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.

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?

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:

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...
(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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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?

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

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?

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.

good day, new member here, i have a lenovo ideapad, i have read some of the threads under "plugged in, not charging" with the solutions on the device manager control method battery uninstall and install. but here is my scenario, my laptop is 4 years old, everything was working just fine, my laptop was unplugged and im working with it running on battery power, when it suddenly turned off (the battery was not drained it was 95%), it did not re start until i plugged it and it was running plugged to the AC charger, but now it wont charge, if you un plug it, the laptop turns off as well even if it still had some battery percentage left, it is now a compact desktop, can somebody help?

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.

Hey guys

I'm sure this is a common topic but I still need help on it. I have had my Dell M5040 laptop for nearly 5 months now and until the last few days its been fine charging the battery.

However I noticed when I plug the charger in it says 'plugged in, not charging'. Usually this is resolved at the time by re-inserting the charger (note: I've been using the same charger and battery that was supplied)

Today it hasn't been doing that. But besides that I want to be able to insert the charger knowing everytime it will charge my battery the way it should do!

Any help would be great

Thanks

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.

Hello,   I have a new (9 months old) HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab268ca.  I have used this computer very little as my last computer was still operating and I wanted to finish some projects off on it before moving to this new computer.  The computer was fine for the first few uses but now the battery is completely drained, I can only use it if it is plugged in to a power source.  When trying to charge the battery, which I can remove, it says: Plugged in, not charging.   This has become discouraging.  I don't know how to fix this problem.  I'm not sure why a computer that is less than a year old and hasn't been used is doing this.  Since my computer is still under warranty I would like to see this problem fixed.  If someone from HP can contact me and let me know how to fix this or who I have to bring my computer to in order to have my warranty cover this, that would be greatly appreciated.   This is the first time I've bought an HP product and I can honestly say it has been a frustrating process, especially after seeing that this has been a problem for the last few years, judging by other customer's comments.  I hope this can be fixed because I really do like everything this computer can offer, except that it's battery won't charge, rendering my laptop useless.  Thank you very much for your reply, Michael

There could be a few reasons for that. The motherboard is broken, the battery is broken, the AC adapter is broken. Contact the manufacture of your laptop.
