    Battery Decreasing - Even when plugged in!


    Hello,

    I am using Win 10 Pro and facing an issue with the battery. It is lowering down even when I connect my charger. What can I do?

    P.S - Using the original Lenovo charger, the battery is also new but not of Lenovo.

    Edit-

    I removed the charging wire and then re-inserted it again, the battery was going up. But would like to know what is the issue behind this problem? This can occur again too.

    :)

  2. Battery Percentage decreasing when plugged in

    basically, it's possible to use a laptop without a battery, so im doing that because there's nothing dangerous on it, but while the PC is plugged in, the battery is decreasing, why?

  3. Plugged in but battery does not charge

    If the laptop works without the battery then charger is functioning correctly. Take a cloth with a bit of rubbing alcohol on it (or some on-the-go alcohol swabs), and clean the metal contacts that connect your battery to your laptop.

    Make sure to install all Windows important updates.

    Install latest versions of your laptop device drivers you can download the latest device drivers from the device manufacturer or from your laptop manufacturer website.


    Step 1

    1. Shutdown your laptop.

    2. Remove the battery.

    3. Connect the AC power adapter to your laptop.

    4. Power on the laptop

    5. Open the Device Manager by typing Devmgmt.msc into Start Menu or from Control Panel.

    6. Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (it’s ok if you only have 1).
