G50-70 says "battery plugged in, charging" but not actually charging

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

I have read a few other similar posts but none of their solutions worked on my laptop.  The battery percentage stays the same when plugged into the charger.  I first noticed the issue this morning when I powered the laptop on and the percentage was at 44% with the charger plugged in overnight, and it was at 44% when I plugged the charger in last night.  I only put the battery in the laptop a couple days during the week when I'm in school, otherwise I just leave it out and have it powered through the adapter.  The laptop is 7 months old.

 

I tried the Gauge Reset for 8 hours today and it wasn't doing anything so I cancelled it.   I have reinstalled the Energy Management software.  I have also tried shutting it down for 20 minutes and charging it at a different wall outlet.

 

What else can I do?

 

Thank you

I just tried this from another post and it worked!  Battery is charging again.

 

a. turn off the computer and remove the battery and AC adapter.

b. press and hold the power button for 30 secs and reconnect the AC adapter

c. turn ON the computer and continuously tap F2 to boot into the BIOS, when you're in, press F9 to load defaults and press F10 to save and exit.

d. boot into Windows (while still having just the AC adapter plugged-in) then reinsert the battery.

Ctrl-Alt-Del

Solved G5070 battery plugged in but not charging

[ Edited ]

 

My laptop is plugged in and says that the battery is charging, but is not charging at all. It's been at 5% for the past 3 hours.  I tried restarting the computer and nothing has changed. This is the first time I've had any issues with it, the laptop is only about 6 months old.

 

Running windows 8.1 64bit
