  1. Laptop battery will not charge even when plugged in


    I have a Lenovo laptop iPad five series 14 ARD05 81YM model. A couple nights ago I was using my laptop while it was plugged into the charger and suddenly it said the battery was going dead. Even though it was plugged in. I was in a mad panic because it was draining the battery very quickly. I looked up possible fixes for it and noticed several places said to uninstall The “Microsoft AC adapter” and the “Microsoft ACPI compliant control method battery” then restart pc and it will reload them. I did this and I tried to restart but now it says the battery is at 1% and will not turn on. Can you please help me with this? I don’t know who else to ask. Thank you

    :)

  2. 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).

    Laptop battery will not charge even when plugged in

    My Computer is Plugged in but not Charging

    My laptop computer is plugged in but not charging. The power supply will maintain the charge level (%), but not add to it. Removing and reinserting the battery allows the power supply to add to the % charge to 100%.

    Steps performed:

    • Turning the computer off and restarting it returns the computer to the Plugged in, Not Charging state.
    • Removing the battery again allows one complete charge, after which the laptop would no longer charge again.
    • I have used more than one power supply with the same condition.

    To resolve the issue, I remove the battery, obtain a complete charge, and maintain this charge by always keeping the power supply plugged in.

    What is the root of the problem?
