The icon will say that it's not plugged in when it is but it will still charge. It runs on the battery power plan but it is not draining the battery. I have tried unplugging and plugging in. I have tried applying pressure and shifting the plug in the laptop. Nothing works.

For Wndows Vista and Windows 7
First of all, shutdown the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter unplugged, remove the battery, and then hold down the Power button for a full minute.
Now, plug in the AC Adapter without the battery inserted, start the notebook, open windows Control Panel, open Device Manager, expand the entry for Batteries, right click on and the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery and select Uninstall - do not uninstall anything else here. When the uninstall is complete, shut the PC down, unplug the AC Adapter, re-insert the battery and then start the PC on just the battery. Windows will automatically reinstall the driver - leave Windows running for a few minutes. Shutdown the PC again. Now plug in the AC Adapter ( with the battery still inserted ) and start the notebook to see if this has helped the issue at all.

I tried this and it's working fine till now.
1. Go to Device Manager
2. Expand the batteries section
3. Right click Microsoft AC adapter
