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 ! 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

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!

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?

The battery charges perfectly in the other laptop but not in my laptop. When swithcing the batteries form the other pc it will not charge in my PC. bot both are fine in the other PC. I have removed the battery, checked power supply, un-installed and reinstalled the ACPI-complaint and adapter as suggested by most. 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)

Thus:

I think theres a problem with my battery
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...
(plugged in, not charging)
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.

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."

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.

No, a new battery does not need calibrating. If you leave the laptop turned off but plugged in overnight, does it charge the battery to full?

Hi, I initially had a problem when my battery was plugged in but it wasn't charging. Later on, after a few searches here and there, including on hp forums, I found a post that explained the problem. So, I followed the instructions in that post to the letter, and it worked. But not for long, I turned off the laptop at night and when I turned it on in the morning again, it displayed the same message, "Plugged in, not charging". I repeated the same steps and then it started to charge again, but then when I shut it down and turned it on again, it did the same thing. I can't keep doing this again and again, I need a permanent solution. I need to know if I need to replace the battery or something. PS: The post I found a solution to my problem is,  https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Plugged-in-not-charging-Batter...

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?

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.

Hi NIRO222,
Is the adapter frayed? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter jack hold still and firm or does it fall off easily? The alternate adapters and batteries you have tried, are they Dell products certified for your system model?
If possible, update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1WweDdU
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status with and without the adapter connected. Also, wiggle the adapter jack while connected to the system and check if the adapter status changes at any point in BIOS.
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.
If the system is under warranty, write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details. If there is no warranty, then we can help with a paid service call if required.
Keep us updated.

Started up my laptop and error message, battery out of memory. Hit enter to resart computer. Went to check on battery level and said plugged in not charging. Not sure what this means and how to fix the issue. I've had the laptop since Febuary 2015 with no issues.

Not sure what this means and how to fix the issue. I've had the laptop since Febuary 2015 with no issues.Means bad battery or bad adapter but if you keep the battery out and it works that means bad battery and you need to contact HP warranty to fix this problem.

I feel as if this is a pretty common issue, and it's a problem that I have unfortunately faced once before. The last time I took to these forums, I ended up replacing the battery, and that seemed to fix the issue, but here I am not even 5 months later, and this problem is already rearing it's ugly head again, apparently replacing the battery did not fix the root of this issue.
Just like last time, my computer will now only charge to a certain percentage (never 100) and will stop charging altogether, I'm at my wits end on how to deal with this issue, and replacing the battery seems like only a small-term solution, does anyone have any ideas?

Hi all, My laptop ( HP pavilion 15-ab237na) is plugged in to the charger. When I click the battery icon on the task bar it says it is plugged in but not charging . However it is also not losing charge whilst plugged in. It is relatively new, I got it in January. I'm very confused as to why it is not charging and want to know if there is a way I can easily and quickly fix this. Help would be much appreciated.

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.

My laptop battery had drained and then I went on holiday and since being home it displays either "0% available (plugged in, not charging)" or "0% available (plugged in, charging)". Both times it isn't actually charging. As soon as the AC adapter is unplugged the device shuts down due to it being out of charge.  I have been reading many solutions online and none have seemed to work like uninstalling Microsoft ACPI-compliant control method battery and rebooting the computer- I've tried this several times with and without the battery in and neither attempts have proven successful. The AC adapter is working fine as the laptop boots up without a battery with just the cable perfectly well. Does anybody have any solutions for me to be able to charge my battery?

Pull the battery from the machine, then reinstall it.
Sometimes this will work.
