Hi there,
I've been having a strange issue with the battery/charging of my Acer Aspire 5742 laptop.
A couple of weeks ago, the laptop suddenly stopped charging. At this point I replaced the charger, and still it wasn't working, I then replaced the battery too. I found that both the charging cable and the battery had stopped functioning.(I.e. Would not work unless both new items were in use).

It then worked fine for the past 2 weeks, until yesterday. It wouldn't charge, but when I tried it this morning it charged once but now it won't work again.... I'm very confused.
If you need me to turn my laptop on to check things it currently has about 2 hours battery before it drains.

Any ideas?

Have a Dell Inspiron laptop. Have had this system for about 4-5 years. Problem developed as follows:

About 3-4 weeks ago battery indicator read "9% available (plugged in, not charging)".

I did a search for this problem and found someone's solution was to go into Device Manager/Batteries and delete two files....MS AC Adapter and MS ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery... Then shut down, remove battery and restart. Shut down again, install battery and power up. Those files were rebuilt and the battery indicator read "charging". This worked once. Couple days later the computor malfunctioned again the same way. The above solution did not work the second time.

Bought a new battery, powered up without the AC adapter. Then ran the new battery down to about 6% (as per manufacturers instructions). Shut down, plugged the AC adapter in and powered up. Battery indicator read "12% available (plugged in, not charging)".

Shut down, removed the battery and have been running on just the AC Adapter for about two weeks now. Computer runs OK on just the adapter but seems a bit slow at times.

Today I shut down, installed the new battery and powered up (with the AC Adapter plugged in). Now the battery indicator reads "89% available (plugged in, not charging)". I unplugged the Adapter and the computer dimmed down quite a bit but stayed on.

My thinking is the Adapter is OK since the computer does run. The battery is new and the computer does ru... Read more

I have dell inspiron n5110. I upgraded to windows 10 pro.... Everything was okay but since the past week it shows a battery issue. When I plug in the charger, the battery shows charging for like 5-6 seconds and then it shows not charging. I again pull out the charger from laptop and plug it again and the same happens. Nothing changes on moving the charger a bit here and there...... Only charges  for 5-6 seconds when I plug it off and on.

Replaced my dead battery on my HP, and it's been fine.  I haven't been leaving it plugged in constantly once it's charged.  It got low so I plugged it back in, last I'd checked it was 7 minutes to complete charge, I had lost track of time and checked again, and it's at 99% and saying it's plugged in, but not charging.   Any tips for how to resolve this error.  I don't want to have waste money by draining this battery and not being able  to charge it.   Thanks.

My laptop has been having battery issues for about a month now. First it was the battery draining very fast, and then my charging adapter started acting up. Recently, on February 19th, the battery icon would drain even though the charger was plugged in and the icon said it was charging. I don't know if it is a problem with the battery or if it is a problem with the motherboard but as of now I rely on the adapter only for power to my laptop. I hope someone can tell me if I just need to replace the battery or the whole laptop.

I own a Toshiba Satellite P25 running Windows XP SP2.

I'm in a funny situation regarding my battery/battery charging that I've never heard about...I recently purchased a new battery because my old one wasn't holding a charge. The battery WILL charge but only when the laptop is powered off or in standby. When the power cord is inserted, the instant I power on, the charge light turns off. I've checked the power while in Windows and it reads "AC power, discharging" instead of "charging." On very rare occasions, the charge light on the laptop will remain on for a while after I turned off the computer but will eventually go out.

I've tried playing with the amount of plug I insert into the laptop, but it makes no difference. I'm suspecting it's a hardware problem with the actual port inside the laptop, like maybe it's loose? But that doesn't explain (IMO) why it only charges when the power is off. Or is it likely to be the power cord itself?

I'd love to hear what you pros think. Thanks in advance!

I have a probook 4540s. I recently bought an aftermarket battery as my OEM battery was completely dead. But the problem with it is that, the battery only charges when the laptop is off. But while connected to outlet and on the battery does not take any charge. The laptop starts with only adapter or battery just fine. I checked by reducing processing power to see whether the battery takes any charge but nothing happens. It neither charges nor discharge. I used batteryBar software to see charging rate. Its flat zero all the time when the laptop is on. What can I do to overcome this issue.

