Q: Battery Not Charging on Flex 3

Please help! I've had my Flex 3 for about 3 months and all of a sudden the battery will not charge even though it says, "Plugged in, charging." It's at 0%. Please tell me there's a fix for this.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Could anyone please advise a solution: my Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Windows 8) is suddenly showing "plugged in, not charging" message. It is completely impossible to use it if it is not plugged in, as soon as you unplug it just goes dead. I have already tried the uninstall Microsoft AC Adapter way and it didn't help. Has anyone else had this exact issue? Thank you!

A:plugged in, not charging - Lenovo Flex 2-14

Hey, have you tried this -
1) Shut down the laptop and unplug the power supply
2) Press the power button for 40 seconds
3) Reconnect and start the laptop
Have you tried doing the "Battery Guage Reset" functionality?

I am having a problem with my laptop computer. I figured out that my laptop, when being charged or using the Power Outlet, runs at 100% CPU at times, and slows me down when running and working on some open applications. At first I thought I had tons of spyware or even a virus, and even posted a Hijackthis file here. Nothing was found.
I figured out that my cpu runs at 100% when using the power outlet, or when my computer is chargnig. When I unplug the powercord and use the battery life, everything runs GREAT!!!!! my cpu drops to a normal 4-8% usage with multiple applications running. WEIRD huh? Can anyone relate to this ?? Is this and indication that my battery is going bad???? Can someone help me with this or suggest what is going on? I am running windows XP home edition, and have a compac presario 1500 series. Pent 4..

Hello,  I have a two year old Ideapad Flex 14 which is having some battery issues. Specifically, the battery light is flashing red, and when I plug in my laptop, the status says ?plugged in, not charging.? When plugged in, it stays at roughly the same battery level, though it has been gradually losing battery despite being plugged in over the last few days (this has been going on for five days or so now).  It is at 5% battery now, and I?m not sure what to do to make it charge. I?ve tried taking out the battery and putting it back multiple times, but am not really sure what else to try ? I?m out of the country until December, so I haven?t been able to find a repair place to get it fixed yet...  Any suggestions how to fix this?? Annie

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!

For some time have received the error message regarding under power smart adaptor with newer replacement HP adaptor matching original.  Battery icon lists % charge & "not charging".  Battery tests good in HP Support Assistant battery check.  Power adaptor will power my older Pavillion laptop but not  the Envy with or without battery installed.  Battery charging LED does not light.  Have tried re-calibration by deleting Microsoft devices in Device Manager.  Envy will operate with and without battery while using Dell power adaptor. Computer repair shop says Smart adaptor produces 0 voltage (even though it powers Pavillion) and I need a new battery (even though diagnostic test indicates good). Help!!!

I've had my HP Envy laptop for about 3 months, and yesterday I noticed that when it was plugged in it wasn't charging (the battery icon says "plugged in, not charging"). I turned it off overnight, plugged in, and this morning the battery was fully charged. It only seems to not charge when it is turned on. I have tried removing the battery, turning on, deleting the ACPI-compliant control method battery, turning off, and turning back on again (as advised in other forum responses), but with no joy. At first I thought it could either be a battery issue, but the fact it fully charged overnight whilst off would lead me to believe it's not, and is probably a software / settings issue. Any ideas please, I've run out of google search ideas!!

Hey @EnigmaDimirti, Welcome to the forums. I'm here to help. I would strongly suggest Testing and Calibrating the Battery. Should that not solve the issue, I would suggest calling in for support to see about replacing the battery, as it should not be displaying "no battery is pluged in" when you run a battery check. Please use the following and create a case for your issue and contact HP. If you live outside the US/Canada, please click the link below to get the contact information for your region. If this helps, please hit that Thumbs Up, and Accept as Solution. Cheers,TechSurge.

I am becoming more and more concerned about my laptop's battery each and every passing day. When I check the bottom right of my computer screen to check if my computer battery is completely charged, it says "0% available (plugged in, not charging)". I have had to buy two new batteries because of the same thing and they also read "0% available (plugged in, not charging)". When I unplug my laptop from the power source, it turns off automatically. I cannot even bother calling Dell to check this issue for me because I bought this computer off the street for $35.

My question in general is how do I get this problem fixed and how do I keep an eye on how my laptop computer charges correctly (or not)???

I have just replaced my CMOS/BIOS battery today, as , I have faced some critical problem regarding regular BIOS date/time reset after system shutdown. But I want to know how do i recognize, that my new batter is totally ok or functional.

Battery Meter gadget shows that "battery Not charging"
Is it a gadget problem?

Is there any method available so that I can track that my new installed CMOS battery in PC is working fine?

Please help me.

