Hello, I bought a new laptop Lenovo last week but I have a problem.The laptop works fine except the battery will not charge.Windows shows me : "Battery plugged in, not charging"I tested several solutions but until now none of them work.Could you send me ideas?Thank youLaurentPs: sorry for my English!

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
The Lenovo Energy Management is probably limiting / protecting the battery from overcharging.
Can you try the following:
1. Apply this Plugged in not charging message fix (Windows 7 only)
2. In Windows 8, uninstall Lenovo Energy Management and test. If battery stays charging, reinstall Lenovo Energy Management and observe:
Lenovo Energy Management Lenovo Energy Management
Windows 7 32bit / 64bit Windows 8 32bit / 64bit
cagt26ww.exe em126.96.36.199.exe21.2MB 45.4MB
3. If you still get the same error, try to:
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.
Edit: added links
Let me know your findings.
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, I have read many people have similar issues for other models other than my Thinkpad x240 20AL but removing the battery won't solve my problem. It is plugged in, it says plugged in but battery is not charging (none of the two batteries this laptop has). I have gone to Driver Manager and uninstalled the 3 Microsoft drivers under battery section. After restarting or scanning for new hardware these drivers appear again and the problem is not solved. I have restarted de computer. Problem not solved I have removed the batter and put it back. Problem not solved. After one night, I switched on the laptop and one of the battery has charged. Right now it says plugged in, charging and it shows already 100% although it keeps charging. The other battery still shows 98% not charging.. I believe this must be a software issue, some power management that prevents the laptop from charging the battery. But where is that software and how to configure it or remove it? I have looked for Lenovo Power Management and similar and it is not installed on my laptop. Anybody knows what I am talking about?
I have a very similar problem, how was yours fixed in the end?Someone please help, very frustrating!3 more replies
For a few months now, at some point my battery would indicate nn% (plugged in, not charging) and would maintain that charge as long as it was plugged in. Running on the battery, the charge would eventually diminish and in order to get the battery to charge again, I have gone through to process of uninstalling the ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery in Device Manager. Usually within 24 hours, things would revert back to plugged in, not charging. However, that is no longer remedying the problem. (When this was an issue the indicator light next to where the AC Adaptor plugs in would flash blue. Also, I upgraded from Win 8.1 to 10 a few weeks ago, but this issue has been occurring for a few months now). Now the battery reads 2% (plugged in, not charging) and when I use the HP Support Assistant to check the battery, I get the message ?HP Battery Check was unable to access the battery?. I have performed a hard reset, reset the BIOS, and updated the BIOS, all to no avail. If I unplug the adaptor, the computer shuts off. Any suggestions for additional fixes? I have seen one additional suggestion to do a system recovery but I have not yet made a recovery disk for win 10 (I do have one for the win 8.1), and would it make any difference anyway since the plugged in, not charging problem was occurring under win 8.1?More replies

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
Something like that.
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)

My battery is at 0% and says "plugged in not charging". Whenever I unplug my charger my computer dies so all the solutions that require me to take out my battery dont work. How can I fix this problem so i can use my computer when it is unplugged. Thanks!
Hi,there coudl be several reason for this... such as.1) if the battery is charged for around 90%(depends on model to model it may be 80% also) its normal to avoid anty unwanted charge cycle. this will help improve battery life.2) if the machine is not charging because to used in too hot ambient temprature or its heating up for some reason. option is to let the machine cool down and it will start charging. this is again technology limitation and safety measure.3) if above are not true: Try this:.Disconnect ACShutdownRemove batteryConnect ACStartupOpen Device ManagerClick the plus (+) sign next to Batteries category, right-click All of the "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" listings, and select Uninstall In the "Confirm Device Uninstall" dialog box, click OK. (it?s ok if you only have 1 of these listings).Click the plus (+) sign next to System Devices.Right-click the ?ACPI Fixed Features Button" and select Uninstall.

