seemed to be wrong but eventually after only a month or so after the first incident (which happened only 2 months after buying the computer), it happened again. This time we went to Best Buy. There they gave me a new plug and it worked and we were told its just that dell products went down in stability. This plug we have had for about 3 or 4 months. Now its happening AGAIN. I don't know what's wrong. It also is working but not, I have to adjust it slightly and pray to make it work and as of now it is working, but its very worrisome that its gonna stop working, so now that all of the background info is out of the way, here's my real question.
HOW DO I STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING? AND WHAT DO I DO TO FIX IT? Because I've spent almost 200 dollars now on plugs after taking a lot of care with my previous plugs and this current one and I really REALLY don't want to buy another. I want to know this because I'm pretty sure at some point its not going to work even after jiggling it a... Read more

It may be a failsafe to avoid overcharging of the batts, but the fools at HP tech support should have been able to tell you that if it was the case. However with HP outsourcing tech support to India, Roger (I mean Rajah) and his tech support isnt the highest level.

If your lappy batt charges fine when it's totally depleted, I wouldnt worry. And really you shouldnt be topping off a charge at 95-99%... LET IT DRAIN!

A:98% available (plugged in, not charging)

Hi Igbalfa This problem isn't particularly an Acer fault - it is a Windows Anomaly! Shutdown laptop & remove power cable. Underneath your laptop there is a battery reset pinhole. Use a pin or a paperclip to reset the battery. If that alone doesn't work then additionally: Connect power & restartGo to device manager (right click "Computer" & select manage)Under the Batteries section, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery (or similar) listings, and select Uninstall.Shutdown laptop & disconnect mains powerReset your battery (as above)Connect power & restartHopefully, the message will be gone & it should now charge.

I bought a replacement battery as my original battery would charge but not lose charge quickly.  I've been thru two replacement batteries that test fine but still get the plugged in, not charging message.  I've tried the ACPI delete, power down, etc. process and it has not helped.  The AC adapter is working as it does charge the old battery.  When i replace the new battery with the old battery it shows plugged in, charging!!  Not sure what else to do.

I have been experiencing this issue for a few weeks now. The battery icon indicates my percentage of available battery and then "plugged in, not charging". I have gone through all forums and tried the following:- Uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery, then shutting down and searching for hardware changes to reinstall. When I click uninstall, it starts uninstalling, then stops, removes it, but this doesn't help.- Updating the battery drivers and the adapter drivers.- I ran a battery report to see if there was an issue with the battery (my laptop is 2 years old) and it came out clean.- I have tried to run the battery fix in the HP troubleshooter, but it comes back with "battery current status unknown".- I have refreshed the whole laptop, deleting and reinstalling everything.All the HP fixes on your webpage is only for removable batteries, while mine is integrated and I would have to pick apart the whole laptop to get it out. Of course I have also checked that there are no issues with the charger itself and that there is no smell of burnt plastic etc. in any of the parts.Hope someone can help as a last resort before handing it in to tech repair.

Battery claims it is at 97% charge... I have not unplugged the AC Adapter at any point in the last couple of months while the system was on, so that battery SHOULD BE reading 100%.

I only just started keeping the battery plugged in while using the system on all AC Power for the sake of not worrying if the battery is going to explode just sitting on the desk, permanently lose charge capacity, or something else. My mom's battery has been plugged in while she uses the AC for the last year without this issue... that said, the last time we had this problem, with a Dell 1525, the MB fried out taking all the fans, the AC adapter AND the battery out of commission.

What do I need to check, or run, to figure out what the heck is going on here? I don't want to do anything until I'm sure whatever it is won't cause any further, more serious problems. I'm out of the warranty... so need to be careful here.

Also, I did recently suffer a BSOD but suspect Silverlight from Netflix as the cause as that is what I was doing at the time of that incident (it crashed just before that BSOD), however now I've noticed this... I just don't know.

Thank you for the help. =(

A:Plugged in, not charging...

Batteries should be re-cycled (allowed to drain competely) every month or so, or the lose the capacity to fully charge suspect that is what is going on here.

Try to re-cycle per mfr's directions.

During that time the laptop was turned on while the electricity is off, it was working on the battery not plug in.. After suddenly there was power and then ran out and then came electricity. It was a problem of electricity in my municipality. For many hours then when he came voltage electricity, i turn the laptop and the battery ac adapter was 22% available and say: plugged in, not charging. What is the reason why my battery will not charge? Now is plugged but now charging. Earlier when cable was plugged in, the battery was charging. What should i do to fix the problem?
Thanks.

A:Help! plugged in, not charging.

I suppose it's possible that your charger or the adapter where it attaches to the motherboard got fried when the power came back on due to a surge. Is there a small green light on the power cord and a light on where it plugs into the motherboard?

There should also be a small LED on the front of the computer that gets lit when it's plugged in. Do you have that light?

You might try unplugging the AC and removing the battery. Hold down the power button for about 30 seconds. Then just plug the AC in and leave the battery out.

A:plugged in, not charging

Most likely you need a new battery.

Four years is a pretty good life span for laptop batteries, and when they go they do not always give warning. Sometimes it is "blink", just like a light bulb.

One thing to check is that the battery is fully seated and clicked in, and that the contacts are clean and not obstructed by dust.

Other than some change you made to settings or hardware, if everything was status quo and it just stopped working then it is probably no more complicated than that.

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

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.