A:Battery Meter shows CMOS battery not charging

The battery you have replaced is solely there to maintain the clock and other BIOS settings (if you have changed them from their defaults). It will not prevent you from booting your system if it is dead/missing; all it means is that you will have to enter the BIOS each time and make the correct settings and time. This battery is not rechargeable.

Do you still have to enter the correct time, or is the BIOS maintaining this now you've changed the battery?

Client's relatively new Yoga 500 is exhibiting a weird problem in Windows 10 anniversary edition. The battery is currently at 47% but keeps flickering between charging and not charging. The icon changes every second, possibly faster. Tried swapping power supplies so it's not that. When first reported, the battery was at 40% but then got to 47% during a reboot. The battery on the Yoga 500 is internal so not possible to try swapping batteries. Any ideas or suggestions?

I can't believe that the battery would just stand for appr. 3 hrs after full load on my Flex 2-15 (< 2 yrs old) considering this environment:
- running W10
- HDD replaced by SSD
- shutdown / battery saving features enabled like shutoff screen, turn off HDD after 5 mins
- typically running only on 60% brightness
- AV-programm with small footprint ( just NOD32 AV)
- no background active apps except mail
- 99% just browsing and mailing ( once in a while some youtube videos or lifestream)
Any suggestions? Battery already semi-dead ? Or are there any improvement hints around?

Based on the hardware manual page 36 , battery is internal and is considered FRU (field replaceable unit). Removing it would require opening the base cover.

I have exactly the same problem. Works fine when plugged in, but absolutely useless on battery, due to this random "black screen". My screen too is backlit, but the only way I have found to "wake-up" the screen is to reboot the computer. My Flex 3 came from Costco, and I am planning to return it.

Hello,I bought 2 month ago a Flex 3-1570 laptop.Most of the time I use it with the AC adaptor connected. Only sometimes I need to use the battery.The battery is not detachable and there is no "Battery Conservation Mode" or "Lenovo Power Manager".In these conditions how can I maximize the battery life?What is better:Connect and disconnect the AC adaptor several times a day, to maintain a charge level between 40% and 60%.orKeep the battery always 100% charged ?I had an older Lenovo laptop with a detachable battery and it was a very nice thing. I attached the battery only when I travelled and I think this was the best option to save the battery.Thank you

Hi everyone. I recently purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 14 for school and general purposes. In general I really like it, but I have noticed that the battery life is not like the 9h (or was it 6h?) that were advertised. I am getting around 2,5-3,5h of battery life, while I'm doing some light tasks like surfing the web. I should also note that this is with power saving mode on. Have I gotten a bad battery or is this basically what I can expect with this product?  You can see the specs in this link:

A:Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 14, poor battery life?

I have the same problem. Probably lasts an hour on a full charge. Piece of crap laptop and Lenovo should recall this garbage. I wouldn't recommend any of their products.

My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop had a very good battery life(>6 hours), but today morning it showed an error message saying  "Battery has experienced permanent failure and needs to be replaced." I updated the BIOS from A3 to A10, but it didn't help! The PC starts only if its plugged in and the battery charge is constant at 82%. What should I do?

A:Battery not charging, message says "Battery has experienced permanent failure"

It's quite possible your battery did suffer a failure; the Lithium-Ion chemical reaction may (which produces electricity) have finally broken down.
First thing to try is to run Dell's diagnostics. When you first power it on, press F2 to run the ePSA Diagnostics & see if any failures occurred.
Have you tried powering the laptop on with the power cord and battery, then once it's loaded removing the power cord to see if it stays on?
Another thing to try: remove the power cord & battery from the laptop, then hold the power button down for about 10 seconds. Then reconnect the power cord, power it on, then reconnect the battery.
From here, once it's on, you can try removing the battery again to see if it stays powered on or leave the cord connected to see if the battery begins charging.

Hope this helps!

I just received my mini 10 yesterday and I thought all was well. HA! I only had 4GB of my 16GB formated but no big deal thanks to your forum I managed to fix that.

Has anyone had this problem? When the mini is on it shows that it is running off AC power and battery charging (1%). However this number never changes. It doesn't charge. I tried simple things like removing the battery and putting it back in but no luck. I think I'm just going to return this one and give up on the mini because I'm afraid of future issues. I am running on the factory installed Ubuntu. If anyone has any suggestions or fixes before I send this back I appreciate it.

A:battery not charging

Those stupid HP batteries are half the cost of the mini and they die easily.

Overheat is the usual killer!

Go to device manager and double click on (batteries)

find the battery and click it

then right click it and uninstall

Shutdown mini

Remove power adapter then battery

reinsert battery then adapter

Turn on mini

wait a few if the battery icon does not show in system tray then

right click computer goto properties

click on (Action)

click (scan for hardware changes)

it should then find the battery

see if its charginng, if not reboot

Good luck


BTW dont leave the mini plugged in and sitting ontop of blankets or pillows.

