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.

Answer:how to resolve plugged in, not charging? probook 4520s

Are you using the origial power adapter that arrived with your notebook? Follow the instructions in this HP document to troubleshoot the power adapter. Have you performed the battery test diagnostic to see if the battery is still good? Are you able to remove the battery, plug in the power adapter and boot into your Windows operating system? Is your notebook still within its standard warranty? (Most ProBooks come with a 3 year standard limited warranty)

I have a Thinkpad X1 Carbon (Gen3) Model 20BS touchscreen  running Windows 7 64 bit. The battery is not charging -- it's in a perpetual state of "plugged in not charging"  and even when plugged in, it?s losing appr 1 percent per day (down to 31%). This has happened a few times over the past 3-4 months since I got the machine, but I've managed to find things that "fixed" it (at least temporarily): - Resetting the power gauge worked once - Changing the custom battery charge threshold worked a few times - Plugging in the power cord at different stages of reboot seemed to fix it once (although not sure why / how) Based on previous thread posts, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Power Manager and then tried to run Battery Gauge Reset, but to no avail. And the reset only appears to run for about 30 sec before the system tray icon switches back to normal. Thanks in advance. Karl

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

Answer: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.

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 recently had my Qosmio F55-Q502 repaired by Toshiba.
Two issues were addressed and one is fixed.

However, the second was attempted to be resolved unsuccessfully.

When I attempt to play multi-media games such as Call of Duty IV, even if the system is fully charged, within minutes the system will start to blink the "backlights" and then when I see the charging icon, it says "Plugged in, Not Charging."

This really concerns me as I have read online many similar issues, but none of the solutions seems to work.
To have to restart the machine everytime this happens and your in the middle of a game, really stinks!
I even had it happening with SimCity4 which is an ancient game.

Any good suggestions on this?
They did replace the battery when it was sent in which seems to be what most people say needs to be done.

Answer:Qosmio F55-Q502 - charging icon says: Plugged in, Not Charging

Hello

If your Qosmio notebook was in repair I think you should not discuss about any issue on forums but make a pressure on service and clarify every single problem with your notebook.
Please do this because the warranty is still valid and now is the time to clarify everything.

I am not hardware specialist but it sound to me as some power supply electronic issue but I cannot say for sure. Talk with service. Try to clarify this with them. Be nice, be cool and everything will be ok.

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.

Hi Guys, I have had to change my battery, got a brand new DELL battery but I can't get it to charge...I'm running Windows 10 PRO. I have tried the fixes listed above but unfortunately NONE has solved my problem. Any suggestions?

Answer:XPS 12 9Q23 Power Charging Disabled / Plugged in, NOT CHARGING

Hi DAEMONROD.
Where have you purchased the battery from? Does the old battery charge fine when plugged in?
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 another power adapter and check. If the adapter fits in loose, then the dc port needs to be replaced. You would need this part.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

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!
 

Answer: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,
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!

hi kanyewest,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try the following:
1. While having the battery and AC adapter plugged-in, boot into the BIOS (by pressing F2) and unplug the AC adapter until the system shuts off (this is to compete the discharge the battery).
 
2. Once the machine shuts down, remove and reinsert the battery and plugin the AC adapter then let the battery charge for about 2hrs while the machine is off and observe the battery lifght indicator. After 2hrs, power up the machine and observe the battery percentage.
     - Link to picture
 
If the battery is stucked at 0%, I recommend you contact lenovo and report your findings as the battery may need to be replaced.

Running Windows 7 x64.One of my end users' T410 would say that it was charging, but the battery percentage would never change unless you unplugged it. Then it would get lower, but plugging it in would not recharge the battery. We tried putting her HD in a working T410, but the problem carried over. I ended up giving her a new laptop, but I would like to fix the errant T410 if at all possible. Since the problem carried over with the HD in a working T410, I figured it was a software issue.  Reinstalled Windows. No good.Did a wipe of the HD (everything 0's). Reinstalled Windows. No Good.Booted from Linux liveCD. Charging worked, but once I booted into a fresh copy of Windows, it stopped charging. So it seems that the hardware is capable of charging the battery, but not on a fresh copy of Windows: only Linux. Is there anything else I could try to get it working on Windows? Thank you for your time and have a great day.

Answer:T410 says "battery plugged in, charging" but not actually charging

Hi Hang,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
As you are facing the improper charging of battery , in that case you please need to perform the following steps and check  if the issue gets resolved.
 

Open Lenovo Energy Management
Click on the bottom gear icon between i and ?.
Under Battery Health, Click on Start for Battery Gauge Reset.
That should refresh the gauge and let the system finish through the cycle.

 
I hope the above information helps.