Hello! I have an ACER Aspire M laptop which is about 3 years old. The battery cannot be taken off, it's under the back cover. I have Windows 10, 64 bit. I didn't use my laptop for a few months and once I turned it on again, I got the message that the bettery is not charging. So I cannot unplug my laptop. Battery seemed to work fine before.. - I read that updating BIOS could solve the problem, but I can't do it because the system requires battery to be at at least 30%. - I can't take off the battery, so the solution with holding power button down doesn't work as well.- I also can't unplug my laptop to reinstall the drivers. Someone help please!More replies

My Laptop name : Hp envy 15t-j100 select editionProduct number:F0D26AV And I purchased this laptop from US and I am using this in India.I contacted the customer care of India and they says that this model is not available in India.So they cannot do about it.

The last 2 days I have had this problem with a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop, and have been using it with the power adapter/charger plugged in. Yet this morning I have started up the laptop with the power plugged in, and now it shows that the battery is plugged in & charging !!
Checking the battery yesterday it showed " battery life- moderate." As everything works fine with the power adapter plugged in, I assume that the adapter is fine.
If the problem arises again, can I use a power adapter from a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop which runs Windows 7 ? This Inspiron 1545 laptop runs Windows Vista.
Hopefully someone can advise re the use of the 630M adapter with the 1545. Will it be safe ? I do not want to cause damage to the Vista machine.
I apologize in advance if this has already been addressed here, I do not see a way to search this forum.
I have an Inspiron 15, 5000 series laptop running Windows 10. It worked using AC power, but not battery. The toolbar battery icon message says "0% available (plugged in, not charging). I have tried several variations of online recommendations to remove the battery and either disable, reinstall, or uninstall drivers. All were unsuccessful.
I did notice that if I remove the battery, the battery icon says "no battery detected". When I plug it back in, the text changes for about 1 minute to "0% (plugged in, charging), and the icon shows charging, but then it reverts to the 'normal' "not charging" status.
Based on this info, how do i determine if this is a hardware problem requiring a new battery, if it is a software problem other then the driver problem that tried earlier, or some other charger problem?
The battery indicator says "0% available (plugged in, not charging)" I have run the battery diagnostic and it says that battery is fine. I have run the ac adaptor diagnostic and it says that is fine as well. I have updated the bios. I have uninstalled "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" and rebooted. I have also uninstalled it and updated immediately. The battery is non-removable. Anything else I can try?More replies
Hello,Hope you are doing well. My battery icon says '2% available (plugged in, not charging)'. I have done a battery check on Hp Support assistant and it says:The battery is reporting a failure and needs to be replaced as soon as possible. Based on the age of your PC and battery, it appears it is no longer covered by your HP Warranty. REOOW I'm not sure about replacing the batterry. Please inform me if there is anything easier and or cheaper to do.Thanks, YousifMore replies
I bought a new battery for my laptop because the original one had lost endurance, it would last only about 45 minutes, anyway. So I put the new battery in and the computer sometimes doesn't recognize it, sometimes it does but most of the time it says : Plugged in but not charging.
I'm not too sure what to do, I made sure to buy the exact same battery with the same model #, etc.
1. Shut Down the laptop.
2. Press the power button then tap the F2 key until a blue screen appears.
3.On the left sided menu arrow down to Battery Info.
What does it show ?

Just bought a new Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-791G-76Z8 a couple of days ago. I've kept the laptop plugged in but the battery level has been dropping by about 1% per day. The power charging light is always blue and it says "plugged in, not charging". I'm running Windows 10 and have installed the Power Management update from the Acer Care Center app. What's wrong and how do I fix it. Thanks