Hey all, I bought a G570 the other day and all is great with it. One issue, however, is that when connected to the charger, the laptop's battery does not charge past around 72%. In the taskbar, it will state "72% available (plugged in, charging)" as it should.  Lenovo Energy Management tells me my battery is at 72% as well. I am currently using "Energy Saver" mode. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you require more info, just let me know. -Brettymaccc

My laptop works fine only when ac adapter is connected and no battery inserted. However, when I inserted battery the ac adapter won't charge the battery. I downloaded HP UEFI tool for hardware diagnostic . I checked both battery and ac adapter. The results showed battery is o.k. but AC adapter was not o.k. as no ac adapter was detected and the test result was please connect the AC adapter you want to test. My question is do I need to replace the AC adapter ? or there is some problem with my charging jack / bios etc.

This one has had me confused for some time. I am nearly certain at this point that it is the motherboard that will need to be replaced, but I wanted to see if there was anybody here that has dealt with this issue that may offer a little insight on the situation.


HP Pavillion DV4-1435dx
500 GB HDD
2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
Windows 7 x64

I started having several issues with this machine on boot, so I upgraded the BIOS, OS and RAM. This resolved most of the issues but now we come to the part of the story that has me stumped. The machine is having an unusual charging issue. If I were to remove AC power from the unit while the battery is plugged in, I will not be able to charge the battery again until I completely power the unit off, remove the battery, plug the AC adapter in, and replace the battery. The exception to this rule is if I power the unit completely off (or hibernate it) and remove the AC, I will be able to plug it back in anytime before I power that unit back on and it will function normally. I have since replaced both the AC adapter and the battery, but the issue persists. I have checked all of the advanced power options in the control panel. I have not altered the registry in any way as of yet because I believe this is a hardware issue.

If anybody has any insight into this issue, let me know. I would very much like to know at least what is causing it to justify buying a new mobo or any more parts for the machine.

Hi guys,

ive got a reasonable new HP G70 notebook, what I have noticed is that if my laptop has been on for a while it feels hot, which is only natural I know but im not sure weither its overheating or not, now when I plug my powerpack in to charge my battery when the laptop has been on a while and is hot I get the message "plugged in, not charging".

If I turn the latop off and remove the power supply and leave it for a bit, then when I come back to it, the battery will usually charge as normal.

Does anyone have any idea which part of my laptop is fualty, is my laptop overheating and thats the problem which is causing my battery to not function right? or is just my battery fualty? or my adapter?

Or is the problem with vista settings etc? My laptop is still underwarrenty any help or ideas on what I should do before I ring up customer service? Any help would be great, thanks alot guys

Hi there!

I have an Asus laptop running Windows 7 that is about 4 years old. Recently it stopped charging and would just die. Tried a bunch of things (using a different charger/ using a different battery from the exact same brand/series of laptop etc) to no avail. I took it to a guy to fix and it turned out to be the motherboard - which had to be replaced (ouch ).
Anyway, while this did fix the initial problem it unfortunately caused another.

My laptop thinks it is constantly plugged in and charging even though it is running on battery and losing charge. Because of this issue, I no longer get the notifications that my battery is low and it has caught me out!
I spoke to the guy who fixed my laptop to begin with and he has no idea why it is doing this, and also informed me that it's not great for the laptop either (which I was worried about).

I have played around with the battery options/notifications in settings but this does not help at all. I use my laptop a lot for full screen things (gaming, movies etc) so I'm unable to keep an eye on the battery level.

I'd rather avoid having to pay out again, so does anyone know of perhaps a software program that I can download that would create a pop up on the screen when the battery reaches low levels? The Windows 7 one was great for that as it would pop up over whatever you had playing in full screen.

I've searched google and forums and I'm running out of ideas. I've checked some of the threads h... Read more

A:Satellite R850 - battery and charging issue


What to say; the coffe has been spilled on the notebook and any fluid is not really good for a internal parts especially for the motherboard.

I have no idea what part has been damaged exactly due to the spilled coffee but it looks like an motherboard part is affected. Maybe the power supply electronic is faulty?

I think the notebook needs an check? and don?t ask any pseudo amateur technicians because such guys just talk about possible issues.

The unit needs to be checked by an professional technician (Toshiba authorized service partner in your country) who has some special tools and diagnosis software.