Shashi

Hi Mistwild82,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with battery plugged in charging in your Lenovo Y50-70 laptop.
 
 Please try to perform the gauge reset, under power manager select maintenance guide and select gauge reset and check for the issue.
 
Also try to uninstall the Microsoft ACPI driver, uninstall the drivers under ACPI and restart the system and check for the issue.
 
Also shut down the system and try to charge the system for 1 or 2 hours and check if the charging percentage has increased. If the charging percentage has increased in Linux then it?s a issue with operating system please reinstall the operating system and check for the issue.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

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

So I unboxed my Ideapad Y500 yesterday and it's working wonderfully...that is, everything except my battery. When it was running low at 10% battery life last night I decided to plug in the AC adapter, which, as is normal, caused the battery icon in the corner to read "10% available (plugged in, charging)". However, what's not normal is that when I turned the laptop off and left it to charge overnight, the battery indicator light at the front of the system was still orange/red, occasionally flashing. I turned on my system again to find that my battery life hadn't budged at all despite recognizing that the adapter was plugged in and charging. I know other people have asked about something like this, though most of them say their battery icon reads "plugged in, not charging", so I'm not sure how to solve it. Any help would be appreciated!

Answer:Y500 "plugged in, charging"...but not actually charging?

HiNot sure it is happening but can you try this:remove battery and ac adapter; press and hold the power button for 30-40 seconds and then put it all together. Hope fully it should fix the problem.Regards

I have a Lenovo G580 laptop. I formatted my system and it was working good but slow before formatting. After formatting i got a status of 49% available(Plugged in, Not Charging). I shut down my system completely and removed the adaptar and found that the battery light is still glowing. I remove the battery and inserted. I still found the battery light is glowing. Then i started the system with adaptar checked status as (plugged in, charging) but the power percentage is not going up. I decided to drain the battery and then check, so i was working without the adaptar & the power drained normally in usual time.Then i plugged in to adaptar and Currently the status is "0% (Plugged in, Charging)"  but its not charging.   Please help.

Answer:G580 Plugged in, charging but not charging

hi Abhijeettiria,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Youre troubleshooting is correct and pointed out the battery.
   One last thing you could try is to run the Battery gauge reset via the Lenovo Energy Management software,
 If that still gave you the same problem I suggest having the battery Replaced via warranty claim or by purchasing a new battery.
 
Best regards
Solid Cruver

Hi all,I have a brand new i7 Yoga 13 running windows 8 from Best Buy. As soon as it booted up, I have not been able to charge my battery. As I hover over the icon, it says "Plugged in and Charging" but it does not include a percentage. I have had it plugged in overnight, and if I unplug the computer, it will die immediately. I have tried updating my BIOS, energy managment and setting it to "Maximum battery life," but nothing changes. Thoughts?Thanks

The battery charges perfectly in the other laptop but not in my laptop. When swithcing the batteries form the other pc it will not charge in my PC. bot both are fine in the other PC. I have removed the battery, checked power supply, un-installed and reinstalled the ACPI-complaint and adapter as suggested by most. I have done what ever solution i can have managed to find but neither have worked but the battery works  just fine when inserting into the other duplicate laptop and charges fine. I have tried to instal or upgrade BIOS settings etc. Nothing has worked for me! Please can someone point me in the correct direction!!!!!! Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Answer:G50-70 says "battery plugged in, charging" but not actually charging

Hello,
 
I have read a few other similar posts but none of their solutions worked on my laptop.  The battery percentage stays the same when plugged into the charger.  I first noticed the issue this morning when I powered the laptop on and the percentage was at 44% with the charger plugged in overnight, and it was at 44% when I plugged the charger in last night.  I only put the battery in the laptop a couple days during the week when I'm in school, otherwise I just leave it out and have it powered through the adapter.  The laptop is 7 months old.
 
I tried the Gauge Reset for 8 hours today and it wasn't doing anything so I cancelled it.   I have reinstalled the Energy Management software.  I have also tried shutting it down for 20 minutes and charging it at a different wall outlet.
 
What else can I do?
 
Thank you
 
 
Edit:
******Solution******
 
I just tried this from another post and it worked!  Battery is charging again.
 
a. turn off the computer and remove the battery and AC adapter.
b. press and hold the power button for 30 secs and reconnect the AC adapter
c. turn ON the computer and continuously tap F2 to boot into the BIOS, when you're in, press F9 to load defaults and press F10 to save and exit.
d. boot into Windows (while still having just the AC adapter plugged-in) then reinsert the battery.

I don't know where to post this...
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

Battery Charging Is Not Indicated in Vista or Charging LED Does Not Turn On HP Pavilion dv4-1117nr Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

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.

Answer: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.

