What is the reason for the laptop not charging?

There may be various reasons your laptop suffers and can't charge itself. Some of the main reasons for setting issues are listed below -:

5 Ways to fix the charging issue?

If your HP laptop shows the message "plugged in not charging" over the battery icon, then you can directly use these simple manual methods to resolve this issue -

1. 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 for the battery being lacking your laptop's battery. 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 with the AC adapter, try using a different fine-quality AC adapter to charge the HP 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 trust the laptop properly.

2. Restart or Reboot your laptop

Your laptop may have some troubleshooting or system-related problems. In this case, Restart or Reboot your computer to overcome this issue.

· Turn off your laptop correctly.

·        Flip your laptop to the backside and remove the battery.
