My 4540s recently has problems with battery charging. When I plug in, on the taskbar it says : "Plugged in, charging", however it is not charging. It is not going above 0%. I followed the steps that are here like uninstalling "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" and then removing battery, holding power button for a minute and then putting back battery and turning notebook on. But it was useless. My laptop still not charging. Please help me with this issue.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Farahim wrote:The result is the same even when the laptop is turned off: It's not charging. It's always 0% and the light does not change its color to green (which indicates that its charged).That is incorrect. Off, as in no color, indicates fully charged. See the image I provided to you in my previous post. If you purchased the battery from a vendor who provides a guarantee, it should be still in warranty since it has been less than a year. Contact them for a replacement.

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

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,
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)

Thus:

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.

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.

Sounds to me like the dog has damaged the lappy as well as your battery charger or that the battery has died of natural causes. Best to take it to a qualified tech and get him/her to test the battery/charging circuitry. See if you can get hold of another battery (borrow one) and test the system with that. At least then you will be able to rule out some of the possible faults. Does the lappy run properly when the charger is connected?

This problem intermittently occurred when using Windows7, and continues to happen intermittently after upgrading to Windows 10.  I notice that status reads "Plugged in but not charging", with blinking white light near adapter. If I shutdown, the problem seemingly persists (blinking white light). If I simply remove and replace the battery while powered off, charging resumes and works for a while (maybe a day or two), but before long I have to repeat the process. I need to get an additional laptop for my wife, and was hoping to get another Envy 15, but she will not be able to deal with this kind of a problem.

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

This is the second time I had this problem. The first time, replacing the whole power brick and cord fixed it. Now, about a year later, the same thing is happening! The battery is only at 40% and it has a horrible battery life. The adapter is an igo green adapter, so the computer MUST be in use for it to charge. Hitting the button on the brick when the power is off does nothing. What do I do? This is my main computer and I would be lost without it. My son needs it for homework often and he would FAIL without it.

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.

Hello! Recently my adapter burned due to being exposed to water. Anyway, I contacted the Hp parts store and ordered the replacement adapter. However, when I plugged it in it shows that it is charging  then suddenly it stops and it says (Plugged in, not charging). I ordered the adapter's replacement that was mentioned on my old adapter. I have no idea what could be causing the problem!Please help!

@Salmaa

  I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details). If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.

Get this error frequently.

Computer is from America (110v), but I am living in Jordan (240v)... although charger does say it should take 110-240v.

I am currently using this transformer:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/240v-110v-S...7478&sr=8-1&keywords=transformer+110v+t0+240v

Would upgrading to something more heavy duty like this fix the problem:

Or is there something else?

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."

when i do a search online, this seems to be a common problem with acer laptops. obviously you cannot remove the battery since it is built in the S3 as a lot of people have suggested to do that with removable batteries to reset it. the issue appears to be intermittent. sometimes it says 100% charged but other times it says 98% available (plugged in, not charging). even though there is a lot of people complaining about this on the internet, i cannot find a solution to this issue. please help. thank you.

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.

Hiya pal and welcome to the forums.
Have you tried doing this ... (it's a bit confusing, but it has worked for some laptops that I've come across with the same issues)

01. Turn off laptop.
02. Unplug AC power.
03. Remove battery.
04. Replace AC power.
05. Turn on laptop, allow OS to boot.
06. Once logged in to the machine, perform a normal shut down.
07. Unplug AC power.
08. Replace battery.
09. Replace AC power.
10. Turn on laptop, allow OS to boot. The battery should once again be charging as normal.

Hope this helps