I did the followings but did not fix it :
Unplugged the machine
Removed the battery
Plugged everything back in ( except the battery ) and loaded the machine
Turned off the machine
Put the battery back in.
This is the 2nd time. Fisrt time I fixed that by performing the above steps. Not this time.
Google search suggests faulty adaptor, as well as contacting Acer while still in warranty.
After googling, I came across this suggestion :
Device Manager > expand Battery > Right click at Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery > uninstall > Action button > Scan for hardware changes
That did not solve the issue either.
Is there anything else I can do without calling Acer ?
Call Acer. You have a hardware problem.7 more replies
The title is the message I've been getting for about the past month and a half. I noticed my battery draining, even while plugged in, until it finally got to 0%. With the power adapter plugged in, the laptop still runs but I just recently had an experience where the laptop was suddenly cutting off, even while plugged in.I've done as much troubleshooting as possible, but I haven't been able to figure out the problem. I managed to switch the laptop over into power saver mode and it's been letting me use it without dying immediately on me. I have an internal battery, so the option to remove and power it on separately isn't an option for me.

Hi, I found a lot of answers on the topic but unfortunately none resolved it. So it's simple - the charger is not charging beyond 44% and recently it increased to 48%, and it says "not charging". Battery health is good, I updated the bios, reinstalled both battery drivers multiple times in multiple ways. I am using windows 10, desktop and longevity options for battery are disabled. Only thing I didn't try yet is turning off computer, battery out for 2-3h, etc. due to not having clear steps on how to perform it + would like to know if it's needed.
Appreciate the help! Thanks
Hello, I only bought this laptop a few weeks ago and it does not seem to charge propery (or so it says). As the title suggests when plugged in and I hover over the batter it says "plugged in not charging" It has been like this for a couple weeks now and still has not gone flat as long as it is plugged in, so some sort of charging must be taking place right? Just want to know if I can fix this just so I am able to see when it's charging and use it without leaving it plugged in. Currently I keep it plugged in at all times in fear of it dying. Thanks for any help in advance.More replies

My notebook is 3 years old, but the battery has charged with no problem until yesterday. Now it suddenly won't charge; it says "25% - plugged in, not charging." I ran the battery test, result: "weak (30) The battery is functioning correctly, but due to normal aging of the battery, the battery life between charges is now significantly shorter than when it was new." So it seems the battery isn't defective, even though it's getting old. I hesitate to run the battery calibration because appaently that will fully discharge the battery, and maybe it will never re-charge. I upgraded to Win10 a few days before this happened; don't know whether that might have contributed to this problem. What's going on here and how can I fix it?

New computer with very minimal usage. Basically sat in the box for one year, now, error message states that battery is plugged in not charging. I've tried testing, and diagnostics reports "unknown." I've tried a few youtube fixes such as removing the battery drivers and allowing them to reinstall, and tried updating bios. There is no way that this battery should have died. Has there been a recall that anyone is aware of? Also, noticed that the case is cracked at the hinge on left side. I'm super careful and I don't even know how this could happen. This was not an inexpensive computer!!! Although this sat in box, the warranty is now expired. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!

I'm having this issue where the battery is not charging, and/or the laptop is not recognizing the battery properly. I will just outline the problem and what I have done. A) Received a brand new assumingly aftermarket replacement battery. 1 - It went through a charge cycle without much problem2 - It stopped charging randomly, to which by experimentation the fix was simply restarting the computer (and removing the battery while the computer was shut down, and replacing it before restarting). It would begin to charge again after.3 - Sometimes, on battery power, the monitor screen would simply turn illuminated black or flicker. During this time, all computer functions still worked and I was able to shut the computer down using my memory and the proper keystrokes. Starting it back up was the (temporary) cure, even without introducing AC Power. 4 - This continued regularly having to reset the computer and the battery to keep it charging. A few days later, while showing some nominal amount of charge (20%?) the computer just shut off instantaneously With this, I assumed there must be something wrong with the battery so I contacted the people who sent it and they agreed, although I was also asking if it could be anything other than the battery, because to me it didn't feel like the problem was the battery as, once I got the battery charged fully, it worked great as far as holding the charge. B) I received a second brand new b... Read more

