"Plugged In, Not Charging" Toshiba
by Kiavelle - 11/3/11 12:14 PM
I have a Toshiba laptop (I don't know exactly what kind... I suppose I can look... somewhere. XD) that has stopped charging the battery.
I got this laptop Christmas 2010, so it is under a year old, but we've had problems with the warranty. We can't seem to find anything that shows when we bought the computer. Also, we didn't pay with the credit card, so that doesn't help us.
Anyway, I noticed last night that the battery charging icon says "Plugged in, not charging". I looked at a thread here about someone with the same problem, and they were able to fix it by uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery thing, and then reinstalling it. So I tried that, but it did not work for me.
I cannot remember any time of the computer being dropped, and the battery has been working fine up to this point, with a charge of about 1 1/2, 2 hours. It's just been since last night that we've had this problem.
I think it happened right after the computer started beeping because it needed plugged in since the battery had run out of charge (After being unplugged for about an hour and a half).
I have let the charge run down to about 10 minutes several times before, but this is obviously the first time the computer would not charge the battery.
Thanks for any help!