Hello HP forums, I had to come back here and ask you guys/girls a question about the Elitebook series and the battery not charging issue. I recently purchased this laptop to replace the other two garbage HP laptops that we used to have here. The DV9005 was a total waste of money, and the compaq CQ50 wasn't much better either. This elitebook however has been a more decent experience to use thankfully. Now its not a brand new laptop, again just can't afford to pay hundreds to thousands of dollars for a computer.  Anyone who does, well good for you. On to the problem, when I first got the laptop it didn't have the charging adapter or a hard drive. I already had a spare empty drive to use and purchased a generic adapter. About a week later I ended up getting an official adapter branded by HP because I thought it was the problem. While using the generic adapter the battery would sometimes charge, and other times not charge and would make it to about 97-98% and refuse to charge any further, using the generic china crap adapter. I tried all I could think of and followed the guides on the internet. Removing the battery, uninstalling the drivers for it in device manager, rebooting without the battery, then putting the battery back in. These tactics were all hit and miss and worked but only for a little while. I had pulled the harddrive from the compaq system and used it in this one prior to getting rid of the Compaq. It still had the original in... Read more

Hello everyone.

My son brought over his Inspiron 8100...he said it was "dead". I tore it down and found a loose DC power board. I put it back together and it booted right up. Yay!

He brings it back 2 weeks later saying the battery won't charge. It runs perfectly using the AC adapter, but only with the battery removed. So I began testing...

I removed the battery and plugged in the AC adapter. It booted right up into XP. I then inserted the battery and the laptop changed from adapter power to battery power (this should not happen). The battery low indicator came on since the battery charge was low and it was not getting charged from the adapter. I removed the battery (laptop is still plugged into the wall), and the laptop shuts down (this should also not happen). I press the power button and it boots back into windows under the power of the AC adapter.

Here is what I do know. Just 2 weeks ago the battery held a charge for ~2 hours. I replaced the AC adapter and I know it works. Putting a battery into the system forces it to use Battery power instead of using AC adapter power and charging the battery as it should.

I have a pretty good idea what the problem is, but I don't want to lead anyones thinking, so I won't say yet. Here is your chance to shine! What do you guys think the problem is?

Thanks in advance!

The battary plugged in, not charging issue has been posted multiple times in this forum. The solution being taking the battery out, uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI-Coplient Control Method Battery, then restarting the laptop. I have done this over 10 times now, and it works everytime. However, this has become an everyday issue and I am looking for a permanent solution. Is there a driver update from HP or Microsoft exist which would solve this problem?  All of my laptops drivers are up to date as per HP Support assistant software, and windows 10 is also up to date.  Please let me know if there is a better solution. Thank you,Amitava

I've found a number of threads with similar issues, but none of the solutions worked for me, so here it goes:
I have an L500-1GE, which is about 6 years old, but hasn't been used much.
Since yesterday, it won't charge when plugged in, and when I pull the plug, it immediately shuts down (everything goes black suddenly), although it shows the battery to have about 25% power.

I have just installed the newest bios (2.10) from Toshiba's official site, but I don't know if this has anything to do with the aforementioned issue.

Should I just buy a new battery, or is there something to try before that?

My laptop is a Satellite M70-165 PSM70E. I'm using Windows XP Home. I recently bought a new battery and it is impossible to charge it above 50%. I updated BIOS to 1.70 (for non Windows Vista users) and I still have the problems aforementioned. I tried to dischage it completely and charge it again, several times, with no luck.

Is there any solution?

One more question. There is no "EC version" in BIOS, only "BIOS version 1.70". I hoped there will be some battery calibration or power management after BIOS update, but there is no "Power Management" menu in BIOS.

Is that correct?

Thanks in advance.

> recently bought a new battery and it is impossible to charge it above 50%

In my opinion the new battery is not OK.
You should definitely check another new battery? maybe you bought an already used battery???

>One more question. There is no "EC version" in BIOS, only "BIOS version 1.70".
On the Toshiba EU driver page you can find one BIOS update.
I assume such update contain the EC update too.

I recently got a new Hp Omen 17-w033dx from Best Buy. I have noticed when the computer is idle it uses the battery instead of the charger, even though it's plugged in. When I get on the laptop the next day, usually it's shut itself down due to the battery being drained. It will only start charging the battery again if I unplug the charger and plug it back in, after this the charging resumes. Today the battery is currently at 55% and says (Plugged in, not charging) as I have not unplugged the charger and plugged it back in yet today as I wanted to see if it would begin charging on its own, which it isn't. I have to do this every day. Help would be appreciated!

