I have a HP 17-g121wm laptop for about a year and all of a sudden the battery won't charge. The charger is plugged in and the led lights are on. I've tried updating Bios, a hard reset, and still nothing has changed. Please help!!!

As I Understand the laptop is plugged into the adapter/charger but it doesn't charge or power on anymore,
Don't worry, though, as I have a few steps listed below that should help you resolve this concern:
Unplug the charge and use the laptop until the battery drains to 15%.
Turn off the laptop and turn it back on after 30mins.
Reinstalled Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery under device manager,
Restart the computer and the issue should be fixed.
Also, Go through them all and let me know what you have determined is causing the issue. The first document has the most relevant troubleshooting if your battery appears to be not charging.