I did some HP recommended updates including a bios update and now I am getting some issues with battery charging. I've not tied the upgrades to the battery issue so I would prefer to keep an open mind to it being something else. I'm now getting the message whenever I click on the battery icon that says "Battery plugged in but not charging" and it will not charge above 55-60%. I am also unable to get my HP Toolbox FX to work properly so that limits my choices to doing battery status checks. I switched charging cables and bought a new battery and the issue remains. HP support is lacking when it comes to the remedies offered. I looked through the forums for this and keep seeing the HP affiliated members continue to put out links to non-functioning or unrelated links. This is becoming a very time consuming issue that should have a fix and not get run around by HP support. I tried a system restore to a known point of no issues and I still am unable to get resolution on this problem. Does anyone know of a "real" fix for this issue once and for all?
Can we possibly know the full model number of the laptop? DV7s cover many years and many models with different hardware platforms.2 more replies
I recently received a HP Stream Notebook - 13-c055na (ENERGY STAR) from a freind and they told me that battery did not work and needed replacing. I began using the computer and everytime it started the computer came up saying: Primary (internal) battery 601 needs to be replaced since it is detecting the storge capacity to be low. So i got a new battery and its doing the exact same thing and will just shut off whenever the ac adapter is not plugged in. I have changed the power plan settings and this made no difference.

Yesterday, my computer stopped charging. It was fine the day before, but when I got up yesterday, I noticed I was losing juice. My battery icon says "battery plugged in, not charging." It doesn't charge when it's off, either. This computer has an internal battery that I cannot remove. I have already tried uninstalling Microsoft ACPI and that didn't help. I have looked at the pin inside the power adapter and it seems to be properly aligned, though it's so small it's hard to tell for sure. It does seem like the adapter isn't plugging in all the way beacuse it's a bit wiggly, but that could be because of the dumb placement of the battery port.Please help!

Hi, My battery is plugged in and is not charging (staying at 2%). I've tried many troubleshooting techniques but have not been able to resolve the problem.

HP Community,I am having an issue with the laptop battery. When it is plugged in, the battery does not charge. The start bar icon says "Plugged in, not charging". I just replaced the AC Adapter this week. I ran the startup diagnostic test and it said that there was a battery failure but when I run the HP Battery Check throug HP Support Assistant, it says the battery is functioning properly. 1) If I calibrate the battery, will this fix the issue? 2) Does the battery actually need replaced? Getting one diagnostic saying yes and another saying no is confusing and frustrating. 3) If calibration does not fix the issue, is there steps I can try to take to resolve the issue before buying a new battery? 4) If I do need to buy a new battery, can I get a product number for the battery I would need to purchase? I have been trying to find a listing with the battery type on it but I cannot find a list with HP Pavilion 13 360x listed. I looked here (http://store.hp.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ContentView?storeId=10151&eSpotName=BatteryFinder&cata...) and that includes looking at the list under the "Laptop Not Listed?" button. Thanks,A concerned HP user looking for some juice for my battery!More replies
I have similar issue. I have hp split x2 model 13-r010dx running Windows 8.1. The tablet portion is not taking a charge. When plugged into the tablet no light comes on. When I attach the tablet to the keyboard dock and plug the indicator light flashes white on back of keyboard. When I take the tablet off the dock and leave the dock plugged in the indicator light is white and doesn't flash. Seems like tablet battery is drained I had it off the charger overnight and won't take a charge. My keyboard battery is charged so but the computer won't turn on at all.

