I have Windows 10 and my laptop is the HP Pavilion x360. My laptop has been having the issue where it's plugged in but not charging for several weeks now. I tried several fixes, such as going into the device manager and uninstalling the ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing and also initiating a UEFI Hardware Diagnostic test. Both the ac adapter and battery are fine, according to the tests. The battery percentage also wildly changes, for example from 38% remaing up to 43% every time I hover over the battery icon. When I first did the ACPI fix, the battery even toggled between charging and plugged in but not charging every few seconds. What else can I do to solve this problem? I can't take my battery out because I'd have to unscrew and take apart my laptop.

Let's perform the below steps to resolve the issue:
Step 01. Click on the Start Button
Step 02. Type "Device Manager" in the start search box & open the Device Manager
Step 03. Look for Batteries and expand it by click on the + symbol on the left
Step 04. Right Click on "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" & uninstall
Note: This Battery driver will get re-installed automatically when you restart the Notebook again
Step 05. Please Shutdown the Notebook
Step 06. Please remove the Battery and unplug the Power Adapter (If the battery is removable)
Step 07. Press and Hold the Power Button for full 1 Minute
Step 08. Go ahead and put back the Battery and connect the Power Adapter
Step 09. Look for "Plugged In Charging" message on the Battery icon
After performing all the steps if you are facing the same issue still, please perform three more steps:
1. Run a Battery Check in HP Support Assistant[Install the Software if it's not available]
Note: Replace the Battery If Health Check Status shows Replace
2. Update the latest BIOS for your Notebook from HP Support Site
3. Please check your Notebook with a known good Power Adapter & Battery from a different Notebook
Note: If a known good battery is also not charging we need to replace the system board
How to improve the life of a Battery:
1. Power Plan should be set correctly for extended battery life
2. Please keep the Screen Brightness at a lower level
3. Please turn OFF Wi-Fi Connection when not in use
4. Please remove the CD/DVD's from the Optical Drive when not in use
