Thank you DELL-Appu S but none of your suggestions worked the diagnostics results were that everything is ok, the message on the battery icon is Fully Charged (100%)
Thank you for the response. Let's try the following steps.
Please update the BIOS:
Note: Before updating BIOS please ensure that:*Battery is 10%> or >10% charged*Battery charger should be connected*No external devices (flash drives, printers, external hard drives) should be connected*All other programs should be closed and documents saved
Now, calibrate the battery:
Hi tried this but battery still not working so i could not calibrate the battery
Are you able to use the computer only on battery?What happens when you disconnect the AC Adapter from the laptop?Did you try a different battery or an Alternate AC Adapter (if available)?
Please hover the mouse on the battery icon on the taskbar, check the message plugged in,charging / plugged in,not charging. Share a screenshot if possible.
I would also suggest you to check the AC Adapter status in BIOS:
Am not able to use the battery whatsoever, When i disconnect the AC adapter the laptop goes off
I tested the battery in another laptop and it worked plus the chager, also tried a another battery in my laptop but it did not work
plugged in not charging
I had checked the AC adapter and it was fine
I would suggest you to check the AC Adapter status in BIOS as mentioned in my previous post. Check the message if it shows None / Not Detected. Please connect an alternate AC Adapter and check in BIOS. In case BIOS shows None / Not Detected, then perform BIOS defaults.
On the BIOS screen:
If the above steps do not work, there might be an issue with the charger port or the motherboard and may require replacement.