Hello!

Bizarre problem for which I cannot find an answer.
I have an Asus Vevobook Laptop (Model: TP300LA) which states "plugged in, charging", however it's not charging. A cursory search of the web seems to reveal that this is not an uncommon problem and I've read many suggestions that it could be an issue with Windows 10 itself, but I'm not sure (laptop came with Windows 8.1 and, like many others, I went for the free upgrade to Windows 10).

So far I've tried uninstalling/re-installing the Microsoft ACPI items under device manager AND buying a new battery... but no luck.

It was mentioned on one site that it might be a problem with the BIOS, but I daren't update those (not that I even know how) for fear of bricking my laptop... although it's pretty useless now that it's tethered to the socket anyway.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It shows plugged in and charging and shows increasing charge but after un plugging it will dim the screen as if it's in power save and then die within 10-15 minutes. I reverted to before the update but that did not solve the problem. It happened all of a sudden so I assumed it was related to the update. Please help, love the machine but this makes it unusable.

Hi, all. I have had my Ideapad P400 for a few years now and i have never encountered a problem like this one. I just recently upgraded to Windows 10, which i actually like a lot, and all of a sudden, my battery says "plugged in, not charging." It will only charge up to 59% and it dies very quickly. I thought it was the battery, so i bought a replacement and installed it. It did the same exact thing. I've tried doing a battery reset in the energy management window, i have tried downgrading to windows 8 again, and i have tried looking up different firmware updates that could potentially fix the problem, but nothing. If anyone has any idea on how to fix this problem of mine, i greatly appreciate it. This is really my last shot before i have to take it in to be repaaired. Thanks! -Frank C. (P.S.

Answer:plugged in not charging

Hi NIRO222,
Is the adapter frayed? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter jack hold still and firm or does it fall off easily? The alternate adapters and batteries you have tried, are they Dell products certified for your system model?
If possible, update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1WweDdU
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status with and without the adapter connected. Also, wiggle the adapter jack while connected to the system and check if the adapter status changes at any point in BIOS.
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.
If the system is under warranty, write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details. If there is no warranty, then we can help with a paid service call if required.
Keep us updated.

I have an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC.  I am having an issue with the battery charging.  I get the "plugged in, not charging" scenario.  I have read all the posts and have tried all the suggestions such as uninstalling and reinstalling the battery drivers and so forth.  Here is my problem.My battery is new therefore, I know it is not that.  I perform a battery check and the system says the battery is good and that it is currently charging.  However, the battery icon on my lower right screen says it is plugged in, not charging.  The computer will completely drain the battery in about 30 minutes even though the computer is plugged in.  If I take the battery out of the laptop and pop it back in, the computer will start charging the battery again.  Once it reaches a 90% charge, it goes back to saying plugged in not charging again and drains the battery all over again.I don't understand the disconnect between the HP battery check saying it is charging and the icon saying it is not then draining my battery completely.  Any thoughts would be helpful.Thank you.

Hey guys I know it's irritating that this message keeps coming up but I am really at my wit's end. My battery charges up to 42% (I don't know why it's such a weird number) then stops charging with the message plugged in, not charging. My notebook is an ideapad U350 and I downloaded Power management version 6.0.2.4 but there was no advanced settings icon in it I tried other versions of power management but they did not have the icon Battery health under advanced settings. Can some kind soul please direct me to the correct version of Power management I can download to help me with this? My computer is on Windows 7 Home premium 32-bit.

Hi, I have a T61 and from yesterday my battery is not charging. I have a 9 cell battery and when I plug in the AC adapter, it shows "plugged in, not charging" status on the battery icon in the system tray. Could someone please help asap? Thanks,Animesh

Answer:Plugged in, not charging - PLEASE HELP

so if you unplug the ac does the battery discharge? Try to uninstall Thinkvantage power manager and then reinstall it.

Hello,
My 90W charger pin got damaged and was replaced with wrong connections. When plugged in my running Dell Inspiron 15R, the laptop crashed immediately but was able to turn on after removing charger and removing and reinstalling battery. Now used a working 65w charger from colleague with same laptop model and when plugged shows "Plugged In, Charging" but battery discharges to 0 percent and laptop crashes. Laptop doesnt even turn on now without battery when plugged in. At the moment using my colleagues laptop to charge my battery and use till battery discharges. Further, now date and time also gets reset to 1st Jan 2013 everytime battery removed.
What part is damaged. Can it be bypassed? I dont want to send it for 1 month to get repaired.
Please help.
Regards,
Tabby

Battery claims it is at 97% charge... I have not unplugged the AC Adapter at any point in the last couple of months while the system was on, so that battery SHOULD BE reading 100%.

