Plugged in, not charging

Hi there

i need some help recently changed the battery as it was needed. Now since i got a new battery after couple of days of using I am getting the message 41%plugged in, not charging. Its funny though cause it can work for few minutes, says "plugged in, charging" then it stops and it will say "plugged in, not charging.

Check my Hp assistant for troubleshoot, checked the battery and it says OK.

Don't have any idea what to do.

Can you please help.

Thanks

Re: Plugged in, not charging

 

Hi!
I've come across this problem twice now on my HP. The first time running a battery check through the HP battery check told me my battery was faulty.

The second time was with my brand new battery. I tried all the tests including changing the ACPI settings etc but nothing worked.


How I fixed it was by changing the HP recommended settings:

1.  Click on battery icon on bottom right corner

2. Click on "More power options"

3. Click on "Change plan settings" for HP Recommended (recommended) which should be already selected

4.  Click on "Change advanced power settings"

5. Change the battery setting to High Performance. 

 

Immediately my battery started charging properly with (plugged in, charging) however if this doesn't work try fiddling around with the advanced settings as there are some which set a maximum charge.

 

If this doesn't work there are many YouTube tutorials that can help you through changing the ACPI settings etc. 


From what I've heard, there isn't a single fix for everyone and some things work for some people but not for others. 

Best of luck!

Re: Plugged in, not charging

Thanks Unicorn, that worked right away for me. 

 

I have previously tried the solutions which involves restarting numerous times and deleting bateery drivers but all of them did not solve the solution. I guess you were right about hit and trail method.

 

 

Thanks once again
