Battery plugged in not charging

HP Envy 17t Windows 7
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

New computer with very minimal usage.  Basically sat in the box for one year, now, error message states that battery is plugged in not charging.  I've tried testing, and diagnostics reports "unknown."  I've tried a few youtube fixes such as removing the battery drivers and allowing them to reinstall, and tried updating bios.  There is no way that this battery should have died.  Has there been a recall that anyone is aware of?

 

Also, noticed that the case is cracked at the hinge on left side.  I'm super careful and I don't even know how this could happen.  This was not an inexpensive computer!!!

 

Although this sat in box, the warranty is now expired.  

 

Any information would be appreciated.

 

Thank you!

Have you tried removing the battery and starting up with only power cord- then shut down and reinstall battery?

You might check the power adapter on the recall notice: HERE

Hmm, it's not within the power cord recall.