I have an Acer Aspire V5-473P laptop. Originally it was Windows 8 then upgraded to Windows 10. Couple of days ago the hard-drive suddenly died. We put in another hard drive and did a clean installation of windows 10. Now it works fine, except that battery shows as plugged in, not charging. So it can only run with adapter and can't use battery at all. We tried reset the battery (use the reset battery pinhole and disconnect/reconnect battery). Also tried delete the battery's driver. After reboot the driver installed by itself. But neither of these methods work. Any suggestion on how to fix it? Thanks!More replies
I don't know If I'm posting to the right thread, but whatever. As you can tell by the subject, my laptop is plugged in to a wall outlet, but it isn't charging, nor is the battery depleting when I use it. This problem only appeared some days ago. Below is a list of everything I have tried doing to fix this problem, as well as other information. The wall outlet works fine, I plugged my phone into it and it started charging. The computer doesn't recharge to a certain percentage, it just sustains the battery percentage it has while it's plugged in. Uninstalling and Reinstalling Micorsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery and Microsoft AC Adapter via the Device Manager did nothing, nor did installing new drivers for them. Resetting the BIOS didn't help. I checked to see if the battery was secure, so I removed it and made sure it was completely plugged in to the computer. It didn't help. Shutting down the computer, unplugging everything, and holding down the power button for 40 seconds didn't work. I can't and have never been able to turn on the computer without the battery, even if it's plugged in. The LED next to the charging port does blink three times when I try to turn on the computer without the battery while its plugged in, and it doesn't blink when it isn't plugged in, so it can't be a problem with the cord. I checked if the physical connection between the charging port and the rest of the computer was secure, and it is... Read moreMore replies
Basically, my laptop's probably about 3 years old now, and as expected, the battery that came with the laptop reduced itself to a state of no charging. As a result, I bought myself a new battery because the laptop itself works perfectly fine. The first day I got the battery, I had the issue of the battery being not detected, but I fixed it through going into Device Manager, uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery, and then scanning for hardware changes, and it worked an absolute dream, percentage and time remaining were spot on. I then didn't use the laptop for about a month, and when I turned it on, it will either give me "Plugged in and not charging" or "No battery is detected" and there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to which one appears... I thought it might just be a simple fix again my doing the uninstalling and scanning for changes, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything at all! It's an Advent 9915W that I'm running, with all the specs below.

What is the charge level? If it is more than 60%, then the battery will start charging when battery level goes below 60%. This would be valid if the battery setting has been set to maximum lifespan in energy management. If optimize for runtime had been selected and it still doesnt charge or in the eatlier option below 60% it is not charging, then you would have to take laptop to support.

My thinkpad x1 sometimes does not charge at all. It shuts down if I remove the power cable. Normally it does this every two or three charges, but now is stuck at 14% and it will not charge. I have tried everything, reinstall, install drivers. Reseted from the back. Nothing! If I remove the power, it will shut down. I cannot also access the support site for any drivers, it redirects me to my country and of course it does not have anything for a population of 3 milion (maybe 100 Lenovos for the total population). Those supporters at Thinkpad must be very stupid to even think about using the location for redirection.More replies

As per the thread title, the battery is recognised as being present, but is not charging, and when the power is disconnected, will not run on battery power. I have come to the conclusion that it is most likely a hardware issue, see below.
Comptuer is the one in my 'System Specs', just on 2 years old, out of warranty period.
I have checked the battery connections and visually all is in order.
I have searched, and applied what appears to be a common fix for this, but did not change the situation;
>In Device Manager, Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall >Shutdown
It runs normally using the power cord, so I am thinking that it is an issue with either the battery or something more sinister, within the computer/motherboard, as it was fine one moment, but not the next.
Prior to this the battery would last approx. 2 hours, and HW moniter showed it had around 30% wear, now shows 56% wear.
I have never had a battery suddenly die like this, but am thinking it is a distinct possiblity given the symptoms. Should I bite the bullet and order a new battery and hope that this is the fix? or is there likely a solution I have not come across?
Thanks in advance, Tim.
Buying a new battery is an expensive way to test but it may be the only way unless you have a multi tester and can test your battery. Two hours seems like a very short time for a laptop to run on a full charge unless you are playing videos constantly.
I have had this issue with a MacBook Pro and it turned out to be a 4 pin connector under the keyboard that was faulty.
Over the last week, my alienware M11x laptop has refused to charge. Each time, the issue would resolve itself after a few minutes, but the problem has persisted for several hours now and my computer is now at 9% battery.
I have already tried removing, unplugging and and moving the AC adapter, none of which proved fruitful. I have also tried physically the battery (a pain, considering it is screwed in and behind the bottom panel), booting the computer without the battery, uninstalling Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery, replacing the original battery and booting once again, which accomplished nothing.
This computer was very expensive (one might say overpriced), and I am not willing or able to buy any expensive parts at the moment. Is there any way to fix this problem from where I'm standing?
How old is this system? If it is under 3 years I would contact Dell. There are several complaints about Alienware batteries if you google it.2 more replies