Hi All, Last tuesday when i tried to turn my laptop on, it did not.I Tried connecting power cable directly(without battery) still  did not start. then i tried to reset by pressing start button for longer, still nothing happened. Then staurday evening, i handed it to a local repair shop who told me that power controller is faulty and sent me this pic(Attached below) on whatsapp, stating this needs to be replaced. He charged 1500 rupees for same. Today evening i got my laptop back and it is working as well but as and when i remove power cord, it shuts down completely/suddenly as if there is no battery installed. Last time when i used my laptop everything was working fine. Before i handed him my laptop i also noticed that battery light was glowing orange, but was not turning blue(Battery full light) even after hours of charging and i also left it for overnight charging but the next day still it was showing orange light only.

My Nephews laptops battery ran low and required charging. When the charger is plugged into the laptop the orange 'charging' light illuminates for approximately 6 seconds then, goes out for a further 6. This repeats continuously whilst the battery remains flat and the machine will not power up.
I have checked the output from the charger which is constant although I have no means, at present , of ascertaining the actual output values.
If there is anyone with any hints or clues I should be most grateful' Thanks.

A:Acer Aspire 5552 charging/battery issue

So the laptop will not turn on at all? Does it act the same if you remove the battery? If not the the adapter may be faulty, the DC jack in the laptop may have broken, or there's a motherboard failure in the laptop.

Testing with a known good and compatible power adapter would be the next step.

How old is the laptop, is it still under warranty?

I've recently bought a brand new lenovo Ideapad 510 15IKB MTM is 80SV001PIH. Since last few days I'm facing issue with battery. I plugged in my machine at a charge level of 96%. After half an hour I noticed that still the battery level is 96% . When I put the pointer on battery guage, it's showed that "Plugged in, not charging". In my laptop battery is not removable, so I can't try removing the battery and putting it back again. I've restarted my machine many times but still the situation is same.

Hey like many others I'm having some issues with my FLEX 3-1580. Issue: The battery originally would not charge above 15%, now it will not charge above 14%. The battery light near the power button is on, and the charger works (tested with DMM). Sometimes I get a constant on and off between the computer detecting the power cord. This makes the screen flash back and forth in brightness going from plugged in to unplugged (This is remedied by disabling Microsoft AC Adapter in Device Manager, meaning it then stays "plugged in", still doesn't charge). If the battery is not plugged into the laptop it will start on AC Adapter after many attempts of 2 second boot/stop/boot/stop. Attempts: I have checked the voltages from the power cable internally to where it plugs into the board. The top two connectors get the 21V. The CMOS battery is at 3V. I reapplied thermal paste. I reset all connections. Looked for component burn marks but couldn't see any. I know other laptops have had issues with the MOSFETS but I could not find any MOSFET on the motherboard. Ran registry fixer with CCleaner. Updated all the drivers. Flashed newest BIOS In the end I don't know if its a software problem and something seriously got messed up by a virus in my registry or somthing.. Or if there is something on the motherboard that is bad.

Problem started two weeks ago. Could not power on the laptop, tried many different power outlets. Purchased a universal Laptop charger/cord and it still didn't work. Removed battery, attached power cord and could boot computer on...put the battery back in but battery would not take a charge even though the battery indicator light was amber and the icon in the Win tool bar displayed: 36% available (plugged in, charging). Clicked the icon and displayed 36%, Calculating... Left laptop turned on overnight with battery in and 8 hours later it was still at 36%. With Laptop turned on, I can remove Laptop power cord and battery will continue operation, depleting the battery but when I reconnect the power cord it does not charge the battery (no green light or amber light).  Bottom line, attached power cord with battery in and get no power (green or amber), period. Remove battery, attach power cord and I can boot up the computer. Ran Systems Test - Battery Check: Primary - Replace (42) and received Failure ID:  QAMPPV-82387T-MFGJXF-C0D703. This failure on a brand new battery just recieved two days ago. Same errors with the original battery.  Attempted a power reset to no avail. I could run laptop using the power cord only but doing this would defeat the purpose of owning a laptop. Running on battery will only deplete battery with no way to recharge it. Help!!! Searched forum for answer to my problem and found no... Read more

Hi,i have 3 ThinkPad's L480 that are not charging in the Ultra Dock's.Depending of the used Power Supply (135W, 170W) Lenovo Vantage shows a installed Power Supply with 65W or 90W. The battery is not charging, at the end of the day most of the ThinkPad's are running low on battery. All firmware for ThinkPad and Ultra Dock is up to date, all Windows Updates are installed.Problem has been tested with Lenovo Windows Image, Clean Install and Custom Install. And i am not the only one with this problem, Lenovo has no idea what to fix her. How can i tell the ThinkPad to charge the battery while sitting in the Docks ... ? On Friday Lenovo told me that the ThinkPads are not compatible with the current Ultra Docks !!

