My battery is plugged in but not charging

Product Name: HP Pavilion Notebook
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Help my battery is plugged but not charging.

I used HP Support Assistant and it says the battery is fine.

I checked the software for the battery and it's up to date.

 

What else can I do? The laptop is just over a year old.

 

thank you!

Re: My battery is plugged in but not charging

You might want to take a look at this document: Battery Does not Power Notebook or Hold a Charge.

 

It suggests troubleshooting steps to determine if the problem is the battery, the power supply, or the system board.

You might find the answer to your battery/power issue as you work through the steps in that HP support article.

Thanks,

Re: My battery is plugged in but not charging

Thank you, that helped and now it's charging again!  Now this is the second time I've had this problem. Last time I updated the BIOS and that fixed it. 

 

Let's hope the battery stays good from now on.

Again, thank you very much for your fast response and help!