Over the last two months my laptop's ability to charge it's battery has degraded.
It went from being able to charge a battery fully (100%), to not being able to charge beyond 98%, then 66%, then 30%, and now finally it says "0% availability (plugged in, charging)", but it never increases in charge.
Thus the laptop works when plugged into the charger, but will not switch on when attached only to the battery.
I have restarted the computer multiple times - first shutting the machine down, then unplugging it, removing the battery, holding the start button down for one minute, then reattaching the battery, plugging the charger back in and restarting the machine.
I have installed updates for "Batteries" (ie. Microsoft AC Adapter, Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery, and Microsoft Composite Battery) in Device Manager.
I have also uninstalled the Microsoft ACPI Complaint Control Method Battery and shutdown and restarted the laptop repeatedly.
Just now I called Toshiba support and updated BIOS from 1.50 to 1.70, then restarted the computer, but again the battery will not charge.
I bought a new battery which showed that it was fully charged when when I attached it to my laptop, but when the charge depleted to 0%, I got the same message as with the other battery: "0% availability (plugged in, charging)".
I am really stumped. How else can I attempt to increase the battery charging capability of my laptop?
In my opinion old battery was definitely defective.
Is your new battery original Toshiba battery or some third part product?
When you start notebook without battery and put it in place when Windows is loaded does the problem persists?
I have a Samsung NP530uc3 that seems to have a dead battery. The machine is about 2 years old or thereabouts. Just want to see if anybody has any tips for me before directly trying to replace the battery.
Basically it was working fine and then suddenly I got a message saying "The battery is not operating under normal condition. Replacing the battery pack is highly recommended. If the adapter is removed in current state. You may lose your data. Please save your data immediately. The battery pack is consumerable device. This pack is not working correctly or life is ended. Please stop using the battery or replace it for your safety."
Now, naturally that error seem pretty damning. However I had battery bar installed, and also downloaded batteryinfo tool, and it indicates that the battery wear level is only 60.7%, and further, the 'rate of charge' under battery bar indicates 0mw - perhaps leading me to think it is a problem with the charger itself?
I did some searching and a few suggested solutions were: unplug and clean everything, which I did to no avail. I also uninstalled the batteries under 'device manager -? batteries' and scanned for new devices however this did not solve the problem. Windows itself doesn't give the 'considering replacing your battery' warning either, but just says 'plugged in, not charging' (stuck at 33%). If I unplug the power cord, the machine dies completely. And I can't start it without the cable in either. The batter... Read more
well if it runs with the charger plugged in and dies when unplugged I think it would be the battery causing the issue, seems to be a common issue for all laptops.
Since a few days, I am having a problem with the battery of my notebook. I have my notebook plugged in, but it won't charge. When pointing the battery icon in the system tray, it says: 10% available, plugged in, not charging.
It started of a few weeks ago when the notifications for low battery stopped appearing (where it normally did so at 14% and 9%). This was not a major issue for me, however I looked around at the forums and I couldn't fix it with the advice here. This also goes for this newer issue. I tried uninstalling the drivers for the battery, removing the battery from my laptop, restarting Windows and reinstalling the battery, in different orders, none of which do the job.
There's no damage to the battery.
When I remove it from the laptop, I can work using the power cord.
I did a battery check with the HP support assistance, and it says I need to purchase a new battery. But I can't really accept that: it can't be that it stops working so suddenly. The battery had an outstandinlgy good lifetime up until a few days ago. I don't want to pay for something that still has a lot of potential to be functioning well.
My serial number is [Moderator edited Serial Number].
My product number is E8R31E#ABH.

