My name is Garrett... Just bought a gaming computer, running Windows 10 on it. It states plugged in, not charging when I plug the charger into the laptop. I have no idea what to do or how to fix it. I got it yesterday (9/15/19). I haven't dropped it, misused it, or anything really. It just states that it isn't charging when plugged in. Can anyone help?
