G550 new battery does not show charging when plugged in


I am replacing my original battery and bought a new one off of ebay.


It came fully charged but my notebook won't show that it's charging (with the A/C plug icon in the system tray) but it's using the battery's power well.


It is G550, 2958 FDU model.


Possibile Answer A:
Is the battery a original Lenovo?
Or a "equivalent" third party battery?

Some of the aftermarket one are problematic, and show "not charging".


Possibile Answer B:

If you receive an error says that "Plugged in but not charging", you may want to check out this article for its solution:  Z570 - Plugged in but not charging status message
