After that if I remove battery laptop shuts down and I have to plug it of harger and then to plug it again and then laptop starts on adapter. Can you tell me is problem in my motherboard or just in DC connector? Sorry for bad english.Best regards,Ristic Nikola

Hello, I have a HP 4530s with this problem: If I remove and insert the battery while Windows is running, the battery charges for a little while and then stops charging ("Plugged in, not charging). An orange light is blinking near the power connector. If I remove and insert the battery again, it charges for a while and then stops again. If I turn off Windows and disconnect AC power, if the orange light was blonking, it continues blonking (didn't wait to see how long). If I do this enough times, the battery charges to full. When I disconnect the AC power the laptop works normally on the battery (battery capacity is OK). What I have tried:1. removing the battery, disconnecting AC, holding power button for 40s, reconnecting AC, starting Windows, shutting down Windows, inserting the battery.2. Updating the BIOS to the latest version (F60) - this actually helped because previously the battery was not detected at all if removed and inserted until I did #1.

Hello I bought new battery for my laptop 4530s. In HP support assistant I ran HP battery check test and the results showed my battery was not discharging even when it is fully discharged to 0 percent and I was running my laptop with AC adapter. Plus it didn't show that it was charging either.The AC adapter is not charging the battery and the laptop works fine when only connected with AC adapter. I tried hard resetting and under the device manager Microsoft ACPI reinstall method but it didn't work and still I am unable to charge the battery. I read on some forums and also tried to update my BIOS, but surprisingly during the BIOS update through USB and only AC adapter plugged in, on the BIOS update page it was written to connect external power eventhough only source that was connected was AC adapter. The problem is with my AC adapter or BIOS or charging circuitory please guide? An early response in this regard will be highly treasured.

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 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.

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?

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)

So...
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...

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.

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 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

Hi,      Basically my Hp laptop that i have had for just over year is coming up with 'plugged in not charging' or just doesnt recognise the charger at all. My laptop will only charge if it is in sleep mode or completely turned off. With just AC adaptor plugged in with no battery, my laptop will not turn on. I have ran all the tests on the battery and they have passed. Really need help to figure out what is wrong because all methods used on internet does not work. One did work for about 2 weeks then started to play up again. I have even downgraded the updates on my laptop form windows 10 to 8 and still doesnt work.  Need advise soon as. Many thanks.

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?

A:Plugged in and not charging

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.

Hi,

I got replacement laptop and that also have same issue.
I tried with new AC adaptor and same issue.

I uninstall Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery and same issue.

Googled as well and tried but nonthing seems to be working.

Plugged in, not charging on HP Business Notebook
plugged in not charging after Win 7 install
I contacted HP again and they said that some issue might be with system board.
I took 10 days to transfer data to this laptop with all s/w...

Can someone please help me to resolve the issue or suggest whether its hardware issue or Win 7 issue.

Thanks in advance

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!

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?
