Laptop plugged in and charging, but not charging

Q: Laptop plugged in and charging, but not charging

I found out yesterday morning that for some reason, the battery on my laptop isn't charging. I'm staying at my mother's house for the weekend and since then the problem has occured. At home, it always charged properly and never gave me any problems. Could I need a new battery? I've tried going to Device Manager and uninstalling and re-installing drivers and the whole 9 yards, yet the problem still persists. Thank you in advance

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,
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!

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 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.

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)

I need a new battery for a laptop that is a little over three years old. The computer does not turn on at all when on battery but works fine when plugged in. My frustration is that I spent over 40 minutes on the phone with HP technical support and was rudely told that the computer, which just went off my extended warranty, was no longer supported and they would not sell me a new battery or even let me know which battery to puchase on Amazon. The computer is only three years old and outside the battery works fine so I would really prefer to to just get a new battery rather than having to purchase a whole new computer. Could someone please let me know the battery that I should purchase for an HP TouchPad Ultra book 4?

I noticed my laptop was not charging when plugged in. It says 'plugged in, not charging'.The battery eventually died and I left it alone for a few hours dead. I plugged it in after that and it started charging again after that, so I charged it up all the way and I thought all was good, until I unplugged it and the battery began to discharge. After that it went back to the 'plugged in, not charging' status.  I did a battery diagnostic which said the battery is good, so it isn't the battery (plus this laptop is only 10 months old). I tried installing any updates/drivers HP said I needed. One of those was some BIOS updated which I did and after viola, it began charging again. While it was charging I unplugged and plugged the charger and it was good, so I charged it up until fully charged. I unplugged it at 100% and let it go down to 96% and tried to recharge it and again got the 'plugged in, not charging' status.  Any clue as to what is  causing this? It seems like its some kind of software issue.

hi, i am writing this on my desktop as my laptop battery is discharged now so cannot power up.

i am running a toshiba satellite L300D-10Q with vista. it was my dad's & is probably about 4 years old now with original battery still installed. recently i noticed that when i had the power lead attached the power & battery led's would flash constantly & hovering the cursor over the battery icon, it showed as not charging.

i bought a new adaptor & still had the same problem.

so thinking it was the battery on the way out i bought a new one which was an alternative & cheaper just to prove if that was the problem & for about 15 mins the new one charged. then the original problem came back.

i have tried powering up without the battery installed & nothing happens.

any advice would be appreciated

I have a HP G72-b60US Notebook PC that I have had since December of 2010, and it is at 7% and when I hover over the battery thing it says 'plugged in, not charging'.

I have heard this could be a defective battery, but I don't want to have to go buy a new battery and then find out that it still doesn't work.

What could be wrong with it?
What should I do?
 

A:My HP Laptop Says 'Plugged In, Not Charging'

I had this happen on a HP laptop before. I found a fix online that when I read it, I thought to myself there was no way that this would work, but I was wrong, and it did work.

Basically, here are the steps that I would do when my laptop had the same problem. Clean all contacts for the battery using a dry toothbrush. Make sure the power is off and disconnected when doing this. Once done, connect the battery to they laptop and pop it in and out really fast about 30 times. With the battery in, and the system plugged in, turn on the system. Check to see if it is still not charging. If still not charging, with the system on and plugged in, pop the battery in and out of the system really fast about 30 times again. At this point is where my system would all of a sudden show that the battery was charging again.

Again, I have no idea why this worked for me, and other people that found it on the same forum that I did. If you are not comfortable doing this, don't do it. The machine I did it on I barely ever used, and didn't care if something got messed up. If this is your main system and you have a lot of data on it that you need, I would suggest backing up any data before attempting this.

Hi,

Over the last two months my laptop's ability to charge it's battery has degraded.
It went from being able to charge a battery fully (100%), to not being able to charge beyond 98%, then 66%, then 30%, and now finally it says "0% availability (plugged in, charging)", but it never increases in charge.

Thus the laptop works when plugged into the charger, but will not switch on when attached only to the battery.

I have restarted the computer multiple times - first shutting the machine down, then unplugging it, removing the battery, holding the start button down for one minute, then reattaching the battery, plugging the charger back in and restarting the machine.

I have installed updates for "Batteries" (ie. Microsoft AC Adapter, Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery, and Microsoft Composite Battery) in Device Manager.
I have also uninstalled the Microsoft ACPI Complaint Control Method Battery and shutdown and restarted the laptop repeatedly.

Just now I called Toshiba support and updated BIOS from 1.50 to 1.70, then restarted the computer, but again the battery will not charge.

