Battery Not Charging

There are several reasons a laptop could be having trouble charging. Examine the outlet, cord, and connection first, since these are easily identified and often fixable problems. If you can't find any issues there, changing your laptop settings or resetting its battery management can sometimes solve the problem. If not, replacing the battery might be unavoidable. Ensure that the AC adapter connected to the system meets the minimum wattage for the system to charge the battery. Many high end systems require higher capacity AC adapters than low and mid-range systems. (90 watt for basic & midrange systems, 150 / 180 / 210 watt for select high end systems.)