Hi @Lewistrick Thank you for your query. I grasp that until a few days ago your battery was working well but now it will not charge. You followed some suggestion in the forum but they did not help.

I'm having an extremely similar situation--in a T440p (which I've used for >a year so far), a day or two ago it simply stopped charging when plugged in (in windows 10 it said "plugged in, not charging"); I tried all the standard fixes but eventually because I had to use the battery, it went down to 0% and is now showing the issues that TenkiGu is describing. Edit:To provide more information on my situation:I do not know for sure when I first started having issues, but my computer has logs of the battery charge and it shows it getting fully charged; I believe I then took it out and ran it on battery for a bit, plugged it in again, and the battery never started charging; it just sat at ~80%. Since then I've run the battery down the rest of the way between trying to get it to work and because I needed to use the computer on battery power for a couple of hours. I never did anything particularly odd before it started having issues (eg, I didn't happen to update drivers and then suddenly have it stop working).The battery itself seemed to be fine (it did last for ~4 hours), but when plugged in it simply didn't charge, even when the computer was shut down fully (which is the really odd part--if it were a driver issue I would've expected it to charge when shut down). I tried doing all the various solutions you find suggested online and in various forums. Now that the battery is fully drained, it simply thinks it is a bad battery (and it still won't charge when fully shut down)... Read more8 more replies
I seem to be having an intermittent "Not Charging" issue on my Lenovo Yoga 900.
It usually happens when it's fully charged and I unplug it for a few minutes and then plug it back in. If I let it drop below 93-95% it will usually say "Plugged in, charging" again.
Is this some sort of glitch, or a feature? I tried looking to see if I had the "conservation" setting on, and I do not.
I have a few days to take it back to the store if I need to. I'd really rather not send it in because we have problems with couriers dropping off packages that end up getting stolen because we live in an apartment with multiple locked doors, so they usually pitch it beside the door and run off and then someone else takes off with our stuff. Had it happen a couple of times with Amazon orders. (grr)
Thanks to anyone who can answer this!
Moderator comment: Model added to subject for clarity.
Good day and welcome to the community.This is my experience with my Yoga 900 and Yoga 900S. This way the system isn't trying to constantly top off 1 or 2%, which is not good for the battery. By contrast, Conservation Mode will charge to ~60% and then stop. That has some benefits, also. Personally, I'm not using Conservation Mode, and so far I've not seen any negative effects on my batteries.
Hoipe this helps.Regards.
Have an R61. My battery isn't one of the affected in the battery tips sticky. I upgraded to Windows 7 a few weeks ago from Vista, and upgraded my bios at the same time. I couldn't get audio to work on the laptop, so haven't used it until I fixed audio today. Since I hadn't used my laptop since I just noticed, but the battery is at 0% and I have the plugged in not charging error. I doubt this is a hardware issue since it happened right after a Windows 7 and bios upgrade. Any idea what I should do?

Hi, sorry for my bad english, I speak french.
My problem is:
One month ago, my battery was working good (2h+), and the day after, I decided to change room, so I unplugged the laptop (The battery was still in it) and... Everything shuts down
The laptop wasn't working anymore if it was unplugged, even if in windows, it was telling me the battery was 78% charged. The message was something like: 78% available, plugged in, not charging. After one month the message is now: 0% available, plugged in, not charging.
Even if I use linux, linux on a flash drive, windows 7, windows 8, or simply chilling in the bios, if I unplug it, it shuts down.
That might be a hardware problem, but why would my battery die "instantly", it was working really well one day ago?? I could replace it, but how can I know if the problem is the battery, or the connector that are on my laptop?
If I'm not clear, just tell me what you want to know.