I bought a new battery which showed that it was fully charged when when I attached it to my laptop, but when the charge depleted to 0%, I got the same message as with the other battery: "0% availability (plugged in, charging)".

I am really stumped. How else can I attempt to increase the battery charging capability of my laptop?

A:My laptop is plugged in, but battery is not charging

In my opinion old battery was definitely defective.
Is your new battery original Toshiba battery or some third part product?

When you start notebook without battery and put it in place when Windows is loaded does the problem persists?

Have an old laptop asus u45jc-a1. I haven't used this laptop in a while since its i3-370m processor and thus slow for what i do. Well i recently powered up this laptop and then put the charger in it...


I get 0% available, plugged in, charging. Basically that means the moment i unplug the charger, the laptop immediately shuts down. Thus even if it has a few minutes, that would be okay. I had bought a replacement charger on ebay a while back for pretty cheap, it was under 20 dollars i recalled. It worked for a while but i never really used this laptop but got charger mainly because well the asus laptop still works and thus just get a replacement charger.


Does this mean my charger doesn't work? Or could it be possibly the battery?


I see a thread here a while back where someone fixed it by going to this and uninstalling it. Is this safe to do? It ask are you sure you want to delete this and well... that seems to be important.

  Hi @mciaccia, Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. It is a great site for information and questions. I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion x360 and issues with the Battery. Here is a link to calibrate and test the Battery.  Here is a link to troubleshoot the battery on a Notebook. You should be able to complete these with the Notebook plugged into the AC adapter.Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system at the time of purchase or that need updating. If that does not help try the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery is basically the driver that communicates between the computer and the battery. There is a chance that it is corrupted. It is reading the battery level wrong, so the computer thinks the battery level is higher then what is actually is, so when it runs out of juice it shuts down.Go to Device Manager, Select BatteriesRight click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed thereClick Uninstall, at the prompt put a check in the box to remove the current driverShutdown the computerRemove the battery for minute and then put it back inWhen the computer comes back up it should automatically find the driver.Go to Device ManagerSelect BatteriesRight click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed thereClick "Search automatically fo...

I have a Vista Laptop that is not charging at times. The power jack it pushed in and both my chargers spark when I move the plug around so it could charge. I don?t know if it?s my laptop or the Charger. Should I get the power jack fixed, get a new battery or a new charger? Please Help!!

A:Laptop charger plugged in but not charging

Esmmy, look in the hole on your laptop where the power adapter would plug in and you'll see the silver power pin. Using a push button pen, put it on the end of the power pin and see if you can move the pin at all. Any movement on that pin means it's broken and the DC Jack needs to be replaced. Most DC Jacks are soldered to the motherboard and need to be repaired by someone experienced in desoldering and soldering.

If the DC Jack is broken, the power adapter won't charge your battery since it's not making a solid connection inside. Moving it around too much while plugged in could short something, cause further damage or even a fire.. Best to have it repaired by an experienced technician.

I don't know If I'm posting to the right thread, but whatever. As you can tell by the subject, my laptop is plugged in to a wall outlet, but it isn't charging, nor is the battery depleting when I use it. This problem only appeared some days ago. Below is a list of everything I have tried doing to fix this problem, as well as other information.  The wall outlet works fine, I plugged my phone into it and it started charging. The computer doesn't recharge to a certain percentage, it just sustains the battery percentage it has while it's plugged in. Uninstalling and Reinstalling Micorsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery and Microsoft AC Adapter via the Device Manager did nothing, nor did installing new drivers for them. Resetting the BIOS didn't help. I checked to see if the battery was secure, so I removed it and made sure it was completely plugged in to the computer. It didn't help. Shutting down the computer, unplugging everything, and holding down the power button for 40 seconds didn't work. I can't and have never been able to turn on the computer without the battery, even if it's plugged in. The LED next to the charging port does blink three times when I try to turn on the computer without the battery while its plugged in, and it doesn't blink when it isn't plugged in, so it can't be a problem with the cord. I checked if the physical connection between the charging port and the rest of the computer was secure, and it is...

As per the thread title, the battery is recognised as being present, but is not charging, and when the power is disconnected, will not run on battery power. I have come to the conclusion that it is most likely a hardware issue, see below.
Comptuer is the one in my 'System Specs', just on 2 years old, out of warranty period.
I have checked the battery connections and visually all is in order.
I have searched, and applied what appears to be a common fix for this, but did not change the situation;
>Disconnect AC
>Shutdown
>Remove battery

It runs normally using the power cord, so I am thinking that it is an issue with either the battery or something more sinister, within the computer/motherboard, as it was fine one moment, but not the next.

