Question by guneap66: Fresh install Windows 7 “plugged in, not charging” battery issue?
I’m a little confused… It seems like other people are having this issue as there are several forums online, but I am having a hard time finding the right solution. I had vista on a Dell 1525, and upgraded to 7 Professional. Ever since I upgraded, the AC adapter would power the laptop but not charge the battery. I didn’t realize what was happening at first, and, thinking that it was my 9 month old hardware, I replaced the battery and power adapter. I am still getting the same message. The battery has a charge, but will not charge when plugged in. I am sure that this is a Windows issue. Anyone have and luck solving it?

Try putting the 7 CD in the drive, booting to it, then select the repair option, then also do a chkdsk -f.