I'm from the US but am currently studying in the UK. I purchased a power adapter and had been using it to charge my laptop for about a week before I noticed a few days ago that it was no longer charging, but rather had the message "plugged in, not charging". I did a battery check through HP Support Assistant, which determined that the laptop's battery has to be replaced. I've only had this computer for a little over a year, so I'm not sure if I've been using a faulty adapter or what to have caused the battery to need replacement. Is there a different fix known for my predicament? If not, what're the steps in obtaining a new battery with an expired warranty, and will the same thing just happen given that I'll be in the UK for another few months and need to be using an adapter?

We cannot currently use the laptop without it being plugged in, as it is showing "plugged in, battery not charging, 0%".We have tried other charging cables. No luck. We have tried unplugging it then holding down the power key to drain then restarting. No luck. We have tried going to contol panel and removing the ACPI compliant battery control and restarting. No luck. We are at wits end. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Okay, so my keyboard dock works fine. I restarted it once (paperclip method) after dying on me, but afterwards nothing was really wrong with it. Now, the tablet's battery is acting funny. At first, I thought it was just my keyboard dock not charging my tablet, so I detatched the keyboard, and the tablet completely shut off. I plugged the AC adapter into the tablet, and it came back to life, but it would not charge at all. The keyboard dock would be at 100%, but the tablet itself would only be at 8%. I have installed the Lenovo Dependency Package thing and the firmware update, but it didn't change anything. Now, even though it says (plugged in, charging) on my tablet, it's not really charging. So, whenever I unplug the tablet or detatch the tablet from the keyboard dock, the system completely turns off because it's only at 8%. Please help me! Thank you! EDIT: Okay, so I unplugged the AC adapter while the keyboard dock was on and then Battery #1, the tablet battery, drained down to 0%, and its status is now Plugged in, not charging, while Battery #2 is plugged in, charging. I also got a pop up notification saying there's an error in battery #1, see replacement options. I clicked it, but it was a dead browser link.Also, when I go to the Support app, it says under messages that my battery is not valid... but I don't know how that happened. I've only had my Helix for about 2 months now.
Welcome to the forum. First, have you already updated to latest BIOS and installed this dock firmware update?
Also, could you check the battery health setting as per this tip?
I also assume you read this thread...
I don't know how to fix this one but if i unplug the power the laptop turns off automatically and it's not an OS error i think because i have Windows XP dual booted and that say's the same thing anyone please help.
how old is the laptop? seems the battery is dead, does it start up if you have the battery out and plugged in? what model of laptop? EDIT: is it the one in your specs?9 more replies
A few days ago, I upgraded my HP Pavillion from Windows 8 to Windows 10. After the download, my laptop was entirely dead so I charged it. My laptop worked completely fine before the download. The next day, I noticed my laptop wont charge. The status of the battery says ?plugged in, not charging?. I shut down my computer and restarted it with the same result. I then searched the HP forums and uninstalled the driver and again, restarted my computer. This didn?t work either. I tried different wall sockets and even attempted to take out the battery but the back cover of my laptop wont come off. I called HP Support and the gentleman on the line was extremely rude to me. I couldn?t understand his thick accent and I had a hard time understanding my case number, as I am dyslexic, and he seemed to get irritated when I asked him to speak slower. He spoke very slowly and told me that I was stupid. Frustrated, I hung up. My problem is still not solved and I am confined to the wall and I cant unplug my laptop without it shutting down on me. Please Help!More replies

So I've had problems with my battery charging. At first it was the AC adapter, I got a new one. Then my battery wasn't holding a charge, so I got a new battery. Now my new battery still isn't charging. It says "plugged in, charging", but won't go above 17% no matter how long it charges. I'm not good with computers, what do I do now?More replies
