Question by ubrokmecoraz.: my laptop and charger: “plugged in, not charging”?
I really need some help! I have no idea what to do and the stuff I googled isn’t working!
So yesterday I had my charger plugged in, and I decided to take it out cuz I thought it had been in long enough for my laptop to finally have a full battery. But when I took it out, my computer said “8%”! And when I plugged my charger back in, I noticed it said “plugged in, not charging”. So I googled it and I tried different solutions, but they didn’t work. Plus some were too confusing to understand. Has this happened to anyone? Were you able to fix it? And how? Please help!
It only charges when my laptop is off. I know that’s sorta good, but I still really want to fix it!
I have an HP and windows vista.

most of the times, its the battery problem n sometimes its the charger problem. Restart your system to chk if it works. Otherwise, try pluggin in n out the charger pin into your laptop. Might work. Otherwise, the problem could be with your motherboard as well (as per my DELL technician) Otherwise, call HP Centre n share your problem. You can test ur charger with another HP / Compaq laptop as well, just in case n try their charger on yours.
And this is a very common problem (sply in DELL).