Prior to this the battery would last approx. 2 hours, and HW moniter showed it had around 30% wear, now shows 56% wear.

I have never had a battery suddenly die like this, but am thinking it is a distinct possiblity given the symptoms. Should I bite the bullet and order a new battery and hope that this is the fix? or is there likely a solution I have not come across?

Thanks in advance, Tim.

A:Laptop Battery - Plugged in, not charging.

Buying a new battery is an expensive way to test but it may be the only way unless you have a multi tester and can test your battery. Two hours seems like a very short time for a laptop to run on a full charge unless you are playing videos constantly.

I have had this issue with a MacBook Pro and it turned out to be a 4 pin connector under the keyboard that was faulty.

Hello Everyone, I have a "HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC" with Windows 8.1 and is almost two years old.  A few months ago I had my laptop on my lap and it randomly turned off, after turning it back on it did not charge above around 84%.  Every now and then I would plug it in to charge and it would say "plugged in, not charging" so I fixed the issue by turning it off, taking the battery out, turning it on, uninstalling  Microsoft ACPI-Control Compliant Method Battery, turning it off, putting the battery in, turning it back on, and the ACPI-CCMB would update and it charged back up to around 84%. As of about a week ago, that stopped working. I've tried updating the ACPI-CCMB, doing the above multiple times, and nothing works. I noticed the recommendation for the HP battery utility but 1) that didn't work in the past when it wouldn't fully charge and 2) the computer has a 0 percent charge and will not hold a charge, so in the step where it says to turn it on unplugged, my computer won't turn on. After trying to use the HP battery utility a few things happened. 1) I have to mash the escape button in order to access the menu, pressing it when the logo appears like it says does nothing. 2) When I tried to run the battery test, it said 2 minutes remaining and 1% complete before freezing the computer up and after pressing the power button it instantly turned off. I don't know if I need to get a new battery or if I just need to try something I haven't hea...

my laptop is stuck at 99% plugged in,charging.

so here is the story..
i was watching a video on youtube after few minutes the laptop got shutdown immediately without any message,and the laptop was too hot and i think it had shut down because of overheating(this had never happened) .then i left it to cool down ,after some minutes i started it without plugging it to charge .so i checked that the laptop's fan was making noise and running in less speed .after sometime it gets less noisy and the speed was also decreased but when i started a fan dust removal all seemed good ,no noise or any speed decrease,but sometimes it did.and all the laptop's functions and performance it all seemed as it was before.when i plugged in my charger it was slowly charging but at 99% it's stuck.99% plugged in,charging.
my laptop- lenovo Z510
so is there any way to fix the fan noise and speed problem ?
i guess that the battery stuck in 99% might take time to fully charge.
and as always
thanks

Hi ABHAYHENDRE,
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 with another adapter and battery and check.
Force the BIOS flash if required - http://dell.to/2hnhjs4
If the adapter is not detected, test another adapter. If the adapter fits in loose, replace the dc port - http://bit.ly/2hxR3OO - this is the part you need.
If nothing works, then I would suspect a motherboard fault.
You could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
My personal suggestion is that, if the motherboard is being replaced, then you could invest your money on a new machine than to repair this system. However, that is your discretion.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me ... Read more

I apologize if this thread is in the wrong section. If so, please move it.

My laptop is not able to charge while being plugged in. While someone was using the laptop, it just turned off due to lack of battery. The thing is, the laptop was plugged in. So now I'm stuck with a non recharging laptop that won't turn on.

If it helps, I have noticed several times (before the actual problem occurred) that when I check the battery status, it would sometime say that it's plugged in but not charging. And the laptop seemed to be hot most of the time.

So, what's the problem? The cord? The actual laptop? What exactly could have cause it and how to resolve the problem?
 

A:Laptop is plugged in but is not charging (wrong section?)

Sounds like the battery... how old is this laptop?

Hi,I bought an HP Pavilion G6 notebook only a couple of months ago, and I have had this problem from the beginning. I have looked at some other forums and it seems like a lot of people have had the same problem with the laptop being plugged in, but not charging.This problem is really frustrating, as the laptop is plugged in to the power source, and into the laptop, but half the time it isn't even registered as being plugged in. The battery gets drained. Once or twice the battery has fully run out (whilst plugged in) and then been charged to 100% next time it was turned on(???!!!!).Please tell me if this is some kind of programming or software fault, or if it could be a hardware fault. I have run the battery checker several times and each time it has not found any problems with it. As the laptop sometimes recognises that it is in fact plugged in (but doesn't charge) I personally suspect that it is not a problem with the power adapter.PLEASE HELP ME!Thanks.(Sorry for the long message)