I only just started keeping the battery plugged in while using the system on all AC Power for the sake of not worrying if the battery is going to explode just sitting on the desk, permanently lose charge capacity, or something else. My mom's battery has been plugged in while she uses the AC for the last year without this issue... that said, the last time we had this problem, with a Dell 1525, the MB fried out taking all the fans, the AC adapter AND the battery out of commission.

What do I need to check, or run, to figure out what the heck is going on here? I don't want to do anything until I'm sure whatever it is won't cause any further, more serious problems. I'm out of the warranty... so need to be careful here.

Also, I did recently suffer a BSOD but suspect Silverlight from Netflix as the cause as that is what I was doing at the time of that incident (it crashed just before that BSOD), however now I've noticed this... I just don't know.

Thank you for the help. =(

Answer:Plugged in, not charging...

Batteries should be re-cycled (allowed to drain competely) every month or so, or the lose the capacity to fully charge suspect that is what is going on here.

Try to re-cycle per mfr's directions.

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?

Answer:plugged in, not charging

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, My HP Omen says plugged in, not charging. I have already tried to reset the computer, upgrade BIOS, and uninstall Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery. I tested power using HP PC Hardware Diagnostics and it said ok. I also tested HP battery check using HP support Assistant, it also said OK. I'm unable to remove the battery, so I'm kind of stuck. I'm also getting "Please connect a higher capacity Smart AC Adapter for full Performance", but I was getting that before and it still charged. There is white light next to AC Adapter when it's on and orange when it's off. The computer also seems to charge only when it's in sleep mode or fully shut down. I also got it to charge one time when the AC light flicker between orange and white when plugged in; however when I unplugged it I got back to plugged in and not charging. I'm also getting really low fps. Going from 200 fps to 10-20fps. I can make it go up to 40-60 when I unplug the computer and replug it, but I have to constantly unplug and replug whenever I play a new game. Help please. Thanks,Ben

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 running windows 7 RC and recently developed this problem a couple of nights ago. On and off before that I would get the message, unplugged the AC power, plug it back in and it would start charging again. It has now developed into a permanent problem. I have googled this issue and found everything I can find on how to fix it, but nothing seems to work. Others have tried replacing batteries, motherboards, power supplies and reloading OS's. What works for one person doesn't always work for another. Most solutions are just temporary band-aids to what seems to be a growing problem. Has this issue been addressed in the final release? I had been running windows XP for years and never had a problem; it has only been since installing Windows 7 that the problem began. If this is a driver issue inside of Windows is Microsoft planning on issuing an update to fix the issue or are they just banking on 7 fixing all the issues that Vista has? This is not a brand specific issue as far as PC's go, I am an IT professional and have spoken with many other IT folks about it and nobody has been able to get an answer out of Microsoft and the laptop companies (Dell, HP ect.) are milking more money out of users by telling them they need new batteries, power supplies and motherboards that at best are a temporary solution. This issue really needs to be addressed.

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

My T61 always says "plugged in, not charging."Some Google searching led me to a fix - in Device Manager, I mess with the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Battery Control Method heading.  Sometimes, I can just disable then enable it, and the battery starts charging.  Other times I have to uninstall it and scan for hardware changes, or remove the physical battery somewhere in the mix, or restart the computer, or a combination of these maneuvers.No problem, it's fixed, not a big deal.The real problem is that it will charge up about 3-5%, then go back to not charging.  I have to do this about 20 times to get a full charge.  Insanely annoying.  Occasionally, I can plug it in and it charges up like it should, but more often than not I have to go through this hassle. Other than this, the battery charges in a normal amount of time, and discharges in a normal amount of time.Lenovo Power Manager says nothing is wrong with the battery.  I tried the battery maintenence thing, no change.I've attempted to update drivers, re-install the power manager, no changes.My battery wasn't part of the recall.I have a T61, Win7 x64, T7300 2Ghz processor, 4GB RAM Does anyone have a permenant fix for this, or a cause at least?Thanks,-Matt

Answer:Plugged in, not charging

for a start, you could check the voltage at the ac adapter. you'll need a meter.

First, I have Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop 2 year old. Three days ago there was no electricity about 3 or 4 hours. Аfter a while came to power and the power is off for 5 or 10 min. During that time the laptop was turned on while the electricity is off, it was working on the battery not plug in.. After suddenly there was power and then ran out and then came electricity. It was a problem of electricity in my municipality. For many hours then when he came voltage electricity, i turn the laptop and the battery ac adapter was 22% available and say: plugged in, not charging. What is the reason why my battery will not charge? Now is plugged but now charging. Earlier when cable was plugged in, the battery was charging. What should i do to fix the problem?
Thanks.

Answer: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.