Hi, I need some help with my Laptop. For some reason, my charger works for another computer, but it won't work for mine. However, other chargers work for my laptop. It is a Dell Inspiron e1405, and Dell support refuses to give me help because it is out of warranty. Maybe someone can help me here.

If it was only one or the other, I'd say it was the power jack soldered to the system board where the power module plugs into. Does the connection feel the same whether you plug in yours or the other? ie. plug nice and tight?

Can anyone tell me for sure if the long running problem in WIN 10 with battery not charging has been fixed?If not, I won't touch the WIN 10 upgrade with a barge pole - free or otherwise.

A:WIN 10 & battery not charging

You must be hearing some odd rumors- I've had no problems with Windows 10 over the past six months, and especially nothing related to my battery. Here's the funny part: Windows 10 doesn't do anything to help charge your battery. So long as you have a working battery, a working battery port, a working cord, and a working outlet, your laptop battery should charge normally. The battery and hardware/BIOS will typically maintain itself; Your OS doesn't normally interfere.

Hi there @Rodgee,  Welcome to the HP Support Community where you can ask questions, find solutions and get help from others in the community! I wanted to reach out to you and help! I understand that your battery will not charge on your HP ENVY Notebook PC. You mentioned that you tried to uninstall and reinstall drivers and are not sure if it is an issue with the Battery of Windows Updates.  Please make sure that the AC adapter cable is not plugged into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source. It should be directly into a wall outlet.  There are a couple of documents that you can use to try and figure out where the issue is. The first one I would suggest is the Battery Does Not Power Notebook or Hold a Charge document. If your notebook computer battery will not hold a charge, you are best to follow the instructions in this document step by step to troubleshoot the battery and see if it needs to be replaced.  You can also use the Testing and Calibrating the Battery (Windows 8) document. This will help you to determine the condition of your battery.  Have you tried to use the HP Support Assistant to download drivers and updates? Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system that needs updating. Did this reply resolve your issue or answer your question? If yes, then please share the good news! Let others know this reply was helpful by clicking the Accept as Solution button. You can also show your appreciation by clicking the Thumbs Up. If you require further assistance, I would be more than happy to continue to help you. Please re-post with the results of the troubleshooting and include your Model Number (How Do I Find My Model Number or Product Number?). Thank you!Have a great day!

My laptop only works through AC power. The laptop works off of the battery if the battery is charged, but the laptop does not charge the battery. If the battery is plugged in and I plug in the charger the charging light does not come on and the laptop does not power on. On the other hand, when I turn on the laptop and then insert the battery the laptop shows that the battery is charging but the battery does not actually charge up. I thought this was due to a bad battery since I have had this laptop for a couple of years so I bought a new battery but I have the same exact problem.

A:Dv6 battery not charging

Hi amkazant,


Welcome to the HP Community! I understand your frustration with the battery issue. It could be hardware related with the battery connection on the laptop not reading the battery. It could also be software related. The Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery is basically the driver that communicates between the computer and the battery. There is a chance that it is corrupted causing it not to read the battery. Follow the steps below and let me know how it goes.


Step 1. Go to Device Manager
Step 2. Select Batteries
Step 3. Right click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed there
Step 4. Click Uninstall
Step 5. At the prompt put a check in the box to remove the current driver
Step 6. Shutdown the computer

Step 7: Remove the battery for minute and then put it back in

Step 8: Turn the computer back with the power cord as well.

When the computer comes back up it should automatically find the driver and detect the battery.

Step 9. Go to Device Manager
Step 10. Select Batteries
Step 11. Right click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed there
Step 12. Click "Search automatically for updated driver software"


Do the same thing with Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controller if it is still not reading the battery.


Thank you,

You mean 20% not charging. This is a "feature" of some laptops, like Sony's and you have to install special drivers to get it to override it. Unfortunately, I have yet to find which driver it is and know if it works in Windows 8 yet. The Sony driver system is screwed up, you have to install them in the right order, and there's no documentation on which ones are for what purpose.. it's just stupid.

Two possibilities - bad charger or bad battery. Hope for a bad charger, when is relatively cheap to replace. The cost of notebook batteries are outrageous. Also, see if there is a break in the charger wire by rotating the wire. If the light goes off and on, it's a break.

Pull the battery from the laptop and plug in the power supply. You can use the laptop without the battery.

Contact Dell and see what they say about the battery.

I could be wrong, but from what I've read - a complete discharge is not good on those types of batteries and the longer that a battery stays discharged, the more damage is done.

