2. Change the power adapter of the laptop

If the AC or power adapter of the laptop isn't working correctly, it is also a reason your laptop's battery is lacking your laptop's. A faulty Adapter leads to a "plugged in, not charging" issue. In this case, you have to prefer to change your AC Adapter. Buy an adapter of acceptable quality. One common indication of a wrong power adapter is the whizzing noise when you plug it into the switch point.

- if the AC adapter is silent, it doesn't mean it is not faulty.

- A silent AC adapter also has a fault incompatible with your laptop charging.

To confirm these problems in the AC adapter, try using a different fine-quality AC adapter to charge the Acer laptop's battery.

If the new adapter charges your laptop's battery, the issue is not from your computer but the AC adapter that does not set the laptop properly.

3. Update the Battery drivers of the laptop

If the battery drivers are outdated, then charging issues also arise. To update battery drivers, follow these simple steps -:

Step 1-Turn on your laptop and Press Windows Key + R to open and Run the dialog box.

Step 2- Open the Command prompt page.

Step 3-Type this command devmgmt. MSC and press the ENTER button.

Step 4 - Check the Batteries section list on the page.

Step 5 - Right-click on the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery option.

Step 6 - Select the Uninstall device option from the context menu.

Step 7- select Scan for hardware changes.

Step 8 -Right-click on the  Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery again.

Step 9 - Click on the Update Driver Software option this time.

Note -: You can also install and use software like DriverFix and Driver to regularly update your drivers, so you won't experience charging issues in the future.

4. Clean the laptop port properly

You can also clean the charging port; sometimes, dust settles inside ports and causes charging issues.

5. Check the chord

Check the charger once to see whether it is connected to the wall socket correctly or not. Also, check whether there is any breakage into power chords or not. If there is any damage, then fix it at the service center.
