This is a nightmare for all laptop users, and when it happens ,there are only a few options you have, one is either curse the day and keep on cursing or get to work and try to improve the situation.

In this post today I will be telling you how to solve the problem of your laptop which do not get charged even when you have plugged in the charger.

We will work from the start, from the most obvious and common reasons of the problem to the ultimate option of calling customer care. Sorry for that one, but if  you are not able to do that yourself then the only option you are left with is to contact the customer care.

If your laptop is still in the warranty period then I would recommend to claim and not try anything yourself as with one wrong step and your warranty goes void.



In an event when your battery is old and has been discharging rapidly despite of basic usage and it has happened for the first time,then it might be the time to buy another one. A faulty battery is found to be the most common cause of the problem of the charger being plugged in but the laptop not being charged

Next thing you need to check is the power cord after the charger box; this is the second most common reason of laptop not being charged even when  the charger is plugged in.laptop charger

It is the most common reason in old laptops that these laptops lack the cooling feature of today’s laptops. Maybe you are the one who prefer to use your portable computer on your bed or lounge chair, thus bringing about the cooling vents to be blocked and your framework overheated. Not a decent thought.

In an event where overheating is the reason, attempt to let your laptop ,computer to cool down for some time and check the air vents to verify they are clean and cleared from any blockages.


Head to Control Panel and Check the settings for the battery, display, and the sleep options to ensure everything looks in place. Here and there changing these settings will result in your machine to close down, or shuts down when the battery power rate achieves a certain level. In a few cases, restoring the settings to default may take care of the issue.

Device Drivers

For Windows clients, look in the Control Panel and open the Device Manager. Find the battery tab and overhaul drivers for a specification named Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery. In the wake of upgrading, reboot the machine and check whether the issue is determined. If not, erase the “Microsoft ACPI” and after that reboot the machine once again.

Over to you….

These were the most common reasons of the problem with the solution. In case, none of the above mentioned tricks work then I suggest, to contact your customer service representative as the problem might become deep and going deep on your own is not a good idea, that’s the reason we have professionals for the job.

If any of the above successfully worked for you then, don’t forget to share the post with your friends on your favourite social networks.