Hi Jermyn,
It could be that you will need to uninstall and reinstall the power management software which is located in device manager.
Try this:

Click Start and type device in the search field, then select Device Manager .
Expand the Batteries category.
Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall .
WARNING: Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver!!
On the Device Manager task bar, click Scan for hardware changes
Windows will scan your computer for hardware that doesn't have drivers installed, and will install the drivers needed to manage your battery's power. The notebook should now indicate that the battery is charging.

I hope this helps!

If the system is under warranty, call Dell for repair.If not, first try a new OEM Dell AC adapter.  If that doesn't get the system to recognize the adapter, replace the DC power jack next:
And if that doesn't do it, replace the mainboard.
Without a recognized AC adapter, the battery will not charge (though the system will run).

Welcome to Sevenforums,

You might want to fully drain the battery before, then plug it again on wire powered to let it charge 100%.

You can drain it faster if you're on a switchable graphics system by choosing the ATI Performance.

To evaluate to battery performance you can follow this tutorial:

Hi! I'm running windows 7 on an older HP laptop. Yesterday, my battery icon started saying "plugged in, not charging" I don't know if there is some system device or application to show why this happened. Is there something I can check out? Maybe some controller that says "charge laptop" or "do not charge laptop". Please help. I don't know where to look on my PC, and when the battery DOES run out I will be sunk!

I just went to one of your faq's and I remember now that I had changed my power option a day or so ago, to optimize (I had thought) my power usage. Now I'm kicking myself and so relieved.

I recently revived my old Dell Inspiron 1525. Installed a fresh copy of Win 7 and found out the battery wasn't charging, so I went and bought a new battery and discovered 'Plugged in, not charging'. So the question is what is wrong? I have uninstalled and reinstalled the ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery thingy ma bob in the device manager. Help? .s

Battery Not Charging Got a New battery still not charging tried testing the battery with hp support system it say battery is ok but its still not charging.

A:Battery Not Charging

Sometimes Windows says ¨battery no charge¨ but it?s a windows power state error, you could also try to update your BIOS first, also perform a Reset to your unit (remove adapter and battery then press and hold the power button for 30/60 seconds)

Tried to update my BIOS but there's no update for my windows 10. Tried to reset my unit by holding down the power button foe 30/60 seconds, but that didn't work. Also did a battery check on my old battery and my new battery with HP Support Assisant  and by reatarting and pressing the f2 button. It said that the battery is good. Then I Checked the power cord where it plugs into the computer and the pin inside the plug is in good shape but the battery's still not charging. With the old battery it charge when it got to under 10% then it would upto 10% and stop charging afther that.New battery had about 77% charde on it now it has about 74%. Computer will run with the buttery out but with the power adapter in

You can try to Press F2 button at the power up and run a Battery test.If the test passes it may mean that the Battery is OK. For a BIOS update, try to check the same for windows 8.1 and see if there is an update available.The OS would not matter as long as it is a BIOS update as these are made for all the supported OS versions.

A:charging a new battery

make sure your power adapter is plugged in tight and the power scheme in the System Tray of the computer when it is in Windows, says that it is not using battery but the Power Adapter. You might try plugging the power adapter into the wall socket directly instead of a surge protector. If that fails then your adapter is bad or the connector to the motherboard is.

From the past few months my laptop never charged to 100%. I tried many option on the internet, ex: uninstalling battery software from device manager and many others. Then, when nothing worked, I bought a new battery, first week it worked fine, but now, when my laptop shows that its fully charged, I remove the power cord and the battery percent drops to 60%, and its getting lesser and lesser day by day, its the exact same problem like the first one!! please help, I use my laptop frequently and I need it to work properly asap.

I am using a dell inspiron laptop on Windows 10OS. My battery is set up to charge to 65%. How to I change it to charge a 100%?
Relevancy 55.9%

Just started having problems with battery plugged in and not charging, battery charge holds 96% not sure if that is good or bad.
Was wondering if going to device manager and clicking on Or select uninstall ACPI and scan for hard ware changes if this would work.
Have not tried this method yet. And I have not tried unplugging and let battery drain yet see if that might help.
Not sure if anyone knows how to fix battery plugged in not charging issue here.
I have searched for forum bout this issue and found nothing.
I have windows 8 64 bit.
Any suggestions is worth the wait.
Thankyou for reading.
Have a good day.

A:Battery not charging

I had this problem once with my laptop, to fix the issue I looked around and found this method:
1: Plug in your laptop to a power source
2: Open Device Manager
3: Open the battery drop-down list and uninstall the ACPI Battery driver you talked about in your post
4: Remove your laptop's physical battery
5: After a few moments, put your battery back into your laptop
6: In Device Manager, check for hardware changes (Right click the battery drop-down list and click "Check for Hardware Changes") and the driver should reinstall
7: Your battery should then start to recharge
Unfortunately this is a temporary fix and the "Plugged in not charging" bug may continue to happen. Tell me what happens next and I hope it works for you!
