Here are some common reasons why a laptop battery might not charge properly:
Faulty charger or cable: Ensure the charger and cable are compatible with your laptop and in good working condition. Try using a different charger or cable to see if that fixes the problem.
Dirt or debris in the charging port: Dirt or debris can build up in the charging port and prevent the charger from making a good connection. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to gently clean out the port.
Overheating: If your laptop overheats, it can prevent the battery from charging properly. Avoid using your laptop in hot environments and let it cool down before trying to charge it.
Software update: A software update may be required to fix a bug that is preventing the battery from charging properly. Check for any available updates and install them.
Damaged battery: If the battery is damaged, it may not be able to hold a charge. If you have tried all of the above and the battery is still not charging properly, you may need to replace the battery.
Here are some additional things you can try:
Try a different power outlet: If you are using a power strip, try plugging the charger directly into the wall outlet.
Reset the laptop: Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to reset the laptop.
Update the BIOS: The BIOS is the software that controls the basic functions of your laptop. Updating the BIOS may fix a bug that is preventing the battery from charging properly.