I have had my Dell Inspiron 5520 Laptop since late 2012. It has been a great computer, and although I have recently upgraded to a new Dell laptop, I still use my 5520 for writing and entertainment purposes. The only reason I upgraded at all was because I had a hard drive go bad and didn't realize that it was only the hard drive at the time. I restored the computer with a different version of Windows 7 after I replaced the drive and everything is working great - except the battery charging. It is sporadic. What happens is I plug in the charging cord at times, the computer detects it for a second or two, and then it no longer charges. I ran a complete PC health check and it showed everything is working properly and the battery is healthy, but it did not detect it being plugged in even when it was. I also flashed the BIOS, and it had no real affect on the charging issue. WHAT DID WORK was shutting down the computer, removing the battery, and pressing the power button for 30 seconds and reinstalling the battery. After I do that, it does detect the charging cord is connected and the battery charges properly - but only for a week or two, and then I usually have to do it all over again. Any thoughts? Is my battery going? Charging cord? Any other thoughts? It's not a HUGE deal that this is happening. I love this computer. If I can correct the problem, I will. Thanks!

PS - The original dell software had a feature that I could set that ran the battery up and down even while pl... Read more

Dear All,I have Lenovo Thinkpad T460S purchased almost a year ago. Today I suddenly faced problem in charging battery. Charger is plugged in and battery icon is showing "plugged in, charging" but actually it is charging very slowly.

Furthermore, after whole night charging, battery is now 94% charged, battery 2: 100% charged, fully charged; battery 1: 0% charged, not charging (please attached images).Please guide how to get rid of this problem?Thanking in advance. Shahid

I have a ThinkPad T460P. Some time ago it fell off to the side of couch while plugged in and bent the adapter / end of charger insert upon impact. After i would receive a "plugged in but not charging" message. I could still get this machine to charge if i closed it and inserted the charger, let it sit, and then open. Somewhat inconsistent but it worked. Finally the other day i was running a video and the battery drained completely without realizing it was not charging. I received a critically low battery message. Charger no longer worked and machine would not turn on. I bought a new 90W charger to see if it would do the trick. When i plug this in, the light above the thinkpad sign and also the light in power button flashes 3 times but then nothing else. Normally this light would strobe. The charger appears to work as the light near the port has gone from yellow to green. But the machine no longer turns on. Sometimes i can get it to flash when pressing the power but nothing. Also tried a number of tricks like taking the battery out, holding the power button for a while, putting all back in and trying again. Machine will also not turn on when plugged in without the battery in. Thoughts? Am i cooked here?

So, my issue that ive looked everywhere for a solution to is this.  I was about to give this laptop to someone and I reformatted the hard drive to clean it up before doing so.  After this I went to dells site and loaded up the drivers for this machine.  All is fine up till this point.  Then I updated the bios to the newest version a12, and all went fine.

Well, later that day I needed to unplug the laptop and go to a different room and It just turned off after I unplugged it.  It wouldnt turn on with battery power either.  Plugged it back in and it loads fine but the battery is stuck on 36 percent charge and says not charging.  Now im getting a message saying the battery needs to be replaced as well, which is *** because I know that the battery was working just fine before this day.  Not only that why wont a battery with 36 percent charge turn on the laptop?  Its got the flashing red battery symbol when powered on with the ac adapter but without the computer on, but still plugged in, the battery doesnt charge or have any lights. 

I have already tried the uninstalling of the acpi trick, as well as the taking the battery out while its running, or taking it out purging the power and reseating.  Ive tried all the common tricks to no avail.  Not sure whats going on but I know this battery was good, and it still says 36 percent but wont charge and wont power the laptop on.  Hope someone can help.

Thanks Gary

A:DELL VOSTRO 3500 BATTERY ISSUE (not charging and wont power on computer with charge) HELP!

