It might not really be a battery problem but nevertheless, let's troubleshoot from the charger first. Charge the system in question with another system charger of the same product and give your update.

Now I guess the battery is weak!!! You may have to buy another... Please not that Laptop batteries have their own life span. The more you use/charge it, the more is degrades. So I advise you replace your cell.

For your information: Li-Ion batteries begin aging the moment they are produced and there is little you can do to prevent this. What causes the aging is that the electrolyte slowly breaks down the positive plate, causing the internal resistance to increase to a point where no energy can be delivered. A partial charge and low temperatures slow down this process and hence increase the lifetime of your battery.

Li-Ion Battery DOs

-partially discharge and recharge (no memory effect).
-charge at lower voltage.
-take out battery when laptop is running with AC power connected.
-store battery in refrigerator with a 40-50% charge.
-cycle the battery every few weeks or after every 30 partial charges.

Li-Ion Battery DON’Ts

-deep discharge battery.
-trickle charge.
-ultra-fast charge.
-leave fully charged battery in laptop while running on AC power (heat damage).
-freeze battery.

Re: My Laptop Plug In But Not Charging by gigabytes: 5:31pm On Jun 14, 2013
I have same problem with my laptop. Now it not charging and its at zero level. If light goes off, my system follows too.

I changed my charging cable, cleaned the terminals - it didn't work, the only option left for me to try is to sub d battery and see if it will work. I googled the whole thing, some say its board problem some software some hardware. I will be going to computer village to get new battery but before then, I want to swap and see. My computer is Dell inspiron 1420, currently running on windows 8 pro build 9200. Alas, the problem didn't start with windows 8, it started with (follow-come) vista.

Any further help with be appreciated.

Do the following:

- Plug your PC to an AC power, remove and re-insert the battery and take note of the error message you'll see after insertion. (Share the error message here)

- Update your system's battery drivers from your device manager.

If problem persists, go to C'village, and buy a new battery. Mind you, test and see that the new battery charges before you make payment. Testing is allowed.

Goodluck.

If your battery is totally bad, there is no technique that will bring it back to life because once the positive plate breaks down it will always cause the internal resistance to increase to a point where no energy can be delivered.

Carry out your further troubleshooting step with a new battery with the same AC Adapter you have.

This might be due to inadequate VENT.

Do you place your system on the bed while in use? Has anything been preventing the normal internal heat of the system from going out?

Now Let's troubleshoot: Put on the system and confirm if the FAN is working. If otherwise, replace FAN.

If the FAN is working and still your system is hot, take the system to a nearby technician and have the fan blown, in the process of blowing the fan all thiny particles(dust) preventing the fan from working properly will be removed.

And if after all these your system still goes hot then we can start troubleshooting from the system's processor