First check:  make sure the BIOS (F2 at powerup) recognizes the AC adapter.  If it does not, the battery will not charge. 
If the AC adapter is not recognized, try another Dell OEM adapter.  If that doesn't solve the problem, replace the DC jack:
And if that doesn't solve the problem, replace the mainboard.
If the AC adapter IS recognized, but the battery will not charge, unplug the system, remove the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.  Try again -- if the battery still won't charge, odds are the battery itself is bad.
If the battery is original to the system, it's about four years old - well past its expected lifespan.

Hey, I really need help. I'm having problems with my laptop. It's a dell inspiron 7559 and was bought around January. Recently I have seen that the battery has no longer been as hot as it used to be when I first started using it. Along with the sleeve on the tip of the screen power adapter (below the part where the adapter lights up) has started to come off, exposing the wires. The battery has continually dropped down its percentage rate ever since I bought it, and it won't go back up. It is currently at 0% battery life and it says when you highlight over the battery icon ( plugged in, not charging). It also happens to show the BIO setup when I start the computer and shows that the batteries wattage and type cannot be determined. In the BIOS setup, the ac adapter type is unknown. The battery has not been through any harsh conditions along with the laptop. I have tried removing the battery, starting up the computer with the ac adapter (which is 130 watts), then adding the battery back, and ac adapter, then turning it on, but it had no effects. If I remove my ac adapter while my computer is on ,it instantly turns off. If someone can support me with this issue, it would be gladly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Laptop battery not charging, battery not identified, 0% battery life

It sounds likely the charge circuit on the mainboard is damaged.  Contact Dell to have the mainboard replaced under warranty.

Hi all,

Laptop is a 5 years old HP Pavilion DM4-2153ca.

Issue started a few months ago when laptop was shutting down at 63% battery, and when I plugged it it would charge until 9x% and then say "plugged in, not charging".
In the meantime I upgraded to Windows 10 and the issue wasn't solved.
I formatted and did a clean install of Windows 10 and still not solved.
HP advised I revert back to Windows 7 as this is the "original" OS for my somewhat old laptop.

So I just re-installed OEM Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 that came with the laptop, and the issue got worse, now it shuts down at 96%.

I also uninstalled and re-installed battery drivers, didn't work.
I tested the battery in the HP UEFI Support environment and it passed, so I can't calibrate it.

At this point I don't know what to do, and I don't think it's a battery related issue because it never fully discharges. The laptop just shuts down before! Help!!

A:Laptop shuts down at 96% battery and "Plugged in, not charging" issue

This is battery issue, nothing relates to windows &or battery drivers, if any.

If you leave the battery plugged in all the time, with the main power on.
Sooner or later, battery will not be able to charge properly, as you encountered now.

The percentage you see may not be real, hence it may force the laptop to shutdown without warning.
There is nothing you can do, unless either get a new battery, or use it as home with main power on.

Hello and peace on you..
I have a DELL Inspiron N5110 from early 2011
I was using the laptop correctly..The laptop was plugged in and the battery was charging..Then i removed the charger let the laptop on battery until suddenly the laptop shuts down without even telling me that the battery is low or even leaving some "emergency" charge on it (usually 7% or 5% i don't know)..I plugged it in to charge it again and open my leptop and i found out that the battery is not taking charge anymore!
I tried to see if the propblem is with the connector and tried to remove and put in again the charger and it ddid not work
i tried also to remove the battery and put it in again, it did not help
Now it is stuck on 2% of charge from 5 days and it's plugged in!
The laptop says that the battery is charging, but actually it is not charging and the charge level is the same from days
I looked up some solutions online like uninstalling ACPI microsof from Device manager and reboot the laptop..It did not work
"Jauge de batterie" which is an integrated software related to DELL, says that the battery health is good and that my battery is working properly
The laptop works fine with only the charger plugged in and battery out
PS: the laptop heats usually but i think it did not affect the battery at all since it was working fine and the charge took me about at minimum 30 min on high performance to be emptyed before this happens.
Please, i'm seeking for help
I hope you can ... Read more

A:Battery says: Charging, but it is not actually charging while plugged in and is stuck in 2% for 5 days !

First thing to check is wherther the sysetm recognizes the AC adapter - F2 at powerup to check that.
If it doesn't, try a new Dell OEM AC adapter - if that doesn't fix the issue, replace the DC jack board, and if that doesn't solve it, the mainboard.  Note:  you MUST use a Dell adapter - NOT a third party unit.
If the system DOES recognize the AC adapter, but won't charge the battery, chances are the battery is bad and will need to be replaced.
You cannot solve the issue without checking and, if necessary, replacing these parts.
